U.S. citizens have the ability to sponsor family members to immigrate to the United States. As a U.S. citizen, you may be eligible to sponsor your children, fiancée or spouse, children, parents, or siblings for immigration. Similarly, lawful permanent residents may be eligible to sponsor spouses and children to immigrate to the United States.
U.S. citizens who marry foreign nationals present in the United States on a nonimmigrant visa may be eligible to submit what is known as a “one-step” application for residency, allowing the non-U.S. citizen the ability to process his/her immigrant petition from within the U.S.
It is important to consult with an experienced immigration attorney to ensure you are on the right track with your immigration petition. Call (651) 756-8781 or email to schedule your free consultation.
