Family Immigration Can Be Difficult, Don't Face It Alone Attorney Alen Takhsh Is here to help you through the process!


With the family-based category, there are both immediate relative and preference relative categories. The immediate relative category is not subject to the a numerical cap, while the preference relative category is subject to a cap, i.e. only a certain number of visas are made available.


This means that you will need to have a Evanston immigration attorney from Takhsh Law, P.C. to guide you through the application process. We will also need to determine if you are eligible to be considered an immediate relative to the U.S. Citizen who is sponsoring you. To learn more, call us. If you prefer, send us an email by filling out an online form.


The ability to obtain a green card for an immediate relative may be somewhat less cumbersome, but this does not mean that the process is any less complex. Obtaining a green card and going through the application process can be very daunting, especially for elderly clients. Even one simply mistake that you failed to take notice of could lead to an application being denied and having to start all over. Our firm understands that you may feel overwhelmed as you prepare to petition for your loved ones, and we can assist you in getting through the application process as seamlessly as possible.

An immediate relative is defined as the following:

  • The children of a U.S. Citizen who are unmarried and under 21 years of age
  • The spouses of a U.S. Citizens
  • The parent of a U.S. Citizen, the latter being 21 and over

A preference relative is defined as the following:

  • The brothers and sisters of U.S. Citizens
  • The married sons or daughters of U.S. Citizens
  • The spouses and unmarried children of lawful permanent residents
  • The unmarried sons and daughters of U.S. Citizens who are 21 and over
