Our Immigration Services

At Warren Law Firm, we focus exclusively on U.S. immigration issues. The most common issues we address include:

Family, Fiancé and Spouse Visas With Help From a San Francisco Immigration Attorney

The first step in many family-based immigration cases is obtaining a visa. There are different types of visas available, depending on your relationship to the person sponsoring you for immigration.

Each of these family visas has its own requirements, depending on your circumstance. Generally, people who want these visas must have a U.S. citizen or lawful permanent resident sponsor them. The sponsor must also prove that they can financially provide for the person coming to the U.S. and meet other criteria.

Fiancé Visa with Warren Law Firm

Fiancé Visas

If you are engaged to be married to a U.S. citizen, you may be eligible for a K-1 fiancé visa. After you enter the United States on this visa, you must marry your sponsor within 90 days. After you marry, you can then apply for a green card to become a lawful permanent resident.

Spouse Visa

Spouse Visas

If you are already married to a U.S. citizen or lawful permanent resident, you may be eligible for a spouse visa. There are two types of spouse visas: a CR1 visa is for people who have been married for fewer than two years, while an IR1 visa is for people who have been married for more than two years.

Immediate Relative Visas

An immediate relative visa does not have any annual limits and allows you to apply for a green card as soon as you enter the United States. You may be eligible for an immediate relative visa if you are the spouse of a U.S. citizen, the child of a U.S. citizen (under 21 years old and unmarried) or the parent of a U.S. citizen (if the citizen is 21 years or older).

Family Preference Visas

Family preference visas are subject to annual limits and have longer wait times before you can apply for a green card. You may be eligible for a preference visa if you are the spouse of a lawful permanent resident, the child of a lawful permanent resident, the unmarried child of a U.S. citizen (21 years or older), the married child of a U.S. citizen, the sibling of a U.S. citizen (21 years or older) or the parent of a U.S. citizen (if the citizen is over the age of 21).
