A U.S citizen or Green Card holder can sponsor their eligible family members for a family based Green Card.  The process starts with a family petition for an immigrant visa on behalf of an eligible family member.  U.S. citizens can request an immigrant visa for a spouse, children, parents, and siblings. A Green Card holder can petition their spouse and any unmarried children.

Visas are generally issued according to annual quotas, the beneficiary’s home country and the particular family relationship.  If you are a U.S. citizen, your immediate family members (spouses and children under 21 years of age) can be issued an immigrant visa as soon as the Family Petition (Form I-130) process is approved.  This means that your spouse and children who are under 21 years of age do not have to wait for the backlogs.

An immigration attorney can help you unite with your family member in the United States.
