Consult a Family Immigration Lawyer Who Specializes in Marriage Visas
People from outside of the United States can secure a green card by marrying a United States citizen for love and with the intention of spending the rest of their lives together. The process is not as simple as tossing the bouquet and grabbing your green card, though. You will need to complete several steps, including filing a petition with the United States Citizenship and Immigration Services (USCIS), filing documents and forms with the National Visa Center (NVC), and appearing for an interview at a United States Embassy in a country outside of the United States.
A marriage immigration attorney can help you and your spouse navigate through this process. We oversee the completion of your paperwork, make sure you have all of the proper supporting documentation proving your eligibility for the green card, make sure it is filed on time, and prepare you for your interview.
If your foreign national spouse is in the United States, a marriage immigration attorney can assist you with the adjustment of status process. This process includes filing an immigrant visa petition, an adjustment of status application, work permit and travel document applications, and an affidavit of support, along with personal biographic information including, but not limited to birth certificates, marriage and divorce documents, and passports. Marriage green card applications will require an in-person examination, where both the United States citizen and their foreign national spouse must appear at their local USCIS Field Office to prove their marriage is ‘bona-fide’ i.e. for love and that the foreign national spouse is otherwise eligible for a green card. The expert immigration attorneys at Shane & Shane, P.A. not only prepare and file all of the forms and documents with the USCIS, but also prepare clients for and represent clients at these marital examinations on a regular basis.
Immigration for Brothers, Sisters or a Child
Being separated from your family is one of the most stressful parts of immigrating to a new country. Many families dream of the day that they can reunite with their loved ones. They wait patiently and work hard to secure their family member’s entry into the United States. These family members must go through the proper channels to obtain a green card, and it is vital to follow all of the legal steps in the right order and with the appropriate paperwork.
If you are a U.S. citizen, you can petition to have your children of any age, as well as their spouses and their children, join you in the United States. Lawful permanent residents i.e. green card holders, can file a petition for their unmarried children to join them in the United States.
Hoping to help your siblings enter the United States? Only U.S. citizens ages 21 and over can do this. Green card holders are not eligible to bring siblings over from their home country. This category has a very long wait.
To petition for a child or sibling to immigrate to the United States, you need to file the correct forms and supporting documentation proving the family relationship with the USCIS. The USCIS follows strict procedures for these cases, and you must understand factors such as who is considered a child or sibling under the United States immigration laws. An experienced immigration attorney at Shane & Shane, P.A. can advise you on all of the legal requirements, processes, and procedures.
