Family based Immigration is the oldest method to sponsor family members on permanent basis to the U.S. The U.S citizens can sponsor spouse, children, parents, brother, sister, married and unmarried sons and daughters, and adopted children. Permanent Residents of the U.S may sponsor spouse, children and unmarried adult sons and daughters. A special family situation may also qualify you for permanent residence.
