Our Family-Based Immigration Process

Family-based immigration can be a lengthy and difficult process. Our experienced immigration lawyers in Omaha will guide you and your family through processes like status adjustments, permit applications, and more. While every case is different, we follow these basic steps with our clients:

  1. Speak with our Intake Specialist in English or Spanish via phone call, text, or email.
  2. Meet with your immigration attorney over the phone for a confidential consultation. This is the time to ask questions and get basic information about your case’s legal requirements.
  3. Hire Hightower Reff Law and pay the retainer.
  4. Complete and file necessary forms with the assistance of your Hightower Reff Law attorney.
  5. Wait for a decision on your application. For family-based immigration cases, this is often at least eight months.
  6. Apply for other major documents from U.S. agencies if approved. This includes legal certifications like a driver’s license or filing for U.S. citizenship.
  7. If your application is denied, ask your lawyers if you should file an appeal or motion to reconsider your case.
