If you are a United States citizen, you can petition your parents to come to the U.S. on a parent visa. The parental immigration process is complex, because “parent” is not defined under U.S. immigration law, so establishing the relationship depends on meeting the existing definition of “child”. For fathers of children born out of wedlock, it is also necessary to show that there was an ongoing parent/child relationship before the child reached 21. Parents may also be able to seek a parent visa through their stepchild.

If you are seeking a parent visa, our law firm can explain the legal requirements and steps involved. This involves filing a petition and gaining approval with the USCIS. Then, if your parent lives outside of the U.S., he or she will be required to go to the U.S. consulate in that country to complete the process.
