Which Family Visa Applies to My Situation?

Family-based immigration visas allow immigrants to become permanent residents of the United States through a family member who is already lawfully residing in the country. The process begins when a family member files an immigration petition on your behalf; from then on, this person will be referred to as your "sponsor." In order to ensure that your sponsor meets the age and relationship requirements for fulfilling this role, contact a Connecticut immigration attorney at the Law Offices of James A. Welcome.

These visas are referred to as LPR (lawful permanent resident) visas, and the number of these visas issued each year is limited.

  • First Preference Visas (F-1): Visas for unmarried sons and daughters. These visas are limited to 23,400.
