immigration through marriage to Mexican
I am a US citizen and recently married a Mexican man (he's residing in Mexico and I live in the U.S.). He wants to bring me and my son (from a previous relationship) to reside with him in Mexico. Does he begin the immigration process for us through the INM in Mexico? Or do I need to apply through the Consulate in NYC?? Can't find a clear answer to this...
Hello Elizabeth, Im Jesus Farrera, im a lawyer Specialist in migration laws in mexico,
For these procedure, are two ways.
1.- You have to request the the Visa for Family Unit, This visa had to be request to the INM in mexico, For your Husband, IF HE is in MEXICO!, and if HE IS in USA, he can request to the consulate in NY with you and your SON, Your son has to be Under Age for have the Visa.
