Family-Based Immigration To Bring You Close to Your Loved Ones

Above all else, we understand how difficult it is to be separated from your family — and how arduous the process of being reunited can be.

Family-based immigration is near and dear to our hearts. Our team believes that bringing families together is one of the most rewarding aspects of our job. If you are a U.S. citizen or lawful permanent resident (a green-card holder) looking to sponsor a member of your family, we are happy to lend you a helping hand.

There are two types of family-based immigration visas you can apply for:

  • Immediate Relative — These visas are available for close family members, such as children, spouses, or parents.
  • Family Preference — These visas are available for distant family members, and there is a limited number you can apply for each year.

We can determine which family-based immigration visa is best suited for your situation, help you apply for it, and walk you through the process. Our team has years of experience in the field of family-based immigration, and we are here for you from beginning to end — that is to say, from the first form you file until the last interview you hold with USCIS.

Work With a Leading Visa Immigration Lawyer

Visas are granted to immigrants based on their specific reasons for traveling to the U.S., and not all visas grant a pathway to citizenship. If a family member or someone you know is interested in applying for a visa, don’t hesitate to reach out to The Vigneault Firm.

Our attorneys specialize in different aspects of immigration law, including work visas, student visas, spousal visas, family immigration visas, and other immigrant visas.

We can determine whether you or someone you know is eligible to receive a visa and, if yes, what requirements they need to fulfill to successfully obtain it. Each situation is unique, which is why we like to meet with clients to discuss how we can best help their case.

We’ll Help You Navigate the Adjustment of Status Process

Adjustment of status is the process by which you can become a green-card holder, opening up new pathways and possibilities in your personal and professional life.

As with all facets of immigration law, challenges are bound to arise. Not everyone is qualified to become a lawful permanent resident, which is why it’s important to work with a knowledgeable attorney. Not only will we take the weight off your shoulders by completing and filing all the necessary paperwork and their corresponding fees on your behalf, but, most importantly, we can help you avoid deportation and offer expert legal advice about how to improve your current immigration status.

Once we apply for your adjustment of status, here is what you can expect the process to look like:

  1. Determine Your Green Card Eligibility: You must meet specific eligibility requirements in order to apply for a Green Card. We’ll determine which immigration category you should apply under and help you fulfill the application requirements.
  2. File for an Immigration Petition (if applicable): Most Green Card applicants will also need an immigration petition completed by their sponsor in order to file Form I-485 for adjustment of status. This is true for those who are here on a work visa, looking to attain a marriage-based Green Card or joining a family member in the U.S.
  3. Check Visa Availability (if applicable): One of our visa immigration lawyers will review and confirm your visa availability and priority date to ensure you can move on to the next step.
  4. File Form I-485: This form and its supporting documents must be filled and filed correctly to be considered for a Green Card. Our attorneys can help ensure a prompt response.
  5. Complete Your Biometrics Services Appointment: Once the USCIS office begins processing your application, you will receive a mail notice detailing the time, date, and location of the Application Support Center (ASC), where you will provide your fingerprints, photograph, and signature. Missing or choosing not to attend this appointment may result in the denial of your Green Card application.
  6. Attend Your USCIS Interview (if applicable): After the USCIS office reviews your case, they may contact you for an interview. At the interview, you will need to answer questions under oath regarding your application or immigration status.
  7. Complete Request for Additional Evidence (if applicable): You will be contacted for additional evidence if any information on your application is missing, incomplete, or incorrect. Working with a reputable immigration attorney can help you avoid this step.
  8. Wait for a Decision: Finally, you will receive your decision letter from the USCIS office in the mail. In the meantime, you can review the status of your application online. If you are denied, our team may file a motion to reopen or reconsider your case.

Are you ready to apply for a lawful permanent resident status and start living the American Dream? Then, it’s time to get in touch with our adjustment of status lawyers!
