The Classification System “Family Reunification” has been the principal policy underlying U.S. immigration law. Because of this, close relatives of U.S. citizens and legal permanent residents (LPRs) are eligible to process paperwork to be admitted to reside in the United States as LPRs. LPR status is an immigrant visa which allows individuals to live and work in the United States. This is commonly referred to as having a “green card.”

The family preference system allows the following individuals to immigrate:

• Adult children (unmarried and married) of U.S. Citizens
• Brothers and Sisters of U.S. Citizens over 21 and
• Spouses and unmarried children of LPRs.

There are a limited number of visas available every year under the family preference system. The preference categories go from 1st preference to 4th preference and establish the priority dates and numerical limitations by which family members are eligible to apply for their immigrant visas. Please see the visa bulletin at http://www.travel.state.gov/visa/frvi/bulletin/bulletin_1360.html for a detailed list of those preferences and the priority dates for those preferences. The visa bulletin is issued by the Department of State and is usually released in the middle of the prior month.

It is important that employers understand their roles and responsibilities and possible implications for failure to comply with the laws and regulations. Keep in mind, that penalties and sanctions can be imposed for “knowingly submitting fraudulent visa applications” for foreign workers. Employers have the responsibility of first of all having a bona fide job to offer, properly and timely posting the job offer, paying the employee the prevailing wage and of course notifying USCIS upon termination.

Immigration forms can be obtained through the USCIS.gov web page and although they are free, you should still contact an attorney for advice and a proper consultation. Keep in mind that most immigration forms require a filing fee.

En la pagina de USCIS.gov puedes conseguir formularios del servicio de inmigracion de Estados Unidos. Siempre busca la opinion, consulta y asesoria de un abogado. El formulario por si solo no garantiza el exito durange un ramite. Tener acceso a los formularios ayuda saber los costos ent us gestiones.
