Living in the United States provides you with opportunities to build a career, establish a family and create the future you want. You may desire to share these opportunities with your family members who remain in your home country.

In conjunction with following immigration protocols, you may wonder how else you can prepare your loved ones. Here are some suggestions of ways you can facilitate a successful move overseas.

Encourage study efforts

You can directly facilitate the immigration process for your loved ones. This requires you to access the applicable paperwork and coordinate with your loved ones to obtain all of the required information. According to the U.S. Citizen and Immigration Services, the type of application you complete may vary depending on your immigration status and the familial relationships of those you want to bring to the U.S.

Once your loved ones arrive in the United States, they may wish to continue the naturalization process to work toward citizenship. Bearing this in mind, encourage your loved ones to study critical information about the U.S. and its history. The naturalization test also includes an English portion. You can point your loved ones in the direction of resources that can help them learn more about the language.

Encourage organization of affairs

A move overseas often requires a lot of preparation. Encourage your loved ones to organize their affairs. This may include selling property, collecting and organizing financial documents, and settling other affairs. Their effort to address these responsibilities before moving may make the process smoother and less stressful.

Family immigration may improve the support and comfort that everyone in your circle feels. With everyone working toward the same goals, your family may experience more opportunities than ever before.
