Family-Based Immigrant Visas

New York Immigration Lawyers Work to Keep Families Together

Experienced attorneys can help family members get visas

It is heartbreaking to see families separated by national borders. If you are a U.S. citizen, you can apply to bring your family members to the United States on an immigrant visa. At Pollack, Pollack, Isaac & DeCicco, LLP, our attorneys help you through the process of reuniting your family.

Steps toward a family-based visa

If you are a citizen, you are allowed to bring to the United States your spouse, unmarried children younger than 21, and parents older than 21. Grandparents, aunts, uncles, cousins and in-laws are typically not eligible. There are limits on the number of immigrants allowed into the United States each year, and your application is likely to be delayed if that number already has been met. You should work with a qualified immigration attorney for assistance with:

  • Filing forms. The first step toward receiving a family immigration visa is filing a Petition for Alien Relative, Form I-130, with the U.S. Citizenship and Immigration Services (USCIS).
  • Documentation. After filing the petition, you must provide a number of documents to the federal government, including passports, an affidavit of support, and marriage and birth certificates.
  • Interview. Embassy or consulate officials interview all applicants before a visa is issued. Our team can prepare you for this interview.

Advice on deferred action for childhood arrivals

Our immigration attorneys also assist with Deferred Action for Childhood Arrivals (DACA), a program that applies to children brought to the United States before their 16th birthday who no longer have or never had legal immigrant status. Applicants who meet the criteria will have their deportation deferred for two years, with an option to renew the deferment. In addition, a recently passed law allows immigrants who entered the country illegally to apply for work visas without having to return to their home country and risk being barred from returning to the United States for up to 10 years.

The lawyers at our firm have a deep knowledge of immigration law and can help you through the process toward citizenship. We take care of the paperwork so you can focus on the needs of your family.
