Obtaining US Green Card Through Marriage/Family and Estimated Wait Times by FitzGerald & Company

Boston Immigration Attorney Desmond P. FitzGerald Helps Eligible U.S. Citizens and Permanent Residents Request That Permanent Residency Be Granted for Their Immediate Family Members

BOSTON, MA -- (Marketwired) -- 05/13/14 -- As described on this newsletter by Desmond P. Fitzgerald, one of the most common ways in which immigrants become US residents (Green Card holders) is through a Marriage/Family Immigration Petition (form I-130). Within this way of obtaining US residency, there are two main categories:

1. Relatives of U.S. Citizens
2. Relatives of US Legal Permanent Residents

Read this newsletter about family green card petitions where you can learn who are included in these two categories listed above and the estimated length of time that it takes for a visa to be available for different types of relatives (spouses, parents, children, step children, and US citizen brothers and sisters). Specifically, you will be able to learn:

1. For what family members can US Citizens apply for a Green Card/Residency and what are the estimated wait periods to obtain their Green Card?
2. For what family members can US Legal Permanent Residents apply for a Green Card/Residency and what are the estimated wait periods to obtain their Green Card?
3. If a person is present in the US without permission (entered illegally or overstayed a visa) and is married to a US citizen, can they file for US legal permanent residency/adjustment of status?
4. What is an I-601 waiver?
5. Who qualifies as a stepchild for immigration purposes?
