Seeking an immigrant visa for a family member?

This process involves sponsoring your spouse or loved one to come to the United States. You will be required to prove that you have enough income and assets to support them. The USCIS must first approve your immigrant visa petition, and then you must prove that you have the necessary income to support your loved one. If both of these processes are successful then your loved one may be able to apply for an immigrant visa and continue the process to becoming a lawful permanent resident.

There are essentially two categories for family-based immigration, limited and unlimited. Unlimited immigration is available to the immediate family of a U.S. Citizen. This includes the spouse, and unmarried or widowed children, under 21, of a U.S. Citizen. Other family members are divided by preference, and there are a limited number of immigrant visas assigned to these individuals on a yearly basis.
