Immigration Law Associates Brings Family Members Together Through Immigration to the U.S.
We Prepare Family-Based Immigration Cases
In family-based immigration cases, our goal is usually to prevent or minimize separation of family members. We assist couples with marriage-based adjustments, families to immigrate to the U.S. before their minor children age out, and clients with relatives living abroad plan the best reunion strategy. We also help families cope with the unexpected, for example separation or divorce during a marriage-based adjustment. And for those who have gained permanent residency, our staff specialist can help assess whether naturalization is a desirable step.
Some of the people we have helped include the following:
- Two parents in India, who turned to ILA for help when the U.S. consulate there approved permanent residence for them and their younger daughter – but not for their elder daughter, who had already turned 21. However, we were able to show the consulate that the elder girl did qualify under the Child StatusProtection Act (CSPA), and the U.S. consulate reversed its decision and granted her permanent residence.
- A husband and wife whom the USCIS suspected of marriage fraud, largely because they were of different ethnicities. We were able to help them prove their marriage was a genuine, good-faith relationship.
