Assistance With Immigration Cases in Arlington, Texas

We can assist with a wide range of issues related to immigration, including:

  • Family-based immigration: Citizens and lawful permanent residents of the United States may be able to provide sponsorship for family members, helping them obtain immigrant visas that will allow them to resettle in the U.S. In these cases, eligibility for visas will be based on close family relationships, such as those between spouses, parents, children, or siblings. To begin the process, the sponsoring family member must file a petition on behalf of his or her relative with the U.S. Citizenship and Immigration Services (USCIS). If approved for an immigrant visa, a family member may be able to receive an adjustment of status and become a lawful permanent resident after entering the United States.
  • Employment-based immigration: Foreign nationals may receive authorization to live and work in the U.S. based on job offers from employers in the United States. Employment-based immigrant visas are divided into different preference categories based on factors such as education level, work experience, and job requirements. Each category has its own eligibility criteria and annual limits set by law. Some immigrants may also be eligible for temporary employment visas, such as H1-B visas.
  • Investor immigration: Foreign entrepreneurs who plan to invest substantial amounts of capital in new businesses in the United States may be provided with a path to lawful permanent residence or conditional residency, and they may eventually be able to apply for full citizenship. The most prominent investor visa is the EB-5 Immigrant Investor Program, which requires significant investment in job-creating businesses.
  • Student visas: The student visa program allows foreign students to pursue academic studies at accredited educational institutions in the United States. There are two main categories: F Visas for academic study at colleges, universities, seminaries, conservatories, or other academic institutions; and M Visas for vocational training programs.
  • Green Cards: A Green Card grants lawful permanent resident status in the United States. It provides immigrants with many rights similar to those of U.S. citizens, including the ability to live and work permanently in the country. Green Cards can be obtained through a variety of channels, including family sponsorship, employment-based immigration, or refugee/asylum status.
  • Citizenship and naturalization: U.S. citizenship is granted to those who are born in the United States or have a U.S. citizen parent. Citizenship may also be obtained through a legal process called naturalization. Foreign nationals who have lived in the U.S. for a certain period of time may apply for naturalization if they meet all eligibility requirements, including passing an English and civics exam. Once granted citizenship, immigrants will enjoy certain rights and privileges that are not available to Green Card holders.
  • Deportation defense: Immigrants may be subject to removal from the United States based on violations of immigration laws, criminal convictions, or other issues. Deportation proceedings typically occur when a person's immigration status is found to be expired or invalid or when they violate certain criminal laws. Defending against deportation often requires the assistance of an attorney who can provide guidance on the options that may be available, including the possibility of receiving humanitarian relief.
