We help reunite families through immigration. We assist clients with relatives living abroad to plan the best reunion strategy and bring family members into the U.S. in the shortest time possible.
Family reunification is at the core of the U.S. immigration law. As a result, many U.S. citizens and lawful permanent residents seek to have family members living overseas come to live and work in the U.S. We are experienced in all aspects of family immigration and will help you determine the best options available to you and your family.
If you are a U.S. Citizen or Lawful Permanent Resident, you likely have options to sponsor certain family members to come to the U.S. because these groups of individuals may petition to have certain relatives immigrate to the United States and obtain a green card. These relatives may also later be eligible to obtain citizenship through naturalization.
We help lawful permanent residents to become U.S. citizens through naturalization.
A green card holder (a lawful permanent resident) may apply to become a citizen if he or she meets certain conditions. Generally, once he or she becomes a citizen, the foreign national cannot be removed from the U.S. The foreign national’s future children will normally be U.S. citizens by birth no matter where they are born. The foreign national can also petition for parents, spouse, or minor, unmarried children as immediate relatives and can even petition for his or her older or married children or siblings and their families.
In addition to sponsoring family members to immigrate to the U.S., as a U.S. citizen you can vote, hold public office, travel on a U.S. passport and enjoy the protection of the U.S. government while abroad.
Asylum law includes representation of and advocacy for individuals fleeing persecution and seeking refuge in the U.S.
We can help you apply for asylum if you have a well-founded fear of persecution or actually suffered persecution due to your race, religion, nationality, membership in a particular social group, and political opinion.
You may apply for asylum regardless of your immigration status within one year of your arrival to the United States, unless one of the exceptions apply. If you are eligible for asylum, you may be permitted to remain in the U.S.
You may include your spouse and children who are in the U.S. on your application at the time you file or at any time until a final decision is made on your case. To include your child on your application, the child must be under 21 and unmarried.
We help with your application for an immigration or non-immigrant visa at the U.S. Consulate.
Though most consulates do not permit the presence of an attorney inside the consulate, the current immigration law recognizes that a visa applicant may be represented upon receipt of a properly executed entry of appearance with the U.S. Department of State. This gives the power to the attorney to communicate with the consulate on behalf of an applicant during the entire visa application process.
If you are applying for an immigrant or non-immigrant visa, we can assist you with the entire application process by completing your application documents, reviewing your documentary evidence to prove eligibility, preparing you for consular interviews and when necessary, applying for various waivers of inadmissibility.
