Family Immigration

Immigration law is a complex collection of laws and regulations, plus countless memos, and administrative manuals. The elements of family immigration law are neither different nor simple. It is especially true in light of the fact that immigration laws have become increasingly complex with the development and constant changes under political pressure, administrative changes, and resource availability.

Bring Your Family Together in the U.S.

A U.S. citizen or permanent resident can sponsor a specific family member to get a green card. Your status as an LPR or U.S. citizen determines whether your family is eligible to sponsor.

American citizens can sponsor the following members:

  • A Spouse
  • An Unmarried Child Under 21
  • A Fiancé(e)
  • An Unmarried Son or Daughter Over 21
  • A Parent, if the Petitioner is 21 or Older
  • A Married Son or Daughter of Any Age

A U.S. Permanent Resident may sponsor the following family members:

  • A Spouse
  • An Unmarried Son or Daughter

In addition to the first two categories, people in certain other categories in the United States can also apply to their spouses or unmarried children. For example, refugees and asylum seekers can apply to their spouses and children. U visa applicants can submit applications to their spouses and children before or after the U visa is approved.

In all these cases, certain rules may or may not apply to your situation. Therefore, anyone considering submitting a family-based immigration application should consult an experienced and reputable immigration lawyer.
