AN IMMIGRATION ATTORNEY CAN BE HELPFUL WITH ALL OF THE FOLLOWING IMMIGRATION ISSUES
GREEN CARD THROUGH FAMILY
We care about our clients and work hard to unite families by helping sponsor spouses, fiancés, children, parents and siblings.
We specialize in K-1 fiancé & K-3 spouse visas, marriage-based green cards, immediate-relative visas, family preference visas, adjustment of status and removal of conditions.
Most people obtain green cards by being sponsored by their relative (including their spouses) or through their employers.
A green card enables you to live and work in the United States for the rest of your life as long as you do not abandon your residence by staying outside the US for too long or engage in conduct which renders you subject to deportation.
EMPLOYMENT BASED IMMIGRATION
Our firm provides your business with the knowledge and experience it takes to help you obtain the best employees and keep them.
We specialize in H-1B, L-1A, L-1B and TN visas and sponsorship of employee's permanent residence in the United States.
BECOME A US CITIZEN
As your immigration law firm we help you achieve your goal of U.S. citizenship through the process of naturalization.
Most persons who are residing in the US are eligible adjust their status to permanent residence without leaving the U.S. However, if you have ever violated your lawful immigration status, you may be eligible to adjust your status only if you: (1) Are an “immediate relative” of a U.S. citizen (Parent, spouse or child); (2) Qualify for benefits under section 245(i) of the law and pay an appropriate fine; (3) Qualify under section 245(k)( of the law as an employment-based immigrant; or (4) Qualify under section 209 if you are an asylee or a refugee.
COMMON ISSUES THAT RESULT IN REMOVAL PROCEEDINGS
The most common problem that leads to removal proceedings are being arrested for driving without a license or being arrested for a DUI. Once arrested for the underlying charge, ICE may put a hold on you and initiate removal proceedings.
UNLAWFUL PRESENCE BARS & WAIVERS
Congress passed a law that bars certain persons who have accumulated a certain period of “unlawful presence” in the U.S. and then left the country from becoming US permanent residents for a period of time unless they first obtain a waiver.
Persons who have accumulated 180 days or more of unlawful presence after April 1, 1997, and have then left the country, cannot return to the U.S. for 3 years. Persons who have accumulated one year or more of unlawful presence after April 1, 1997, and have then left the country, cannot return to the U.S. for 10 years. Persons who illegally return to the U.S. without seeking a waiver must wait outside the U.S. for a period of 10 years before they can apply for a waiver. The same rule applies to persons who illegally reenter the U.S. after being deported.
A person can accumulate unlawful presence by (1) entering the U.S. without inspection; (2) by overstaying the expiration date on his I-94; or (3) by violating his status if he is notified by the government that he has done so.
Persons who commit fraud or a material misrepresentation are barred from the U.S. for life unless they obtain a waiver.
A waiver may be obtained by submitting FormI-60 to the USCIS and demonstrating that the person’s U.S. citizen or permanent resident spouse or parent(s) would suffer “extreme hardship” unless the person was granted a waiver.
