Family Based Immigration

Comprehensive Family-Based Immigration Services to Suit Your Unique Needs

Our families mean the world to us. When it comes to uprooting your life to move to a new place, you likely want to bring your family with you for stability, security, and support. Family-based immigration remains one of the most common paths of immigration to the United States. The U.S. allows family members to immigrate either as an immediate relative of an already-established U.S. citizen or through the family preference system. However, complications or delays can arise during the family immigration process, and it’s common to feel overwhelmed or confused. The knowledgeable and compassionate legal team at Grossman Young & Hammond understands your concerns, and we’re committed to providing you with the information, tools, and support you need to move through the immigration process with greater ease and clarity.

Navigating the Visa Application Process for Immediate Relatives

The United States does not cap or limit the number of visas available each year for immediate relatives of U.S. citizens wishing to immigrate to the U.S. Immediate relatives include the spouses of U.S. citizens, unmarried minor children of U.S. citizens, and parents of U.S. citizens over the age of 21. In most cases, immediate relatives can obtain immigrant visas relatively quickly by submitting the appropriate forms and evidence showing their family relationship to the established U.S. citizen. Our attorneys are ready to guide you through this process, ensuring that you complete the required paperwork accurately and completely to minimize any potential complications or issues.

Coping With Quotas for Family Visas

Under the family preference system, a limited number of visas is available every year. Unfortunately, many hopeful immigrants may face lengthy delays before a family-based visa becomes available. The Department of State administers the provisions of the Immigration and Nationality Act (INA) regarding quotas and caps on immigrant visa issuances. Our seasoned immigration attorneys are here to help you prepare and submit all necessary forms, including those allowing you to apply for accompanying travel and work authorization benefits.
