Family Petitions

In everything our lawyers do, keeping your family together is our priority.

Making an application for immigration is often based on family members who have already obtained their legal status. There are a number of options available to you, including:

  • K1 Visas for Fiances
  • K2 Visas for Children of a Fiance
  • K3 Visas for Spouses
  • K4 Visas for Step Children

At Maduabum Law, our lawyers are in the business of reuniting families in New Jersey.

Receiving your green card offers some much needed certainty and stability. Our attorneys want to help you navigate the different visa options so that you can be safe in the knowledge that your status inside the country is secured.

One of the most common ways in which immigrants adjust their status is through a family-based petition. This occurs because the immigrant has a family member who is considered an immediate relative and is a United States citizen. USCIS defines immediate relatives as:

  • Spouses
  • Children (younger than 21 and unmarried)
  • Parents of citizens who are 21 or older

If the applicant immigrant is not in the United States, they may still obtain a green card to become a legal permanent resident through consular processing. When this occurs, an immediate relative will have to file a Petition for Alien Relative (Form I-130) with USCIS. The petition will be transferred to the National Visa Center, and the applicant immigrant will have their interview at a United States embassy or consulate in the country in which they reside.
