Visa Information for Immigrants

immigration lawyers

Foreign citizens wishing to immigrate and live permanently in the U.S. must comply with U.S. visa immigration law, and specific procedures to apply for your visa. An Affidavit of Support form is required for most family-based and some employment based immigrants to show there is adequate means of financial support in the U.S., by the petitioner or other sponsor(s) for the immigrant. Click on the links below for more information on forms to use, “how to” instructions for Affidavits of Support, genetic (DNA) testing and more. Based on law, not everyone will receive a visa to come to the U.S. See 'Ineligibilities and Waivers' below to learn more.
