Family Based Immigration
The are two types of family based immigrant visa categories, including immediate relatives and family preference categories, which are provided under the provisions of United States immigration law, specifically the Immigration and Nationality Act (INA).
- Immediate Relative Immigrant Visas (Unlimited): These visa types are based on a close family relationship with a United States (U.S.) citizen described as an Immediate Relative (IR). The number of immigrants in these categories is not limited each fiscal year.
- Family Preference Immigrant Visas (Limited): These visa types are for specific but more distant family relationships with a U.S. citizen and some specified relationships with a Lawful Permanent Resident (LPR). There are fiscal year numerical limitations on family preference immigrants.

Immigration lawyer Bert M. Vega regularly defends clients before the San Francisco Immigration Court, including both respondents at the non-detained location (120 Montgomery Street, 8th Floor, San Francisco CA 94104), and at the detained location (630 Sansome Street, 4th Floor, San Francisco CA 94111). Most of the clients that attorney Bert M. Vega represents in removal proceedings found themselves involved in these proceedings for one of two reasons: Either they had a criminal conviction or arrest, or they were denied an immigration application they submitted without the legal guidance of an experienced Immigration attorney.

Chapter 7 bankruptcy is a way to help people and businesses who owe more than they can pay their creditors. There are several kinds of bankruptcy, including Chapter 11, and Chapter 13 that allows folks that are faced with bankruptcy to work out a plan to repay the money over time. In Chapter 7 bankruptcy most of their bills "go away." In other words, the debtor is no longer required by law to pay any debts that are discharged under a Chapter 7 bankruptcy.
Chapter 11 bankruptcy is a "reorganization" and is primarily for businesses, large or small,including corporations, partnerships, or individuals with large debts and assets who do not meet the asset-debt limitations of Chapter 13 bankruptcy. Chapter 11 provides flexibility and options, more so than other bankruptcy chapters, and can be most helpful in lower debt cases.
Chapter 13 bankruptcy is mostly used by debtors who want to keep their secured assets, such as a home or car, when they have more equity in the secured assets than they can protect with their California bankruptcy exemptions. Chapter 13 bankruptcy is a reorganization whereas Chapter 7 bankruptcy is a liquidation.
