Our Firm is Very Passionate About Bringing Families Together Through the Family-Based Immigration Process

We are dedicated  to assisting our clients who are
looking to help loved ones immigrate

We sincerely believe that nothing is more important than family.  In sympathy with my clients I am fully aware of the hardships family members face when they are apart simply due to their inability to obtain lawful immigration status in the United States.  As a very experienced immigration attorney I can explain with utmost honesty the procedures and requirements that are involved with different forms of family-based immigration.  In most cases, my clients are U.S. citizens or permanent residents who wish to obtain U.S. entry or permanent residence for a relative: parent, spouse, fiancé or fiancée, son or daughter, step-children, same-sex partner, brother or sister. I can help you understand what to expect and what needs to be done. My firm serves family, individual and business clients nationwide and around the world.  My versatility and breadth of experience in U.S. immigration law offers a significant benefit for clients.

Much of my work for family clients involves achieving entry, maintenance of status, adjustment of status, change of status, and finding the fastest and most effective ways to meet immediate or ongoing immigration objectives. Sometimes the fastest way will require additional work later on, as when a noncitizen spouse enters the United States on a nonimmigrant K-3 visa. I give my clients clear explanations of all their options, so that the eventual choice is based on sound advice and clear judgment.

Helping Same-sex Families obtain Immigration benefits

I am committed to helping same-sex partners and families obtain all the immigration benefits available under the law, whether the foreign national family member is in the United States or abroad.  If you are in a same-sex marriage and need immigration help – count on us!  Some of the areas we can help with are:

  • Adjustment of status for spouses and children under the age of 18 at the time the marriage is entered into;
  • K-1 Fiance Visas
  • K-3 Marriage Visas
  • H-1B Family Members
  • L-1 Family Members
  • E-2 Family Members

Additional areas are set forth below.

Range of family-based immigration matters

Rely on us to help U.S. citizens and permanent residents bring family members to this country. Examples of the kinds of family immigration situations I handle include:

  • Permanent residence (green card) for immediate relatives
  • Entry and permanent residence for noncitizen spouses
  • Preference categories for family-based immigration visas
  • Nonimmigrant K-3 visas
  • Fiancé or fiancée visas
  • Adjustment of status
  • Consular processing
  • Family-based waivers of inadmissibility
  • Naturalization and citizenship
  • Removal defense

I explain each process carefully, so that you know just what to expect: length of time, priority dates, evidence and documentation requirements, visa bulletins, interview process, and the affidavits of support that must be completed for the noncitizen relative.

You can count on me to provide straightforward and timely answers to your questions while giving you the information you need to make informed choices about your family.
