Keeping the Family Together
We at Teplen Law Group, PLLC, are aware that successful settlement in the U.S. must be achieved by addressing the biggest challenge: preserving family unity. Our attorneys possess exceptional experience in making use of opportunities the United States Citizenship and Immigration Services (“USCIS”) make available to foreign nationals, granting them the ability to live and work in the U.S. and travel internationally.
These opportunities are based upon a qualifying relationship with a U.S. citizen or permanent resident.
Both U.S. citizens and permanent residents have the ability to file a petition for members of their immediate family, depending upon the individual relationship. This petition, based upon a qualifying relationship can be made either in the United States, or in your home country at a U.S. embassy or consulate.
Path to Citizenship
Relatives who may qualify:
- A Spouse or unmarried children of a U.S. Citizen or Permanent Resident
- Children (married or single) of the U.S. Citizen (over the age of twenty-one (21)
- Parents of the U.S. Citizen (over the age of twenty-one (21)
- Siblings of a U.S. Citizen
- Orphan child/Adoptee (under sixteen (16)
- Amerasian children fathered by a U.S. Serviceman during either the Vietnam or Korean War
These relationships shall also lead to a “Green Card.”
After obtaining “Permanent Resident” status, you are eligible to become a U.S. citizen within three to five years of obtaining your “Green Card.” Although the path to citizenship, permanent residence, and legalization of a non-immigrant visa is often a long and complicated process, our team of dedicated professionals are here to guide you through it, making the whole experience as easy as possible for you.
