My fiancee would like her child to get a visa

U.S. Immigration Legal Advisors in Bangkok, Thailand answers frequently asked complex American Visa questions

Question: My fiancee would like her child to get a visa, but she doesn’t have custody documents, what can we do to get her child a visa to come to America with my fiancee?

Answer by U.S. Immigration Legal Advisors in Bangkok, Thailand: US laws and Thai laws are not the same with regard to child custody. For example: in Thailand a parent can obtain child custody at a district office that is legally enforceable in Thailand. In the US a parent can not obtain child custody at a city or town hall. In order for the Embassy to issue a visa for a child to immigrate to the US with one parent, the other parent must consent in writing or the immigrating parent requesting the visa must have sole legal and physical custody awarded from the court. Our firm “U.S. Immigration Legal Advisors” employs full-time Thai lawyers whose sole function is obtaining child custody orders from the courts.
