There are several types of family petitions.
"Spouse" means a legally married husband or wife.
This type of petition changes very frequently so it is more than necessary to consult with a lawyer who specializes in immigration to have the latest information at your disposal.
It is important to take into account that a marriage application of spouses who are less than 2 years old will result in a conditional residence, so they would have to remove the conditions and check again that the marriage is in good faith.
Depending on the age and marital status of your children, the strategy used to obtain the visa will depend. For example, a “minor” is defined as that person under 21 years of age. On the other hand, if the person has been married and / or is over 21 years of age, it is defined as “son” or “daughter.”
If the child in question lives outside the United States, a specific request must be processed. This request will be sent for consular analysis.
If you are a citizen of the United States and your child meets the requirements, you can petition your child immediately. This will give you the possibility of moving to the United States and being able to live, work, or study legally.
If you have a desire and intention to bring your parents to live in the United States, you must be a US citizen (you cannot be a permanent resident) and be at least 21 years old.
After processing your request, you will be notified whether your request has been approved or denied. In the case where applications are approved, you should go to the consular process to finalize your visa process if your parents reside outside the United States.
If any of your parents are within the United States, both he or she may be eligible for a residency process. For additional information on how to process this application, do not hesitate to contact us.

When a visa is available, you can begin the consular process or apply for a residence depending on your sibling's immigration status and depending on whether you live inside or outside the United States.
