There are various family relationships that might qualify you for immigration benefits that are classified in different "priorities" or "preferences," primarily dependent on the "closeness" of the family relationship.

Therefore, US citizen's spouse and parents have the highest urgencies and are exempt from visa quotas, while all other family relationships are assigned annual numeric quotas.

So, it is important you let us know what family relationship you are relying on for US immigration benefits.  Please include a detailed description of your case, including the nature of your case type, such as the exact family relationship between the petitioner and the beneficiary. 

Please provide us with as much information as possible regarding your case or questions, especially the actual family relationship between the petitioner and the beneficiary and, if you have a pending case with a receipt number, please also provide it.  If you have a challenge from the USCIS either in form of a "Request for Evidence" (RFE) or "Intent to Deny" (ITD) or "Intent to Revoke" (ITR), please provide us either a copy of that challenge through email or fax (972-994-0088) so that we have a better understanding of the problems at issue.

You can email your inquiry to This email address is being protected from spambots.
