IR-2 Visa for a Child

Who is eligible to petition for a child?

US citizens may sponsor children of any age, married or unmarried. That is, any biological offspring of any age (0-100+) whether they’re married or not.  US citizens may also petition for stepchildren aged 20 or under, if the marriage creating the steprelationship took place before the child reached the age of 18.

Lawful permanent residents may sponsor unmarried children of any age (0-100+), but may not sponsor any married children.

IR2 Visa Timeline

For unmarried children under the age of 21, the timeline is usually between 6 and 8 months from start to finish, but individual results may vary.

Depending on the country your child is coming from, if they’re 21 or older, timelines may take years. Check priority dates for your country for a more accurate timeline.

Approval is guaranteed or your money back.  Guarantee

guarantee-small1Our guarantee is a money-back promise if you are denied. Nobody can guarantee that your petition will be approved. However, if you are denied after we prepare and mail the documents, you answered everything 100% honestly with no omissions, you respond appropriately to all government requests, you meet the income requirements and are not denied due to criminal activity, we will refund 100% of the fees you paid to RapidVisa. Guarantee does not apply to fiancee visas if you have not met in person within 24 months of filing since these petition are rarely approved. Guarantee does not apply to proxy marriages. Government fees are not refundable. Your refund request must include copies of all correspondence with the government leading up to your denial.
