Customer Question

My daughter has been dating this boyfriend for a couple of months now. Before they started dating they applied for the 2016 DV lottery as singles. Now the boyfriend is a winner of DV 2016. He wants to include my daughter in his application. My daughter happens to have a child with a different man who is one year old now. How do they go about it? Does the father of the child needs to be involved? They are all in Kenya.

Hello, my name is ***** ***** I will be the attorney helping you today.
If your daughter and her boyfriend were not married when they applied and he did not include your daughter's name in the application, it's ok! They can get married now or very soon. The important thing is that they must be married before he submit his immigrant visa application to the US embassy/consulate to begin the process. She and the daughter must be listed on the application.
At the US embassy, proof that your wife has full custody of the daughter will be required.
Good luck to you during this process and I hope this answer has helped you!
