Family-based Immigration

Sumner Law proudly provides special care for those seeking family-based visas and petitions. The decision to bring family members to the U.S. or to sponsor a family member who is deciding to stay in the U.S. long-term can be stressful, with concerns about financing, housing, finding employment, and adjusting to a new life in the U.S. You may be unsure of the options available for your family member, what documentation is required, how long the process will take, and how much the process will cost. The Sumner Immigration Law team helps start their journey with confidence, laying out a roadmap of the process, and guiding them and you through each step along the way. We offer immigration services for families in all sorts of situations, including the following:

  • Filing for family members already in the U.S.
  • I-751 Removal of Conditions for Conditional Residents
  • Filing for family members currently living outside the U.S.
  • Filing for fiancés (K-1)
  • Immigrant consular processing
  • K-3 visas for spouses of US citizens (when appropriate)

Consular Processing

Sumner Immigration Law offers a variety of consular processing services, including representation in applying for visas at U.S. consulates abroad, follow up and intervention when an applicant faces inordinate delay or unjust denial, and other services.
