    Can I Help My Family Member Become a Legal Resident?

    Working through the process in order to unite your family

    As the world has gotten smaller, families are more often scattered across different countries. International borders make it difficult for family members to be with each other. Although according to the Rochester family lawyers one of the goals of the according to immigration laws of the United States is to promote family unity, the U.S. inmigración process is complex and cumbersome. This can make it difficult for your loved ones to obtain citizenship or permanent legal residency status and live near one another.

    Our Expert Phoenix Immigration Lawyers Can Help Reunite FamiliesBoth United States citizens and Family Lawyers Dandenong may petition for certain relatives to live in the United States permanently. The process is significantly less cumbersome for “immediate relatives” of U.S. citizens. These include spouses, unmarried children under 21 years of age (including children and orphans adopted abroad), and the parents of citizens who are at least 21 years of age.
