Family/Marriage-Based Immigration Attorney in New York City
Under the Immigration and Nationality Act, U.S. citizens and lawful permanent residents (green card holders) can bring certain family members or relatives to the United States. At Ramini Immigration Law Firm, I offer legal counsel backed by personal experience with the U.S. immigration process. Discover how I can guide you through the family sponsorship application and the process of obtaining green cards for your family member.
As an immigrant myself, I am passionate about reuniting people with their loved ones. If you’re an American citizen trying to obtain a visa (green card) for a family member, reach out to my office in New York City to learn more about your legal options. I'm also able to advise clients in Lancaster and Philadelphia, Pennsylvania, as well as Newark, New Jersey.
Types of Family-Based Visas
There are two options for family-based visas: immediate relative visas and family preference visas.
Immediate Relative Visas
If you are the spouse, parent, or unmarried child (less than 21 years old) of a U.S. citizen, you may be eligible for an immediate relative visa. It's important to note that lawful permanent residents (LPRs) of the U.S. cannot file immigration petitions for their spouses or unmarried children.
Family Preference Visas
These immigration visas are reserved for those with more distant family relationships to American citizens and LPRs. The U.S. limits the number of family preference visas granted each year, so be sure to consult an attorney if you think you or your relative may be eligible.
