Do you have immediate family currently residing outside the United States?
Are you wondering whether they are eligible for green cards as a result
of your U.S. citizenship or permanent resident status? If you have a family
member who is interested in obtaining a green card, you may be able to
petition on their behalf.
Immediate family members and what the government refers to as "preference
relatives" can apply for green cards as long as they are sponsored
by one of the following individuals:
- A parent can be sponsored by a U.S. citizen age 21 or older
- A spouse can receive sponsorship from a U.S. citizen spouse
- Minor, unmarried children can be sponsored by a U.S. citizen parent
- Married or adult children are given preferential relative status when sponsored
by a parent who is a U.S. citizen
- Brothers and sisters of US citizens also have preference relative status
- Unmarried children can receive preference relative status when sponsored
by a parent with permanent resident status
- A U.S. permanent resident can sponsor his or her spouse as a preference relative
Waiting periods for those seeking a green card can vary greatly. Immediate
family members are not restricted by green card numerical limitations.
Preference relatives will be given priority. Wait time for preference
status vary from months to many years
