Pathways to Immigration
Continuing on our series of blog about US immigration laws, todays blog focus is on immigration options and path to US residency.
Our last post was fun fact about green card. So what are the pathways for a person to get green card? One of the option is family based immigration whereby, whereby a US citizen or resident can petition for family members.
There are main 6 categories of family based immigration:
