Uniting Families From Around The Globe
According to the National Immigration Forum, family connections are responsible for more than half of all legal immigration to the United States. While family-based immigration is the most common path for hopeful applicants around the globe, it is still not always a smooth journey. The safest way to ensure your family-based immigration goals are met is through the guidance of a dedicated and highly qualified family immigration attorney.
Attorney Mary Kennedy and her team at The Law Offices of Mary Kennedy have extensive experience helping immigrants from around the world achieve their immigration dreams through family-based immigration.
Paths To Family-Based Immigration
Those family members who are looking to sponsor a loved one can depend on family-based immigration attorney Mary Kennedy to handle their petition. Avenues for those looking to adjust their status and receive a green card include marriage-based petitions (I-130 petitions), fiancée visas (K1 visas), family visas, and naturalization.
While both U.S. citizens and lawful permanent residents can petition for a spouse or an unmarried son or daughter, only citizens can sponsor a parent or a sibling. There are two types of family-based immigration visas in the US: immediate relative visas, which are unlimited each year, and family preference visas, which are limited, meaning applicants often experience a long waiting period.
There is a huge amount of U.S. Citizen and Immigration Services (USCIS) forms to complete to adjust someone’s status, plus a number of fees and civil documents required to prove the relationship. Individuals attempting to handle their own case can easily become overwhelmed by the bureaucracy, and one mistake in filing your paperwork can get your case delayed, dismissed, or even denied.
For those reasons, we recommend hiring a qualified family-based immigration and fiancée visa attorney to help you handle your case to ensure that everything is filed correctly and efficiently. After advising you on the merits of your case and the obstacles you might face, our team here at the Law Offices of Mary Kennedy will help you build a strong petition with ample documentation and prep you for your interview at a USCIS office or a U.S. consulate.
We take pride in our ability to unite our clients with their loved ones from around the globe. If you’re seeking a family-based immigration visa, contact our office today to meet with our family visa lawyer and discuss the best option for you and your family.
What Are The Different Types Of Family-Based Visas?
In addition to the visas previously mentioned, there are other family-based visas, such as the K-3 visa. The purpose of the K-3 visa, as passed by Congress, is to help married couples be together in United States earlier. A K-3 visa allows a couple to be together after getting married abroad while waiting for their I-130 petition to get approved… Read more
