How can my family members get Green Cards?

You may sponsor your family member to obtain a Green Card if you already have a Green Card yourself, or if you are a US citizen. You cannot act as a sponsor if you are a foreigner in the US on a work visa, student visa, visitor's visa or other visa.

If you are a US citizen, you may help the following members of your family obtain their Green Cards:

  • your husband or wife;
  • your children, stepchildren, and adopted children;
  • your parents, stepparents, and adopted parents;
  • your sisters and brothers, or your stepsisters or stepbrothers.

If you are a Green Card holder, you may help the following family members get their Green Cards:

  • your husband or wife;
  • your unmarried children, including unmarried stepchildren and adopted children.

You may sponsor more than one family member at a time provided you have enough income to meet certain minimum income requirements for sponsorship OR another person with sufficient income takes the responsibility for the sponsorship together with you.

Just because you can be a sponsor, this does not mean your family member automatically qualifies for a US Green Card. There are many immigration rules and USCIS (known previously as INS) procedures that affect the ability to obtain a Green Card in addition to how long it will take. An improperly filed Green Card petition can result in considerable delays.

If you believe you can be a sponsor for your family member, give us a call and we will assist and answer any questions you have. There is no charge for phone consultations and all calls are treated Confidentially.

  • your husband or wife;
  • your adult child, adult stepchild or adopted child;
  • your parent, your stepparent or adoptive parent;
