Who is a Family Visa Lawyer?
Family immigrant or visa lawyers are the lawyers who specialize in family-based petitions. They will assist you in getting a successful outcome and reuniting with your family through immigration. You can bring your family to the country if you comply with immigration laws and standards.
When applying for a family-immigrant visa, you must keep various things in mind. Firstly, you must understand the types of visas a family member can get. The visas are generally given based on the relationship with the U.S. citizen. Whether you’re a spouse, child, or parent of a U.S. citizen, you can seek citizenship and apply for a family visa.
How can a family immigration attorney help you?
The process of visa application is based on relationships. Extended or preference-based family members may have to wait a little longer than close relatives to get approval for the visa. There are unlimited visas available for immediate relatives, whereas family-preference visas are limited and available only annually.
Even an immediate or close relative may face difficulty obtaining the visa because of a lack of paperwork and official information. An immigration lawyer may serve as a savior for all those relatives seeking citizenship. The family-based immigration lawyer is well-versed in the process of immigration. They are specialized in family immigration and will assist you in getting through the process easily. The success rate of obtaining the visa increases when you take the help of a legal attorney. Here are some of how a legal attorney can help you:
- Completing paperwork and application form
Every visa application requires a lot of paperwork and documentation. It may get difficult to understand and fill out all the details. Missing out on a single document or eligibility criteria may lead to the denial of the application. If your application gets denied, you will have to start all over again, which is a lengthy process. Therefore, a legal attorney can help you and make the process easier. You should contact the Philadelphia family immigration attorney at the earliest to ensure that all the details are filled in correctly.
- Guide you through the process
A family immigration lawyer will assess whether you are eligible or not. The rules will differ if you want to apply for a green card and get permanent residence in the country. The eligibility criteria will be different for preference-based visas. Therefore, the attorney will first check whether you fulfill the eligibility criteria.
They will guide you throughout the process and help you sponsor a family member’s visa application. The rules and regulations for visa applications are continually changing. A family immigration lawyer will guide you, keeping the current laws in mind.
