Once you have petitioned for your relative and their visa becomes available, they can apply for their Lawful Permanent Residency. Lawful Permanent Residency can be granted by immigration officers in the United States or at the U.S. consulate in your family members home country.

Adjustment of Status in the United States

Available to immigrants who are already in the United States, who either, entered lawfully (with a visa) or who have an approvable family petition or Labor Certification filed on their behalf on or before April 30, 2001.
If your relative does not qualify for Adjustment of Status, they will have to travel to the consulate in their home country to gain their LPR status.
If your relative is currently inside the United States, or has been in the United States unlawfully in the past, they need to verify that they do not need a waiver before they travel to the U.S. consulate in their home country.
