A: I'm confused by your question, as only individuals who need to enter the U.S. require a visa. This child of an LPR is already in the U.S. Now, many children of LPR's enter as derivatives. My follow up question, is how did your child enter the U.S.? I would need more information to answer this question. Though, it seems that you may have petitioned the child, in which case, they could not wait in the U.S. to obtain their green card and could face a host of complex inadmissibility issues if they do. Though, more information is needed, and this type of case is typically handled by an immigration attorney. Good luck! Rodney Alberto, Esq., 732-200-0779
