Family Based Immigration for Parents of U.S. Citizens
In order to promote family unity, the parent of any United States citizen will qualify as an immediate relative and thereby, be given special priorities throughout the immigration process. The U.S. citizen son or daughter, however, must be at least 21 years of age in order for their parent(s) to qualify for this form of family-based immigration.
Immediate relatives of U.S. citizens that qualify for the “family preference category” do not have to wait in a long queue for visa availability; there is an unlimited amount of visas for individuals who fall under this category. In order to begin the process, an individual’s U.S. citizen son or daughter (over the age of 21) must file a petition in favor of their parent’s potential permanent residency.
