For those with a close family member who is a U.S. citizen, or a permanent resident, the chances of immigrating are very favorable. There are two basic types of relatives that can provide benefits to obtaining permanent resident status: immediate relatives (spouse and minor, unmarried children and parents) and "preference" relatives (unmarried sons and daughters of green card holders and U.S. citizens, married sons and daughters of citizens, and brothers and sisters of U.S. citizens).  The family immigration process generally starts with a petition filed by the US citizen or permanent resident relative with the USCIS, and culminates with the adjustment of status or immigration of the beneficiary relative.  

Our services: We will advise you and your family on eligibility requirements, prepare the family-based petition documentation, file and monitor the case, and provide oversight and assistance throughout the process.  We will help prepare for the adjustment of status interview or consular interview.  In the case of the state-side adjustment of status interview, we will attend the interview with you, providing you counsel and representation at this sometimes stressful event.
