Are You a U.S. Citizen? You Can Petition for Family.

If you are currently a citizen of the United States, you have the option to petition for a visa for certain family members, based on your relationship to them and the type of visa your family member is seeking. Petitions for Immediate Relative Immigrant Visas are given the highest priority.

Visas for immediate family members, include:

  • Spouses
  • Parents
  • Siblings
  • Unmarried children under 21 years of age

Immediate relatives generally have no waiting time for immigration. The visa processing time for other family members can vary depending on your unique circumstances.

  • Great job guys!!!

    “My husband and I hired Robert to handle our marriage based residency case. We met with several attorneys. Robert was our last one. He was very patient and answered all of our questions. We didn't feel rushed at all. After we walked out of the consultation my husband and I looked at each and knew Robert was the one. This process can be complicated, but Robert and his team made it very simple. His legal assistant, Daniel, was a pleasure to work with. They were both very responsive, which is important in dealing with these matters. He prepared us for our final interview and everything turned out great! No problems, no issues. Great job guys!!!”

  • The Best Lawyer Ever!

    “I had problems bringing my wife back to US. Couple different lawyers promised to help but just wasted my money and time. Robert Milla told me upfront what we need to do and finally my wife is back. The Best Lawyer Ever! Result: Hardship waiver application approved (misrepresentation) and immigrant visa granted for permanent resident status (“green card”)”

  • As of today I am a proud and happy American citizen

    “After 4 years of anguish of what will happen with my case I almost had given up. I kept thinking I had ruined it for my kids and we might have to go back. I met Robert when I was almost burned out from all the worries. It felt like meeting an old friend and we had a talk and went through options. He leaves the big words when he works to get the case done, not to show you that he is a great lawyer. But if you trust your heart you will see that you just got lucky stumbling on him. No false promises, I knew all the time where my case was standing and the risks I could face. He thinks ahead and covers all the gaps to get the case done. Later I learned that he actually teaches immigration classes as well but even when he is busy he gets right back to you answering your questions and giving updates. I am very happy I had Robert by my side in my most difficult time and will always keep wishing him well. Thank you Robert you will always have a fond place in our hearts : )”

  • Thank you so much

    “I thank God for put Robert on my way. I had a complicated VAWA case due to domestic violence (DV), I had others immigration attorneys opinions where they did not give me much hopes because my short marriage. I got Robert's information from a DV organization, got a free consultation and with not doubt I hired him. He is an excellent attorney, knows what he is doing and how to put your case on the right path. As I mentioned my case was complicated and with God's help, Robert's made it easier. My DV case was approved with no inconvenience and got my interview 6 months after my approval, he prepared me one week before my interview and got me ready for the best and the worst scenario. Thank God in my interview I got approved on the spot and after a week I got my green card. Another important thing is that he is affordable, he has a huge heart and always answered my questions when I had any. I also want to thank his receptionist Sylvia, she was so kind and assisted me during my process after my assistant Maria was gone. If you need an attorney with experience, very reasonable price but with quality and compassion then Robert is the one you need.”

  • Very satisfied and grateful!

    “I am glad i went to Milla & Associates, I worked with Justin Hoefflicker to get my H1B he was very helpful, Justin explained everything in terms i could understand, he gave me options, where i thought i had none, Finally, I got an approval letter from USCIS for my H1B Visa, i'm very satisfied and grateful.”

  • Very satisfied, i have other petitions too, the fight is not ...

    “At first i was curious of what Lawyers (in general) do to make their income and i wasn't impressed until i see the result, that is just being me (Marine Vet). I learned that he is half Filipino, but that didn't change my opinion about lawyers even if he is a son of a fellow Marine Vet. With his high caliber of knowledge in/on immigration law, he walks and talks with the mission on his every foot steps. I highly recommend him to every Filipino and Military Veterans. I have been petitioning my other siblings ever since my father passed away and i will have to call him again to save my day to bring my family here in USA just like what my father wants.”

  • The best legal group I've ever had the pleasure of working with in my life.

    “Justin Hoefflicker and his team went above and beyond to help us every step of the way. We are a small digital health startup, and without Justin, our company would potentially not be able to continue operations. He helped us secure an H1B visa for our Technical Co-Founder, and went above and beyond through preparation of materials, explaining the process, answering a million follow-up questions (that's an understatement), taking the time to meet and discuss contingencies when he absolutely didn't have to, helping us file a complete Request-for-Evidence (RFE) and not charging us for the additional work, and ultimately, helping us secure the H1B in the end. Even if we hadn't gotten the H1B, I'd still be submitting this review as it's fully merited and Milla & Associates is by far the best legal group I've ever worked with. They're honest, they actually care, they do great legal work at appropriate rates, they actually follow through, they get everything done on time, and they go above and beyond to make sure expectations are set correctly in what can be a very difficult and touchy legal-sphere (immigration). I am extremely grateful for having had the opportunity to work with them, and I wish we had a similar experience with every legal group we had to work with. Thank you Justin and team.”
