When it comes to family based green card applications, it is important to note that not all applications will be treated the same. That is because there are different priorities that the United States Citizenship and Immigration Services (USCIS) has set depending on what the relationship is between the petitioner (sponsor) and the beneficiary. USCIS also takes the location of where the beneficiary lives (inside the US or outside the US) into consideration. Immediate relatives of the sponsor, such as a spouse and unmarried children under the age of 21 usually have a faster time obtaining their green card. There is also no cap to the number of green cards that the US may provide immediate relative applicants.
Before starting the immigration process, it is advisable to seek legal guidance from an experienced and knowledgeable immigration attorney.
