I have permanent resident status and went to the Puerto Vallarta Immigration office yesterday (3/14/17) with my 35 years old daughter for her application for permanent residence using Vinculo familiar. She was told it is not possible for children over 18 years of age.
So, if others have had success in a different office, please share that location and we can try there. Or, we could attempt to convince this office if we had sufficient proof that it is legal for adult children.
Thanks in advance.
It isnīt legal to have an adult children apply under the "vinculo familiar" law. They have to apply at a Mexican Consulate and show proof of financial solvency. Your INM office advised you of the correct law.
