  • Marriage and Family Visas

    Family-based and fiancé visa petitions can sometimes present unusual challenges. We will help you navigate the entire process from filing the petition to seeking waivers of inadmissibility for criminal convictions or fraud.

  • Deportation and Removal Defense

    Facing deportation can be frightening. It is critical that you get accurate legal advice to assess all your options and avenues for relief against deportation. We can review your immigration history and any criminal record to craft the best strategy

  • Naturalization and U.S. Citizenship

    We are well-versed with the complications that may arise when applying for citizenship. We will screen for a criminal record or an irregularity in a person’s visa history that may present a serious obstacle to obtaining citizenship

  • Deferred Action for Childhood Arrivals (DACA)

    DACA allows those who entered the United States at a young age, grew up here, and are in school or finished high school here to obtain relief from deportation and work legally in the United States.

  • Provisional Waivers for Inadmissibility

    You may be able to seek a waiver of inadmissibility for unlawful presence here in the United States before you must leave for your immigrant visa interview in your home country. We can assess your eligibility and help you prepare a winning application.

  • Petitions for Same-Sex Couples

    If you are married or plan to get married in a state that recognizes same-sex marriages, the US citizen can now file a petition for his or her foreign national same-sex spouse who can then seek lawful permanent residency (green card).

  • Immigration Consequences of Criminal Convictions

    A criminal conviction may lead to deportation proceedings, even if you are a lawful permanent resident. We can work with your criminal defense attorney to craft a plea to minimize the immigration consequences.

  • U Visas and VAWA Relief

    If you have been a victim of certain types of crimes, including domestic violence, you may be eligible for a temporary visa or cancellation of deportation proceedings that will ultimately lead to a green card.
