Applying for visas based on family immigration

At US Law Center, we see many cases in which a registered American citizen knows a relative or a loved one living outside of the border who may wish to come to the States. If you are a U.S. citizen and have a fiancé, spouse, children or siblings who you wish to bring to the U.S., a family immigrant visa may be an option for you to consider.

What is a family immigrant visa? Simply put, it is a visa that you can apply for which will allow you to bring a relative or loved one legally to America. There are two different types of visas that fall under the family immigration visa umbrella. These are IR visas and K visas. IR visas, short for immediate relative visas, are for legalized parents or other U.S. citizen relatives who wish to bring over a non-citizen child or relative. These visas may cover:

  • Spouses
  • Children of spouses
  • Married children
  • Siblings
  • Unmarried children under 21

K visas are considered the most common. If you are in a situation where you wish to bring your spouse or fiancé over, this is the visa that you may wish to look into. With a K visa, your spouse will be allowed to legally enter the country for being married or engaged to you. Different types of K visas allow for different types of citizenship situations.

No matter which option is chosen, you may find what you need to help a relative or spouse stay in the United States with the information on our family immigration visa applications page.
