We are committed to serving San Fernando Valley, Los Angeles, San Gabriel Valley, as well as immigrants all over the world. If you want to legally live and work in the U.S. as someone from a different country or want to sponsor a family member so that he or she can join you in the U.S., you will need to contend with the country's immigration system.
The U.S. immigration law is complex, making it important for you to have strong legal representation to help you navigate through its intricacies. Mistakes that you might make on the required petitions and supporting documents can result in denials. Our experienced immigration lawyers have the legal knowledge and skill that are necessary to make your petitions and applications likelier to succeed. We also understand how to secure relief for people who are facing many different types of immigration problems.
We help people to handle many different types of immigration issues and have included a short description of our practice areas below.
A foreign national seeking to live permanently in the United States requires an immigrant visa. To be eligible to apply for a visa, a foreign national must be sponsored by an immediate relative who is at least 21 years of age and is either a U.S. citizen or U.S. Lawful Permanent Resident (green-card holder.)
Visa petitions for fiances and spouses of U.S. citizens or lawful permanent residents must be initiated by the U.S. citizen or LPR spouse. If you want to bring your fiance to the U.S. to get married or to have your spouse who is living abroad join you in the U.S., you will need to file a petition for a K-1 or K-3 visa.
In the US there are two categories of visas: immigrant and non-immigrant. Foreign nationals who intend to enter, live and work in the US, would apply for an immigrant visa. For foreign nationals wishing to enter the US on a temporary basis for tourism, study, business, temporary work, medical treatment, or other non-permanent similar reason, should apply for a non-immigrant visa.
If you are under the age of 21 and need to be protected by the juvenile court because your parent has abandoned, neglected, or abused you, you might be eligible for special immigrant juvenile status.
The U.S. government recognizes that some undocumented immigrants in the U.S. are victims of crimes or victims of family violence by spouses, parents, or children who are U.S. citizens. If you are the victim of a crime or family violence, you may be eligible for a U visa to allow you to become a lawful permanent resident and remain in the U.S.
If you are granted asylum in the U.S., you will be allowed to legally live and work in the country. Qualifying for asylum is not easy, however. To apply for asylum from within the U.S., you must submit Form I-589 together with supporting documents and a detailed affidavit of the reasons supporting your application for asylum.
Naturalization is the process of becoming a U.S. citizen. To apply for naturalization, a foreign national must fulfill the requirements set by Congress and the Immigration and Nationality Act.
Removal proceedings are among the most difficult types of immigration proceedings to understand. If you or your loved one is facing removal proceedings, getting help from an experienced immigration attorney is critical.
If you are an undocumented spouse of an active or veteran member of the U.S. Armed Forces, you may be eligible for a program called parole in place. This program allows the undocumented spouses of active military service members and veterans to apply for green cards while they remain in the U.S. instead of returning to their home countries to apply from there.
If you have lived in the U.S. for 10 or more years and are currently facing removal proceedings, you might be eligible for a green card through the cancellation of removal for non-permanent residents.
