Family-based immigration petitions enable a loved one to migrate to the United States. This may be a parent, spouse, sibling, or child. We pride ourselves on helping families stay together. Contact us so we can help you understand your options for helping relatives become lawful residents.
Many immigrants are vulnerable to abuse and exploitation but are too afraid to come forward to authorities, fearing deportation. Congress created T & U Visas to address this deplorable problem by protecting vulnerable victims and encouraging victims to report crimes. If you are a victim of a crime or trafficking, you may be eligible. There is also specific relief available for victims of domestic violence. Contact our office to discuss these options further.
Individuals who are skilled or educated, and who have job offers, have the possibility of immigrating to the U.S. Employment based immigration is a complex process involving many different Federal agencies and categories. If you are are seeking a visa or you are an employer seeking to sponsor individuals, we can help guide you through the process.
ASYLUM & REFUGEE PETITIONS
Refugee status or asylum may be granted to people who have been persecuted or fear they will be persecuted on account of race, religion, nationality, or membership in a particular social group or political opinion.
Cancellation of removal (deportation) is a limited form of relief available to certain permanent and non-permanent residents. It is available to non-permanent residents who have been in the U.S. continuously for at least 10 years upon a showing that an immediate U.S. citizen family member would suffer extreme hardship. Permanent residents put into removal proceedings following the conviction of a crime may also be eligible.
Non-immigrant visas, or temporary visas, are available to those individuals who intend to stay in the U.S. for a limited time and then return to their home country. This includes international students interested in studying in the U.S.
