The most straightforward path for family immigration is available to the spouses of American citizens and lawful permanent residents. If you are married to a U.S. citizen, you have a basic right to immigrate to the United States. There is no cap on how many spousal visas can be issued each year. Still, you need to make sure that your application is in pristine condition.
A K-1 visa can be issued to the fiancé of an American. To qualify for this type of visa, you and your partner must be in a good faith romantic relationship and you must intend to get married in the near future. You will be required to prove the legitimacy of your relationship to American immigration officials.
K-3 and K-4 visas are temporary visas that help the spouses and unmarried children of Americans get through the immigration system more quickly. Once in the United States, those holding a K-3 or K-4 visa should apply for an adjustment of status to become a lawful permanent resident.
Family Preference Immigration
Each year, the United States government approves a limited number of visas for family preference applicants. These are for more distant family members of Americans. At Joseph & Hall P.C., our Laramie immigration lawyers have extensive experience handling applications through the family preference system. We can help your loved one put together the strongest possible application for a green card.
If you or your family member have obtained a green card through family immigration, U.S. citizenship may eventually be within reach. In the majority of cases, family-based immigration options put the applicant on a path to becoming an American citizen. Of course, this does not happen immediately. An applicant must hold a green card for several years before he or she can apply for U.S. citizenship. If you are considering seeking citizenship through a family member, you should consult with a Laramie naturalization lawyer.
At Joseph & Hall P.C., our compassionate Laramie family immigration attorneys have a proven track record of success handling a wide range of immigration law issues. If you or your loved one needs family immigration help, please contact our law firm today for a confidential consultation.
