Family Based Immigration Petitions
Under the provisions of the United States immigration laws, two groups of family visa categories are provided for immediate family members and family preference categories.
Immediate family member visas arise from a close family relationship with a United States citizen. These are an immediate relative (for example – mother, father, son, daughter, sister, etc). Such visas consists of the following types:
IR-1: Spouse of a U.S. Citizen
IR-2: Unmarried Child Under 21 Years of Age of a U.S. Citizen
IR-3: Orphan adopted abroad by a U.S. Citizen
IR-4: Orphan adopted in the U.S. by a U.S. citizen
IR-5: Parent of a U.S. Citizen who is at least 21 years old
The family preference categories divide into preference systems and also priority dates:
1. First Preference
Under the first preference category, you will qualify for U.S residency if you are an unmarried son or daughter of a U.S. citizen.
2. Second Preference
Under the second preference category, you will qualify for U.S residency if you are a spouse or child under the age of 21 of a U.S. permanent resident, or an unmarried son or daughter also over the age of 21 of a U.S. permanent resident.
3. Third Preference
Under the third preference category, you will qualify for U.S residency if you are a married son or daughter of a U.S. citizen.
4. Fourth Preference
Under the fourth preference category, you will also qualify for U.S residency if you are a brother or sister of an adult U.S citizen.
In order to obtain a family based visa, you will have to file a Petition for Alien Relative, Form I-130 with the Department of Homeland Security, U.S. Citizenship and Immigration Services (USCIS). Certain requirements such as age and residency provisions must exist prior to petition approval. Contact our attorneys for more information.
