What is a Family Based Petition?

Family based petitions allow U.S. citizens or Lawful Permanent Residents (LPRs) to sponsor their specific family members to immigrate to the United States. There are two types of family-based immigrant categories: immediate relative and family preference.

Immediate relative visas are based on the relationship the U.S. citizen or green card holder has with the foreign citizen.

Examples of immediate relatives are:

  • A husband or wife
  • A minor (under 21), unmarried child of a U.S. citizen
  • Unmarried son or daughter over 21 years old
  • Married son or daughter of any age

If you are a U.S. citizen who is over 21 years old, you may also petition any brothers or sisters and your parents.

Family preference visas cover distant family relationships and there is a limit to how many immigrants are given admission to the U.S. every fiscal year.

Are There Limits to Family-Based Immigration?

There are limits to family-based immigration when it comes to the type of relative you may petition for as a U.S. citizen and as a lawful permanent resident.

U.S. citizenships may sponsor:

  • Their spouse
  • Their children
  • Their parent
  • Their siblings

A Lawful Permanent Resident may sponsor:

  • Their spouse
  • Their unmarried children
