Lawyers to Help with Form I-130 – Petition for Alien Relative
Filing Form I-130 with the United States Citizenship and Immigration Services (USCIS) is your first step in helping an eligible relative immigrate to the United States. Officially titled the Petition for Alien Relative, Form I-130 establishes relationships between United States citizens or lawful permanent residents (LPR) of the United States to an eligible relative who wishes to immigrate to the U.S. By filling this form, you are indicating to the USCIS that you are willing to help your relative get lawful permanent residence, also known as a green card. If you’re trying to help a relative get a green card, AG Law is here to help you in this first step of filling out and filing the I-130 correctly the first time.
Filing Form I-130 in New Jersey
There are 12 pages of notes, instructions and requirements for the I-130. Missing just one piece of information, not attaching a document or forgetting a signature can cause delays, or, in many cases, denial, forcing you to have to start all over again. AG Law specializes in filing the I-130 and in immigration law. We have helped hundreds of immigrants and their family members. We want to help you and your family as well.
Form I-130 is only the first step in helping a relative get a green card. It does not give them permission to come to or remain in the U.S., but rather shows that you are willing to help them obtain a green card. USCIS approval of the I-130 is required before your relative can file a green card application. Once it’s approved, your relative can move forward with filing the next forms.
You can file a separate I-130 for
- Your spouse,
- Your unmarried children under 21 years of age,
- Your unmarried sons or daughters 21 years of age or older,
- Your married sons or daughters of any age,
- Your brothers or sisters (you must be 21 years of age or older), or
- Your mother or father (you must be 21 years of age or older).
