Permanent Residence Green Card for Family Relatives

Are you a U.S. citizen or a U.S. permanent resident who wishes to have an immediate relative come to the United States as a permanent resident with green card? Then you must understand the different categories of options available to them. Immigration Attorney Rupal Parikh Aristimuno can help you prepare and file a permanent residence (green card) petitions for your family members.

Spouses, children and parents of adult U.S. citizens qualify as immediate relatives. Visas are immediately available for immediate relatives. Priority dates are not a concern. There are, however, significant waiting periods and specific documentation requirements you need to know.

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

Avoid delays or denials of your family-based petition for a green card. Attorney Rupal will work with you every step of the way. She will ensure that the processing of your visa goes as smoothly and quickly as possible.
