The process to obtain an immigrant or nonimmigrant visa can be complex and confusing. Your application is expected to be answered completely and correctly. It is important to know that if you do not answer everything correctly or make a false or misleading statement on your visa application, it can lead to criminal litigation which can even result in your deportation.
Our New York immigration attorneys have represented clients facing all types of legal issues with regard to US immigration. If you have immigration questions related to visas, citizenship, or even deportation, then it is important to speak to an experienced immigration lawyer who can best help you.
What is a Visa?
A visa allows a foreign citizen to travel, work, or otherwise live in the United States. There are nearly 200 different types of visas that exist in the US today. The two main categories of United States visas are Immigrant visas and nonimmigrant visas. Within these categories, the most common visa types include:
Types of Immigrant Visas
- Marriage-based Immigrant Visa
- Employee-based Immigrant Visa
- Family-based Immigrant Visa
- Refugee or Asylum Seeker
Types of Nonimmigrant Visas
- Work Visas
- Student Visas
- Travel Visas
- Special Programs
If you are interested in obtaining an immigrant or nonimmigrant visa, then having the help of an experienced immigration attorney can be just what you need. Our New York immigration firm services clients on both ends of the US immigration spectrum. We represent clients that are working towards their citizenship as well as others who are facing deportation. If you are facing deportation, it is important to partner with an experienced immigration lawyer who knows the US immigration system inside and out to best defend you.
Adjustment of Status for US Immigration Clients
If you are looking to apply for a green card or another permanent status from within the United States, then the process you will follow is called an adjustment of status. Most visa types require you to leave the United States before switching to another type of visa. An adjustment of status allows you to go through the process while still in the United States. An adjustment of status can also be the first step towards eventual citizenship. A conversation with one of our New York immigration lawyers will help you determine if it is possible to adjust your status.
Why Choose an NYC Immigration Lawyer to Help?
If you live in New York and are looking for immigration help related to obtaining an immigrant or nonimmigrant visa, then hiring an experienced immigration lawyer can be a great option. While our country has historically been a place that has encouraged immigration, our recent history has shown an opposite approach.
Deportation and removal proceedings are at an all-time high, and the US government has shown that they will strip your immigration status after deportation proceedings and send you to your country of origin for a seemingly never-ending list of reasons. Our immigration lawyers have also helped clients with immigration litigation actions such as adjustments of status, obtaining citizenship, and even defending against criminal cases.
