We work with families to help reunite loved ones

Individuals in the United States can sponsor their family members to immigrate to the United States through Family-Based Petitions. The Immigration and Nationality Act permits foreigners to immigrate to the United States if they have a family member who is a U.S. citizen or legal permanent resident.

What You Should Know about Family-Based Petitions

If you have a family member who is a U.S. citizen or permanent resident, you may be eligible for sponsorship to get a U.S. visa. It's a green card. The sponsored individual will be able to reside and work in the United States with the help of a Sponsorship Visa USA. Fill out our immigration evaluation form, and we'll contact you to talk about your alternatives and eligibility.

Steps to Applying for a US Family Visa:

For a U.S. Lawful Permanent Resident to properly sponsor a family member, precise requirements must be followed. These are the following:

  • U.S. citizen or permanent resident files visa petition
  • USCIS decides on the visa petition
  • Family Preference relatives wait until a visa becomes available
  • Immigrant applies for an immigrant visa or Green Card

Although the concept of family sponsorship appears simple, there are several exceptions and details to be aware of. We advocate talking with an expert legal attorney who knows how to correctly prepare successful family sponsorship applications rather than risking having your efforts rejected due to a missing detail on a document or an ineligible scenario.
