At Kasturi Law, LLC, our Naperville immigration and nationality law attorney provides our clients with invaluable legal guidance when handling complex family sponsorship cases that involve bringing a family member to the U.S. for reunification, typically through processes like family-based immigration visas or petitions.

What sets these complex cases apart from more straightforward immigration sponsorships are factors that complicate the process or present unique challenges. Here, we discuss some of the most common examples of complex cases and how our skilled Illinois immigration attorney can help.

Immigration Attorneys Help with Complex Family Sponsorship Cases

What are the Most Common Examples of Complex Family Sponsorship Cases?

Working with an experienced immigration attorney can help navigate the complexities of family sponsorship and increase the chances of a successful outcome.

That includes sponsorships involving:

  • Adopted Children

Bringing an adopted child to the U.S. can involve navigating both immigration laws and adoption laws, especially if the adoption takes place internationally. Ensuring that the home and host countries recognize the adoption and meet immigration requirements can be complex.

  • Stepchildren or Blended Families

Sponsoring stepchildren or children from a previous relationship can be complex, mainly if there are custody issues, consent requirements from the non-custodial parent, or if the child is older and does not meet the definition of a child for immigration purposes.

  • Family Members with Medical or Special Needs

Sponsoring family members with medical conditions or special needs may require additional documentation to demonstrate that adequate care will be provided and that the sponsor can financially support the family member’s needs.

  • Criminal History or Inadmissibility Issues

If the sponsor or the sponsored family member has a criminal history or other factors that render them inadmissible to the country, obtaining waivers or addressing these issues can complicate the sponsorship process.

  • Long Separations or Prior Immigration Violations

Families who have been separated for extended periods or have previously violated immigration laws may face additional scrutiny or challenges in proving the legitimacy of their relationship and eligibility for sponsorship.

How Can an Experienced Immigration Attorney Help with My Complex Sponsorship Case?

At Kasturi Law, our Illinois immigration attorney will assess whether you or your family member qualify for family sponsorship under the current laws, and evaluate factors like the relationship between the sponsor and the beneficiary, the sponsor’s immigration status, and any potential grounds of inadmissibility so that we can build a solid case around any possible challenges.

Once we understand the details of your complex sponsorship needs, we will:

  • Prepare and File the Necessary Documentation

Family sponsorship cases often require extensive documentation, including forms, affidavits, and supporting evidence. Our skilled immigration attorney in Illinois will help gather and organize the necessary documents, ensure they are completed accurately, and submit them to the appropriate authorities on time.

  • Address the Complexities and Challenges

Family situations, prior immigration violations, criminal records, or other factors can complicate sponsorship cases, but once they are identified, we will develop strategies to address them effectively.

  • Communication and Representation

An attorney can communicate with immigration authorities, representing your interests and advocating for a favorable outcome, including standing side-by-side with you at hearings or interviews that may be required as part of the sponsorship process.

  • Appeals and Litigation

If your sponsorship case is denied or faces obstacles, an immigration attorney can assist with appeals and, if necessary, litigation to challenge the decision or seek alternative legal remedies.
