Family Based Immigration

For many, coming to the United States is a dream come true. Bringing loved ones to the U.S. after you have established legal residency or citizenship completes that dream.

Our firm specializes in family based petitions, marriage based adjustment of status and the necessary waivers to overcome excludability issues which may arise during the course of the application process. We are also experts in securing temporary fiancé (K) and spouse living abroad (V) visas to allow couples to be together in the U.S. while the green card case is pending. Our attorneys at Garces Grabler & Lebrocq guide families through each step of the process, and have expertise in the many issues which may arise, including issues with meeting the financial obligations of an Affidavit of Support.

The Immigration and Nationality Act allows U.S. citizens or lawful permanent residents to sponsor certain family members to migrate to the United States.

Under the Immigration and Nationality Act there are two basic categories of relatives that permit immigration to the United States: immediate relatives and preference immigrants.

Immediate relatives consist of:

  • Spouses of United States citizens
  • Minor and unmarried children of United States citizens, (under twenty one years of age)
  • Parents of United States citizens (if the petitioner is at least twenty one years of age), and
  • Spouses of deceased United States citizens.

Preference immigrants consist of the following:

First Preference: Unmarried sons and daughters of United States citizens over the age of twenty-one years.

Second Preference: Spouses or children of permanent residents; or Unmarried sons or daughters of permanent residents

Third Preference: Married sons and daughters of citizens of the United States;

Fourth Preference: Brothers or sisters of United States Citizens, if such citizens are at least twenty-one years of age.

Alien Visas

Aliens other than immediate relatives fall into one of the four limited family based preference categories. A visa will not be immediately available as there is a numerical limit on the number of visas issued each year.

Our attorneys at Garces Grabler & Lebrocq will prepare your initial petition, track the progress of your priority date until a visa is available and then process the necessary petition(s) for your relative to became a permanent resident.

Jonathan A Kessous did an outstanding job in handling my case. He was able to get the most serious charge and several other charges against me dropped and my fine greatly reduced. I was most impressed with his professionalism.competence and the timely manner in which he responded to all my questions and concerns. This demonstrated to me that I was a priority and not just a client!
