Hello GUZ;

 

My USC petition for my step son ( 13 years old ) just got approved .

 

My wife is in China now , It would be most convenient for her to prepare any notarized documents while she is there .

 

Can you tell us what are going to be needed for minor child from China ?

 

Thanks.

I don't think you will get a response from the consulate rep here.  USCONGUZ: Member Since 14 Oct 2005 OFFLINE Last Active Sep 09 2009 01:57 AM

 

Anyway the answer will be:

 

  • Passport with at least 3 to 6 months validity left.
  • Notary birth cert + Translation
  • Since less than Age 16 no police cert needed...
  • I would have Marriage Cert establishing petitioner stepparent relationship to child.
  • Consent of custodial parent allowing leaving China

Thanks so much .  

Of course, there is the custody letter fromt the court or an agreement from the custody parent that the minor child  is allowed to immigrate to the US.  This is what so called as NO Legal Impedement as listed in one of the response from GUZ way back then.

just to be sure .  The documents should be brought in the same day as the interview or the day before ?

I was checking the GUZ procedure , there is no mention.

 

Thanks.

Unfortunately, it's usually 1 to 3 weeks, with around 2 weeks being the norm.

Yes - I figure that anything longer than ONE day is completely unreasonable, especially considering that foreigners are supposed to have their passport with them at all times and cannot travel without it.
