Families

“Remember, remember always, that all of us, and you and I especially, are descended from immigrants and revolutionists.” ~ Franklin D. Roosevelt

 

Family unity is one of the four goals of the U.S. immigration system.  Notwithstanding the system is always not kind to families.  The key to a successful family based immigration process is to know your processing options and plan appropriately.  

We represent families and individuals from around the world.  We explore all available options and provide clear guidance on available immigration processes, including benefits, risk, processing times and other information needed by families and individuals to make informed decisions.  

U.S. Citizens may sponsor their fiancés, spouses, children (whether minor or adult, whether married or unmarried), parents and brothers/sisters.  U.S. Permanent Residents may sponsor their spouses and minor unmarried children.

The family based immigration options include:

 

Family-Based Temporary Visas

B-2 Visitor Visa 

K-1Fiancé Visa 

Family-Based Permanent Residency

I-130 Immediate Relative Petitions

I-130 Preference Petitions

Adjustment of Status

Consular Processing

Citizenship

Waivers

Waivers of Inadmissibility (including Provisional Waivers)

Other

Deferred Action for Childhood Applicants (DACA)

Deferred Action Applications (non-DACA)

Violence Against Women Act (VAWA) Petitions

NACARA

As some family-based immigration processes take years to complete, each family situation will also be evaluated for other processing options, e.g. Student Visa, Employment-Based Temporary Visa, etc.
