Family Immigration to the USA

There are many different ways that an individual can come to America. One of these ways, and commonly used, is through the sponsorship and assistance of a family member that is legally residing in the USA. This is a long process and requires many steps to be completed before the immigration can take place. In the end however, a green card can be issued and all of your hard and diligent work will see fruit. Not everyone's situations can qualify them for family-based immigration, so speak with a lawyer who can determine whether this is the best form of immigration for you. If it is, a petition for an alien relative must be made in order for the process to begin.

Family Immigration Petitions

There are different ways that a family member to petition for an alien relative to receive a green card. For many, the deciding factor is based on whether or not the petitioner is a U.S. citizen or green card holder. There are two categories by which we can divide the family immigration petition. The first category is for immediate relatives, either a spouse, unmarried children, or parents. This group has a larger chance of obtaining family-based immigration. The second group which encompasses other family members, includes brothers and sisters, married children, and unmarried children over 21 years of age. Understanding the different categories is very important to obtain a complete comprehension of this area of immigration law.
