Family Immigration

Family Immigration

GHP is experienced in all types of family-based immigration, including but not limited to petitions for family members, adjustment of status to permanent residency based on a family relationship, consular processing for relatives overseas, including nonimmigrant visas (fiancé K-1, spouse K-3 visa, visitor B-2), and adoption. We diligently research each individual’s immigration history and prepare thorough applications to avoid unnecessary delays in our clients’ cases.

GHP has successfully represented numerous clients in their Green Card applications based on marriage or relationship to U.S. citizens or permanent resident relatives. GHP is sensitive to the diverse cultural and economic backgrounds of our clients and their families. We are experienced in effectively presenting family relationship evidence to help our clients demonstrate the good faith nature of their relationship that is often required for getting their Green Cards. We also represent clients whose cases are subject to fraud investigations, where a good faith family relationship is wrongfully suspected and investigated by the immigration service.

GHP is also experienced in dealing with complex issues in family-based immigration, such as those requiring waivers of inadmissibility, and those involving complex legal issues such as a minor child aging-out or retaining a priority date when the visa category changes. We are able to effectively demonstrate hardship to U.S. citizen or permanent resident relatives and convince the immigration service to grant waivers for the benefit of family unity.
