Who Can File an I130?

Who Can Apply for an I130? As an immigration attorney myself, sometimes I get asked by clients exactly who can file an I130. I get asked all the time as to whom exactly needs to do the petition for one of their relatives. Well, here is the best answer I can provide.

A U.S. citizen or a legal permanent resident, “green card holder”, can petition for immigration benefits for relatives. Each has their own way that they can apply and their own restrictions. They are also different in other aspects discussed elsewhere on this website and in our YouTube videos.

U.S. citizens enjoy the widest options for whom they can petition for when filing an I130. They can petition for their spouse, a child who is under twenty-one years of age and who is not married, a child who is over the age of twenty-one and who is not married, a child of any age, their brothers and sisters, and their mothers and fathers. These are all subject to the possible criminal records and other restrictions the relative they petition for may possess.

Legal permanent residents can petition for a spouse an unmarried child under twenty-one and an unmarried child over twenty-one. Again, these are all subject to the possible criminal records and other restrictions the relative they petition for may possess.

Who can apply for an I130? We hope we answered your question and thank you for reading.

What is An I130?

What is an I130?

It is the family based petition for immigration purposes. This is used if you are trying to get a family member brought either from abroad or someone who was here in the United States, some sort of legal status in the United States.

The I130 does not establish anything other than the relationship between a U. S. Citizen or a legal permanent resident in their family member.

It does not convey any type of immigration benefit as far as any type of immigration status. All and I won 30 does. It merely establishes that you have a relationship identified under the Immigration and Naturalization Law that indicates your kinship with the person that you’re petitioning for. 

Generally, the petitioner is the person that is filling it out. That is, a family member that is either a U S citizen or a legal permanent resident or a green card holder is they’re often referred to. Those people are the ones that submit the I130 on behalf of a family member who is the beneficiary of the application. 

Immigration law in the United States is a difficult system to understand. I has many complex aspects. Here we hope to knock some of the confusion down and allow the public to better understand the system. From family based immigration, work visas, how to immigrate as a new spouse to a U.S. citizen, we aim to educate and inform about these processes.
