Here to Help Families Solve Immigration Problems

Keeping families together is important to Helton, Cody & Associates, PLLC.

It is heartbreaking when a spouse, child, or other qualifying relative has to leave their family. Yet, that is just what happens on a regular basis when the system breaks down.

Our firm is helping families stay together who contribute to our nation’s diversity and livelihood.

Green Card Options

Congress created two main ways to help loved ones of American citizens and lawful permanent residents to sponsor their loved ones for a green card. If you are a spouse, child, brother, sister, or fiancé of an American citizen you may qualify for a green card if the relative successfully files a petition on your behalf and meets other requirements.

If you are the spouse or child of a lawful permanent resident, the same applies to you. Some family members may have similar options, but with preference categories with numerical limits.

All Families Welcome

A person married to an American citizen of the same sex qualifies as an immediate relative, regardless of where the marriage took place or where the couple currently live. The USCIS will recognize same sex marriages, so long as the marriage was solemnized in a location where the marriage is legal.

Derivative benefits may be available to the foreign national’s children if the children qualify as step-children under the federal guidelines.
