There is nothing more painful than being separated from your family, especially when there are great distances and international borders between you and your loved ones.
Fortunately, U.S. immigration law provides a way to unite families in the United States. If you are a U.S. citizen or a legal U.S. resident, it is possible to petition the government to allow certain family members such as a spouse, siblings, parents and children to join you in the United States.
Legal Guidance For Your Family Visa Needs
The specific document you will petition for depends on your citizenship status and the nature of the relationship between you and the family member for whom you are filing a petition. For instance, a spouse might apply for a green card (permanent residence) or a K-3/K-4 nonimmigrant visa. For fiancé(e)s residing outside the United States, there exists a special fiancé(e) visa.
If your family member is interested in staying in the U.S. permanently, it is also possible to begin the process of becoming a U.S. citizen through naturalization.
