Are you looking to get help with a green card application? Are you overwhelmed by all the different paperwork found online or are you confused about whether or not you qualify under your family member?
One of the most common questions presented to an immigration lawyer is whether you are able to obtain a green card through a family connection. There are certain stipulations that must be met through USCIS in order to activate this. You could be able to apply as any of the following categories, provided that you meet specific requirements.
US Citizen’s Immediate Relative
If you are the spouse of a US citizen, an unmarried child under the age of 21, or a US citizen and a parent of a US citizen who is at least 21 years old, you could be eligible for a green card.
Widower of US Citizen
A widower or widow of a US citizen who was married to the US citizen’s spouse at the time the spouse passed away could be eligible for a green card.
Other Relative of a US Citizen
If you are the married son or daughter of a US citizen, the unmarried daughter or son of a US citizen, aged 21 and above, a sister or brother of a US citizen who is at least 21, or the family member of a lawful permanent resident, you could be able to use these classification categories to initiate your green card application.
Furthermore, if you were the fiancé of a US citizen or the fiancé’s child, you could be eligible to obtain a green card if you are the person admitted to the US as the child of a fiancé of a US citizen through the K-2 non-immigrant program or a person admitted to the US as a fiancé of a US citizen through the K-1 non-immigrant program. Scheduling a consultation with an experienced and knowledgeable immigration attorney is strongly recommended.
