United States immigration law consists of complex and constantly changing federal rules, procedures, and legal precedent. This section of our website provides a brief summary of certain areas in U.S. immigration law, including immigrant and non-immigrant visas, investment opportunities to become a permanent resident (Green Card), compliance with federal law, and others services we offer.
We provide legal services to all immigrant and non-immigrant visas including the following.
Foreign nationals who are permitted to reside in the U.S. indefinitely are referred to as immigrants or lawful permanent residents (“LPRs”). The document evidencing that one is an LPR is often referred to as a green card. LPRs are permitted to live and work in the U.S. and may travel in and out of the country relatively easily. An LPR is not a U.S. citizen but may be eligible to apply for citizenship after maintaining residency for a certain period of time.
If you wish to obtain a green card through employment, in most cases you will need an employer to sponsor you. Once you have obtained a sponsoring employer, you will need to go through an application process. Generally, there are three major steps in becoming a lawful permanent resident in the United States: labor certification (labor certification does not apply to all cases), the petition, and adjustment of status or consular processing.
