Family Preference

Family-based Immigration Attorneys

Under immigration law, there are several classifications based on a preference system that outline when immigrant visas will become available. The immediate relatives of U.S. citizens, which include spouses, parents and unmarried children under the age of 21, do not have to wait for an immigrant visa number to become available, once the visa petition filed for them is approved.

Even a simple mistake on a visa application can significantly delay the process.

The immigration attorneys of Immigration Attorney Rupal Parikh Aristimuno can explain the procedures and requirements that are involved with different forms of family-based immigration.
