Alien Relative Petitions
Immigrant Visas and Adjustment of Status
The law permits US citizens and lawful permanent residents to file immigrant petitions on behalf of certain family members.
Depending on a number of factors, the process can take a few month or many years. In some cases, relatives who are physically present in the United States can become lawful permanent residents (adjust status) without leaving the U.S., in others they must obtain immigrant visas abroad.
Sometimes people are found to be inadmissible (ineligible to receive a visa or adjustment of status). When this happens, they may be able to apply for a “waiver,” a form of an amnesty or exception from application of general rules.
