Miami, FL asked in Immigration Law for Florida

Q: If a derivative child was not included on the initial i-130 but is showing up in the CEAC to Accompany. can they?

We petitioned only for my aunt but now her son, who has not 18 at the time the petition was filed and is not yet 21 now until May of next year , is showing up on the CEAC/ NVC site and giving us the option to Accompany or follow to join. Would he be able to come over to the USA if he wasn't added on the initial i-130?

A: Yes. When you go into the CEAC/NVC website, you can pay the immigrant visa fees and complete the DS-260 application on line.
