If you are a U.S citizen and have a parent or parents that are not, you might be looking to bring them over to live with you in the United States. This move could be for many reasons including greater proximity to family, better healthcare, or an increased standard of living.
The IR-5 visa allows the parent or parents of a U.S. citizen to lawfully live and work in the United States.
This is a multi-step process where the sponsoring child in the US and the parent (usually living outside the US) both complete forms, provide documents, and attend interviews. You will complete the simple questionnaires we provide and we will use your answers to complete the complicated government forms quickly and accurately, giving you the best possible chance to have your petition succeed. We will help you collect and submit the necessary documentation and government filing fees (not included), and provide you will materials to prepare for your interviews with USCIS.
With LawCaddy Immigration Attorneys reviewing your documents and guiding you, the difficult and confusing application process can become simple and stress-free.
*Government Fees are NOT Included in LAWCADDY Price
