Family Preference Visa Categories
Although the processes look slightly different, it is possible to complete
the family preference visa process and obtain a
green card while in the United States or to undergo
consular processing while residing in another country. Under U.S. immigration law, family
members fall into four preference categories while waiting for a visa number:
First Preference - This category includes adult children over the age of 21 who are unmarried.
Second Preference - Individuals who are spouses of legal permanent residents, who are unmarried
children of legal permanent residents, or who are the sons and daughters
of legal permanent residents' children
Third Preference - This category includes sons and daughters of U.S. citizens who are married,
along with their children (under 18) and spouses.
Fourth Preference - This last category consists of siblings of adult U.S. citizens, along with
their children (under 18) and spouses.
