A common route to relocating to the U.S. is through sponsorship by a U.S. citizen or permanent resident relative. While there are many starting points for filing a family-based immigration petition, all begin with a qualifying relative with ties to the U.S. We counsel clients on the complexities involved with sponsoring a spouse, fiancé, child, parent or sibling, including the associated financial requirements that each sponsor must meet and the annual numerical quotas for permanent resident applications.
We also have extensive experience counseling clients with relatives living abroad through the consular interview process prior to obtaining an immigrant visa, including the process associated with filing a family-based petition directly through a consular post as opposed to United States Customs and Immigration Services. As each consular post carries unique documentary and interview-related requirements, we constantly coordinate with each individual embassy and the National Visa Center (NVC) to ensure each client’s compliance with family-based immigration policy.
You can learn more about the visas for which we provide support on our Immigrant and Nonimmigrant Visas page.
