If you want to live and work in the United States or want to bring a family member from a foreign country to the U.S., you will need to follow strict immigration guidelines and procedures. The immigration system in the U.S. is notoriously complex, and policies change on a regular basis. This means that you should always have help from a Huntersville immigration lawyer who can navigate the system for you.
At Vestal Immigration Law, we handle many types of immigration matters, including those mentioned below.
If you are a U.S. citizen, you can sponsor certain immediate family members to obtain immigration documentation. Permanent residents also might be able to sponsor family members, though there is often a long wait time before your family member can obtain the necessary visa.
If you would like to learn whether you are eligible to sponsor someone for family-based immigration, including fiances or spouses, you should schedule an appointment for our team to evaluate your options.
Many companies hire outside the United States for a variety of reasons, so the immigration system allows for immigrant visas for employees who meet certain criteria. You must fall into one of the employment categories, which include a person with extraordinary or exceptional abilities, researchers, executives or managers, someone with a Bachelor’s or two years of experience in the field, religious workers, among others.
If you do not qualify for one of the immigrant employment categories, you might be eligible for a non-immigrant visa. These can be used for short-term business or temporary or seasonal work. Non-immigrant visas are also available for those seeking medical treatment in the U.S. or simply visiting for tourism purposes. We can advise you if you qualify for a non-immigrant visa.
Some people come to the United States or need immigration documents out of necessity instead of due to employment opportunities or family connections. Immigration law provides for different types of humanitarian relief, including:
Once you have a green card for a certain period of time (usually three or five years), you might begin looking into applying for U.S. citizenship. We can advise you whether you qualify for naturalization, as well as assist you through the process.
