Throughout the globe there are many individuals who dream of immigrating to the United States. Many of these individuals make the incredibly difficult decision to come to America, even if it means leaving loved ones behind in their home country. The U.S. Citizenship and Immigration Service allows these individuals to sponsor those family members so that they, too, can come to live in the United States. The process is far from easy. It is complex and confusing and many times, you will have to deal with an unfriendly bureaucracy.
It is for this reason that if you are going through the process of immigration, or you wish to sponsor a family member, you should speak to an Evanston family immigration lawyer right away. An attorney can tell you about the two main ways to sponsor a family member, which include processes for immediate family members, and for distant relatives.
There is no limit to the amount of family-based immigrant visas that are issued every year. This means that if you wish to sponsor an immediate relative, you already have a better chance than if you were to sponsor a distant family member. Your loved ones may qualify for an immediate relative visa if they:
When one or more of these factors applies to your situation, an Evanston family immigration attorney can help you sponsor your immediate relative for immigration.
Distant relatives are categorized under family preference immigration visas. Unlike visas for immediate relatives, the government does limit how many of these types of visas are issued every year. For this reason, the process sometimes takes longer and becomes much more complicated. However, your family members may still be eligible for a family preference visa if they:
While the definitions of those who qualify for a family preference visa are straightforward, the process is not. Anyone wishing to apply needs to speak to an Evanston family immigration lawyer who can help with the case.

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.
