Family-Based Green Cards

Family-Based Green Cards

Representation from Our Immigration Lawyers in Houston

Legal permanent residency in the United States can be obtained through sponsorship by a relative. This method to obtain residency is commonly used, but there are specific limitations. Residents can only sponsor spouses, children, and parents of the U.S. citizens who are under the classification of "immediate relatives."

Citizens of the U.S., however, can sponsor the following relatives for lawful permanent residency:

  • Spouses
  • Children
  • Adult sons
  • Adult daughters
  • Parents
  • Brothers
  • Sisters

How Are Family-Based Green Cards Obtained?

Green cards through family members can be applied for by either a United States citizen or permanent resident. Immediate relatives of a citizen are given greater preference to obtain lawful permanent residency through this form of sponsorship.

Immediate relatives include:

  • Spouse
  • Unmarried children under age 21
  • Parents

Relatives who are not considered "immediate" may be able to be sponsored through a "family-preference category." Individuals who may be eligible include the unmarried sons or daughters over the age of 21, married children of any age, and brothers / sisters of the citizen.

    “She answered any and every question we had”

    Choosing Rodriguez Law Office was the best decision my husband and I have made regarding his residency. She answered any and every question we had. Was also so honest and helpful during the process. We will definitely go back to her in the future and appreciate everything she was able to do for our family. Would recommend Rebekah to anyone in need of a immigration lawyer.

    “The level of professionalism, efficiency, and knowledge in the matter exceeded all my expectations.”
    Without a doubt having Rebekah representing me during my immigration process has been a huge blessing. The level of professionalism, efficiency, and knowledge in the matter exceeded all my expectations. Not only was she able to accommodate me for a consultation on the same day, but worked extremely fast to submit my request to USCIS. From that point on, the communication, the explanation of fees and expenses, and the submission of responses to USCIS were all on point. Not only has Rebekah been able to help me, but also has helped several friends and family members that I have referred her to. I am very thankful with Rebekah and her team, as despite the high complexity of my situation, she was able to transform the nightmare I was living into a very blessing experience.
