FORM I-130

Form I-130 is the key form that starts the family-based green card process, and sets the tone for the entire journey.

An applicant’s eligibility for a family-based green card has three pillars.


Proving that the sponsor is a U.S. citizen or a green card holder.


Proving that the applicant’s circumstances (age and marital status) fit a green card category.


Proving that the family relationship was established in a way that meets U.S. immigration agencies criteria.


Most applicants and sponsors are not familiar with the logic, language, and labels used by U.S. immigration agencies. The I-130 form itself is 12 pages long and contains more than 400 items.
