Moving away from the place in which you were born and raised is tough, but migrating out of your country to make a home in another is even more difficult—especially when, more often than not, you cannot take your family with you. Many American citizens today have left their home countries to chase the American dream, but once they are here, they find that success is lonely when they do not have anyone to share it with. Fortunately, the U.S. government allows family-based immigration, which allows U.S. citizens and lawful permanent residents (green card holders) to petition for green cards for their family members.
At Kriezelman Burton & Associates, LLC, our family-based immigration lawyers have been reuniting families for over 40 years, and now we want to help you. Contact our Cicero, IL immigration law firm to learn more about what you need to do to petition for your family so that they may join you over here in the land of the free.
In accordance with the Immigration and Nationality Act (INA), there are two categories of family based immigrant visas that may be issued to family members of citizens or lawful permanent residents (LPRs):
In accordance with the rules and regulations set forth by the INA, there are an unlimited number of immigrant visas available for immediate relatives of U.S. citizens. Immediate relative visa types include:
On the other hand, family preference immigrant visas are limited, and are for specific, more distant, family members of U.S. citizens. LPRs can also petition for a family preference immigrant visa, but who they may petition for in this category is even more limited than who a U.S. citizen may petition for in this category.
The family preference categories, and how many visas available for individuals of each category, are as follows:

One of my relatives just received her Green Card and the credit goes to Kevin Raica and his Paralegal, Aga Bogdanowicz. The final “Adjust Status Petition” including the supporting documentation was 128 pages long! There is no way we could have compiled this level of detail much less have it be error free on our own. The whole process took around 8 months which is to be expected; however, the Petition package was so complete that no interview was required. If you ever have need of immigration legal service you just can’t go wrong with Kevin Raica and the immigration…
