Categories of Family Preference Visas
The exact process you use to obtain a family-based green card will depend
on your current location. If you are in the U.S. lawfully, you will need to
adjust your status to permanent residence, which you can do without leaving the country.
If you are not yet in the U.S., you will need to apply for an immigrant
consular processing, and you will present this visa at a U.S. port of entry. If CBP allows
you into the U.S., you will receive your green card in the mail.
There are four categories that family members fall into, based on the immigration
laws of the United States.
The four preference categories include:
- Adult (21 and older) unmarried children of U.S. citizens.
- Spouses and unmarried children of lawful permanent residents. Children
under 21 have a higher preference within this category than those who
are 21 or older.
- Married children of U.S. citizens.
- Siblings of U.S. citizens (citizens must be 21 or older).
