Petitioning for Family-Based Immigration
If you live in another country and want to come live permanently in the U.S., you must first be petitioned by a relative who is a U.S. citizen or green-card holder. The petitioner must be at least 21 years old.
Eligible parties can petition under the following two visa categories:
- Immediate Relative: For beneficiaries who have close family relationships with U.S. citizens. This can be a spouse, child, or parent.
- Fiance Visa: If you are marrying a foreigner, you may apply for a K-1 Fiance visa.
- Family Preference: For beneficiaries with specific and distant family relationships with a U.S. citizen. Beneficiaries with certain relationships with green-card holders can also be petitioned under this category.
Why Do I Need an Immigration Lawyer?
If you want to file a petition for family-based immigration on behalf of a loved one, you need to consult with a seasoned lawyer to make sure you properly complete all of the paperwork and file the right documents to ensure your petition can be approved. After you file a family preference petition, your loved one will have to wait for a visa number to become available. However, awaiting a priority date to become current for these visas can take years, which is why you should have a lawyer handle your case and keep you updated on its progress.
