Handling Family-Based Green Cards & Related Matters

The United States has long been a destination for immigrants seeking a better life. Whether it is for work, education, or family, there are multiple avenues for those who wish to live and work in the United States.

A green card, or Lawful Permanent Resident (LPR) status, allows foreigners to live and work permanently in the U.S., travel freely, and eventually pursue U.S. citizenship. Various routes, like family-based immigration through marriage or relatives, can lead to obtaining a green card. Typically, U.S. citizens or permanent residents file family-based immigration petitions. Verma Law Firm, with our skilled San Francisco family immigration attorney, offers crucial guidance and representation to navigate the intricate application process.

Types of Family Visas

There are several different types of family-based immigration visas, and they are divided into two main categories: immediate relatives and family preference. Immediate relatives include spouses, children, and parents of U.S. citizens. Family preference includes other relatives of U.S. citizens and permanent residents.

The different types of family-based immigration visas include:

  • Family-Based Visa for Immediate Relatives: This visa includes immediate relatives of U.S. citizens, such as spouses, children, and parents. This visa is typically processed faster than family preference visas.
  • Family-Based Visa for Family Preference: This visa includes other relatives of U.S. citizens and permanent residents. This is typically processed slower than immediate relatives.
  • Visa for Unmarried Sons and Daughters of U.S. Citizens: This visa includes unmarried sons and daughters of U.S. citizens who are at least 21 years of age. They must have a U.S. citizen parent who has been a resident in the United States for at least 5 years before the child's birth. This visa is not available to children of U.S. citizens who were born in Canada.
  • Visa for Married Sons and Daughters of U.S. Citizens: This visa includes married sons and daughters of U.S. citizens who are at least 21 years of age. They must have a U.S. citizen parent who has been a resident in the United States for at least 5 years before the child's marriage. This visa is not available to children of U.S. citizens who were born in Canada.
  • K1 Fiancée Visa: This visa includes fiancés of U.S. citizens. The U.S. citizen petitioner and the fiancée must have met in person at least once in the previous 2 years. They must also have a relationship that is ongoing, in good faith, and that is intended to continue indefinitely. The fiancée must be willing to marry the petitioner within 90 days of arrival in the United States.
  • K2 Visa for Children of K1 Visa Holders: This visa includes the children of K1 visa holders who are under the age of 21. The K1 visa holder must have a U.S. citizen spouse. The child and the U.S. citizen spouse must have met in person at least once in the previous 2 years. The child must be the legitimate child of the U.S. citizen spouse and the K1 visa holder.
