A United States Citizen or permanent resident (green card holder) can file an I-130 petition for a relative, which establishes the existence of a familial relationship with the relative who wishes to obtain permanent residency in the United States.
If you are a U.S. citizen you are allowed to file an I-130 petition for the following relatives: spouse; unmarried children under age 21; unmarried children age 21 or older; married children of any age; brothers or sisters (as long as you are age 21 or older); and mother or father (as long as you are age 21 or older).
If you are a Permanent Resident of United States, you can file an I-130 petition for the following relatives: spouse; unmarried children under age 21; and unmarried children age 21 or older.
We can help file the I-130 petition and present evidence demonstrating why the I-130 petition should be approved. Remember, that if your relative wants to obtain permanent residency in the United States, they are likely to require an approved I-130 petition before being allowed to obtain their permanent residence (green) card.
