3 Steps for a Successful Sibling Migration to the USA

Forrest Blount

1. Determine You & Your Sibling's Eligibility

Before researching government forms and rules, completing your application, and searching for the right immigration lawyer, make sure that you're eligible to apply for your sibling. If you're a Permanent Resident, you won't be eligible to apply and, even if you're a U.S. citizen, we recommend completing our eligibility report, which will take less than 5 minutes to complete and is completely free.

2. Complete Your I-130 & Gather Your Documents

Once you've confirmed that you are eligible to apply for your sibling's green card, the next step is completing the I-130 form. You can download the I-130 form and it's accompanying 7-page instructions from the USCIS website, or you can use our online application to complete the I-130 and organize the documents you'll submit to prove you and your sibling's eligibility. While our application is free for immigrants, we do require that you work with a lawyer or not-for-profit to file your application.

3. Get Quotes From Lawyers to Complete & Process Your Application

We partner with lawyers and not-for-profits to ensure that your application is completed quickly and error free, but we we've built our application from the ground up to get you a better price than lawyers can offer on their own. By completing your I-130 and uploading your documents, you'll get multiple lawyers to review your case and offer competitive quotes on your application. You'll get to choose your lawyer from our nationwide network based on not just their quotes, but also their years of experience and reviews from other immigrants. On top of all that, our own customer service team is available to help you at any point in the process -- in fact, we'd be happy to talk to you now if you have any questions -- our phone number is 855-539-7768!

Whatever you decide to do, we wish you the best of luck with your application!
