Global Allianz Immigration consultants will prepare and file all the required forms and documents for I-824 follow to join.
In order to qualify to follow-to-join, the following criteria must be met:-
1. The foreign family member must be a spouse or unmarried child (under the age of 21) of the U.S. Green Card holder.
2. If the foreign family member is a spouse, the marriage must have occurred before the Primary Applicant became a Lawful Permanent Resident.
3. If the foreign family member is a child, he or she must have been born before the Primary Applicant became a Lawful Permanent Resident.
Please note that no individuals who married a Lawful Permanent Resident after he or she obtained a Green Card qualify to follow-to-join, or do children who were born after their parent became a Lawful Permanent Resident.
Generally, consulates require that Form I-824 be filed as a first step. In many cases, the approved Form I-824 is forwarded to the National Visa Center (NVC), which will contact the foreign family members with instructions on applying for the Immigrant Visa. In some situations, it may be possible to start the application process before the Form I-824 is approved.
