Family Based Immigration Committed to Restoring Hope and Rebuilding the Lives of Our Clients

Family-Based Immigration Matters

Our Burtonsville Lawyer Keeps Families Together

As a U.S. citizen or lawful permanent resident (Green Card holder), you can sponsor family members living abroad who wish to come to the U.S. to live and work. The process of family-based immigration is subject to complicated rules, documentation, and deadlines, and it should never be attempted without the help of an attorney who is experienced in this field of law. Lacking the assistance of an immigration lawyer can lead to unnecessary delays, pitfalls, complications, and denials.

At the Law Office of Eshigo P. Okasili, LLC you can work with an attorney who is a former immigrant with personal experience, as well as legal experience, in this matter. Our Burtonsville immigration attorney understands the anxiety and stress that can accompany immigration proceedings since she has been through them herself. Attorney Eshigo Okasili brings understanding, compassion, and individualized attention to your situation as we guide you through each phase of the process

Family-Based Immigration

Family-based visas are granted to the immediate relatives of a U.S. citizen or Green Card holder without limitation. Relatives who are not immediate family members, however, are subject to an annual quota of individuals allowed to be sponsored under U.S. Department of State guidelines. Only 480,000 non-immediate family members can obtain visas through this process each year.

Immediate family members are:

  • Spouses
  • Minor children under the age of 21
  • Parents

Non-immediate family members are:

  • Unmarried sons and daughters of U.S. citizens under the age of 21
  • Spouses of lawful permanent residents
  • Unmarried children of lawful permanent residents under the age of 21
  • Married sons and daughters of U.S. citizens
  • Unmarried children of lawful permanent residents over the age of 21
  • Siblings of adult U.S. citizens

Fiancé(e)s of U.S. citizens and their children can also obtain Green Cards through family-based immigration, as well as widows and widowers of U.S. citizens.

Serving Clients across Montgomery County & Surrounding Areas

The family-based immigration process begins with a petition that must be approved. This is followed by either a process called adjustment of status for those inside the U.S., or consular processing for those still residing outside the U.S. We are here to help you navigate the entire process, and we are committed to helping you achieve your goals.
