Our Attorneys Guide Clients Through the Family-Based Immigration Process
Comprehensive counsel for people looking to immigrate loved ones
The family-based immigration attorneys at JMA Firm, PLLC explain the procedures and requirements that are involved with different forms of family-based immigration. In most cases, our clients are U.S. citizens or permanent residents who need to learn the best way to obtain U.S. entry or permanent residence for a relative (parent, spouse, fiancé or fiancée, son or daughter, brother, or sister). We can help you understand what to expect and what needs to be done. Our firm serves family, individual and business clients nationwide and around the world. Our versatility and breadth of experience in U.S. immigration law is a significant benefit to our clients.
Skilled advocates guide visa and status issues
Much of our work for family clients involves achieving entry, maintenance of status, adjustment of status, or change of status, and finding the quickest and most effective ways to meet immediate or ongoing immigration objectives. Sometimes the swiftest way to achieve immigration objectives will require additional work later. For example, when a noncitizen spouse enters the United States on a nonimmigrant K-3 visa, additional steps will be required. We provide our clients with clear explanations of all their options so that their choice is based on sound advice and clear judgment.
Examples of family immigration situations we handle include:
- Permanent residence (green card) for immediate relatives
- Entry and permanent residence for noncitizen spouses
- Preference categories for family-based immigration visas
- Nonimmigrant K-3 visas
- Fiancé or fiancée visas
- Adjustment of status
- Consular processing
- Family-based waivers of inadmissibility
- Naturalization and citizenship
We explain each process carefully: our explanation includes what to expect regarding: process time-length, priority dates, evidence and documentation requirements, visa bulletins, the interview process, and affidavits of support that must be completed for the noncitizen relative.
We provide straightforward and timely answers to questions and lay out the information needed to make informed choices.
