It’s important to remember that the immigration process can be slightly different for every person who hopes to live in the US. Let’s talk about your unique situation and how we can get you started with the right paperwork.
Immigration is part of most Americans' story. It may have happened a decade ago, or two or more centuries ago, but most of us have had family members that have been the beneficiaries of immigration laws at one time or another.
It’s important to remember that the US government gives priority to skilled workers in certain industries seeking work visas. If you’re not sure whether you’re qualified for one of these priority spots, we may be able to help you better evaluate your case.
If you have a green card and know in advance that you will be leaving the U.S. for more than a year, then it’s recommended you apply to the USCIS for a reentry permit, which allows you to stay abroad for up to 2 years and serves as an entry document for your return.
If someone you know has reentered the United States after having been deported (removed) and has been arrested for illegal reentry, they need legal help quickly. Facing the court system alone is foolish and the consequences can be severe.
Many people believe immigrants come to the United States to collect welfare or other handouts from the United States. In reality, this couldn’t be further from the truth, as immigrants come to the U.S. to be with their families and find consistent work.
Mistakes made in the early stages of filing an immigration petition can end up costing you in the long run, resulting in lost options, a visa denial, and even deportation consequences. We can help you through every stage of this complex process.
When working with immigration, regardless of what area, time is always a factor. Failing to meet specified deadlines can result in denial of visas, deportation, or other calamities. Experienced attorneys keep things moving to meet all deadlines.

An undocumented immigrant is someone who is in the U.S. illegally, however they do have the chance to earn immigration rights and gain legality. Consult an experienced immigration lawyer to help you through the process.
Although people stay in the US after their visas expire every day, this isn’t the best way to handle the situation. If you’re caught and deported, it can become nearly impossible to legally immigrate to the country again in the future.
Unfortunately, many applications for visas or citizenship are denied because they aren’t properly filled out. When you don’t want a technicality to stand in your way, we can help.
When you’re working and spending time with your family, the last thing you want to do is spend hours and hours poring over paperwork and agonizing over whether you got it right or not. One of the main things an immigration attorney does is to take care of all of this for you so you don’t have to worry.
Filling out the paperwork and providing the documentation for your citizenship application is your most important step. Let us help you ensure that all the paperwork has been completed correctly and accurately.
Work visas for America can embrace a wide range of situations including: persons in specialty occupations, temporary agricultural worker, temporary non-agricultural worker, trainee or special education visitor or intracompany transferee. An immigration lawyer can provide the best advice for your individual situation.
We understand that coming to a new country and learning its laws can feel overwhelming. Let us help ease your transition by taking the stress of these legal filings off your shoulders.
Timeliness is everything when it comes to the immigration process in the U.S. Be sure to file all paperwork well ahead of time, and don’t be late for any appointments with the USCIS, embassy/consulate, or immigration court.
H-1B visas allow employers to hire temporary, specialized workers to fill a vacancy. Workers on an H-1B visa are allowed to work in the U.S. for a maximum of six years, but only in increments of three years at a time.
If you or someone you know has received a Notice to Appear (NTA) from The Bureau of Customs and Immigration Enforcement, it will contain the reason(s) for deportation or removal. Do not face this hearing alone. We can provide expert legal help in this matter.
One concern that has made immigration harder for many is the quota system that has been instituted based on where the person comes from. It certainly has been challenged as unfair. A good immigration attorney can help you figure out how the quotas apply to your case.
It is imperative for an immigrant seeking legal status to begin the road to legal status properly and this begins with an immigration lawyer. An immigration lawyer provides services that are immeasurable in helping a potential citizen become a legal citizen.
Undocumented workers are usually looking for work to feed their families and homes and communities to provide a safer environment than that of their home country. Many immigrants come to the U.S. because their own country is incredibly dangerous.
Citizens of the United States have certain privileges that non-citizens don’t. First, they have the right to vote in national, state, and local elections. They can also get a U.S. passport and have the ability to sponsor relatives so they can become permanent residents, too.
Even though people think immigrants are contributing to overpopulation in the United States, it tends to be an incorrect assumption because the rate of immigrants coming into the U.S. relative to the population is low instead of high.
The Chinese Exclusion Act, passed in 1882, was a major restriction on immigration, barring all Chinese laborers from immigrating into the country. The act was not repealed until the US became allied with China during World War II.
When it comes to the level of difficulty associated with immigrating to the US, US immigration laws are considered by many to be a close second to tax law. If you aren’t sure which documents you need to complete, an immigration attorney can help clarify things.
Did you know that non-US spouses may not apply to be a US citizen immediately after receiving their permanent residence card? In most cases, they must wait three years.
While marrying someone from a foreign country to get them residency in the US may be simple in the movies, the reality can be much different. Bringing in an immigration attorney to get things moving right after your accept the proposal is a good idea.
