We love binational couples! Let us help you understand how to apply for permanent residence based on your marriage to a US citizen or a US permanent resident.
Is your green card valid for only two years? Then you are probably a “conditional resident.” Let us help you remove those conditions so you get a 10-year green card.
If you qualify to become a US citizen, you should apply right away! Not only can you vote and get a US passport, but you can also sponsor other family to move to the US to join you as well.
US law allows you to apply for asylum if you are outside of your home country and fear persecution because of your politics, your religion, your sexuality, your tribe, or another similar reason.
Changing to student (F-1) status takes several steps and multiple applications. But we regularly do this, so let us help!
A working visa for processionals is an H-1B. Importantly, immigration officials have a strict definition of who can get an H-1B based on job requirements. We can help you pass through these steps.
Professionals in Canada, Mexico, and the United States have relatively easy freedom of movement in these countries’ labor markets. We can help you apply for TN visas or TN status under these rules.
Many countries have treaties with the US to allow investment. If your country of citizenship has a treaty with the US, and if you have funds to invest in a reasonable business in the US, you can get E-2 status. We can help!
A US employer can sponsor almost any worker for a green card to come or stay in the US. The trick is navigating the advertising/recruitment process.
