Family Immigration

Learn how you can get your family into the United States and apply for necessary waivers to obtain permanent residency. 

 Introduction

US immigration laws allow noncitizens who are family members of US citizens or lawful permanent residents, to apply to become lawful permanent residents based on their specific family relationship. This process can be lengthy and complicated based on the specific facts of your case. At DeMine Immigration, our attorneys are versed in all types of family petitions and can guide you and your family through the process.

Types of Family Petitions

I-130 PETITION/ SPOUSAL PETITION

The I-130 Petition enables citizens or lawful permanent residents of the United States to establish the relationship to certain alien relatives who wish to immigrate to the United States.

US CONSULATE REPRESENTATION

We can represent your case or petition at any US Consulate throughout the World.

ADJUSTMENT OF STATUS

An adjustment of status (AOS) enables an eligible applicant to become a lawful permanent resident of the United States without having to go abroad and apply for an immigrant visa.

WAIVERS

Waivers allow certain individuals who are family members of U.S. citizens and lawful permanent residents (LPRs), and who are statutorily eligible for immigrant visas, to more easily navigate the immigration process.

FIANCÉ VISA

When a United States citizen is engaged to a non-citizen, they may apply for a K-1 visa, also known as a fiancé visa, for their entry into the United States. The purpose of a fiancé visa is to become married and for the new spouse to reside within the country. If your fiancé is granted a K-1 visa, you will need to get married within 90 days of their entry into the United States.

REMOVAL OF CONDITIONS

If you are a foreign national who has received your permanent resident status before your two-year wedding anniversary, you will be issued a two-year conditional green card. You will have 90 days to file the removal of conditions with evidence that your marriage is legitimate. If the marriage, through which you received your residency, has ended, you will need to file a waiver of the joint filing to remove the conditions on your residency.

CUBAN ADJUSTMENT STATUS

The Cuban Adjustment Act of 1966 allows Cuban natives or citizens living in the United States who meet certain eligibility requirements to apply to become lawful permanent residents. The two most important requirements of Cuban Adjustment are, that the applicant was inspected and admitted or paroled and has been physically present in the United States for at least one year at the time of filing for residency.

NATURALIZATION

To become a citizen of the United States, there are a number of different requirements that an applicant must meet. In addition to being at least 18 years of age, you must meet certain criteria to qualify.
