Family Visas

The Law Office of Ivan Neel also handles family visa petitions. U.S. citizens or Lawful Permanent Residents (LPR) who are 21 years or older may apply for family relatives to join them in the U.S. The two types of family-based visas offered are:

  • Immediate Relative – Visas based on a close family relationship with a U.S. citizen, such as a spouse, child, or parent.
  • Family Preference – Visas are for specific, more distant, family relationships with a U.S. citizen or some specified relationships with an LPR. 

U.S. citizens can petition for immigrant visas for their spouse, children, parents, or siblings, while LPRs can only file for their spouse or unmarried child. 

Other Visa Petitions

Other common visa petitions include student visas and cultural exchange visas. Foreign citizens who will be studying at an American educational institution will need to obtain a student visa. The most popular student visa is the F-1 visa, which allows a foreign student to reside temporarily in the U.S. for a fixed period of time while studying at a U.S. school, college, seminary, or conservatory. F-1 student visas are not immigrant visas; they merely provide temporary legal status and limit where you can work (and what type of work) as a foreign student. Reach out to the Law Office of Ivan Neel to learn more about your abilities and limitations as an F-1 visa holder. 

As for cultural exchange visas, also nonimmigrant visas, there are two categories for individuals participating in exchange programs in the U.S.:

  • J visa – For participants of exchange programs designated by the Department of State that are designed to promote educational and cultural exchange between the U.S. and other countries. 
  • Q visa – For participants of international cultural exchange programs designated by the Department of Homeland Security that provide practical training and employment and share the history, culture, and traditions of your home country with the U.S.

If you are in the process of applying for a visa, do not hesitate to contact the Law Office of Ivan Neel for legal support immediately. Mr. Neel can take a closer look at your situation to determine what type of visa works best for your situation and how to build a strong application for your visa.
