Hello and thank you for using our service. My name isXXXXX and I am a licensed attorney and will try my best to help you. I just ask for two things: 1) Before you sign off, please remember to rate me positively as that is the only way that I am paid and your question does not close after you rate me so I can still answer additional questions without additional charge if you have follow-ups even weeks or months later; and, 2) IF I have bad news for you, please remember I am only the messenger. When you rate me, it is my service to you that you rate, not whether the news is good or bad. I will try my best to give you a solution, but sometimes the law does not have a good one.

we are both from Africa (Tanzania).
The process generally takes about a year for you to file the I-130 for your child and bring him to the U.S. In other words, the process isn't just that you can go there and bring him back with you. At least not immediately. Here is a link to the process:

Your son's condition is serious, but it is not an emergency condition. However, you can try two things:

1) Try to expedite the process and here is a link on how to do that:

2) You can apply for a Humanitarian Parole to bring him quicker to the U.S. and just do Adjustment of Status to Residency while in the U.S. Here is a link:

Please let me know if you have additional questions and please do not forget to rate my service to you (not the state of the law) as that is the only way that I can get credit for my assistance. Even after you rate the service, I can still answer additional questions for you without additional charge. If you do rate me positively, a bonus is always appreciated. If you would like to request me in the future, just go to http://www.justanswer.com/law/expert-guillermosenmartin/. Thank you!
