What is Family-Based Immigration?

Family-based immigration is a category of visas that allow US citizens and lawful permanent residents (i.e., green card holders) to sponsor certain family members to live in the United States. This includes immediate relatives such as spouses, parents, and unmarried children under 21 of US citizens and other family preference categories for more distant relatives, including adult children and siblings of US citizens.

How Immigration Attorneys Assist in Family-Based Immigration Cases

Immigration attorneys play a crucial role in assisting and guiding individuals through the intricacies of the process. With their expertise and experience, immigration attorneys provide invaluable support to families seeking to reunite in the United States. This includes:

Expert Advice and Guidance

Immigration attorneys possess in-depth knowledge of immigration laws and regulations. They assess each family’s unique circumstances and provide expert advice on the best immigration options available, ensuring families choose the most appropriate and effective route for their case.

Document Preparation

Family-based immigration cases involve a significant amount of paperwork and documentation. Immigration attorneys assist in gathering and preparing necessary forms, affidavits, and supporting evidence to ensure that all requirements are met and the case can be presented accurately and persuasively.

Communication with Government Agencies

Immigration attorneys act as intermediaries between their clients and the US Citizenship and Immigration Services (USCIS) or other government agencies. They handle all communications to help expedite the application process and address any potential issues that may arise.

Legal Representation

Immigration attorneys provide legal representation throughout the family-based immigration process. They advocate on behalf of their clients, attend interviews with them, and make sure they’re prepared for any questions from immigration officials.
