Which Family Members Can I Welcome to the United States?
U.S. citizens who have realized their American dream have the opportunity to share it with their family back home. Citizens who are at least 21 years old may petition to bring their siblings and parents to the country. Unfortunately, permanent residents (green card holders) may not petition for their siblings’ or parents’ entry.
Citizens may also petition for children, grandchildren, and children-in-law. Permanent residents may petition only for their unmarried children and grandchildren.
How Can I Bring My Spouse to the United States?
U.S. citizens may bring their spouse to the United States by filing Form I-130, Petition for Alien Relative. If the citizen’s spouse is outside of the United States, the pair will wait for approval of the form and receive further instructions on how to proceed from the consulate or embassy. If the couple is currently legally residing in the country, they will file Form I-485, Application to Register Permanent Residence or to Adjust Status alongside the I-130 application.
Permanent residents may also welcome their spouses to the United States by filing Form I-130. The only difference in the process is for spouses already in the United States. Spouses of green card holders already living in the country must wait for a visa number to become available before applying to adjust status with Form I-485.
