FAMILY-BASED PETITIONS FOR LAWFUL PERMANENT RESIDENCE "GREEN CARD"

If you want your spouse, parent, child, or sibling to move to or remain in the United States as a Lawful Permanent Resident, you will need to file
a family-based petition with the immigration service.  Although an immigration petition or application may appear simple on its face, incorrect or
insufficient information on a petition for your relative can cause unwanted delays.  In some situations, a mistake could even cause the
Immigration Service to deny your petition or application.

I can help you ensure your case is submitted correctly and with the proper documentation to support your petition/application.  

You or a family member may be able to become a lawful permanent resident of the United States (get a "Green Card") through sponsorship by
that family member if they are a United States Citizen or Lawful Permanent resident of the United States.

Some family members who are already in the United States may qualify for "Adjustment of Status" to permanent residence, completing their
applications and petitions while remaining in the United States without having to return to their home country.  

Those relatives who are outside the United States, or those who are not eligible to adjust status while remaining in the United States may still be
eligible for consular processing through a U.S. Embassy or consulate.
