Immediate Relative Visas


Los Angeles Family Visa Lawyer

Who Are Immediate Relatives?

A United States citizen or Legal Permanent Resident (LPR) may be able to sponsor his/her family members for visas.  Who qualifies as an immediate relative? Immediate Relative Immigrant Visas may be issued to the following types of family members of a U.S. citizen:

  • Spouse;
  • Unmarried child under the age of 21;
  • Foreign orphan, legally adopted in a foreign country;
  • Foreign orphan who will be legally adopted in the U.S.; and
  • Parent of a citizen who is at least 21 years of age
The greatest benefit of an immediate relative visa assuming your relative qualifies, is that an immigrant visa always is available.
