Our Office provides services in a variety of immigration-related matters: Family Visas and Business Visas, Detention and Deportation, and issues related to border crossings at the U.S. / Canada ports of entry.
We assist clients in filing for Immigrant and Non-immigrant Visas. In general, Immigrant visas involve foreign individuals who are sponsored by their immediate family members or their employer. Individuals cannot self-file for Immigrant visas except for a few circumstances such as individuals fleeing persecution, Religious workers, and women fleeing violence.
There are numerous non-immigrant visas, one for each letter of the alphabet from letter A through V. The most common visitor visa is the B-1/B-2 business / tourist visa. This visa does not require a separate sponsorship application, but does require that the visitor show the means to finance their trip. This visa does not permit employment authorization.
Foreign students are often admitted on F-1 visas, as well as on J-1 (exchange), and M-1 (vocational).
