Options For Immigrants Related To U.S. Citizens
U.S. citizens are able to petition for family members, including spouses, parents, children and siblings, to become permanent residents and start on the path to citizenship. There are numerous visa types for family members of U.S. citizens; our firm advises clients about the category that fits their circumstances:
- Immediate Relatives — Children (under 21), parents and spouses of U.S. citizens
- FB-1 First Preference — Unmarried sons and daughters of U.S. citizens
- FB-2 Third Preference — Married sons and daughters of U.S. citizens
- FB-4 Fourth Preference — Brothers and sisters of U.S. citizens
- K-1 and K-3 Fiancé(e) Visas — 90-day nonimmigrant visas for fiancé(e)s of U.S. citizens
- K-3 Visas — For spouses of U.S. citizens whose petition for permanent residency has not been approved and forwarded to the U.S. consulate in the spouse’s home country
Options For Families Of Permanent Residents
Permanent residents (holders of green cards) are able to petition for permanent residency for family members under the following visa programs:
- FB-2A Second Preference — Spouses and unmarried children of permanent residents
- FB-2B Second Preference — Adult sons and daughters of permanent residents.
- V Visas — Spouses or children or lawful permanent residents, if the permanent resident has filed a petition for the spouse or child before December 21, 2000, and the petition is still pending
Citizens and permanent residents of the U.S. can seek other visa types for their family members. Our attorneys will help clients review their options to determine whether these visa programs might be effective.
In addition to helping family members apply for visas for their relatives, the lawyers at Kurzban Kurzban Tetzeli and Pratt P.A. particularly enjoy helping people with international adoptions. This aspect of the practice is particularly rewarding, as it brings children in need of loving families in the U.S.
