An IR-2 Child Visa is a type of visa for children under the age of 21 who are the unmarried children of a U.S. citizen. The IR-2 visa allows the child to enter the United States as a lawful permanent resident.
To apply for an IR-2 Child Visa, the U.S. citizen parent must file a petition on behalf of the child with the U.S. Citizenship and Immigration Services (USCIS). The petition must include documentation to establish the relationship between the U.S. citizen parent and the child, such as a birth certificate, adoption decree, or other legal documents.
Once the petition is approved, the child can apply for an IR-2 visa at a U.S. embassy or consulate in their home country. The child must attend an interview with a consular officer, provide documentation to establish their eligibility for the visa, and pass a medical exam and security clearance.
If the IR-2 visa is approved, the child can enter the United States as a lawful permanent resident. Once the child enters the United States, they will receive a green card and can live and work in the United States permanently. The child can also later apply for U.S. citizenship if they meet the eligibility requirements.
It is important to note that the eligibility requirements and application process for an IR-2 Child Visa can be complex and require careful attention to detail. The LAWCADDY process makes completing the application and providing the documentation to support it simple and straightforward so you can bring your child to the US as quickly as possible.
