Comprehensive Family-Based Immigration Assistance in Dallas, Texas

America has long been known as the land of opportunity, and people across the globe often seek to come to the United States to pursue a better life for themselves and their families. Family-based immigration is an essential component of U.S. immigration policy, allowing U.S. citizens and lawful permanent residents to sponsor certain family members for legal entry into the country. This pathway allows families to be together and start new lives while contributing to the nation's social fabric and economic prosperity.

If you are considering family-based immigration, it is important to have legal guidance to navigate the complex legal process. At John W. Lawit, LLC, we have years of experience helping clients successfully navigate immigration laws. Our team of dedicated attorneys understands the challenges faced by families who have been separated by geographic boundaries, and we are committed to reuniting loved ones through legal channels.

Understanding Family-Based Immigration

Family-based immigration allows certain relatives of U.S. citizens or Green Card holders (lawful permanent residents) to immigrate permanently to the United States. There are two broad categories under which eligible individuals may apply:

  • Immediate Relative Visas: These visas do not have annual limits like other visa categories because immediate relatives—spouses, unmarried children under 21, and parents (if the petitioner is at least 21)—are given the highest priority for admission.
  • Family Preference Visas: This category includes certain eligible applicants who do not qualify as immediate relatives but who are related to U.S. citizens or lawful permanent residents. The availability of these visas is based on a preference system, with limitations on the number of visas that are available on an annual basis. The categories include:
    • First preference (F1): First priority is for unmarried adult children of U.S. citizens.
    • Second preference (F2): Second priority is for spouses, unmarried children (minor or adult), and unmarried children of lawful permanent residents.
    • Third preference (F3): Third priority is for married children of U.S. citizens, as well as their spouses and minor children.
    • Fourth preference (F4): Fourth priority is for siblings of U.S. citizens (if the petitioner is at least 21), as well as their spouses and minor children.
