Family reunification is one of the guiding principles of our immigration system. If you are a U.S. citizen or lawful permanent resident, you may be able to sponsor certain family members to come to the U.S. on a temporary or permanent basis. However, proper legal analysis is critical for a successful family-based immigration process. At LAC, we strategize with you regarding the most appropriate temporary visa or green card options available and discuss and resolve potential roadblocks to the process.Categories for sponsorship of qualifying relatives by U.S. citizens and lawful permanent residents are as follows: Immediate Relatives of U.S. Citizens: Spouse, unmarried child under 21 years of age, and parent of U.S. citizens where the U.S. citizen is at least 21 years of age. Family First Preference (F1): Unmarried sons and daughters of U.S. citizens. Family Second Preference (F2): Spouse, minor children, and unmarried sons and daughters (age 21 and over) of Lawful Permanent Residents (LPRs). Family Third Preference (F3): Married sons and daughters of U.S. citizens. Family Fourth Preference (F4): Brothers and sisters of U.S. citizens where the U.S. citizen is at least 21 years of age.
While the majority of employment-based immigration benefits require an employer for sponsorship, there are a few employment-based options available for self-sponsorship. If you are an individual whose work is in the national interest of the U.S. or you possess extraordinary ability in the sciences, arts, education, business or athletics, you may qualify for lawful permanent residence status without an employer sponsor. At LAC we do a thorough analysis of your background, accomplishments, and the impact of your work in the field to determine the feasibility of a self-sponsored petition and will work with you to develop the strongest submission possible.
