When a U.S. citizen or lawful resident of the U.S. wants to help relatives immigrate to the U.S., the form I-130 is used to declare and establish the relationship of the citizen with the immigrant. The form is also called the Petition for Alien Relative. You need to file a separate form for each relative wishing to apply for immigration/green card. Filing and approval of an I-130 is only the first step in helping a relative immigrate to the U.S.


  • Passport-style photos of your relative as per the specifications by U.S. immigration.
  • Photocopies of legal documents that prove your relationship. For spouse you need the marriage certificate. If either of you were married earlier, you also need proof of the earlier marriage being terminated (divorce documents). For parents/children, you need documentary evidence of the relationship.
  • Documentary proof of your U.S. citizenship or legal permanent status, if you are a green card holder.
  • If applying for a spouse, also fill the G-325a, which is a biographical data form. You need to fill this separately for you and your spouse, four forms each.
  • A cover letter stating the purpose of application and listing the table of contents, including the documents included in the package.
