If you want to bring family over from Juarez to live in the United States, an El Paso immigration attorney can help you sponsor your family members. There are different categories of family-based immigration visas available, depending upon the relationship the immigrant has to someone in the United States. Both citizens and lawful permanent residents are able to sponsor family members to immigrate to this country. An El Paso immigration attorney like Cynthia R. Lopez will help you to determine if you are eligible and provide assistance in filing the right paperwork.
An Immigration Attorney can Explain Visas
Spouses of U.S. citizens have the highest priority when it comes to immigration. There are an unlimited number of family-based visas available for them. For other family members of lawful permanent residents, including spouses, children, parents, and siblings, the number of visas are limited. This means that while you can submit paperwork right away to get the sponsorship started, your family members may not immediately get an immigration visa. An immigration attorney can help you understand whether there is a visa available and can provide assistance in completing all required paperwork.
Immigration and Sponsorship
If you are a U.S. citizen or have become a lawful permanent resident, you can file paperwork to get the immigration process started for your family members from Juarez. To be eligible to sponsor your family, there are certain qualifications you need to meet. For example, you must be able to show you can financially support your family member who is immigrating to the United States. If you are sponsoring a spouse, you need to show your marriage is legitimate and not for the purposes of immigration. If you are a U.S. citizen or have become a lawful permanent resident and have a green card, you can file paperwork to get the immigration process started for your family members from Juarez.
