Family Members of U.S. Citizens

If you have immigrated from another country, obtained United States citizenship, and now wish to do the same for your family members, our firm is here to help. It is important to remember that the process may be different for them because of your permanent legal status in the country. Under special circumstances, United States citizens are able to petition for the permanent residency of their family members and initiate the process for their citizenship.

Family members eligible for such petitions include:

  • Spouses
  • Parents
  • Children
  • Siblings

Depending on the nature of the familial relationship, there are several types of family visas available to begin this process. Immediate relatives eligible for these visas include children who are under the age of 21, parents, and spouses.

The list for visas according to immediate relative is as follows:

  • FB-1 First Preference, for unmarried sons and daughters
  • FB-2 Third Preference, for married sons and daughters
  • FB-4 Fourth Preference, for siblings
  • K-1 Fiancée Visas, for fiancées of United States citizens
  • K-3 Visas, for spouses of United States citizens

Family Members of Permanent Residents (Green Card Holders)

Even if you have yet to receive citizenship and are still under the status of a non-citizen permanent resident, there are still options to help your family members gain legal documentation as well.

The list is different for the types of visas:

  • FB-2A Second Preference, for spouses and unmarried children
  • FB-2B Second Preference, for adult children
  • V Visas, for spouses or children

There many other types of visas you can apply for as a citizen or permanent resident for your family members. Find out more about the process by contacting our Houston family immigration lawyer today.
