Reliable New York Family-Based Immigration Attorney
Your family means everything to you. Naturally, you want to be able to live with your spouse and children under one roof, and even give your parents or siblings the opportunity to immigrate to America, too. At Kenepaske & Scott, PLLC, I have practiced immigration law for more than 10 years. I know the stress and worry that going through the process of family-based immigration can cause. I have the legal experience and knowledge of the government immigration system to help you keep your family together in the U.S. or reunite with your loved ones who are overseas.
Relatives You Can Sponsor.
Immigration law allows U.S. citizens, and in some cases even permanent residents, to sponsor relatives for immigrant visas. I can help you petition for the following family members:
- Children, both minors and adults
I will work with you to secure immigrant visas for one or more of your loved ones. A family-based immigrant visa lets your relative live and work in the U.S. permanently and puts them on the path toward eligibility for U.S. citizenship as well. I will prepare you for any government interviews and ensure all the paperwork is completed correctly.
Common Myths About Family-Based Immigration
Most foreign nationals think that by simply marrying a U.S. citizen, you automatically get a visa. Nothing in immigration law is ever simple or automatic. Similarly, the fact that you may have lived in the U.S. for many years, paid taxes, stayed out of trouble, and have children here does not necessarily mean you can easily obtain a visa or are not at risk of deportation.
Some Family-based immigration cases can be resolved quickly and some can take many years – every case is unique.
