What Types of Family Visas are Available to Me?
There are two categories of family visas with an immigrant status that you can obtain in New Port Richey. They are divided into types of entry permissions: immediate relative immigrant and family preference immigrant.
Immediate Relative Immigrant Visas
If you have immediate relatives who are citizens of a different nation, family visas can be granted to them if you are a United States citizen.
Immediate relatives include:
- A foreign spouse
- An unmarried child under age 21
- An orphan adopted from a different nation
- An orphan who will be taken for adoption from abroad
- Your parent, if you are 21 or older
Family Preference Immigrant Visas
It is possible to attain family visas for distant relatives if you are a United States citizen. In the case that you are a legal permanent resident, you can apply in certain cases as well.
Relatives you can file for if you are a U.S. Citizen (your attorney can discuss the preference order for granting various entries) include:
- Unmarried sons or daughters. Children who are minors can also be included.
- Married sons or daughters, with their spouses and minor children.
- Brothers and sisters, their spouses, and minor children.
A permanent resident can file for individual family members as well, including:
