Immigration Visas For Family Members
At U.S. Law Center, our attorneys practice exclusively in the area of immigration law, providing families and individuals throughout Southern California with legal services marked by commitment and experience.
When assisting clients with family immigration, our lawyers play an active part in the reunification of husband and wife, fiancé and fiancée, parent and child, brother and sister — relatives dispersed across the globe by economic and political circumstances. If you are a lawful permanent resident or a U.S. citizen and would like to sponsor a relative for family-based immigration, please contact our Riverside County office to arrange a free consultation.
K Visas, Immediate Relative (IR) Visas
The most common category of family immigration is the fiancé or marriage K visa. A K-1 visa provides for permanent immigration of the spouse of a U.S. citizen or legal permanent resident. A K-3 visa allows a person engaged to a U.S. citizen or legal resident to enter the United States in the months before marriage. An immediate relative (IR) visa allows the child of a U.S. citizen or permanent resident to enter the United States.
Limited Family-Based Immigration Preferences
- First preference: Unmarried children (under 21) of U.S. citizens
- Second preference: Spouses of lawful permanent residents, the spouses’ children and unmarried children of legal permanent residents
- Third preference: Married children of U.S. citizens
- Fourth preference: Siblings of adult U.S. citizens
Our attorneys will handle all phases of processing for a K visa or preference-based visa. If you have as your long-term goal achieving U.S. citizenship, talk to our attorneys about an appropriate strategy.
Nonimmigrant work visas, student visas and other special status categories allow the spouse and children of a visa holder to enter the United States under dependent status.
