Child Visa Attorney in Houston

Helping You Bring Your Child Safely to the United States

Are you attempting to obtain a visa for the child of your spouse? At the Law Office of Mina Amiry, PLLC, we understand that the process of marrying someone who is not from the United States and the legal paperwork that comes with it can be stressful and confusing. We are here to address any concerns you may have that could delay or prevent your child from lawful entry or from obtaining a green card.


Please call (832) 769-3400 for a case evaluation with a Houston immigration lawyer to discuss your questions about the process.


Who Can Sponsor a Child Visa?

There are many different reasons why you may be petitioning for a child visa. As a U.S. citizen, you are able to sponsor your children and your spouse's children under the age of 21. You can also petition for unmarried children who are over the age of 21. If you are an LPR (lawful permanent resident), you can sponsor your unmarried children of any age.

There are also a number of rules and regulations, as well as deadlines and paperwork to contend with during the application process. Having a Houston immigration attorney to guide you is essential.

Types of Child Visas We Handle

Because there are different types of immigration situations, there are different types of child visas which may apply to your circumstances. We have extensive knowledge of all types of visas, including those appropriate for immigrant children.

The types of child visas we work with include:

  • K2 visa
  • IR-2 visa
  • CR-2 visa

The K2 visa is to be given to the children of a fiancé who has come to the United States to marry a U.S. citizen or LPR. IR-2 visas and CR-2 visas are those which can be given to the children of IR-1 and CR-2 visa recipients. The IR-2 visa can also be used in the case of adopted children.
