Northern New Jersey Family Green Card Lawyer
Under certain circumstances, a U.S. resident can sponsor a family member in obtaining a visa to live and work permanently in the United States. A permanent lawful resident of the U.S. may petition to sponsor an unmarried minor child for U.S. citizenship if the child:
- Was born to married parents or unmarried parents, US citizen(s); if the unmarried parent is the father, a relationship of support must be established
- Is a stepchild and if the relationship between parent and stepparent began before the child turned 18
- Is adopted and the adoption took place before the child was 16 and the child has been in the adoptive parents’ custody for at least two years or is under 18 and the sibling of another adopted child adopted at the same time or after his or her sibling; or if the child is an orphan who has been adopted abroad by a U.S. citizen or is coming to the U.S. to be adopted by a U.S. citizen
Only a U.S. citizen over the age of 21 may petition to sponsor his or her parents to become a U.S. resident.
The process of obtaining a parent-child visa or green card requires that you file a petition, that it is approved by the United States Immigration and Citizenship Services (USICS) and that the State Department assign an immigrant visa number. Although this may seem straightforward, the process can become complicated and confusing very quickly. With your family’s togetherness at stake, it is very important that you seek the guidance of an experienced and knowledgeable family immigration attorney whom you can trust.
