Under U.S. immigration law, citizens (and in some cases, legal permanent residents) can submit a petition that allows certain family members to immigrate to the United States. In some cases, an immigrant visa may be immediately available to the foreign family member. In other cases, there may be a considerable wait before an immigrant visa becomes available. In either case, an experienced immigration attorney can help you understand your options.
Family-based petitions represent one of the major ways that people can immigrate to the United States and obtain legal permanent resident status (also known as a “green card”) and eventually citizenship. If you have a spouse, parent, son, daughter, or sibling who is a U.S. citizen, they may be able to file a petition on your behalf that will allow you to obtain an immigrant visa. Similarly, if you have a spouse, parent, son, or daughter who is a legal permanent resident (or “green card holder”), they may able to file a petition on your behalf.. In some circumstances, a fiancé may be able to file a petition on your behalf as well.
The U.S. immigration system is complex and often difficult to navigate. Even a petition that seems simple and straightforward often involves complex issues that may not be easily understood by non-experts. Mistakes in the application may result in a denial, but can sometimes have even worse long-term consequences.
