Family Based Immigration

Experienced Family-Based Immigration Attorney—New York and Nationwide

We Can Help You Seek Lawful Permanent Residency Status through a Family Member

One of the ways you can pursue lawful permanent residency (a green card) in the United States is through a family-based immigration visa. The process, though, can be complex and confusing. The rules differ, based on whether the person sponsoring you is a citizen or a lawful permanent resident. There are also a couple different ways to pursue a family-based visa—either through an immediate relative or through what’s known as a “family preference.” To successfully pursue a family-based visa, you want an experienced immigration lawyer to guide you through the process.

Working Hard to Build Strong Client Relationships

We understand the deeply personal nature and consequences of immigration issues, and have always worked hard to build strong relationships with our clients. When you come to us for help, we’ll provide a thorough and honest assessment of your case, including your chances of successfully obtaining a family-based visa. We don’t take every case that comes to us—we won’t agree to represent you if we don’t believe we can get your visa application approved.

Keeping You Fully Involved and Informed

We understand the stress and anxiety that come with uncertainty about your immigration status. We will keep you fully involved and informed at all times, making certain you understand the law and the process, as well as your rights and options. We will immediately notify you of any developments in your application, and we’ll always be available to discuss the different strategies available to you.

In our two decades in practice, we have seen many changes to the U.S. immigration laws and procedures. We work diligently to stay current with all developments, so that we can provide accurate counsel at all times. To set up a private meeting, send us an e-mail or call the offices of Jamal Jbara at 718-361-7984.
