Family Green Card Attorneys
It goes without saying that we want our family members close to us. If you are a U.S. citizen or a permanent resident, you can help certain family members to come to the U.S. legally (or get a green card, if they are already here).
This process has potential complexities and difficulties that need to be recognized and effectively resolved before you can help your loved one become a permanent resident. Our skilled attorneys can help you get through this process smoothly.
U.S. citizens can help their immediate relatives secure a green card. Immediate relatives of U.S. citizens include:
- Unmarried children under the age of 21
Other relatives fall into categories called preferences. A certain number of visas are afforded to each category per year. The higher the preference, the sooner the applicant will be eligible to receive a green card. The preferences are:
- First preference – Unmarried children over 21 of U.S. citizens
- Second preference – Married children of U.S. citizens
- Third preference – Siblings of U.S. citizens
Permanent residents can help spouses and unmarried children secure green cards.
The process for helping a loved one become a permanent resident is complicated and filled with potential pitfalls that can derail efforts to help a relative. It is imperative that you have skilled counsel to help you through these processes.
