Relationships with family members are perhaps the most important aspects of lives for many people in the United States, so it is sensible that such people will want to make sure their loved ones can be in the same country as themselves. United States citizens and lawful permanent residents or green card holders may seek to have their family members who are currently living overseas come to live and work in this country, and Aurora family immigration lawyers can help make this dream become a reality.
Certain United States citizens and lawful permanent residents may seek to apply for family members who are already here and may not yet have legal status. Under federal immigration law, a citizen or green card holder can petition to have certain relatives immigrate to the country and obtain a green card, and such relatives could later become eligible to obtain citizenship through naturalization when they meet certain requirements.
Family members that will be eligible for family-based immigration will depend on whether the petitioner or sponsor is a United States citizen or a lawful permanent resident. Family members that may be eligible based on a person’s status include:
People who are in the United States under certain other categories could also be able to file petitions for spouses and unmarried children. Refugees and asylees, for example, can petition for their spouses and children, and U-visa applicants can also submit applications for spouses and children before or after U-visa approval.
