Family Immigration and Family Petitions

United States citizens and lawful permanent residents have the unique and powerful ability to sponsor certain types relatives for their own green cards. This can lead to family members becoming lawful permanent residents themselves and, eventually, even citizens.

Relatives are categorized into “immediate” or “preference” relatives based on the nature of the familial relationship and whether you are a citizen or lawful permanent resident. Preference relatives are subject to an annual visa cap and long wait times, making smart legal strategy especially important.

Family immigration involving marriages can also be more challenging. United States Citizenship and Immigration Services (USCIS) will seek to verify the authenticity of your relationship, which requires documentation and a thorough, in-person interview.

We can potentially help you with your complex immigration matter. Call (212) 227-8020 or contact us online to get started.
