Our firm’s principal attorney has advised thousands of aliens and their family members or prospective employers as to what options might be available to them in their quest for U.S. visas, lawful immigration status or continued lawful status.

The attorney advising any alien at our firm will carefully assess the alien’s circumstances to determine what viable options might be available to the alien. The options that may be available to any alien will depend on numerous factors, including the alien’s current U.S. immigration status, manner of entry to the U.S., adverse immigration history, criminal history, family relationships, length residence the U.S., educational history and current employment opportunities. If the alien appears to have an adverse immigration or criminal history, the firm will first take steps to obtain any available records so that they may be included in the attorney’s assessment.

Upon the firm ascertaining all the necessary factors, the firm will suggest the most viable option, if any. The most common options and categories may include the following:
