DIFFERENT VISAS TO FIT DIFFERENT NEEDS
There are about 185 different types of visas, but in general, there are two main categories of United States visas, immigrant and non-immigrant. An immigrant visa is issued to a person who wishes to permanently live in the United States. At the Law Offices of David A. Breston, our immigration visa attorneys and staff are qualified to assist you, your loved ones, or your future employees while applying for any of the following types of immigrant visas:
Having a green card makes you a permanent resident of the United States, and it is the first step towards becoming a naturalized citizen. There are several ways you can obtain a green card:
- You may be sponsored by a family member or an employer to get permanent resident status. This is the most common avenue for obtaining a green card.
- If you faced persecution in your home country, or have a reasonable fear of future persecution, you may be eligible for a green card through asylum.
There are several documents you will need to get your green card, from medical documents to affidavits of support. The filing process even changes depending on your personal circumstances. It is best to consult an expert so your application is accepted the first time.
An employer may petition to bring immigrant employees into the United States to perform necessary job functions. First, an employer must obtain permission from the U.S. Labor Department. Prospective employees are categorized based on their job function and assigned a priority date. Because there are so many forms to fill out during each step of the process, it is best to have the help of an employment immigration attorney. If you have a spouse or children, they will also have to fill out visa applications to make the move with you.
If you are a U.S. citizen or lawful permanent resident, you can apply for one of several types of family visas. These are meant for spouses, children, parents, or siblings. There are also fianceé visas available. At David A. Breston Law Firm, we understand how anxious you are to be back together with your family. Because petitions differ depending on the kind of family member you are trying to sponsor, it is important to make sure you are filling out the right forms. We can help you reunite with your loved ones as quickly as possible.
