Queens Immigration Lawyer Keetick L. Sanchez Explains Family-Based Immigration
June 03, 2022 at 16:26
Queens immigration lawyer Keetick L. Sanchez releases a new article (https://accidentlawyer-queens.com/what-is-family-based-immigration/) explaining family-based immigration in NYC. The lawyer mentions that for some families, it is very important to be together when looking for new opportunities and preparing for their future. This is true when family members are separated in different countries.
“Our country was founded on the concepts of freedom and family, and, fortunately, in the United States, we have laws that make it possible for families to help each other come together here to enjoy our immense opportunities. Immigration laws are complicated for anyone, but especially for individuals who don’t speak the English language,” says the Queens immigration lawyer.
The lawyer explains that in any matter involving family-based immigration, there must be at least two family members involved: a petitioner or a lawful permanent resident, and the other is the beneficiary who is seeking an immigrant visa. In some cases, the beneficiary may also have a spouse and children who may be able to qualify as beneficiaries.
Attorney Keetick L. Sanchez explains that an immigrant visa is required for any foreign citizen who is looking to live permanently in the United States. The person must be sponsored by a family member who is either a United States citizen or a U.S. green cardholder. There are also two different categories of family immigrant visas. One is an immediate relative visa, and the other is a family preference visa.
In the article, attorney Keetick says that an immediate relative visa is for close family members or immediate relatives such as spouses, parents, and unmarried children under 21. These visas are unlimited to immediate family members of United States citizens. Anything that is not an immediate relative immigrant visa is considered a family preference visa.
According to the immigration attorney, “While immediate family visas are unlimited, family preference visas are limited in number each year. Consequently, there is usually a backlog of most family preference category visas. The basic application process begins when a citizen or lawful resident family member petitions for a family member to immigrate.”
Lastly, attorney Keetick Sanchez emphasizes the importance of seeking help from an experienced immigration lawyer when it comes to matters surrounding immigration. A skilled lawyer may be able to help the client understand their rights and ensure that they don’t feel uncertain about their situation.
