I-130 Immigrant Relative Petitions

It’s one of the most common immigration questions I get asked. What family members can be sponsored for a green card?

This easy-to-use I-130 family petitions graph answers that question.


If you are a U.S. citizen, you are entitled to immigrate all of your closest relatives.  Your spouse, your parents, your children, and your brothers and sisters.

If you are a lawful permanent resident, you have fewer options.  You can only immigrate your spouse and your children under the age of 21.
