Family-Based Immigration

Family-based immigration is an immigrant visa classification. It allows a foreign national to become a lawful permanent resident through a relative who is a citizen or lawful permanent resident of the United States.

Both the immigrant and the U.S. citizen or permanent resident must successfully complete the immigration process to allow the foreign national to come to live and work permanently in the U.S. The U.S. citizen or permanent resident must sponsor the foreign national, proving that he or she has enough income or assets to support the immigrant when he or she enters the U.S.
