A: No, you cannot petition for a grandchild. Your son can petition for his child.

A: Probably not. If your son managed to derive citizenship before his eighteenth birthday, this may help.

I strongly recommend an appointment or teleconference with a competent and experienced immigration attorney before there are any other complications. Good luck!
