These applications can be extremely rewarding, but they are also very complex and time consuming and as a result, many of these applications are denied every year. In order for the best results with your spousal sponsorship case, speak to a licensed immigration lawyer or immigration attorney regarding your best options. For example, there are multiple ways to apply for spousal sponsorship and one of these ways may suit you best.

Ways of applying for spousal sponsorship in the United States

How you apply to immigrate to the United States as a US citizen spouse depends on where you are located: inside the United States or outside of the United States.

Those outside of the United States can apply via the United States consulate through the Consular process. The applicant will apply for permanent residency while at the same time their spouse will apply to sponsor them, and they will remain outside of the United States through the process.

If the spouse to be sponsored is still in the United States on temporary status such as a visitor visa, a student visa or a work permit, they can apply for an Adjustment of Status which will change their status to permanent resident while their US citizen spouse applies to sponsor them. They need to remain in the United States for the duration of their application.

Great law firm with great staff. My lawyer Rania did a great job for my Canadian work permit and my daughters study permit. You are great in your work. And my Para Legal officer Alicea, you are just amazing. They did not rest until my job was promptly and properly done. Always there to answer my calls, reply my emails promptly. She tried her best and the results were amazing. I recommend visa place if you need the best immigration job. Many thanks to Rania and Alicea.
