Lawful Permanent Residency – San Antonio Immigration Lawyer

Lawful Permanent Residency Through a Family Member

One manner a person may obtain their lawful permanent resident card (green card) is through a family member. There are two general categories, individuals who obtain their immigrant visa through “immediate family” members and individuals who obtain their immigrant visas through “family sponsored preference” categories. “Immediate family” members are defined as parents, spouses, and minor children of United States citizens. “Family sponsored preference” categories include spouses and children of lawful permanent residents, married and unmarried adult children of United States citizens, and brothers and sisters of United States citizens.

Once your family member has applied for you and an immigrant visa is available, you may either obtain your lawful permanent residence in the United States through a process known as adjustment of status or through a consulate outside of the United States. It is extremely important that you do proceed with the correct process. Therefore, it is very important that you contact a qualified attorney who can review your case in an honest and thorough way so that you know the correct process to use.
