Family-Based Immigration

U.S. citizens and some permanent residents can sponsor close relatives through family-based visa petitions.  Family-based visas can be complex, especially where they involve consular processing, criminal convictions or prior violations of immigration status. We can assist your family in following immigration matters:

  • Fiancé K-1 Visa

  • Green Cards for Spouses of US Citizens

  • Green Cards for Spouses of US Permanent Residents

  • Green Cards for Immediate Relatives of US Citizens and Permanent Residents

  • Removal of Conditions on Permanent Residents

  • Adjustment of Status

  • Consular Processing

  • US Citizenship and Naturalization

  • VAWA

Case Inquiries and Expediting

Individuals dealing with immigration or visas are often frustrated by long waits and delays. We have strategies for addressing a situation where your case seems to be “stuck.”

Expedite Criteria

USCIS review​s​ all​ expedite requests on a case-by-case basis and requests are granted at the discretion of the office leadership.​ The burden is on the applicant or petitioner to demonstrate that one or more of the e​xpedite criteria have been met.​​

​USCIS may expedite a​ petition or application if it meets one or more of the following criteria:​

  • Severe financial loss to company or ​person​;​

  • Emergency situation;​

  • Humanitarian reasons;​

  • A non-profit organization whose request is in furtherance of the cultural and social interests of the United States​;​

  • Department of Defense or ​n​ational ​i​nterest ​s​ituation (These particular expedite requests must come from an official U.S. government entity and state that delay will be detrimental to the government.);​

  • USCIS error; or​

  • Compelling interest of USCIS.​
