We Can Help You Navigate the U.S. Visa Application Process
Obtaining a visa means you are eligible to enter and stay in the United States. The application process follows a similar procedure for all types of visas; however, there are differences depending on:
- The visa category and type you want
- The country that you are applying from
Per U.S. Customs and Border Protection, there are two main visa types: nonimmigrant and immigrant visas (also known as green cards). Nonimmigrant visas are issued for temporary visits to the U.S., while immigrant visas are issued for people who want to permanently reside in the U.S.
As a general overview, the main types of visas include:
- Employment visas
- Family-based visas
- Fiancé visas
- Marriage visas
- Immigrant visas
- Student visas
- Permanent residence visas
- Visitor visas
Applying for a visa can be a challenging process. We can help you complete the necessary forms correctly and clarify the information you need to support your application.

We Can Help You Become a Permanent Resident in the United States
There are many ways to establish permanent residency in the U.S., such as through a green card, asylum, or naturalization. If necessary, we will help you seek:
A Green Card
One of the ways you may seek permanent U.S. residency is by applying for a “permanent alien registration card,” but we will use its more common name: a green card. Green cards allow foreign nationals to live and work in the U.S. Yet, there is a conditional period before you can apply for a permanent residency visa.
The government only issues a certain amount of green cards each year. This can make getting one challenging. It can be beneficial to work with an immigration lawyer to help you with the application process and avoid mistakes.
The U.S. provides asylum for a specific number of legally qualified refugees each year. According to a recent U.S. Department of State report to Congress, the proposed refugee admissions ceiling for the fiscal year 2022 is 125,000 people. The proposal aims to help people who live in fear of persecution based on:
- Political opinion
- Social status
If you or someone you care about is seeking asylum in the U.S., it is important to be aware of the time and effort required to apply and be considered. As such, if you are considering enlisting our help, the sooner you act, the faster we can start advocating for you.
Naturalization is the legal process through which a foreign person can acquire full U.S. citizenship. To be eligible, you will need to meet specific requirements. For example:
- You were born abroad to at least one parent who is already a U.S. citizen.
- You must be at least 18 years old.
- You have lived in the U.S. as a green card holder for a certain number of years.
- You can demonstrate sufficient knowledge of U.S. history, customs, and the English language.
- You must be able to prove your “good moral character.”
- You must swear allegiance to the U.S. Constitution.
- You have established residency in the same district you are applying for.
While this list is not exhaustive, you have multiple options for seeking U.S. residency. This is where a lawyer from our team can lend their support and experience. We will fight for residency based on the facts of your situation.
