Who Qualifies for Family-Based Immigration?

These visas are meant to help those who are not earning a primary income for the family.

If you are a U.S. citizen over the age of 21, you can sponsor the following immediate relatives:

  • Your spouse
  • Your unmarried children under the age of 21
  • Your parents
  • An orphan you adopted in a foreign country
  • A foreign-born orphan to be adopted in the U.S.

You can also sponsor the following family members, but they will not have the same preference in obtaining a visa as immediate family members listed above:

  • Unmarried sons and daughters aged 21 and above
  • Married sons and daughters
  • Siblings aged 21 and above

Lawful permanent residents (green card holders) may sponsor:

  • Spouses
  • Unmarried children under the age of 21
  • Unmarried children 21 and older

U.S. citizens can also sponsor a foreign-born fiancé(e) as well as his or her child through a K-1 visa to allow for your marriage in this country within 90 days. This visa does not grant lawful permanent residency, and you must fulfill all requirements.

Family & Marriage Visa FAQ

Q1: How long does the family immigration process take?

A: The duration of the family immigration process varies based on factors such as the type of relationship, the sponsoring family member's status, and the processing times of government agencies. Generally, it can take several months to several years, and it's advisable to check the latest processing times with immigration authorities.

Q2: What is the difference between a family-sponsored visa and a family-based green card?

A: A family-sponsored visa is often the initial step in the immigration process, allowing family members to enter the country. A family-based green card, on the other hand, grants permanent residency, allowing the sponsored family member to live and work in the U.S. permanently.

Q3: Can I appeal if my family immigration application is denied?

A: Yes, if your family immigration application is denied, you typically have the right to appeal the decision. The appeals process involves presenting additional evidence or addressing issues raised during the initial application. Consulting with an immigration attorney is recommended for guidance on the appeals process.

Q4: Can I work in the U.S. while waiting for family immigration approval?

A: The ability to work in the U.S. while waiting for family immigration approval depends on the type of visa or green card you hold. Some categories allow for employment authorization, while others may have restrictions. It's important to understand the specific terms and conditions of your immigration status.

Q5: Can I include stepchildren or adopted children in family immigration petitions?

A: Yes, stepchildren and adopted children can often be included in family immigration petitions. The specific eligibility criteria may vary, and it's advisable to consult with an immigration attorney to ensure proper documentation and adherence to immigration regulations.

Q6: What is the Affidavit of Support, and do I need it for family immigration?

A: The Affidavit of Support is a legal document in which a sponsoring family member commits to financially supporting the immigrant relative. It is often required as part of the family immigration process to demonstrate that the sponsored family member will not become a public charge. The sponsoring family member must meet specific income requirements.

Q7: Can I travel outside the U.S. while waiting for family immigration approval?

A: While awaiting family immigration approval, travel outside the U.S. may have implications on the application process. It's essential to understand the rules and potential consequences, such as abandonment of the application. Consult with immigration authorities or an attorney before planning international travel.
