Personal Service Throughout The Immigration Process
Individuals choose to immigrate to the United States for numerous reasons. Whether you are seeking to reunite your family, seeking a new job opportunity or seeking an American education, we encourage you to discuss your situation with an attorney.
We are ready to help you in situations such as:
Work-based visas: Numerous visas exist for nearly every situation. Visas are available for people with extraordinary abilities (O-1 visas) such as artists, athletes or scientists; for those seeking to invest in a U.S. company (E-2 or EB-5 visas); for those seeking skilled employment (H-1B) or seasonal work (H-2B); or for religious workers seeking entry into the U.S. (R visas). No matter your situation, we encourage you to contact our office to learn more about the legal process and the options available to you.
Family-based visas: Much like business immigration, the United States government has designed visas and procedures for nearly every familial situation that could arise. These visas are often complex, requiring numerous documents and several sets of paperwork to be filled out and filed on time. Our firm can help with visas that permit a U.S. citizen to sponsor a fiancé (K1 visa) or a spouse while a green card is being processed (K3 visa); or immediate relatives such as parents or unmarried children under the age of 21 (IR visas). In addition, the United States allows family members to come to the country based on certain preference categories. The number of preference visas is limited each year, so it is important to discuss your situation with a lawyer as soon as possible.
If you are seeking protection in the United States because you fear persecution in your country, you can apply for asylum. Many people fear persecution because of their race, religion, nationality, political opinion or membership in a particular social group. We can help you fill out an application for asylum so you can begin a new life in the U.S.
Are You Facing Removal?
One of the more frightening aspects of immigration law is deportation – your removal from the United States. Deportation proceedings can be initiated in one of several different situations, including:
- If you entered the U.S. legally, but overstayed the specified length of time and you are now out of status
- If you entered the U.S. without a visa
- If you were denied an immigration application
It is important to remember that even if you have a green card, you can be deported due to a criminal conviction. A knowledgeable immigration attorney can defend your right to live and work in the United States.
