I am a U.S. citizen living in TN, my husband's 12 years old niece live with her mother in Vancouver,Canada. My husband and I would like to invite our niece to come visit us during summer. Her permanent resident card expired and she sent in all the documents to renew it since February 22,2010. She hasn't receive her new card yet. What will be the best way that you'll recommend us to do or her to do so she can come visit. Can she travel outside of the country to visit without her permanent resident card and then go apply for the travel document at the Canadian consulate later?? Can she sign any types of document since she still a minor (12years old) without her mother?? Can her mother write a letter to show that her grandmother can be her temporary guardian while she's come to stay with us???
