Fairfax Family Immigration Attorneys
Dedicated Legal Service for Clients in Virginia & Nationwide
The family immigration lawyers at Murray Osorio PLLC proudly represent hard-working immigrants who are striving for their American Dream. Our immigration law firm is particularly focused on assisting individuals and their families who want to establish themselves and work in the United States.
What Is Family-Based Immigration?
Family petitions allow certain relatives to obtain legal permanent residence. These include immediate relatives, which are the parents, spouses, and children under twenty-one (21) of U.S. citizens, as well as preference categories, which are the adult children, married children, or siblings of U.S. citizens, and the spouses and children of Legal Permanent Residents.
In certain circumstances, petitions can be made with the foreign national within the United States through a process called Adjustment of Status. Alternatively, for those unable to process in the United States or for those abroad, they can immigrate to the United States through a process called Consular Processing.
U.S. citizens may also apply for a fiancé through a K-1 visa. This requires a combination of both consular processing and adjustment of status. Timing is key for this process, as the couple must marry within 90 days of entering the country.
Considerations During the Family Immigration Process
If you are seeking family-based immigration, there are several consideration to make at this time:
- The sponsor will need to be at least 18 years old, living in the United States, and a United States citizen
- All applicants will need to consent to a compulsory medical examination
- There are limits on visas under the family-preference category, but there is no limit on those for spouses, children, or parents of a sponsor
