Family-Based Visa Types

The two types of family-based visas are:

  • Immediate Relative: To obtain permanent residency in the United States, a foreign citizen must secure an immigrant visa (IV) through sponsorship by an immediate relative. The sponsoring relative must be a U.S. citizen or lawful permanent resident aged 21 or older.
  • Family Preference: These visas are designed for certain, less immediate family ties with a U.S. citizen and some defined relationships with a Lawful Permanent Resident (LPR). The annual allocation of immigrants in these categories is restricted.

There are many factors that go into determining whether someone will be eligible for a family-based visa. Our Sunnyvale family & marriage visas attorney can help you understand whether your family member will be eligible and help you through the application process.

  • Permanent residency in the United States
  • The ability to apply for U.S. citizenship
  • Access to certain government benefits, such as Social Security and Medicaid
  • Access to federal and state benefits, such as college tuition assistance and professional licensing
  • The ability to sponsor relatives for visas
