Minors’ Signatures on USCIS Documents

July 16th, 2009 | by D.M. | Category: News

It is often that minor children are included in immigration filings done by one or both of their parents.  In such cases, a separate application, often accompanied by a G-28 form, are prepared and properly filed.  In many of those instances, a question arises as to who can or must sign the paperwork on behalf of the child.

All applicants 14 years and older must sign their own applications, per 8 CFR 103.2(a)(2).  Parents or legal guardians may sign applications on behalf of children under the age of 14.
