Family-Based Immigration

Omaha Family Immigration Lawyers

Family-based immigrant petitions are one of the biggest categories utilized to obtain permanent resident status in the United States. U.S. citizens may apply for a spouse, fiancé(e), parent, sibling, or children (including minors, adults, and married adults). Lawful permanent residents may apply for a spouse and children (including minors and single adults). The processing times vary based on the country of citizenship as well as which type of relative who is applying.

To learn about your options for family-based immigration into Nebraska, count on Carlson & Burnett. Our Omaha family immigration attorneys would be happy to hear from you, discuss your immigration situation, and guide you to the best decision. If you should be filing for an immigrant visa or legal status not based on a family connection instead, then we will let you know and can help you with that situation, too.

Family Immigration Processing Options

When pursuing permanent resident status through a family member, there are two major processing options. “Adjustment of status” to lawful permanent residence is processed within the United States, depending on eligibility. Other cases are processed via U.S. Embassies abroad in a system known as consular processing. Cases processed abroad result in an immigrant visa, which allows the family member to enter the U.S. to claim their permanent residency.
