Can my mother continue a visa petition that my father started? 3 Answers as of June 09, 2011When I was 17 years old my U.S. citizen father applied for a visa for me to reside in the U.S. while I was living in Mexico, but he never finished the process. He was approved on his petition, however. My mother now is a U.S. citizen, can she continue that previous process? Or will we have to start another one? I am now 25 years old.

You have to start again. But you should look at the old petition and see how far along he got. I don't know what he never finished the process means. Did he file it? Was it approved? You need to speak to an experienced immigration attorney and bring all the papers related to your case.
