The I-130 petition, or “Petition for Alien Relative,” is a common form processed by United States Citizenship and Immigration Services (USCIS). Using this form, a U.S. citizen or permanent resident can establish the relationship to certain alien relatives who wish to immigrate to the United States.
Citizens or Permanent Residents of the United States may help a relative become a lawful permanent resident of the United States by obtaining what is often referred to as a “Green Card.” To do so, the citizen or permanent resident would need to sponsor a relative and be able to prove that he/she has enough income or assets to support his or her relative(s) when they come to the United States.
This process begins with filing the I-130 petition. For assistance with filing an I-130 petition, contact one of our Tulsa immigration lawyers at (918) 216-9644 or online via our contact form.
