Limit of Age for Petition

Aggie Hoffman

What is the limit of age for a US citizen to petition for a child of his wife?

If you married your wife before the child’s 18th birthday, (s)he is your permanent step child. You may petition for her/him him even after (s)he is 21. The child may immigrate with your wife or follow after her. To properly process the case, you should retain the services of an experienced immigration lawyer.
