Family-Based Visas

Northwest Immigration & Criminal Defense LLP - Family Visas

Our immigration lawyers are here to help reunite your family

Immigration attorneys at Northwest Immigration & Criminal Defense LLP are available to help with a variety of family-based visa applications. Whether you are trying to reunite with a family member or marry your loved one from abroad, we provide personalized immigration legal services in your language.

We provide immigration legal services to individuals throughout the State of Oregon and beyond. In many cases, there are multiple ways to achieve similar results in immigration law. Our Spanish-speaking and Russian-speaking attorneys will take the time to understand your situation and decide on the best route for you as an individual.

Some of the most common family-based cases in Oregon are:

- Fiancé/fiancée visas

- Petitions based on marriage to a U.S. citizen

- Petitions for children of U.S. citizens

- Petitions for parents of U.S. citizens

- Petitions for siblings of U.S. citizens

- Petitions for relatives of legal permanent residents (Green Card holders)

- Violence Against Women Act (VAWA) petitions for victims of domestic violence and abuse

- Waivers of inadmissibility

Why should I hire an immigration attorney to do a family visa petition?

Although a visa application may seem simple, depending on your relative's situation, the overall case can be much more complex. The wrong information (or even the right information stated incorrectly) on a visa petition for your relative can cause significant delays in USCIS's processing your case. In some situations, a mistake could even cause USCIS to deny your petition.

Our immigration lawyers will take the time to meet with you for a consultation--a chance for you to get to know us and for us to get to know you. During this consultation, we will ask the necessary questions to understand your story and your relative's story. Because there are sometimes multiple ways of accomplishing the same goal in immigration law, we will discuss any options with you and help you make an informed decision. Finally, we will build the best family visa petition possible to help you reunite with the person you love.
