Colorado Family-Based Immigration Attorney

Comprehensive counsel on family-based immigration issues
The Law Firm of Timothy R. Bakken explains the procedures and requirements that are involved with different forms of family-based immigration. In most cases, our clients are U.S. citizens or permanent residents who need to learn about the best ways to obtain U.S. entry or permanent residence for a relative — parent, spouse, fiancé or fiancée, son or daughter, brother or sister. We help you understand what to expect and what needs to be done. The firm serves family, individual and business clients nationwide and around the world. Our versatility and breadth of experience in U.S. immigration law represents a significant benefit for our clients.

Family-based immigration and visas

Much of our work for family clients involves achieving entry, maintenance of status, adjustment of status, change of status and finding the fastest and most effective ways to meet immediate or ongoing immigration objectives. Sometimes the fastest way requires additional work later on, such as when a noncitizen spouse enters the U.S. on a nonimmigrant K-3 visa. We give our clients clear explanations of all their options, so that the eventual choice is based on sound advice and clear judgment.

Examples of the kinds of family immigration situations we handle include:

  • Permanent residence (green card) for immediate relatives, including same-sex marriage petitions.
  • Entry and permanent residence for non-citizen spouses
  • Preference categories for family-based immigration visas
  • Nonimmigrant K-3 visas
  • Fiancé or fiancée visas
  • Adjustment of status
  • Consular processing
  • Family-based waivers of inadmissibility
  • Naturalization and citizenship
  • Removal defense

We explain each process carefully, so that you know just what to expect: length of time, priority dates, evidence and documentation requirements, visa bulletins, interview process, and the affidavits of support that must be completed for the non-citizen relative.

We provide honest and timely answers to your questions while giving you the information you need to make informed choices about your family.
