BRONX NEW YORK
IMMEDIATE RELATIVES OF US CITIZEN
Many Bronx families, who are United States citizens, have Immediate Relatives outside of the United States. Immediate Relatives include children, spouses and parents of US citizens. If a Bronx US citizen wants to apply for a parent, he/she must be over 21. If the Bronx US citizen (USC) applies for a child, the child must be under 21 and unmarried. If the child is over 21, there may still be options! If the child is over 21 he/she is not an Immediate Relative of the US citizen, but would be eligible under the quota, namely under the first preference category for an over 21 year old child but unmarried; or for a married child over 21, then under the 3rd preference category, family based preference.
