Family-Based Immigration

Comprehensive counsel on family-based immigration issues

As a family-based immigration attorney, I can explain the procedures and requirements that are involved with different forms of family-based immigration. In most cases, my clients are U.S. citizens or permanent residents who seek information and assistance with the best ways to obtain entry or permanent residence in the United States for a relative: parent, spouse, fiancé or fiancée, son or daughter, brother or sister. I can help you understand what to expect and what must be done. The Law Office of Kip Evan Steinberg serves family, individual and business clients nationwide and around the world. My versatility and breadth of experience in U.S. immigration law represent a significant benefit for my clients.

Family-based immigration and visas

Much of my work for family clients involves achieving legal entry into the United States, maintaining status, adjusting status, changing status and finding the fastest and most effective ways to meet immediate or ongoing immigration objectives. I give you clear explanations of all your options, so that your choice is based on sound advice and clear judgment.

Examples of the kinds of family immigration situations I handle include:

  • Permanent residence (green card) for immediate relatives
  • Entry and permanent residence for non-citizen spouses
  • Preference categories for family-based immigration visas
  • Non-immigrant K-3 visas
  • Fiance or fiancée visas
  • Adjustment of status
  • Consular processing
  • Family-based waivers of inadmissibility
  • Naturalization and citizenship
  • Removal defense
  • Deferred Action for Childhood Arrivals (DACA)

I explain each process carefully, so that you know just what to expect: length of time, priority dates, evidence and documentation requirements, visa bulletins, interview process, and the affidavits of support that must be completed for the non-citizen relative.

You receive straightforward and timely answers to your questions while getting the information you need to make informed choices about your family.
