Petitioning for Family-Based Visas

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. These are visas for immediate family members, including:

  • 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. Our attorneys can go over your options to help you with petitioning your family members so they can immigrate as easily and quickly as possible.

  • THANK YOU doesn't quite cover it. - Exceptional, trustworthy ...

    “Result: DACA and employment authorization granted First let me start by saying THANK YOU doesn't quite cover it. Robert is an exceptional attorney! He pays attention to the details. We received no further request for evidence, & it was all over in 2 months. He made us feel very comfortable with the entire process and I was not as intimidated, as I had been in the past with other lawyers that I had worked with. He was always responsive by email or phone and kept us well-informed. Which helped manage any anxiety we might have otherwise had. For the first time in my 26 years in this country I have some normality to my life! With DACA secured, next I look forward to working with Robert on our marriage case and becoming a permanent resident! I know I can trust Robert to guide us through whatever is needed. I highly recommend Robert Milla to any one seeking an immigration attorney. I plan on passing his name along to any family, or friends who may need his services in the future! Thank you Robert!”

  • Highly recommend

    “I highly recommend Robert Milla. I was recommended to Mr. Milla by a friend of mine who used him for her permanent residency application as well. Both my husband were touched by the fact that Robert took the time to get to know us during our first meeting with him, before we began the application process. Throughout the process, Robert was very helpful answering any questions we had and educating us on our legal rights. I was a nervous wreck on the day of my permanent residency interview, and Robert put all my fears at ease by assuring me that I had absolutely nothing to worry about. Rest assured, Robert will be my choice as I go to apply for my citizenship in the next few years! Result: Application for adjustment of status to permanent resident (“green card”) approved”

  • Robert, he was calm, supportive and had a lot of knowledge ...

    “My husband applied for my green card and we prepared the documents on our own, but unfortunately I got an RFE for the same documents which we had already submitted. So we thought of hiring a good lawyer for our case, I called up a few lawyers and explained them my case to get 1 free initial consultation, out of the ones we called, I really liked Robert, he was calm, supportive and had a lot of knowledge on such cases. I quickly decided that I would go with him for my case. We met him the next day and discussed our case in detail, soon after we got a list of documents that were needed by his office, we promptly replied, he prepared our case again , we had dew meetings in between and finally my case was approved, He also helped a lot with our interview preparation and also came with us to the interview venue , where he spent more than 2 hours with us explaining the process, he also appeared with us in the interview and was a great support. I finally cleared the interview under his expert guidance. I would definitely recommend him to my friends.”

  • 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 : )”

  • Robert has been absolutely amazing!

    “Robert has been absolutely amazing! My husband and I used his services for our marriage based green card application. Our case was not complicated, but we are so happy we hired Robert. He was nothing but helpful and would always make time to schedule a meeting with us or jump on the phone to guide us through the process and answer our (many) questions. On top of him being friendly and approachable, he knows the immigration law inside out. We can not recommend Robert enough to anyone applying for a marriage based permanent residence.”

  • Knowledgeable and confident

    “Robert worked on my case that was hopeless to be solved for the past 8 years, spending a huge amount of money with other lawyers. Robert said it from the beginning and told me what would it take to get this done. Despite my doubts, Robert stayed consistent with his answers and confident with the outcomes. Finally, I got an approval letter from USCIS for my wife. Thank you Robert for everything you have done for me!”

  • Successful case for marriage-based green card

    “Milla & Associates delivers an incredible quality of legal representation and it was an absolute pleasure to work with Robert Milla, Tatiana Alonso, and their team. My husband and I entrusted them with my adjustment of status and green card application. Our case was handled very efficiently, they answered our questions at every stage and kept us informed of the next steps and developments throughout the process. Not only that, Robert is highly experienced and has an incredible understanding of immigration law on top of being genuine, personable and transparent. It is really hard to be able to find a good attorney that genuinely cares about the case, he is trustworthy, and I can tell that he does his work with his heart. My adjustment of status/green card was approved within a week from the interview, and I received my conditional green card in the mail a few days after receiving the approval notice. Robert and his team definitely made the entire process seamless. I would strongly recommend Robert Milla for anyone who is looking for a great immigration attorney and to be put in the best position possible with obtaining a green card. Thank you, Robert, for making my husband and I feel at ease as we navigated through uncharted waters. We are so grateful for you!”

    “Words just cannot express how grateful I'm to Robert Milla for all his efforts and dedication towards my case. It was a very complicated case and I had consulted a lot of attorneys in Chicago who were just not that confident in proceeding with my case. Then I met Robert and his knowledge and determination showed me light when I was almost about to give up. He was confident and Knowledgeable and did a meticulous job with my case especially when ​I had very less time to apply. I'm so relieved and happy that I got my green card within a week of the interview. Mr Robert is an amazing, humble and extremely knowledgeable attorney. He gives a lot of attention to detail. I'll never forget that he helped me when I was most in need of help. It was easy to work with ​Robert and legal assistant Maria. They made the process very smooth and kept me informed throughout the process.​ ​I couldn't have asked for a more knowledgeable, friendly, and courteous attorney.​ ​I appreciate His genuineness and humbleness. I highly recommend him for all immigration needs and I will definitely use your services again in future.”
