How do I petition for my stepparent?

If you are applying to bring your stepparent to the United States to live, you must file the following with the U.S. Citizenship and Immigration Services:

  • Form I-130, Petition for Alien Relative (if you are filing for both parents, you must file a separate petition for each parent)
  • A copy of your birth certificate showing your name and the names of your birth parents
  • If you were not born in the U.S., a copy of either
  • Your Certificate of Naturalization or Citizenship, or
  • Your U.S. passport
  • A copy of the civil marriage certificate of your birth parent to your stepparent showing that the marriage occurred before your 18th birthday
  • A copy of any divorce decrees, death certificates, or annulment decrees that would verify the termination of any previous marriage(s) entered into by your birth parent or stepparent

Note: If anyone’s name has been legally changed (differs from the name on his or her birth certificate), evidence of the name change must be provided.
