Cicero Family Based Immigration Attorneys

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.

Family-Based Visas in the U.S.

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:

  • Family preference visas – These are available for the spouses and young, unmarried children of permanent residents, as well as for the siblings and married children of U.S. citizens. There are a limited number of family preference visas issued each year, however.
  • Immediate relative visas – U.S. citizens can sponsor their spouses, young unmarried children, orphans they have adopted, and parents for immediate relative visas. These have no annual limitation.

How An Immigration Attorney Can Help

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.
