Immigration Law Questions? Ask an Immigration Lawyer.
Thank You for posting your question to just answer today. This is attorney Bill offering legal information specific to your concerns.
If your mother would like to come to the US on tourist visa she may be eligible under ESTA visa waiver programs depending on her citizenship which you haven't disclosed ?
If she isn't from a country recognized by ESTA she needs to apply for her own tourist visa at her nearest consulate. This is the B1/B2 visa that she would be applying for.
Both are non-immigrant visas.
Should you wish to apply for her green card you file application i-130 with USCIS.
