we will do it together
Sponsoring a family is the most popular way for people to obtain an immigrant visa or green card in the U.S. Our Law Firm will assist you if you have an eligible relative for whom you wish to receive a family-based visa.
The Immigration and Nationality Act (INA) distinguishes family-based immigrant visas into two categories. Immediate relative visas are for immigrants with immediate family ties, and the government does not set a cap on the number of people who may apply per fiscal year (unlimited). The “Family Preference Immigrant” visa is the second category of visas, and these visas are “restricted” or “capped” to a limited number each year.
This does not imply that the procedure will be simple or swift, and it is strongly recommended that you seek the advice of our expert attorney in any immigration matter.
Who are considered as Immediate Relatives?
Who is a Family Preference Immigrant?
Grandparents, uncles, aunts, cousins, and in-laws are unable to sponsor family members for immigration.
Getting a Green Card
You must file a petition with the Department of Homeland Security to sponsor your relative to legalize his or her status in the United States. You must show that your marriage is bona fide (i.e., not entered into to evade US immigration laws) and that you are a qualified petitioner for spousal petitions
Citizens of the United States who want to bring their future husbands or wives to the United States for marriage may apply for a Fiancee Visa, also known as a K-1 visa, which can be obtained by the fiance (e) at a US embassy or consulate abroad until approved. Minor children of a fiance (e) are eligible for K-2 visas and may accompany him. Within 90 days of the prospective spouse’s entrance into the United States, the two must marry.
