At JJ Moore & Associates, we offer the best immigration lawyers to help you successfully complete your family visa application process. A visa for family members is designed to grant access to:

Immediate Relatives for whom a family visa is immediately available:

  • Spouses and children of U.S. citizens under the age of 21
  • Parents of U.S. citizens

Preference Categories who will have to wait for a visa to become available:

  • Unmarried children of U.S. citizens over the age of 21
  • Spouses and children of permanent residents
  • Unmarried children of permanent residents over the age of 21
  • Married children of U.S. citizens
  • Siblings of U.S. citizens

Other Family Visa Opportunities

In addition to the above mentioned situations, there are other qualifiers for obtaining a visa for family members. For instance, if you are engaged to an individual living in another country, you can file for a fiancé visa.

Help with Fiancé Visas

The fiancé visa process is different than your typical visa. Your future spouse must apply to immigrate to the United States for the purpose of marriage. They will also be granted the ability to bring along any children under the age of 21 with a K2 visa. As long as you are married within 90 days of arrival, your future spouse will be eligible for permanent residency. Because of the differences with a fiancé visa, it is important to work with a lawyer who understands the need of filling out the paperwork properly and submitting the correct documentation. Failure to do so can lead to unnecessary delays or denial of the request.

We Help You Gather the Right Documents

If you are interested in bringing family members with you to the United States, our immigration lawyers will help you put together your documentation to present to the U.S. Citizenship Immigration Services for those living in the United States or the local U.S. Consulate for those who reside in a foreign country. This process will take a varying length of time depending on the current backlog and the qualifications. This length of time changes on a monthly basis, making it important to check it often. Our immigration lawyers in Nashville can tell you how long your case is likely to take if you file at the present time. Once you make the decision to move forward, we will help you get started.
