The world may be more connected and people may be more mobile, but nothing replaces the feeling of being with your loved ones. We know that behind every sponsorship is the story of people who simply want to be together. These cases are particularly important and rewarding for us.

Sponsorship has a long history of success in the United States, but there are several restrictions that may delay petitions. A limited number of family-based immigrant visa numbers are available, and those numbers are distributed so no one country or preference category dominates the process. You should expect a longer wait time if the person you are sponsoring is from a country with a large immigrant population in the United States, for example.

If you would like to move to the United States to be closer to your fiancée, spouse, or family member, a Northern California family-based immigration attorney from our law firm can help you understand the process that will bring your family together. Our attorneys will be here to answer your questions every step of the way.
