Question
I am a US citizen aged 16 years in high school. My mom lives in Africa and I want her to join me by migrating to the US. Can i sponsor her application? If so how? If not so, why?

Answer
Loy,
Parents of U.S. citizens are eligible to apply for permanent resident status as immediate relatives, but only if the citizen is 21 years of age or older. Thus, if you want to apply for your mother, you are going to have to wait until you are twenty-one.
Good Luck
