    I assumed the marriage took place before the step-child reached 18. I guess I might have been too quick with that one. If that is the case, step-mom USC can petition for step-child.

    "No can do" on your wife sponsoring your married daughter. The immigration law defines a "child" as an unmarried person under the age of 21 (a minor) who is:

    A stepchild if the marriage creating the steprelationship took place before the child reached the age of 18.

    A lawful permanent resident may not petition for a married son or daughter.

    After you naturalize you can petition her.
    A U.S. citizen may petition for:
    A child (unmarried and under 21 years of age)
    An unmarried son or daughter ( 21 years of age and older)
    A married son or daughter of any age

    Your U.S. citizen spouse can petition for step-child as an immeidate relative immediately if the marriage occurred before step-child reached age 18. Good luck.

    You should speak to an attorney to see if your wife adopted your daugher if she could qualify as an immediate relative. If she did, then she could come to the USA while the application was pending, I think.

    Is your daughter also your wife's daughter (legally)? If not, you may have to wait until you get citizenship in order to sponsor her yourself. (I'm not a lawyer.)
