Fort Myer Immigration Attorney Handling Parent, Children & Sibling Petitions
Comprehensive Family-Based Immigration Services
The process through which a U.S. citizen or lawful permanent resident (LPR) petitions for certain non-citizen family members can be a long and complicated process with many potential pitfalls. U.S. citizens may petition for their spouse, children, parents, and siblings, while LPRs may petition for their spouse and unmarried children.
If you are a citizen or LPR hoping to petition on behalf of a loved one, work with Hurtado Immigration Law Firm. We have decades of experience representing families in complicated immigration matters. Our Fort Myers family immigration attorney is passionate about reuniting loved ones and seeing families strengthen bonds in the U.S.
The spouse, parents, and minor children of U.S. citizens are considered “immediate relatives” and have visas immediately available.
Relatives who are not “immediate relatives” must wait for a visa to become available for them and are assigned a “priority date.” When the priority date becomes current, the non-citizen relative’s visa will become available. Visa availability is determined by the U.S. State Department and announced through its visa bulletin. You can check the current visa bulletin here.
When the priority date on your I-130 receipt notice is the same or earlier than the date in your visa category, you may be eligible to apply for LPR status. Please make an appointment with our law office before filing any application for LPR status.
