Immigration lawyers provide a wide range of services to help people who want to move to the United States, including helping applicants apply for the proper type of visa that best suits their individual circumstances. Immigration lawyers generally determine which visa category is the most suitable by asking the applicant a set of questions, such as the following:

  • Are you entering the United States to:
    • Purse academic studies or vocational studies?
    • Visit friends or family?
    • Obtain permanent residence?
  • How long are you planning to stay in the United States?
  • Are you married or is your family traveling with you to the United States?

Types of Immigration Services Available

At the Rodriguez-Nanney Law Firm, we provide legal counsel for a number of immigration services including, but not limited to:

  • Obtaining Visas:  The nature of your specific circumstances will help determine which type of visa you should apply for.  This may include a host of options for employment-related visas(including H, L, EB1, EB2, EB5, and Schedule A visas) as well as student or visitor visas.
  • Naturalization: If you have been living in the US for over five years, you may be eligible to become a US citizen through the process of naturalization(there are some exceptions to the five year wait for members of the military, spouses of US citizens and children of US citizens). Some of the criteria which may need to be include achieving Basic English literacy among other basic prerequisites.
  • Green Card applications: Another important immigration service is providing assistance to those seeking to apply for Permanent Residency in the US (also called a “Green Card” if they have immediate relatives in the US or have skills which are needed by the US.
  • Political asylum
  • Motions to reopen immigration cases
  • Issues related to removal or deportation
  • Family-based visa applications
  • Fiancé visas, also referred to as K Visas
  • Work visas, including those that are employment based (H, L, EB1, EB2, EB5, and Schedule A visas)
  • Applying for permanent residence
  • Applications for citizenship
  • Motions to reopen immigration cases
  • Issues related to removal or deportation

One of the main hurdles to overcome is to know exactly which type of immigration or non-immigration visa you are applying for. Some of the main immigration categories include the following:

  • Non-immigrant Visas: Allow you to enter the United States temporarily for a pre-determined amount of time.
  • Visitor Visas: Allows a foreign national to visit friends or family in the United States. Certain countries, however, do not require a Visitor Visa to travel to the US for 90 days under the Visa Waiver Program.
  • Student Visas: There are two different types of Student Visas – one is for a student who is enrolled as a full-time student at a US-based university or other educational institution. Another type of Student Visa is needed if you are pursuing a non-academic or vocational area of study.
