Obtain A Family-Based Visa

Obtaining a visa to bring a family member into the United States or process a family member already in the United States is no easy task. The process involves extensive documentation, interviews and other steps. A small mistake at any point can send you back to the start or prevent the visa from being approved.

Why Hire A Lawyer To Assist With A Family Visa?

The benefit of hiring a lawyer to guide you through the process is that an experienced lawyer will be able to skillfully guide you through all the steps, avoiding pitfalls and overcoming any challenges that may arise along the way.

At the Santa Fe Springs law office of Robert F. Jacobs & Associates, PLC, we have been helping people throughout the Los Angeles area bring family members to the U.S. or process family here with family visas for more than 25 years. Whether you want to help your spouse, your children, your parents, your sibling, your fiancé(e) or another family member, we can provide guidance.

Applying For A Visa

The first step, of course, is to determine the appropriate visa to apply for. We help with:

  • Deferred Action for Childhood Arrivals
  • Immediate relative visas
  • Family preference visas
  • Fiancé(e) and spouse visas (K visas)

We will determine the appropriate family visa type and prepare the application. We will work with you to collect all necessary documentation and also prepare you for the visa interview. We will strive to make the process as stress-free and straightforward as possible for you and your family.

Certified Specialist In Immigration And Nationality Law

Our founder, attorney Robert F. Jacobs, is certified as a specialist in immigration and nationality law by the State Bar of California Board of Legal Specialization. You can be confident that we understand all aspects of family-based immigration law.

Was The Visa Application Rejected?

Perhaps you have already applied for a family visa but were rejected. Our experience means we can quickly identify the reason for the rejection and pursue a remedy. In some cases, this may be a simple matter of obtaining and including additional documentation. In others, a more complex remedy may be required, such as seeking to expunge or vacate a criminal conviction.

Furthermore, if you have a visa or lawful permanent residency and for some reason, it is in jeopardy of being taken away, we can find options to help you protect your immigration status.
