Why You Need a Family-Based Immigration Attorney in Miami

Family-based immigration in the U.S. can help keep family members together, but the laws are complex and limit the number of family-based immigrant visas issued. Generally, there are two types of family-based immigrant visas – Immediate Relative and Family Preference:

  • Immediate Relative (IR) visas are for spouses, unmarried children (under the age of 21), parents (21 or older) of U.S. citizens, and orphans adopted abroad or to be adopted in the U.S.
  • Family Preference (FP) visas are for more distant family members, such as siblings and unmarried adult children of U.S. citizens and spouses, minor children, and adult children of legal permanent residents.. However, grandparents, grandchildren, nephews, nieces, uncles, aunts, cousins, and in-laws cannot be directly petitioned for family preference visas.

In addition, a K-1 visa allows a U.S. citizen to bring their fiancé or fiancée to the U.S. to conclude the marriage, which must occur within 90 days after admission.

You can depend on our family-based immigration attorney to follow all procedures, ensure your visa application contains all the required documentation, and faithfully represent you before U.S. Citizenship and Immigration Services (USCIS).

Shannon Rosales knows the ins and outs of the immigration system and has spent her career supporting families seeking to stay together or reunite in the U.S. Above all, Shannon understands the hardship family separations can cause and will guide you through the process.

Employment-Based Immigration Law Attorney in Miami

Shannon Rosales Law advises businesses and their prospective employees on obtaining immigrant and nonimmigrant visas:

  • An immigrant visa may be issued to a foreign national seeking to live permanently in the U.S.
  • A nonimmigrant visa is for a foreign national temporarily entering the country for business, work, study, tourism, or medical treatment.

In particular, our immigration lawyer helps businesses sponsor nonimmigrant workers for H-1B visas. These visas allow highly educated foreign nationals to work in the U.S. temporarily, such as:

  • Individuals in specialty occupations requiring a bachelor’s degree or its equivalent (H-1B visa)
  • Employees working on cooperative research projects through the U.S. Department of Defense (H-1B2 visa)
  • Fashion models of distinguished merit and ability (H-1B3 visa)
