A: As another colleague indicated, a U.S. Citizen Child cannot petition for a parent until that child is 21 years old. That being said, the father of your child should consult with a competent immigration attorney who can help to explore all possible paths to gaining legal status. An experienced immigration attorney will ask many questions to see if some other option exists.
