A Seasoned Marriage Immigration Lawyer Serving the Bronx, NY
The Process of Petitioning for a Marriage Based Immigration
A U.S. citizen or Legal Permanent Resident files a Petition for Alien Relative on behalf of the immigrating spouse with the U.S. Citizenship and Immigration Services (USCIS) in the U.S.
If the immigrating spouse is inside the U.S., the immigrating spouse may, under certain situations, file for Adjustment of Status along with the Petition for Alien Relative. Please refer to the Adjustment of Status page for more information.
After the Petition for Alien Relative is filed, USCIS sends a receipt notice confirming that they received the Petition for Alien Relative.
After a decision is made, a written notice of decision is mailed to the U.S. citizen or Legal Permanent Resident.
If USCIS approves the Petition for Alien Relative and the immigrating spouse is overseas, USCIS will send the Petition for Alien Relative to the U.S. Department of State’s National Visa Center (NVC). When an Immigrant Visa becomes available, the NVC will notify the U.S. citizen or Legal Permanent Resident and the immigrating spouse, inviting the immigrating spouse to apply for an Immigrant Visa. Please refer to the Consular Processing page for more information.
Marriage Based Immigration for Derivative Relatives
If the Petition for Alien Relative is filed by a Legal Permanent Resident, separate Petition for Alien Relative is not required for each and every child (unmarried and under 21 years of age) of the immigrating spouse.
