As a New Jersey Immigration Attorney, I am often asked once someone gains their Green Card if they can sponsor their parents.
- You must become a U.S. Citizen in order to sponsor your parents. As a Green Card holder you can sponsor your spouse, minor children, or unmarried adult children.
- It can take a year and a half to sponsor a spouse, and over seven years for unmarried adult children.
- You will be able to file for U.S. citizenship once you have had your Green Card for five years.
Do you want to sponsor your immigrant parents if you became a Green Card Holder. Contact our experienced New Jersey Immigration Attorney to guide you.
