If you have close family members (spouse, parent, child or sibling) who are U.S. Citizens or Permanent Residents, you may be able to immigrate through their sponsorship.
While the goal of most applicants is permanent immigration, some non-immigrant (temporary) visa applications may be combined with an immigrant (permanent) visa application to hasten family reunification.
While many visa categories are offered, many have waiting lists and some are lengthy. We would be happy to evaluate your situation and advise you about the specific requirements of each category and any applicable waiting lists. We also will explore with you whether you may qualify for a visa under another category that could hasten the process.
To learn more, please call us for a free consultation.
