Visa and Legal Residency In the U.S.A.

Legal Entry

 

The United States is a top choice for people applying for green card and permanent residency. Every year hundreds of thousands people apply for U.S immigration visa/ permanent residency but many fail to get it. You can apply all alone if you are educated enough about the visa process and immigration laws. Otherwise in the event that you don't know about VISA procedure, you should hire an immigration advisor/Immigration lawyer that will deal with your entire VISA procedure legally and effortlessly. It is also one of the easiest ways to apply for U.S. green card, permanent residency or working visa. They know the laws; they know how to deal with the paperwork. They are seasoned by experience and can provide you legal help

The immigration lawyer assumes the accompanying job in your entire procedure: he offers free lawyer consultation and experience for the documents required, examines whether you are eligible for the given VISA category, will help you to prepare a letter to the authority, help you to fill VISA application form correctly to avoid any delay. Good consultants will suggest upgrade of your resume and the lawyer will handle any denial of cases and filing the visa again with the proper authorities. 

An individual can apply for a green card through family (FB visas), employment (EB1, 2 and 3 visas), investment (EB-5) and self petition as alien of extraordinary ability (EB1).  These are just a few examples. But for the Business via, you will have to apply for EB-5 visa. The recent policy change has brought some changes into conditions. Under the program, the individual need to invest $900,000 in a Targeted Employment Area and $1.8 million to use an investment in other parts of the country. However, here is a quick list of some of the top ways that individuals get permanent residency in the US: 

Family connections— A relative can help you with getting a green card if they can show connection to you and also the means to support you financially 125% above the poverty level. 

Investment — if you have any resources to spend on a business in the United States, you can apply for permanent residency and become a green card holder. Under the EB-5 Visa Program, the individual need to invest $900,000 in a Targeted Employment Area and $1.8 million to use an investment in other parts of the country. 

Employee sponsored—your employer can sponsor a green card on your behalf. Employers look for individuals who have “extraordinary skills” and advanced degrees.  

Asylum—the US may offer you a green card if you are seeking refuge from threats or violence in your home country.  

Generally, if you have a business ready to support you under the First, Second, or Third Preference classifications, or on the off chance that you have the money resources to contribute under the Fifth Preference program, you will have a shorter hold up time to accomplishing green card or permanent residency. However, the underlying requirements and procedures for employment-based immigration are nothing to sneeze at. Talk with your potential employer, as well as an experienced immigration lawyer.  

 

Green card, Visa  etc......

There are eight main categories of people who qualify for permanent residency.  No matter what avenue you take,  you need to be eligible for a green card under the law, known as the Immigration and Nationality Act, and moreover you need to be “admissible” to the United States of America.

Remember: if you don’t see that you easily fit into one of these categories, it’s worth contacting a top immigration lawyer who may have access to ways to help you that aren’t listed here. 

The eight main categories of people who can apply for a green card are:

1) People who are sponsored by a relative, or family-based immigration

2) People who are sponsored through their work, or employment-based immigration.

3) Refugees, winners of political asylum status can apply.

4) People selected for the visa lottery are candidates for green cards.

5) Victims of Violence such as VAWA and U Visa holders

6) Religious workers

7) Since the Victims of Trafficking and Violence Protection Act of 2000, people who need protection from human trafficking may apply and be protected . For more information read my blog post on the T Visa

8) A handful of other, rarer options including Cuban Adjustment Act as well as investment based green cards.

The first three categories are the most common. 

  • Family immigration 

Certain relatives of United States citizens – called immediate relatives – are not placed on waiting lists with annual limits on how many green cards are available. Immediate relatives include: Parents of a United States citizen over age 21, Husbands and wives of United States citizens, Unmarried children under age 21 of United States citizens, Other relatives of, United States citizens and Lawful Permanent Residents are placed in categories which require them to wait for a green card, sometimes for very lengthy periods. 

  • Employment-based immigration     

If you seek a green card through an employment offer, you can either be eligible immediately if you are in the most elite categories of skill and accomplishments in your field, or wait longer periods of time in other job classifications. 

  • Refugees and Political Asylum                     

Those people who apply for green cards in this area – in which the United States affords protection from persecution in other countries – typically wait one year to file for green cards after a grant of such protection. Remember that getting a green card is never guaranteed, no matter what category you fall into. Contacting a top immigration lawyer is the best way to ensure your success in applying for permanent residency in the US. 


If that is not an option, you could look to file a national interest waiver for an EB2 case or apply under the EB1, Extraordinary Ability category. These do not require an employer-sponsor, but they have very high standards that must be met to qualify. If you have are independently wealthy, you could invest $900,000 to file under the EB5 program. If you have a close relative in the United States, that person may be able to sponsor you. Depending upon what country you are from, you may be able to apply for next year's diversity lottery. As you can see, there are a wide variety of ways to pursue a green card. But you would have to provide more details to determine what option(s) may work for your situation.

The Appeal

 APPEALING AN IMMIGRATION DECISION

Having USCIS deny your application for Permanent Residency or a visa can be incredibly frustrating. If your petition or application has been denied or revoked by the USCIS, in most cases you may appeal the decision to the Board of Immigration Appeals (“BIA”) or Administrative Appeals Office (“AAO”). Our New York City Immigration Law Firm has extensive experience in filing appeals and motions to reconsider.

Perhaps you unintentionally provided information that was inaccurate- and now you have been charged with immigration fraud. You have been denied your visa or permanent resident status. An appeal may provide a more fair result.
You may have had previous counsel assist you and they were negligent in their handling of your case.
Perhaps you have reason to suspect that certain pieces of information in your petition or application might have wrongly caused immigration authorities to question your admissibility. Now you wish for an opportunity to clarify the evidence, strengthening your position.
Your case may have been denied due to the fact that the judge or adjudicating officer incorrectly applied the law.

Whatever your situation may be the Immigration Attorneys at the Fisher Legal Group can assist you through the appeals process. When you appeal an immigration decision, your Immigration appeals attorney will most likely file a brief (a legal explanation) in support of your appeal. The brief will seek to demonstrate that the decision was based on an incorrect application of law or USCIS policy. If at a later point you have new or additional evidence, you can file a Motion to Reopen 

Articles – Good topics for articles include anything related to your company – recent changes to operations, the latest company softball game – or the industry you’re in. General business trends (think national and even international) are great article fodder, too.


Mission statements – You can tell a lot about a company by its mission statement. Don’t have one? Now might be a good time to create one and post it here. A good mission statement tells you what drives a company to do what it does.


Company policies – Are there company policies that are particularly important to your business? Perhaps your unlimited paternity/maternity leave policy has endeared you to employees across the company. This is a good place to talk about that.


Executive profiles – A company is only as strong as its executive leadership. This is a good place to show off who’s occupying the corner offices. Write a nice bio about each executive that includes what they do, how long they’ve been at it, and what got them to where they are.

The Best Immigration Lawyer

Immigration Law

The immigration lawyer helps you to carefully complete your application and make sure that everything in the application is in order before it is sent to the embassy. However, the lawyer cannot help you in speeding your application. In my view if you can read and understand the application process available on immigration website of the county, there is no need to hire a lawyer and pay good money. A simple way to understand it. An immigration lawyer counsels individuals and (businesses with workers) that have immigration issues. They can guide someone through the necessary paperwork, etc. since if it is not done right it will be rejected and their immigration petition (e.g. visa) will be rejected or they may have to do it all over again. Importance will depend on individual. If you think you are smart enough that you can process your case on your own then there is no need of immigration lawyer. I processed my case by myself and so does a lot of other folks. But if you don’t have time to do R-n-D and check regular updates and ok to invest some money then you can go for immigration lawyer. They bring in the expertise to process complex cases as well.  

For instance, Immigration to the US is complicated and charged with emotional issues. People often don’t realize how large the demand is. If an application is not perfect, it can be denied. Immigration practice is Administrative so USCIS can act upon discretion if they want. The process is not designed to be fair. Appealing a USCIS denial is almost useless except in rare situations. The typical applicant will not know what to expect nor the case precedent USCIS adheres to. It’s not designed to be fair. An ‘immigration case’ can be almost anything so without more information, it’s near impossible to answer. Are you referring to K1 or Asylum or a work visa? Some people can do their own immigration work. They will need lots of time to read/write English and work space, computer w/ internet/printer is a prerequisite too. It’s too big a job to do on your kitchen table. The process is not designed to be fair. Having been through it I can say it feels as if the process itself is a test of some sort. If you cannot navigate the process yourself or pay someone to do it for you, USCIS will deny. 

Are you an illegal immigrant? Are you with pending documents, running against time until your visa expires? Are you a citizen willing to employ a group of immigrants? Are you a tourist with the intention of settling? Is your competitor employing illegals, at lower wages, and hurting your business? Are you visiting and have been called as a witness to a trial? Are you illegal, but you have children born in your current country? See the number of possibilities? Fortunately, your question supports a one-size-fits-all answer. A good lawyer can take care of all of the above, provided your goal is the most obvious for each case. That if he accepts your case, because illegal immigrants rarely have the money to afford a good lawyer. He will review the law and see if your situation is applicable to your objective. Like any good lawyer, he’ll research all the sources.
