International Student and Scholar Services (ISSS) advisors at the International Office focus on UT-sponsored, employment-based permanent residency petitions only; therefore, we do not provide advising services on the family-based route to permanent residency. Instead, we provide the below U.S. Citizenship and Immigration Services (USCIS) resources. We hope you will find them to be useful.
If the USCIS website does not sufficiently answer your questions or you need more in-depth guidance, you should seek the advice of an experienced, capable immigration attorney in the private sector.
