I am married to a U.S. citizen. Can I become one now?

This depends on the status of the foreign spouse. Many individuals are quick to assume that marriage may lead to immediate US citizenship, which is not the case. Marriage to an undocumented person can lead to a lengthy process to acquire permanent resident status and many individuals are surprised to learn this.

What work visa options are available?

Work visa options are rather limited under current immigration laws, so employers have to understand a general work permit for an employee simply may not be available to them. We work with employers, though, to understand employer needs - maybe the H-2A, H-2B, H-1B visa options are an option for that employer.

I know someone who received a fast result. Can my case be similar?

Every immigration case is different. Even for siblings who believe they are equally entitled to similar options, this simply may not be the case. We always receive inquiries from people who claim they heard about an immigration case that was approved in a matter of days. Immigration cases must be filed with caution and the timelines must be reviewed so that the client is prepared for a realistic wait period on his or her case.

Does criminal history play a part in my status?

Crimmigration, or the intersection of criminal law and immigration law, is very complex and interpretations of crimes and criminal elements to a case change with new, emerging case law.

What is President Obama's Executive Action?

Most aspects of Executive Action are under litigation and / or have not been implemented. We receive calls from clients regarding this and unfortunately we have not been able to move forward with filing for many individuals due to the stall in the implementation.
