Types of Family Based Immigration

There are many different options for U.S. family immigration. The main family based immigration

  • Family Visas: There are 2 options for a current United States citizen or Lawful Permanent Resident (Green Card holder) to sponsor a family visa:
    • Immediate Relative: Applicants must have a close family relationship with a U.S. citizen, such as a spouse, child or parent. The number of immediate relative immigrants is not limited.
    • Family Preference: These visas are for specific, more distant, family relationships with a U.S. citizen and some specified relationships with a Lawful Permanent Resident (LPR - Green Card holder). The number of immigrants in these categories is limited each fiscal year.
  • Fiancé(e) Visas: A current United States citizen may be able to sponsor their fiancé(e) for immigration to the U.S. if they plan to marry within 90 days of their fiancé(e)’s entry into the country on a K-1 nonimmigrant visa. They can then apply for lawful permanent resident status in the United States (a Green Card).
  • Spouses of Visa Holders: If your spouse has an employment visa, you and your children may be able to immigrate under an H-4 dependent visa. This visa will allow your family to remain in the United States and work or start a business as long as your spouse’s visa is valid.

There are many other types of family based immigration visas available, including

  • Refugees
  • Asylum
  • Adoption
