Williams Global Law attorney, Simone Williams recently received prompt approval of an immediate relative immigrant visa for a foreign spouse based on marriage to a U.S. citizen. The I-130 immigrant visa petition and I-485 adjustment of status was filed for the client in the U.S.; and the client received her green card in only 8 months! It usually takes USCIS over a year, at minimum, to process these applications, depending on which office the case is submitted. Further, the application was approved and processed without the requirement for an interview by an USCIS officer to determine the validity of the marriage, as is customary.

The Immediate Relative Immigrant Visas is based on a close family relationship with a U.S. citizen described as an Immediate Relative. This is a direct route to U.S. permanent residency ("green card") and the number of immigrants in this category is not limited in each fiscal year. Immediate relative visa types include: IR-1: Spouse of a U.S. Citizen IR-2: Unmarried Child Under 21 Years of Age of a U.S. Citizen IR-3: Orphan adopted abroad by a U.S. Citizen IR-4: Orphan to be adopted in the U.S. by a U.S. citizen IR-5: Parent of a U.S. Citizen who is at least 21 years old Williams Global Law has a particular depth of experience with family-based immigrant visa cases. If you would like experienced immigration counsel on this route to U.S. permanent residency, please schedule a consultation today with one of our immigration attorneys at
