Family-based immigration is the heart and soul of the immigration system in the United States. We assist clients with all issues related to family-based immigration and help families to reunite or remain together in the United States.
Under the current law in the United States, the immigration benefits may be available generally to a spouse, children, and parents of a U.S. citizen; a spouse and children of a lawful permanent resident (i.e. a green card holder); and sisters and brothers of a U.S. citizen. Additionally, a special category of visas is available to fiancé/fiancee of a U.S. citizen, as well as to minor children of such fiancé/fiancee.
Depending on circumstances of an individual case, we assist clients with filing their applications with the U.S. Citizenship and Immigration Services (“USCIS”) in the United States and “adjustment of status” without leaving the country. Alternatively, we help clients with applying for an immigrant visa through “consular processing” at the U.S. embassy or U.S. consulate in their home country.
If a client has previous immigration violations or certain criminal convictions, which render her “inadmissible” (i.e. ineligible to receive a visa or become a lawful permanent resident in the United States), we assist such clients with preparing and filing an application for a waiver of “grounds of inadmissibility” based on a hardship to client’s qualifying relative in the United States.
We also assist clients with matters related to international adoption and filing an immigrant petition for an adopted child, whether the adoption occurred under the Hague Convention or in a non-signatory country.
No matter how simple or complication your situation might be, we will work on your matter with diligence and devotion. We will be here for you to answer your questions and guide you step-by-step along the process to alleviate frustration and anxiety inherent in immigration proceedings.
Please remember, that immigration law is considered to be one of the most complex areas of law in the United States and even a seemingly simple issue can often become very convoluted and complex. For that reason, always consult an experienced immigration attorney before making a decision that may affect your immigration status or future eligibility to any immigration benefits in the United States.
