Family-Based Immigration Petitions
When it comes to our immigration services, protecting and uniting families is near to our hearts. Family-based petitions include the following:
Immediate Relative Immigrant Petition: This category allows a U.S. Citizen to petition for a family member without waiting for visa availability, as visas are always available if the U.S. Citizen is petitioning for his/her (1) spouse, (2) unmarried child under the age of 21; and (3) parent if the Petitioner is over the age of 21.
Preference Category Immigrant Petition: This category allows an individual to petition for family member(s) but his/her family member(s) is subject to a visa backlog based on family category and country limitation. These categories include: (F1) U.S. Citizen parent applying for his/her unmarried child over the age of 21; (F2A) Lawful Permanent Resident applying for his/her spouse and/or unmarried child under the age of 21; (F2B) Lawful Permanent Resident applying for his/her unmarried child over the age of 21; (F3) U.S. Citizen parent applying for his/her married child; and (F4) U.S. Citizen applying for his/her sibling.
Fiancee Petition: This is a non-immigrant visa that permits the fiancee of a U.S. citizen to enter the United States and marry the Petitioner within 90 days of arrival. Once married, the spouse may apply for permanent residence and remain in the United States while the government process the application.
Petition to Remove Conditions of Residence: Individuals who obtained permanent resident through marriage must apply to remove the conditions of his/her residence 90 days prior to the expiration of your permanent residence. The petition can be filed jointly with your spouse or your parent’s spouse OR a waiver must be requested if you are unable to file a joint petition. If your petition is denied, your rights and privileges of permanent residency is terminated and you may be place in removal proceedings. We can provide assistance at any part of this process!
Waivers of Inadmissibility: Despite a successful immigrant petition, your family member may be inadmissible and forbidden to enter the United States for various reasons such as a prior removal from the United States, criminal conviction, unlawful presence, health-related issue, immigration fraud and misrepresentation, etc. We have successfully put together many waiver of inadmissibility application(s) to unite family members. Before you start the immigration process, you must be aware of circumstance(s) that may prohibit your loved ones from entering or re-entering the United States if he/she must leave to consular process. Do not wait until your family member is stuck outside of the United States. Contact us so we can discuss your situation today!
