The immigration system allows both U.S. citizens and current green card holders to bring certain family members to the United States and obtain permanent residency.
For U.S. citizens, we can help obtain permanent residency for the following relatives:
- Unmarried children 21 and younger
Other relatives may also be able to obtain a green card through a "family preference category." This is available to:
- Unmarried children 21 and older, including adopted children and stepchildren
- Married children, regardless of age
- Siblings (half and step)
For current green card holders, we can help obtain permanent residency for the following relatives:
- Unmarried children, regardless of age
All green card applications require careful planning and completion of required forms, as well as supporting documentation. We assist in all aspects of these applications to help our clients obtain their green cards as quickly as possible.
There are other ways to obtain permanent residency, including through refugee or asylum status. We may be able to help you if you fear violence or persecution in your home country.You Don't Have to Navigate the System Alone
