Family Based Petitions

Discover how Filip Kobylecki Law, PLC can assist with your family based immigration process.

What is the I-130, Petition for a Relative

The first step in any family based immigration process is the filing of the Form I-130, Petition for Alien Relative. The form is used to petition for the immigration of a spouse, child, or parent. It can be completed by a lawful permanent resident or U.S. citizen and is required in order to file a Form I-485 or DS-260 to obtain a green card for your relative. 

The I-130 requires a petitioner (U.S. citizen or lawful permanent resident) to prove their relationship to a qualified beneficiary. This can be done by presenting evidence such as marriage certificates, birth certificates, photos, and other supporting documentation to demonstrate that a bona fide spousal, parent-child, or sibling relationship exists between the petitioner and the beneficiary (intending immigrant). 

The I-130 petition, once filed, does not grant any immigration status to the beneficiary. However, in certain cases the I-130 petition can be filed together with an application for adjustment of status (I-485), ensuring that the intending immigrant has lawful stay in the United States.
