As Cleveland immigration lawyers, we understand that the laws concerning immigration can be incredibly complex. We can help decipher them for you.

Eligibility Requirements for Family-Based Visas

The first step begins when a family member who is currently a U.S. Permanent Resident (in possession of a Green Card) or a citizen petitions to bring family members to the U.S.

These are the types of family-based visa petitions available to you:

  • Immediate Relative Immigrant Visas
    • IR-1 Visa for spouses
    • IR-2 Visas for unmarried children under age 21
    • IR-3 Visas for children adopted outside the U.S.
    • IR-4 Visas for immigrant children who will be adopted
    • IR-5 Visas for parents of U.S. citizens or permanent residents
  • Family Preference Immigrant Visas
    • First preference: Unmarried children of U.S. citizens or permanent residents
    • Second preference: Spouses, minor children, and children over age 21 of U.S. citizens or permanent residents
    • Third preference: Married children of U.S. citizens or permanent residents
    • Fourth preference: Brothers or sisters, as well as their minor children, of U.S. citizens or permanent residents
