Bringing a loved one to the U.S. through family immigration

When a person immigrates to the United States, they may want to obtain a green card so they can become a lawful permanent resident. When a person in Kentucky or elsewhere in the U.S. has a green card, they are able to reside and work in the country indefinitely. One type of permanent visa an immigrant may apply for is a family-based visa.

An immigrant can apply for a family-based visa based on his or her relationship with a resident or citizen of the U.S. First, parents, children and spouses of U.S. citizens can apply for a family-based visa. Adult children of U.S. citizens can apply for a family-based visa whether they are married or unmarried. Spouses or unmarried children of lawful permanent residents of the U.S. can apply for a family-based visa. Siblings of U.S. citizens can apply for a family-based visa. Finally, those being adopted by a U.S. citizen can apply for a family-based visa.

That being said, the process of procuring a visa can be confusing and overwhelming. No one wants to jeopardize their chance of becoming a lawful permanent resident by making a mistake in the visa application process. Therefore, those seeking a family-based visa may want to seek the help of an attorney.
