Advice About Family Sponsorship

Get Practical Guidance On Challenging Immigration Issues

In spirit and intent, the United States government supports family unification, but the letter of immigration law is not as friendly. It can be confusing and frightening to navigate the immigration system (USCIS, US. Department of State, Customs and Border Protection, National Visa Center and overseas Embassies and Consulates) as you try to bring your family together in the U.S., but success is attainable with patience and perseverance. My own family's immigration story is proof of this.

Family sponsorship is an important aspect of my family-based immigration practice at the office of Susan Saliba, Attorney at Law, which is based in Dedham, Massachusetts. I can explain how it works and walk you through the process, step by step.

Bringing Families Together

You may be in need of legal advice and representation regarding your children, your spouse, your parents, your brother or your sister. You may possess some understanding of U.S. immigration rules, but you may need a lawyer to help you achieve the result you want — bringing family members to live in the United States as soon as possible. That's where I come in. I will help you find answers to questions like:

  • Do I need to prove that I have a certain amount of income to sponsor a family member?
  • What is a Joint Sponsor and what income do they need in order to qualify?
  • What if I am a business owner?
  • Will my family members be able to work when they get here?
  • How long will it take to bring my spouse or my fiancé/fiancée to America? How much will it cost?
  • Who will get all the paperwork together?
  • Does it matter if I was married before?
  • Do we need to attend an interview with the government and will anyone come with us?
  • Is it realistic to work toward a green card for my family member?
  • How do I contact the Embassy or Consulate overseas?

These are essential questions, and the answers will depend on factors that are specific to your situation.
