If you want to live in the United States either temporarily or permanently, you need to consult an experienced immigration lawyer. Immigration law can be complicated, but an attorney who understands these laws can explain all of your options and help you make the right choices.
Immigration attorneys deal with three main types of cases:
If you want to come to the United States temporarily for work or study, you may apply for a visa. A variety of different types of visas are available to accommodate exchange students, college students, temporary workers, business visitors, diplomats and more.
If you want to live in the United States permanently, you may apply for permanent residence, which may also be referred to as a “green card.” There are several options available for individuals who want to apply for permanent residency in the United States. For example, you may be able to get a green card through sponsorship from an employer or a family member. You may also qualify for permanent residence if you are a victim of abuse, a victim of human trafficking or a refugee.
Naturalization is a process that allows a foreign national to become a citizen of the United States. To qualify for naturalization, you must meet several requirements established by the federal government. You must also pass a Naturalization Test.
Each of these options offers different advantages and serves a different population. An experienced attorney will be able to help you determine which of these options is right for you.
