Achieve the American Dream
Immigration can be a daunting procedure. There are miles of red tape and seemingly hundreds of hoops you must go through to become a U.S. citizen. It is worth the effort. We understand the immigration process and how it relates to your situation. More importantly, we want to advocate on your behalf and help you achieve your goals.
"One of my proudest moments was becoming a U.S. citizen. I am grateful for what this wonderful country has given me. It is exciting to help people achieve their version of the American Dream. It's an amazing thing to do."
In some cases, immigration will not be easy, but it is important to know your rights and your options. The Vega Acosta Law Firm would be proud to help you achieve your immigration goal. As your lawyer, we can discuss several non-immigrant and immigrant visas and determine which best meets your needs.
Whether for a technical, two-year or a four-year program, you may qualify for a student visa. Upon completion of your educational program, you may qualify for an opportunity to work and gain training in your chosen field of study for a limited time while residing in the US.
The fiancée visa expressly notifies USCIS that your intent is to remain in the country by concluding a valid marriage with a US petitioner. This visa is a necessary first step so that you can enter legally into the US, marry and then have your new spouse proceed with a Petition for Alien Relative.
Business Personnel Visas
There are several non-immigrant visa opportunities for individuals who wish to come to the US for employment. A few visas that we can assist with include:
- E Visas (Treaty Traders and Investors)
- H Visas (Specialty occupations, temporary agricultural workers, skilled/unskilled workers, trainees)
- L Visas (Intra-company Transferees)
- O Visas (Persons of outstanding or extraordinary ability in arts, science, education, business, athletics)
- P Visas (Athletes and group entertainers)
Permanent Residence (Green Card)
Technically a status adjustment, we can help you if you qualify for either of the following processes for becoming a permanent resident:
Parents, children and siblings can sponsor relatives for permanent residency. Waiting times differ depending on your country of citizenship and the number of people applying for citizenship.
Employers may sponsor an individual for permanent resident status. Like family-based sponsorship, there is a cap on the number that can become permanent residents annually.
If you are currently a permanent resident or want to know what it takes to become a US citizen, schedule an appointment today so that we can begin your path to citizenship.
