The United States of America provides people with many different opportunities, and it offers a safe place to live, as well as a variety of benefits for citizens or other residents.

Assistance With Immigration-Related Matters in Bedford, Texas

We help immigrants, visitors, and sponsors address multiple different types of immigration issues, including:

  • Family-based visas - U.S. citizens can sponsor spouses, children, or parents for immediate relative visas, or they can apply for fiancé visas in order to get married to foreign citizens. Family preference visas, which are available in limited quantities, may be available for immediate family members of lawful permanent residents or non-immediate family members of U.S. citizens.
  • Employer sponsorship - U.S. employers can sponsor foreign employees for immigrant visas, which are issued in order of preference, with priority being given to those who have extraordinary abilities. Temporary work visas such as H-1B visas may also be available for qualifying workers, and they will allow a person to stay in the United States for a limited number of years.
  • Non-immigrant visas - While the requirements for entering the United States for a temporary visit may be less strict than for those who wish to obtain permanent residence, visitors will still need to provide certain types of documentation and answer questions asked by immigration and customs officials. Temporary visas include tourist visas, student visas, or visas for temporary workers.
  • Investor visas - Foreign citizens who plan to invest in U.S.-based businesses or commercial enterprises may qualify for either immigrant or non-immigrant visas.
  • Green cards - Immigrants may apply for lawful permanent resident status. Non-permanent residents who are currently present in the U.S. may qualify for a green card if they meet the requirements for adjustment of status.
  • Waivers of inadmissibility - When applying for a visa or green card or at other stages in the immigration process, officials may determine that a person is inadmissible to the United States. In some cases, immigrants may qualify for waivers that may address inadmissibility due to criminal convictions, fraud or misrepresentation during the immigration process, or health issues, or provisional waivers may be available for those who had an unlawful presence in the United States for at least six months.
  • Citizenship - After maintaining lawful permanent resident status for the required number of years, a person may apply for naturalization and become a U.S. citizen.
  • Deportation defense - In cases where a person is detained by immigration officials or receives a Notice to Appear in immigration court, they will need to determine their options for defending against removal from the United States. In some cases, an immigrant may request an immigration bond hearing so that they can be released from custody during their deportation case.
  • Humanitarian relief - There are a variety of options available to immigrants who may be at risk of harm if they are deported. These include U visas, VAWA self-petitions, temporary protected status, applying for asylum, or participation in the DACA program.
  • Appeals - Unfavorable decisions in immigration courts or other decisions made by immigration officials may be appealed. We can help immigrants determine their options for filing appeals or asking that cases be heard in federal courts.
