U.S. citizens may petition the following types of family members for a green card sponsorship:

  • Unmarried minor children and unmarried sons or daughters over 21 years of age
  • Married daughters or sons, regardless of age
  • Spouses
  • Siblings and parents

What Is a Temporary Fiancé Visa?

Also known as the K-1 visa, a temporary fiancé visa may be issued for the purpose of marriage. After the official marriage, the noncitizen partner may apply for permanent residence. Individuals who wish to apply for a temporary fiancé visa should know that there are certain guidelines and stipulations, including documentation for dates on which couples met. These terms are best followed with a Texas attorney’s assistance.
