Family is often one of the most important things in our lives. To be separated from your close family members due to immigration obstacles can be emotionally and financially difficult. Fortunately, immigration laws in the United States allow both U.S. citizens and permanent residents to sponsor qualified family members who want to obtain a visa to live in the U.S. for an extended period of time.
To learn more about whether your family members may be eligible for a family-based visa in or around Cicero, Illinois, please discuss your situation with the law firm of Lopez & Sanchez today.
There are two main types of family- based visas in the U.S. and our law firm can advise which type of visa is right for you of the following:
There are many ways that our immigration legal team can assist in making the family-based visa process easier and more efficient. The following are only a few examples of how we can help you and your family:
Application process – Even if you know which visa is appropriate, the application process is not a simple one. USCIS has many requirements and criteria for your family member to qualify for the visa. In addition, there will be a significant amount of information and documentation required. If any omissions or errors are inadvertently made, your family member’s visa may be delayed or even denied completely. We can help you through the entire application process and with any appeals if needed.
Inadmissibility – In some cases, prior conduct, health issues, or other concerns can cause USCIS to deem your family member inadmissible to the U.S. Our attorneys can determine whether your family member is eligible for a waiver of inadmissibility and can help obtain a waiver if possible.
Green cards – Once your family members have visas for a certain period of time, we can determine their eligibility to become permanent residents. We can help them apply for family-based green cards whenever possible.
At the law firm of Lopez & Sanchez, we have witnessed firsthand how difficult it can be for our clients to be separated from close family members for long periods of time. We believe that families who want to live together should be united in the U.S. and should be able to lawfully remain together and support one another. For this reason, we will always do everything in our power to help your family members obtain the visas they need for lawful immigration status.
