Are you an immigrant or have family members you want to immigrate to the United States? If so, there are complicated procedures you need to follow and applications to file in order to maintain lawful immigration status.

If you need assistance, do not put off calling an immigration lawyer near you for more information.
We provide a wide range of immigration services, including the following.
Family-based immigration – Many people come to the United States to reunite with their family members who are U.S. citizens or even permanent residents. We can help with every step of the process, including sponsoring family members and making sure they have the proper documentation.
Visas – There are different types of visas that allow you or your family members to lawfully enter the United States, and we can assist you with obtaining a range of nonimmigrant or immigrant visas.
Asylum – If you are entering the U.S. to escape persecution in your home country, you will need to follow a special set of procedures. Obtaining immigration documents based on asylum is often an uphill battle, and it is critical that you have the right legal assistance to ensure that you can stay in the U.S. and remain safe.
Green cards – Obtaining a green card means that you are a lawful permanent resident of the United States, and it comes with additional benefits and rights. You also need to renew this documentation much less frequently, and holding a green card can lead to citizenship if you so choose. There are two different ways to apply for a green card if you have a family-based visa – adjustment of status if you are in the United States already or consular processing if you are outside the U.S.
Citizenship and naturalization – If your goal is to become a United States citizen, we can help assess whether you meet the criteria for naturalization and help you with the entire application process.
Removal of conditions – If you have a conditional green card, we can help determine whether you are eligible to remove those conditions of your immigration status and apply for a full 10-year green card. This requires specific paperwork with USCIS.
Removal defense – Facing proceedings for possible removal or deportation can be terrifying for you and your family. Never face these proceedings alone, as you can defend against deportation with the right legal help. If you already received an order of deportation, we can help you file an appeal, though you have a very limited time to do so.
