Our Family Immigration Services

The Law Office of Jason A. Dennis proudly provides families with a broad range of immigration services here in New York City. Just some of the family immigration matters we proudly handle on behalf of our clients include:

Family Members That You Can Sponsor for Immigration

The eligibility for family-sponsored immigrants is divided into four preferences and a separate group known as “immediate relatives.”

Immediate relatives, such as spouses and minor children of United States citizens and parents of adult United States citizens, are the most favored of all family-based immigrants. Unlike the preference groups, immediate relatives aren’t subject to numerical limits. Thus, petitions for immediate relatives are processed more quickly than other family-based categories.

Relatives who aren’t “immediate relatives” of U.S. citizens can still immigrate to the U.S. if they fall into any of the following family-based preferences:

  • Unmarried, adult daughters and sons of United States citizens,
  • Spouses of law-abiding permanent residents, their unmarried adult daughters and sons, and unmarried children (under the age of 21) of permanent residents,
  • Married daughters and sons of U.S. citizens

Limitations of Family-Based Preference

The family-based preferences are subject to numerical limitations. This means that an individual who falls into one of the family-based preference categories might still have to wait for many years to get their legal permanent resident status. Thus, simply filing or the approval of a Petition within one of the family-based preference categories doesn’t permit one to work and live legally in the U.S.

What Are the Different Types of Family-Based Visas?

A family-based immigrant visa is for persons who are related to U.S. citizens or lawful permanent residents. They must be an immediate family member, including a spouse or parent, or a minor child who is under the age of 21 of a U.S. citizen.

The family visas for immediate relatives include:

  • K-3 Visa,
  • K-1 fiancé visa, and
  • V Visa.

Other family-based visas include:

  • F1 visa for unmarried daughters and sons of U.S. citizens
  • F2 visa for spouses and minor children, and unmarried daughters and sons of lawful permanent residents
  • F3 visa for married sons and daughters of citizens
  • F4 visa for sisters and brothers of adult United States citizens

If you wish to bring a loved one to the US, our experienced family-based immigration attorneys in NYC can guide you through what to expect during the family-based immigration legal process and what evidence you need to be prepared. Our legal team represents individuals and families throughout NYC and around the world, and we would be happy to help you, too.

How Can a Family Immigration Lawyer Help?

A lot of what our defense team does for our family-based immigration clients involves maintenance of status, adjustment of status, achieving entry, and finding the most effective ways to meet their immediate or ongoing immigration objectives. Sometimes the best way to achieve your American dream may require extra work later on; for instance, when a non-citizen spouse enters the US on a nonimmigrant K-3 visa.

Eventually, it’s up to you and your loved one to decide how you’d like to proceed, but our experienced immigration lawyers in New York will always arm you with all the information you need to know concerning the legal options available to you, so you can make an educated decision.

We are dedicated to helping United States citizens and permanent residents bring their relatives to this country.

We handle the following family immigration cases:

  • Family-based waivers of inadmissibility
  • Removal defense
  • Adjustment of status
  • Citizenship application and naturalization
  • Fiancé or fiancée visas
  • Nonimmigrant K-3 visas
  • Consular processing
  • Permanent residence or green card application for the closest relatives
  • Preferences categories for family-based immigration visas
  • Entry and permanent residence for non-citizen spouses

Each of these instances requires a different approach and course of legal action. Thus, we take the time to explain each legal process carefully so you know what to expect in the future: priority dates, length of time, evidence and documentation requirements, interview process, visa bulletins, and the affidavits of support that non-citizen relatives must fill.

You can rely on our family immigration attorneys in New York City to offer timely and straightforward answers to your questions while giving you the information you need to make educated decisions about your family.
