Our Office Assists Families In Reuniting

One of our greatest pleasures is helping to bring families together who have been separated due to immigration issues. We help parents, siblings, and spouses to file I-130 applications so that their loved ones can join them in this country.

We also assist people in asylum applications, cancellation of removal for legal permanent residents, undocumented individuals and people in immigration court. If you were told that you were ineligible to enter the United States, then we will evaluate the circumstances of your denial and make a determination of what your options may be. There could be a solution through filing an I-212 waiver for permission to reapply is sufficient or if an I-601 or an I-601a waiver as a last resort, however those may add more time to your total process. Forms that our clients typically provide us to assist them include:

  • Family immigration
    • I-130 petition for alien relative: spouse, child, parent, sibling
      • I-485 adjustment of status to that of legal permanent resident

One of the most common issues for immigrants who come to this country is employment. Whether you are a permanent resident who is waiting for work authorization or you came here on an H1B visa, we can assist you.
