Joliet Family Based Immigration Attorneys On Your Side

If you are a U.S. citizen or a legal permanent resident, it can be difficult to have close family members living in another country. However, in order for non-citizens or permanent residents to live and work in the United States for an extended period of time, they must obtain the proper visas from the U.S. Citizenship and Immigration Services (USCIS). In many situations, immigration laws allow you to sponsor your family members and file a petition with USCIS for them to be granted a visa.

The process of obtaining a family-based visa is not always easy, however, and complications can arise. You should know that the Joliet immigration attorneys of Lopez & Sanchez are here to help. Call today to learn more about our family-based immigration services.

What Options Do You Have For Your Family Members?

There are different visas for which your family members may apply depending on their relation to you and your own immigration status. For example, consider the following: 

Your Status Relation Type of Visa
Citizen Spouse Immediate Relative Visa
Citizen Children under 21 and Unmarried or Adopted Orphans Immediate Relative Visa
Citizen Parents Immediate Relative Visa
Citizen Married Children and Their Families Family Preference Visa
Citizen Siblings and Their Families Family Preference Visa
Legal Permanent Resident Spouse Family Preference Visa
Legal Permanent Resident Children under 21 and Unmarried Family Preference Visa

If you apply for the wrong type of visa, your application can be denied and you can set the process back by a significant amount of time. Our legal team can evaluate your situation and determine which type of visa is right for each family member in question.

Do You Need an Immigration Attorney?

While it is never required to have legal representation while applying for a visa or sponsoring a family member, obtaining the proper visa can happen more efficiently with the help of a skilled immigration attorney.

The application process has many steps and requirements. If an error is made or the necessary information or documents are not all provided, you can experience substantial delays and even a denial of the visa application. The guidance of an attorney can help the process go more smoothly and with less stress on your and your family members.

In the event that your family member is declared inadmissible to the U.S. due to their history, it is critical to speak to an attorney as soon as possible. Our lawyers know how to seek a waiver of inadmissibility for your family member if possible.
