Family Immigration

Family unity is one of the main objectives of US immigration law. US citizens and lawful permanent residents may apply for certain family members to immigrate to the US. We handle legal matters related to:

  • Petitions & Visa Preference Categories
  • K-Visas for Fiancé, Spouse, or Children
  • Foreign National-Spouse Visas

Business Immigration

Encouraging the flow of commerce into and out of the US is a component of US immigration law. Many avenues exist for foreign nationals to come to, or stay in, the US to conduct business, specifically:

  • Employment-Based Permanent Visas
  • Temporary Work Visas


Naturalization is the end of a long journey for foreign nationals. Although it may seem straightforward, the requirements for naturalization can be complex and confusing. Learn more about:

Non-immigrant Visas
