Business and Employment Immigration

We help our clients get permission to work either on a temporary basis for nonimmigrants or on a permanent basis for immigrants. Under U.S. immigration laws, a foreign national is required to have a specific nonimmigrant or immigrant visa, depending on the kind of work to be performed.

Family Immigration
A person may be eligible to obtain permanent residence (a green card) through a family member who is a U.S. citizen or permanent resident, or based on a special category, such as the battered child or spouse of a U.S. citizen or permanent resident, the battered parent of a U.S. citizen, the widow or widower of a U.S. citizen, or a child of a foreign diplomat born in the United States. In addition, the fiancé(e) of a U.S. citizen may be eligible to get a nonimmigrant visa (K-1 visa) to come to the U.S. to get married and then to apply for permanent residence. Some permanent residents, referred to as conditional permanent residents, receive green cards valid for 2 years. In order to remain a permanent resident, a conditional permanent resident must file a petition to remove the condition (I-751 petition) during the 90 days before the card expires.

Motions, Appeals and Federal Litigation

The decisions of USCIS officers and immigration judges may be challenged or reopened for reconsideration if certain conditions are met. If your immigration case has been denied or unreasonably delayed, we can carefully review the facts and applicable laws to see if a motion to reopen, an appeal, or federal court litigation would be appropriate.
