Family Sponsored Immigration Throughout Dallas And Texas
Family sponsored visas are available to family members citizens under a number of categories, including:
Spouses and fiances of U.S. citizens: The citizen or permanent resident spouse or fiancé of the immigrant can act as that individual’s sponsor. Visas are also available for the immigrating individual’s children.
Parents of a U.S. citizen over the age of 21: Citizens of legal age may act as sponsor of a parent or parents seeking to enter the country.
Unmarried children of U.S. citizens under the age of 21: Citizens and permanent residents who can prove that the child is their own can act as sponsor of that child, bringing him or her into the country.
Children being adopted by a U.S. citizen: Orphans may be sponsored by U.S. citizens seeking to legally adopt them. There must be a formalized agreement between both countries regarding the adoption.
Unaccompanied minors: In certain situations, unaccompanied minors may be able to enter the country as a ward of the state or sponsored by a relative.
Once in the country, the immigrating individual and his or her sponsor can petition for the appropriate green card or naturalization status. Currently, an immigrating person can still file for an immigrant visa if he or she has overstayed the visa. This must include filing a waiver based on hardship that has come to your sponsor.
