Family Based Petitions

The United States has the intention of being a place that is welcoming to all. However, strict immigration laws make it challenging for many to realize the American Dream and enjoy the country and the culture that has been created here. Thus, it is often the case that some people feel that they are very much left out of all that the US promises to be. That is why we work so hard at the Hall Law Office to help people who want to reconnect with family members that are in another country.

The Visa application process can take a very long time in the United States, and the same is true for green cards. Without access to those, it is often a slog to get families reunited. This is very unfortunate because families truly belong together, and it is a shame to see so many of them kept apart simply because of the taxing immigration system that keeps people away from one another.

Family-Based Petitions

There are family-based petitions that can be heard by a court to potentially speed up the green card process. If someone is a legal and permanent resident of the United States with no criminal issues or concerns of any kind related to that, then they are likely to be in a position where they can make a plea for help getting a green card to a relative who lives outside of the country.

The order of preference for who may make these types of petitions is as follows:

  • Immediate relative
  • People applying for their unmarried children over the age of 21
  • People applying for their spouses or unmarried children under the age of 21
  • and so on

The court will hear the pleas and will make a determination based on the facts of the case. We ask that you please reach out to us at the Hall Law Office to get the most up-to-date information about your particular case and to allow us to assign one of our seasoned and talented attorneys to help out in your case. We believe that we can be of assistance, but we can only do so once you give us a call.
