IMMIGRATION LAW

We provide aggressive representation and quality services for a variety of cases, including family-based immigration visas, green cards, stateside waivers, citizenship, Deferred Action for Childhood Arrivals program (DACA - also known as the Dream Act), as well business and employment-based immigration.

Our immigration team has experience in working with several federal agencies including Department of State, Department of Homeland Security and its subagencies: Citizenship and Immigration Services (USCIS), Customs and Border Patrol (CBP) and Immigration Customs Enforcement (ICE).

As many immigration cases overlap with family law, juvenile law, criminal law, and business and corporate law, it is important to have an attorney that is familiar with other areas of law. Our immigration team has experience in representing clients in cases that may affect one's immigration status. We can assist U.S. Citizens and Lawful Permanent Residents (LPR's) in sponsoring immediate family members. We know the importance of obtaining citizenship for those who have been Lawful Permanent Residents for many years and may have a minor criminal history. We understand the divorce process and how to still maintain a green card for persons needing to remove conditions on residence. Our attorneys also assist spouses of L visa and H visa holders obtain work authorization. If you have an immigration issue, we are here to help you find a solution.

Employment Authorization for Certain H-4 Dependent Spouses

Beginning May 26, 2015, certain H-4 dependent spouses of H-1B nonimmigrants can file applications for Employment Authorization Document or EAD (work permit), as long as the H-1B nonimmigrant has already started the process of seeking employment-based lawful permanent resident (LPR) status. There are no annual quota or deadlines and the EADs are renewable as long as the person is still eligible. The processing time for the EAD application is approximately 90 days. USCIS published FAQs online.
