- Immigrant Visa
Family members of U.S. citizens and U.S. permanent residents may be able to immigrate to the United States based on their family relationship. There are different categories of family-based immigration options, and depending on which category a person qualifies for, the time and circumstances of obtaining a visa will differ. At Robert Brown LLC, our experienced immigration lawyers will help you understand your options.
- Permanent Residence Status
Foreign nationals in the United States under non-immigrant visas can often be eligible for permanent residency ("green card") through adjustment of status, or AOS. In certain circumstances, adjustment of status permits a person already in the U.S. to obtain permanent status without having to depart the US and file at a U.S. consulate abroad.

- Removal Defense
If you or a member of your family is facing deportation, and you have received a notice to appear in court, you need an attorney who will do everything within the law to help you stay in the United States.

At the law firm of Robert Brown LLC, our immigration lawyers advise clients about the availability of asylum as an approach to resolving removal problems or avoiding return to the country of origin upon the expiration of a temporary visa. Asylum is available for individuals who are present in the U.S. either lawfully or unlawfully. The main issue is whether the applicant is unable to return to his or her own country on the basis or either past persecution or a well-founded fear of prosecution based on race, religion, nationality, political opinion or membership in a particular social group.
