Family Based Immigration


**UPDATE: USCIS has been waiving interview requirements for family-based immigration cases including marriage-based green cards based on strong, well-prepared petitions, compelling evidence of relationship, and no underlying issues.**


There are many reasons to pursue permanent residence or United States citizenship – life ambitions, marriage, career opportunities – and every case is different.  FordMurray offers a complete roster of personal immigration services to help individuals and families down a path toward permanent residence (“Green Card”) and/or United States citizenship.

Our personal immigration team is led by Senior Counsel Aga Asbury. An immigrant from Poland, Aga can relate to the challenges facing people who want to immigrate to the United States. Aga went through the entire immigration process herself, from first applying for an exchange visitor visa at the US Embassy, through changing her status to an F-1 student and later being sponsored for permanent residence based on her marriage to a US citizen, to finally becoming a naturalized U.S. citizen in 2015. Aga’s immigration background gives her an empathetic perspective as she helps others navigate the complex immigration system. Read more about our expert team on our Testimonials page.

Flat Fee Family Immigration Services

We are happy to offer flat fee billing for family-based green card petitions. With our convenient flat fee system, you will know the total costs at the beginning of the process and will never be surprised with hidden or unanticipated costs, so you can budget accordingly. For your convenience, we accept most major credit cards.

Sponsoring Family Members as a Citizen or Green Card Holder

U.S. Citizens and Lawful Permanent Residents (Green Card holders) can sponsor certain family members to obtain their green cards and move to the U.S. permanently using the Form I-130. U.S. Citizens can petition for spouses, children, parents and siblings. Green Card holders may only sponsor spouses and unmarried children.
