Immigration Law

The United States is a nation founded on the principles of immigration. Yet, immigration laws are complicated and challenging to navigate. There are various reasons for seeking status in the U.S. such as that of spouse, student, temporary visitor, long-term employment, and citizenship.

Special applications and permit requests are required for each. It is highly recommended that anyone wishing to seek temporary or permanent resident status in the U.S. seek the advice and counsel provided by a knowledgeable immigration lawyer.

Each type of immigration status requires a specific immigration visa which takes a certain length of time to complete and is divided between two types; immigrant and non-immigrant. Immigrant status filings are for people who wish to spend a certain length of time in the U.S. with the intention of becoming a U.S. citizen at a future time.

Non-immigrant status is reserved for people who wish to visit the U.S. for specific reasons within a set time limit. The times required to establish immigrant status varies as does the time limit for each assigned visa.

Often, a person will apply for a visa which is not suitable to his or her position thus jeopardizing his or her acceptance as well as negatively affecting future visa requests. An immigration lawyer skilled in the various intricacies of immigration law is an ally in assisting you with finding the best course available for your individual situation.
