Bringing Families Together Through Immigration Law Guidance
The goal of each family-based immigration petition is to keep families together or to reunite separated family members. The family-based immigration process is anything but simple, however, and mistakes are extremely costly.
The Law Offices of Elsa Ayoub, P.L.L.C., in New York, understands the intricacies and requirements of this immigration process and knows how to prevent mistakes that would delay family members from reuniting in the United States. We understand the importance of the process for everyone that we represent, and therefore we make certain petitions are presented correctly and that all information is accurate.
Types of Family-Based Petitions
It is important to handle the family-based immigration process correctly to avoid delays. The correct process to undertake is based upon the applicant’s individual circumstances, as well as their prior immigration history.
Elsa Ayoub handles the following family-based petitions:
- Husband and wife: To immigrate through this process, your spouse must either be a U.S. citizen or a green card holder. The petition requires establishing that the marriage is bona fide and that a relationship existed between the spouses prior to their marriage, among other requirements.
- Sons and daughters or children of U.S. citizens: Petitions to immigrate for unmarried sons and daughters and children also require that the family relationship be established by substantiating documentation in order to be approved.
- Sons and daughters or children of permanent residents
- Brothers and sisters of U.S. citizens: Only U.S. citizens may petition for their brothers and sisters to live in the United States. This type of petition is not available to permanent residents.
