Some families may find immediate family immigration helpful
Sometimes, a family ends up being separated, with one of the members being in the U.S. and having U.S. citizenship and the other members being foreign citizens and being outside of the United States. Families in this sort of situation sometimes have a strong desire to be reunited here in the United States. Among the things, such families may wonder is what options they have for trying to bring about such a reunification.
What U.S. immigration options family members of a U.S. citizen have depends on many things, including what their exact familial relationship is with the U.S. citizen.
For example, certain close relatives of a U.S. citizen may qualify for the immediate family immigration process. Minor children, parents, and spouses of U.S. citizens are typically eligible for this process. Also, there are some circumstances under which stepchildren, stepparents, and adopted children of U.S. citizens can have eligibility for this process.
As this underscores, U.S. family immigration law is a very complex area of law with many different potential avenues, and many different things can have the potential to be impactful in family immigration matters.
