It is possible for citizens of the United States or lawful permanent residents (those living in the country but not yet citizens) to apply for an immigrant visa through a petition. Those who are married to a U.S. citizen, their children, parents, and siblings, or those who are married to lawful permanent residents, may receive an immigrant visa, or green card.

We understand that immigration matters can be stressful and complicated, which is why we provide compassionate legal representation to help families achieve their immigration goals.
After obtaining a green card, relatives may eventually be eligible for citizenship through naturalization once they have met certain requirements to qualify for citizenship through immigration.
You will need to file a petition with the United States Citizenship and Immigration Services (USCIS) in order to obtain a green card for one of your eligible family members. The petition is known as a Form I-130 and requires your information, the beneficiary's information, as well as your relationship with the beneficiary. If you do not have U.S. citizenship or status as a U.S. citizen, you will be required to provide a written response.
Applicants must be lawful permanent residents and provide an affidavit stating that they are going to be financially responsible for the immigrants. In addition, your beneficiary will have to undergo health screening and background checks in order to be considered for permanent residency.
