FAMILY RELATED MATTERS
One of the many benefits of being a US citizen is being able to petition for your foreign national relatives to come live in the United States. The time that it takes from petition to arrival depends on the proximity in relationship and also whether the petitioner is a US Citizen or a Legal Permanent Resident (Green Card Holder).
Our office advises clients and prepares petitions for the following family-based visa categories:
IMMEDIATE RELATIVES OF US CITIZENS
