Family-Based Visa Petitions

US citizens can file immigrant visa petitions for qualifying relatives. Qualifying relatives of US citizens are:

– Spouses
– Parents
– Minor children
– Unmarried adult son(s) and/or daughter(s) (over the age of 21)
– Married son(s) and/or daughter(s)
– Siblings

The first three groups are classified as “immediate relatives” and do not require a visa to become available. The last three groups are preference relatives and are required to wait until a visa becomes available based on a priority date established when the visa petition was filed on their behalf. If you need assistance with filing your relative petition, contact us at www.tancinco.com/contact. If you already have a visa petition filed on your behalf and are waiting for a visa to become available, you can track visa availability at www.tancinco.com/visa bulletin

Legal permanent residents can file immigrant visa petitions for the following:

– Spouses
– Minor children
– Unmarried Adult son(s) and/or daughter(s) (over the age of 21)
