- Family Based Immigration
Our lawyers have extensive experience helping individuals pursue and obtain permanent residency status for immediate relatives. Green cards can be obtained for family members through family visas. Our legal team has extensive experience with family visas. Our law practice has handled cases involving: sibling visas. In order to bring your sibling (brother or sister) to live in the United States as a permanent resident (green card holder), you must be a U.S. citizen and over 21 years of age; and parent visas. To bring your parents (mother or father) to live in the United States as a permanent resident (green card holder), you must be a U.S. citizen and at least 21 years old. Additionally, we have helped countless individuals obtain visas for fiancés and spouses.
- Employment Immigration Visas
Our attorneys understand the substantial financial issues associated with employment-based and investment-based immigration. Your ability to get and keep a job in the U.S. as an immigrant worker directly impacts your well-being. As a business owner or investor, your ability to hire and retain appropriate employees, especially individuals with special skill sets, can affect the success of your business. We are committed to guiding you through the complex immigration process.
- Student and Exchange Visas
The United States welcomes thousands of foreign students and exchange visitors every year. If you wish to pursue full-time academic or vocational studies in the United States, you may be eligible for one of two nonimmigrant student categories: F Visa - Academic student visa and M Visa - Vocational student visa. In addition to F1 or M1 student visas, if you wish to participate in an exchange program, you may be eligible for the "J" category for exchange visitors. The J visa is for educational and cultural exchange programs designated by the Department of State, Bureau of Consular Affairs.
- Trainee Visas
The H-3 nonimmigrant visa category is for an alien coming temporarily to the United States as a trainee or special education visitor. This category is for either: trainees coming to the U.S. to receive training, other than graduate or medical education training, that is not available in the alien's home country; or special education exchange visitors coming to the U.S. to participate in a special education exchange visitor training program for children with physical, mental or emotional disabilities.
- Temporary Visitor Visas
Temporary business visitors and their spouses may be eligible for temporary visas. You may qualify for the B-1 business visa if you will be participating in business activities of a commercial or professional nature in the U.S., including, but not limited to: consulting with business associates; traveling for a scientific, educational, professional or business convention or a conference on specific dates; settling an estate; negotiating a contract; participating in short-term training; transiting through the United States: Certain persons may transit the United States with a B-1 visa; and deadheading: Certain air crewmen may enter the United States as deadhead crew with a B-1 visa. Under U.S. immigration law, the P visa category applies to foreign-based athletes and entertainment groups.
- Naturalization and Citizenship
Naturalization is the process by which U.S. citizenship is granted to a foreign citizen or national after he or she fulfills the requirements established by Congress in the Immigration and Nationality Act (INA). In most cases, an applicant for naturalization must be a permanent resident (green card holder) before filing. Except for certain U.S. military members and their dependents, naturalization can only be granted in the United States. Our lawyers have extensive experience helping individuals obtain citizenship through the naturalization process. We understand the complicated naturalization eligibility requirements.
- Deportation and Removal Defense
If you are an immigrant in the U.S. and have been arrested for any reason, your criminal charges and other criminal matters can affect your immigration case. We strongly encourage you to consult with an immigration attorney before making statements or pleadings. Our law firm has experience assisting clients facing criminal charges, including: DUI, domestic violence, assault and petty theft. Even if deportation is not discussed at the time of a criminal arrest, the possibility that you might be deported or lose future opportunities as a U.S. resident must be considered. Notably, the outcome of a criminal case can make visa renewal, permanent residency and citizenship impossible to obtain at a later time.
- Waiver of Inadmissibility
When you apply for a green card, the United States Citizenship and Immigration Services (USCIS – formerly the Immigration and Naturalization Service, or INS) conducts a background check. The immigration laws deny individuals the ability to become permanent residents — obtain green cards — for a wide variety of reasons. Our attorneys have extensive experience handling cases in which clients have been denied green cards. When the USCIS denies your green card, you must submit a waiver and have it approved to overcome your basis for inadmissibility. Getting a waiver of inadmissibility is complicated. Our attorneys devote substantial time and talent to forming effective written waiver arguments. We understand the strict guidelines and rules attached to the various waivers available under the law. We will evaluate your situation from every angle to determine the appropriate waiver.
Depending on your situation, you may be eligible to file for asylum and remain in the United States permanently. Our lawyers understand the legal process for obtaining asylum. We can help guide you through the process. The first step is filing an affirmative asylum petition with the U.S. Citizenship and Immigration Services (USCIS – formerly the Immigration and Naturalization Service, or INS). If you find yourself in deportation or removal proceedings, a Withholding of Removal and Convention Against Torture (CAT) must be filed and argued in front of an immigration judge. Asylum cases can be extremely difficult to prove. Our legal team has the knowledge and determination to help you achieve your immigration objectives.
- Immigrant Victims of Domestic Violence
The Violence Against Women Act (VAWA) is an immigration law that protects men, women and children who are subjected to domestic violence. Our immigration lawyers understand this act and how it may apply to your situation. If you came to the United States to marry a U.S. citizen or lawful permanent resident (green card holder) and then he or she became either physically or psychologically abusive, you may be eligible to self-petition for a green card on your own. If eligible, you would not be dependent on your abuser's cooperation with your own green card application process. Do not let emotions jeopardize your immigration goals. Our legal team can evaluate your situation from every angle to determine the best course of action.
