F4 Visas – Family Based Green Card Lawyer
If you are a brother or sister of a 21-year-old or older United States citizen or lawful permanent resident then you may be eligible to apply to become a lawful permanent resident (green card holder) with an F4 visa application. It is called the F4 visa because it is the fourth category in the United States Citizenship and Immigration Services’ (USCIS) Green Card for Family Preference Immigrants section.
What You Need to Know Before Filing for the F4 Visa
Depending on where you are in the world will determine which forms you need to file, documentation you need to submit, fees you need to pay and process you need to go through. It can be difficult to figure out everything you need to do and when you need to do, especially if you’ve never done it before. But AG Law has worked with hundreds of immigrants to get through the F4 visa process successfully and we want to do the same for you.
If you are currently in the United States, and want to apply for an F4 visa, here is an example of the kinds of things you need to know:
- How to properly file Form I-485–Application to Register Permanent Residence or Adjust Status.
- If you were inspected and admitted or inspected and paroled into the United States.
- If you are eligible to receive an immigrant visa.
- If the relationship to the family member who filed Form I-130–Petition for Alien Relative, for you still exists.
- If none of the applicable bars to adjustment of status apply to you.
- If you are admissible to the United States for lawful permanent residence or eligible for a waiver of inadmissibility or other form of relief.
This is not the entire list of things you need to know. And, if you’re not currently in the U.S., there are even more things to consider. We can help you find the answers to these questions and help you whether you’re in the U.S. or not. We’ve done this countless times and have helped many immigrants get their F4 visa.
