On a K-1 visa, you can enter the U.S. for the purpose of marriage. This is a nonimmigrant, temporary visa, so the marriage should take place within 90 days of arrival. We can help you gather appropriate documentation and prepare and file both the required I-129 petition and K-1 visa application. Additionally, we can help you file a K-2 derivative visa to bring over your children as well. Through an adjustment of status proceeding, we can also help you obtain a Green Card and lawful permanent residency.
If you are already married but your spouse is abroad, we can help you bring your spouse into the U.S. on a K-3 visa, as well as your kids with a K-4 derivative visa. And we’ll later help you through an adjustment of status to get lawful permanent residency. Our experienced immigration attorneys can also help you obtain Green Cards and permanent residence for many members of your family, including a spouse, children (even if they are grown and married), parents and siblings. Talk to our office about filing an I-130 Petition for Alien Relative; we’ll work to help your petition be successful in as short a time frame as possible.
After three years of marriage to a U.S. citizen, a Green Card holder can apply to become a naturalized citizen if the resident meets a host of other eligibility requirements. We can determine if you are eligible for naturalization and help you gather and prepare the appropriate documentation to support your petition.
Not all marriages work out, but if your immigration status was dependent on a marriage, that status could be in jeopardy if you divorce. Don’t let the threat of deportation stick you in an unhappy marriage for life. We may be able to help you remove the conditions of your residency through an I-751 petition or find other creative solutions to your immigration concerns.
Victims of crime, spousal abuse or domestic violence may be able to immigrate, along with their children, on a U-visa. A U-visa is a nonimmigrant visa, so it only provides immigration benefits for a limited period of time. We can help you file a successful petition for a U-visa and seek adjustment of status if applicable. You may also be eligible for lawful permanent residence if you meet the requirements under the Violence Against Women Act (VAWA).
