Family Visa Petitions

Because family reunification is the dominant principle under current USA immigration system, the most common method used to obtain lawful permanent residency is through family – sponsored immigration. Each year thousands of family members immigrate to the United States based on petitions filed by family members. There are two groups of family based immigrant visa categories- immediate relatives and family preference categories.The process begins with filing a document with the United States Citizenship and Immigration Services, a part of the United States Department of Homeland Security, called a Petition for Alien Relative (Form I-130), which is also called a visa petition. The family member filing this document is known as the petitioner and the foreign person who wishes to immigrate to the United States is the beneficiary.

My experience with Paul Marinov handling my immigration case was excellent . I hired Mr. Marinov twice once representing me and second time representing my father. He succeed in both cases and we as a family felt well represented .Mr. Marinov was very professional and knowledgeable. I highly recommend him as an immigration attorney. Thank you Mr. Marinov.

Fiancee Visas

U.S. citizens who wish to bring their fiancées to the United States to get married can do that by filing a Petition for Alien Fiancée (Form I-129F) with USCIS. Upon approval of the fiancée petition, the process is finalized at a U.S. embassy or consulate that has jurisdiction over the residence of the fiancée. Upon issuance of the fiancée visa, the fiancée can enter the United States for 90 days in which period the marriage ceremony must take place. After getting married, the fiancée can file an application for adjustment of status to apply for permanent residence and remain in the United States while the application for a green card is processed. If the fiancée has children who are under the age of 21 and unmarried, they may be included on the petition and they will receive K-2 status allowing them to enter the United States with their parent.
