Immigrating through a family member is the most common way to immigrate to the United States, and statistically the one through which most Immigrant Visas are issued by the U.S. government.

The marriage route is usually the easiest path to immigration, including marriage to a green card holder, as well as the fiancé route. More often than not, the spouses will have to go through the process of removal of conditions once the initial 2 year green card is granted in order to obtain the permanent residence. Also, noteworthy is the immigration through another relative than a spouse, such as a parent, son or daughter, or sibling.
