Immigrating to the United States is an opportunity for an exciting adventure, though leaving family behind to do so is bittersweet. Luckily, the United States provides its citizens and permanent residents with the ability to petition for immigrant visas for their family in other countries to join them here.
If you have family abroad who are looking to join you in enjoying an American life, contact our family immigration lawyers. We’re fluent in all immigration procedures and can help you find and apply for the proper visas as easily and efficiently as possible.
Orange citizens and permanent residents petitioning for family-based immigrant visas should contact Yekrangi & Associates today.

While both U.S. permanent residents and citizens can petition for relatives to come to the country, more priority and opportunities are given to citizens and their families. A citizen’s relative may become a permanent resident, or green card holder, if they are:
- A spouse
- A child of any age and marital status
- Parents, if the petitioning U.S. citizen is 21 or older
- Siblings, if the petitioning U.S. citizen is 21 or older
Our attorneys will listen to your particular case and help you create an immigration plan based on the family you’re petitioning for.
Visas for Foreign Partners and Children
Our Orange family immigration attorneys can help American citizens with family they marry into as well. A citizen’s fiancé(e) and children or stepchildren may come over on the following K visas:
- K-1 visas are for a citizen’s fiancé(e) to come to the United States to marry within 90 days
- K-2 visas are for children of K-1 visa holders
- K-3 visas are for a citizen’s husband or wife
- K-4 visas are for children of K-3 visa holders
After coming to the United States on a K visa, spouses and children can file Form I-485, Application to Register Permanent Residence or Adjust Status to start the process of obtaining a green card and become a legal permanent resident.
