If you are seeking lawful permanent resident status in the United States, or you are a current U.S. citizen or lawful resident who is hoping to help a family member immigrate, talk to an attorney today to discuss whether pursuing a family-based immigrant visa is a viable option.
In order to apply for a family-based immigrant visa as a foreign citizen, you must be sponsored by an immediate relative who is:
At least 21 years of age, and;
Either a U.S. citizen or a U.S. lawful permanent resident
Once you have determined your eligibility to receive or give sponsorship, you must consider which kind of family-based immigrant visa best fits your family's specific situation.
There are two kinds of family-based immigrant visas: immediate relative visas and family preference visas.
Immediate relative visas are reserved for applicants who have close familial relationships with U.S. citizens. If your spouse, parent, or child is currently a citizen of the United States, consider an immediate relative visa. There is no annual limit to the number of immigrants who can be granted residency in the immediate relative category.
Family preference visas are right for applicants with specific, more distant familial relationships to U.S. citizens or U.S. green card holders. Only a certain number of immigrants in the family preference category are granted residency in the United States each year.
If you are a U.S. citizen or green card holder, you may be wondering which members of your family you are able to sponsor for permanent residency. As a citizen, you can file an immigrant visa petition for your spouse, son, daughter, brother, sister, or parent. As a green card holder, you are only able to file a petition for your spouse or unmarried son or daughter.
While securing a family-based immigrant visa may seem simple, the process can be complex and obstacles can arise. Let our firm minimize the frustrations you may face along the way.
