Family Based Immigration

U.S. citizens and permanent residents may petition to sponsor close relatives. For citizens, these relatives include spouses, children, parents and siblings. Permanent residents can sponsor spouses and children.

Our office will determine eligibility, prepare necessary petitions and applications, advise on adequacy of supporting documentation, attend interviews with our clients, and attend to all follow-up matters necessary to obtain permanent residency either through stateside adjudication by the Department of Homeland Security’s Citizenship and Immigration Services (USCIS) or through visa processing at the U.S consular posts abroad.  If there are potential grounds of inadmissibility, we will assess those and prepare waivers if necessary.

Being a Permanent Resident status allows a family member to live and work in the United States permanently. A Green Card is a different name for Permanent Residency.
