What kind of documentation do I need from my stepdaughters mother to get my stepdaughters green card? I am a U.S. Citizen. My step daughter is a Mexican citizen and lives with her mom in Mexico.

You'll need your step-daughter's birth certificate, your own marriage certificate to her mother showing that you married her before your step-daughter turned 18 years of age, your proof of US citizenship, and any divorce certificates showing prior marriages as having been terminated.
You'll also need to file the immediate relative petition on behalf of the step-daughter and go through the immigrant visa process as the sponsor.
You may contact me for a free consulation if you wish.
