What is Family-Based Immigration?

A Family-Based Green Card is a type of immigration visa that lets immigrants live with their close relatives in the United States. Those who qualify as close relatives include your spouse, children, parents, or siblings; however, those who do not qualify are your grandparents and cousins.

There are several types of Family-Sponsored Green Cards, they include Immediate Relative visas, K-visas, and Family Preferences visas.

Immediate Relative Visa:

The number of Immediate Relative visas issued can be limited based on the type of Family-Based Green Card. Visas with annual limits or caps are processed in chronological order.

  • IR-1 is for spouses of US citizens.
  • IR-2 is for children of U.S citizens that are under 21 and unmarried.
  • IR-3 is for kids adopted abroad by U.S citizens.
  • IR-4 visa is for children who are going to be adopted in the U.S.
  • IR-5 is for parents of citizens 21 years or older.

Family Preference Visa:

Family preference visas have annual limits on how many can be issued per year.
