What is the family immigration process like?
Each family petition varies. For example, for those individuals who entered the U.S. without inspection have a different immigration path than those who entered the U.S. with a visa. Also important is the family member petitioning for you. If a person is being sponsored by a U.S. citizen spouse, their case will be different that one married to a lawful permanent resident. All cases have multiple steps and involve a series of forms each of which requires certain evidence. The process is not simple and is time consuming. Using the services of an experienced immigration attorney who understands the many requirements and deadlines involved in this complicated process is critical. A timely well-prepared case often makes the difference between your family member being granted lawful residence or not.
