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.

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.
