U.S. Citizenship Petition for Other Relatives Inside of the United States
Petition for Relatives Inside the U.S.
If you are a U.S. citizen, you can file a petition for U.S. citizenship for children (unmarried, over the age of 21), married children at any age, and brothers and sisters (if the U.S. citizen is over the age of 21).
You must begin the process by completing Form I-130, Petition for Alien Relative (available here https://www.uscis.gov/i-130). You must submit the petition with appropriate supporting evidence as well as the filing fees ($535). Supporting evidence refers to the documents that demonstrate the relationship between you (the petitioner) and the family member for whom you are filing (also known as the beneficiary).
What Can You Expect After Applying?
A receipt will be sent to confirm that USCIS received the petition. However, if you have filed the form incorrectly or if there are errors, under new rules, the USCIS can reject the petition altogether. In some cases, especially where the petitioner failed to or forgot to supply the necessary evidence, USCIS may request additional information. This will result in significant delays.
At Liberty Law, we are experienced in immigration challenges and issues. We would help you fill out all the paperwork and answer any concerns or questions you may have as it pertains to your specific case.
USCIS will send a notification to the petitioner when a decision is made. The U.S. Department of State’s National Visa Center (NVC) will then invite the relative to apply for an immigrant visa if approved.
It is important to be aware, however, that when the relative arrives at the U.S., the petitioner must agree to be a financial sponsor. To do that, form I-864, Affidavit of Support, must be filed. The form is available on the U.S. Citizenship and Immigration Services website (https://www.uscis.gov/i-864).
