USA Family Reunion Visa

When close relatives live in the United States, many think about moving to this country for permanent residence. Such requests are especially relevant today, given a number of risks in many regions of Ukraine. Let’s take a closer look at the types of US visas that can be issued on the basis of family reunification. We’ll also tell you how the services of the law firm Prikhodko & Partners can be useful.


What are the types of family reunification visas in the USA?

So, we are talking about such types of visas as:

  • US visa for children of the bride or groom;
  • visa for spouse;
  • visa for children of spouse;
  • visa to reunite parents with children who have US citizenship;
  • visa to reunite children with parents who have US citizenship;
  • visas provided for relatives of different categories.

It is also worth mentioning the gradation of visas from the last of these points according to certain designations and explain what each of them means. Thus, the F1 visa is intended for unmarried children of a US citizen. It also applies to their young children (i.e., the citizen’s grandchildren).

The F2 visa is available to the second spouse, minor children of a permanent resident of the United States, and his unmarried children over 21 years of age.

The F3 visa is intended for married children of a citizen. It can also be issued for the second spouse of these children and their young children (grandchildren of the citizen).

Finally, it is worth mentioning the F4 visa. It can be applied for by brothers and sisters of US citizens, or the second spouse of a brother or sister. The visa is also available to minor children of a brother or sister. But there is an important condition here that the citizen himself must be at least 21 years old.

Here is a basic overview of the different types of US visas that can be obtained on the basis of family reunification. However, if you go deeper into the topic, you will find out more options, since not only the last one, but also most of the items from the list above have their own internal gradation. For example, let’s touch on the issue of visas for spouses. For example, an IR1 visa is available for the spouse of a US citizen or Green Card holder in cases where the marriage lasts more than 2 years. The CR1 visa covers the same grounds, but in cases where the marriage lasts less than 2 years.

So, before dealing with the issue of obtaining a visa, you need to have a good understanding of what kind of visa you need. This helps to correctly collect the package of necessary documents and do everything to speed up the process of its registration. In order not to deal with a huge amount of information on your own and not to act by trial and error, you should use the help of professional lawyers who can provide truly qualified support to their clients.
