South Florida Parents Petition

Parents Petition Lawyer in South Florida

Book A Free Consultation

It is hard to enjoy your time in the United States when your parents reside in another country. Trips abroad are expensive, so you cannot see them in person as much as you would like. You might try to fill in the gaps with phone and video calls, but it is not the same as being in the same room as them. Fortunately, you can take steps to bring your parents here through family-sponsored immigration as long as you are a U.S. citizen. A successful parents petition will allow your mother and father to live and work in the United States as permanent residents.

Because this is a complicated process, having an attorney guide you through each step is helpful. Contact our firm today to set up a free consultation with our South Florida parents petition lawyer.

Requirements to Sponsor Parents

You must meet the criteria to sponsor your parents. That means you must:

Be a United States citizen
Be at least 21 years of age
Have proof that they are your parents
Have an income that is at least 125% above the poverty line
File all necessary paperwork

How To Petition For A Parent To Come To The U.S.

You will have to file Form I-130 and provide evidence of your citizenship to bring your parents to the U.S. If you were not born in the United States, you will need to provide a copy of your U.S. passport or your Certificate of Naturalization. You will also need to include other supporting documentation based on the situation.

For instance, if you want to bring your mother to the country, you will need to supply a copy of your birth certificate that displays both of your names. You will also need a birth certificate that shows your name, your mother’s name, and your father’s name, if you want to bring him over. Additionally, the petition requires a copy of your parents’ civil marriage certificate if they were married. If they were never married, you must show evidence that you and your father had a financial or emotional bond before you reached the age of 21 or got married.

These are some examples of the evidence you must provide with your petition. Our South Florida parents petition lawyer can discuss this in greater detail.

Employment Authorization

Your parents will automatically be granted work authorization once their visas are approved. However, it is slightly different if your parents are trying to adjust their status while they are already in the country. In this case, they can apply for work authorization while waiting for approval. Our bilingual South Florida parents petition lawyer can assist with this. Contact our firm for a free consultation to discuss the next steps to help your parents enjoy many of the rights afforded to U.S. citizens.

I highly recommend the Santos Law Office if you get sued by a credit card collection agency. I called them and had an appointment by phone, the next day. Within 3 weeks my case was settled and I had a affordable payment plan to settle my debt. Best part of all, I never stepped foot in a court. Thank you Santos Law Offices!!
