What Is Family-Based Immigration?

Family-based immigration processes enable U.S. citizens and lawful permanent residents to bring their family members to the United States. The U.S. citizen or lawful permanent resident sponsors their family member for a green card or visa or through adjustment of status. Another option to consider is a marriage green card. Attorney Maniatis will review your case and help you determine the best path forward.

The application process can be long and complex, starting with filing a Form I-130 petition. At Maniatis Law, attorney Maniatis will help you with every step of the process.
