Family and Employment Visa Lawyers in Los Angeles
Individuals may immigrate to the United States based on family relationships. These familial relationships are divided into categories that determine their priority for immigrating.
Spouses, children and parents of U.S. citizens are considered to be “Immediate Relatives” and may apply for permanent residence in the United States immediately.
Los Angeles Family Visa Attorney
There are five types of relationships considered to be “Preference Categories,” which means that, after submission of the family petition, these people must wait for a visa to become available. Even with a Los Angeles family visa lawyer, visa availability depends on the category of the relationship, the country of origin and the date of submission of the family petition. The five preference categories are:
- Unmarried son or daughter of a U.S. citizen
- Spouse and unmarried son or daughter of a legal permanent resident
- Unmarried son or daughter of a legal permanent resident
- Married son or daughter of a U.S. citizen
- Brother or sister of a U.S. citizen
We handle both consular processing (for relatives currently living outside the U.S.) and through adjustment of status (for relatives who are in the U.S.).
