These two categories define the type of relationship and the immigrant's priority in obtaining a green card. The immediate relative categories are the most desirable.Immediate Relatives Visas: Immediate relatives include spouses, parents, and unmarried children (under 21) of U.S. citizens. Such Visas are always available to immediate relatives. Thus, such immediate relative visas are based on a close family relationship with a United States Citizen described as an Immediate Relative (IR). Immediate relative's immigrant visas are not subject to the preference categories noted below. (The number of immigrants in these categories is not limited to each fiscal year)

Why do you need a Lawyer to Help you With Your Immediate Relative Petition?
Information about U.S. Immigration is readily available online. Suppose you have a clear case that qualifies for the immigration benefit. In that case, you can go to the USCIS website, fill out the forms, and file your case according to the USCIS instructions. Still, if you are not confident and have any criminal history, illegal entries, or run-ins with immigration authorities, you need an experienced lawyer. In India and other countries, people choose Immigration agents, which can be very dangerous for their immigration matters. We always advise not to trust cheap and uneducated agents because most of them are not updated with new policies and U.S Immigration laws.
F4 India law firm can help you sort out what’s legit and junk and how the rules, regulations, statutes, case law, and policies apply to your case.Our Experienced lawyers are better equipped to understand the law and determine how it applies to your specific situation. The difference between getting approval and getting a denial often comes down to your lawyer and the advice they provide. You will save yourself time, avoid risks, minimize stress, and receive maximum benefits with F4 India. Without our guidance, the process is usually more overwhelming, and the outcome is much more uncertain.
Immigration law is complex and ever-changing. The decisions and findings are often entirely discretionary and highly subjective. A small mistake could end up costing you more money in the long term, result in unnecessary delays, and lead to denial of the petition/application and even deportation from the United States.
We’ve seen so many clients mess up their cases because they tried to do things themselves, such as attending a marriage-based green card interview and responding to a Notice of Intent to deny the visa petition without counsel. If you are not clear exactly what you are doing,get legal advice from an experienced attorney.
