Being in the country illegally can lead to severe penalties and costly legal problems. Contact our experienced immigration lawyers today for assistance with any of your visa needs.
Immigrant visas are those for aliens who are seeking to remain in the United States on a long-term or permanent basis. This includes the fiancée or spouse of a U.S. citizen and most other family members. Employment and work visas are appropriate for an immigrant who has a U.S. employer sponsor or any American business that wishes to hire a foreign national for full-time employment.
Fiancé visas (fiancée visas) allow immigrants to enter the United States for the purpose of getting married to an American citizen. Also known as the K-1 Fiancé Visa, this process requires submitting an application and waiting for approval. Once approval has been obtained to enter the country, the entering alien must be married within 90 days. After the wedding, we will help you apply for a green card for the new spouse, which is accomplished by submitting an adjustment of status application.
We can assist with both immigrant and non-immigrant visas for spouses. The K-3 non-immigrant spouse visa allows the spouse of an American citizen to travel in the United States. The CR-1 immigrant spouse visa provides the spouse of an American citizen to obtain permanent resident status. The process for obtaining marriage visas is extensive and complex. Our spouse visa attorney can assist you with every step of the process.
For family visas, there are multiple options available. Choosing the correct family visa is critical to getting an immigrant relative or family member approved for legal entry into the United States. Immediate family members include the U.S. citizen’s spouse, children (unmarried, under 21), parents, and adopted foreign children. Non-immediate family members extend to a U.S. citizen’s grandchildren, married children, and siblings over the age of 21. Our family visa lawyer can answer your questions about other individuals who might also qualify to obtain a family-based visa.
Employment & Work Visas
Foreign national employees can obtain a visa that allows them to work temporarily in the United States. Permanent immigrant work visas are also available. To successfully obtain work authorization, applicants must choose from multiple types of both temporary and permanent employment visas. Making the right choice and completing the application paperwork correctly is imperative. Our corporate or business immigration attorney can help you identify the correct kind of visa to achieve your goals and assist you and the employer through the entire application, processing and approval processes.
