Family-Based Immigration Services

Permanent legal resident status, often referred to as a green card, allows immigrants to live and work legally in the United States. The Law Offices of Scott Warmuth can speed up the application process and increase your chances of success by helping you or your family members in the permanent residence application process.

Immediate relatives of U.S. citizens can apply for an IR visa without entering lotteries and do not face immigration quotas. Under certain circumstances, a conditional resident (CR) visa may be issued instead.

  • IR1 Visa – Spouse
  • IR2 Visa – Unmarried child under 21 years of age
  • IR3 Visa – Orphan adopted abroad
  • IR4 Visa – Orphan to be adopted in the United States
  • IR5 Visa – Parent of a U.S. citizen over 21 years of age

Family-sponsored visas apply to a broader range of family members, but face limits on how many are issued every year, which can cause a long waiting period before approval. There are four categories of family preference for immigration. Each preference category has its own quota number.

  • F1 Visa – Unmarried children over 21 years of age of U.S. citizens
  • F2 Visa – Spouses, children under 21 years of age, and unmarried children over 21 years of age of legal permanent residents
  • F3 Visa – Married children of U.S. citizens and their spouses and children under 21 years of age
  • F4 Visa – Siblings of U.S. citizens and their spouses and children under 21 years of age

While technically a non-immigrant visa, K Visas are issued to fiancés and spouses of United States citizens and often lead to permanent residence.

  • K1 Visa – Available only to fiancés of U.S. citizens entering the country for the purpose of marriage
  • K3 Visa – If a U.S. citizen marries outside of the country, their non-citizen spouse is eligible for a K-3 visa, but the visa must be issued in the country where the marriage occurred
