FAMILY IMMIGRATION LAWYER IN ORLANDO
LET US HELP YOU BRING YOUR FAMILY TO THE U.S.
As a permanent resident in the United States, you have the right to petition the U.S. government on behalf of a family member who is currently a citizen of another country. If you are a permanent resident of the United States, you may only sponsor your immediate family members – meaning your spouse and your child who is under 21 years of age, or an unmarried child who is over 21 and unmarried.
If you are a citizen of the United States, however, you may sponsor:
- Your spouse
- Your child under 21
- Your unmarried children who are over 21 and their children
- Your married children and their children
- Your parents if you are 21 or older
- Your siblings and their families if you are 21 or older
An experienced immigration lawyer in Orlando can help walk you through the process of obtaining legal residency for your family members. You will need to submit an application for approval to the United States Citizenship and Immigration Services (USCIS). Forms submitted on behalf of your immediate family members – your spouse and / or children – will receive the highest priority as well as the shortest wait time.
When you petition on behalf of a family member, you will need to gather and submit certain documents, including a Form I-130, Petition for Alien Relative, in addition to the required fee. You will also need to submit proof of your citizenship or permanent residency as well as proof of your relationship to the individual in question. The required documents will vary depending on your relationship to the family member.
