Immigrating to the United States is rarely easy, whether you are sponsoring an employee, coming to the United States to start a business or take a job, or attempting to join your family. Forms must be carefully completed and submitted to the correct immigration office, or else you may lose your place in the long line of applicants. Interviews must be prepared for and successfully completed. Medical exams are often necessary, as are statements of financial support from employers or family members.
Without the assistance of an experienced and professional immigration attorney, it is all too easy to make a mistake in the application or other paperwork that could cause months - or even years - of delay, or worse, outright denial. Do not risk the success of your immigration plans! I have over 25 years of experience helping immigrants, their families, and employers - and I can help you through the immigration process with maximum cost efficiency and minimal headaches. To get started, call the Law Office of Paul D. Cass in Los Angeles today for a consultation.
I handle applications for both nonimmigrant visas (temporary visas) and immigrant visas to obtain permanent residency (known as Green Cards). Visas and Green Cards can be obtained for work or family reasons, and I can analyze your situation and help you determine which route better fits your circumstances.
Business visas are often the best option for several types of immigrants, including for example:
Foreign students who are graduating and want to work in the United States
Foreign citizens who want to start a U.S. company or invest in an existing company
U.S. companies that want to transfer a foreign citizen employee to a U.S. location
Being apart from your family can cause great emotional strain and sometimes financial pressure as well. U.S. immigration law allows some family members of U.S. citizens or permanent residents to join their families in the United States. The family immigration process can take a long time, and several different petitions and other applications are required. As an experienced family immigration lawyer, I can help smooth the way and improve your chances of successfully reuniting your family.
I follow the lives of my past clients after I have succeeded in getting visas or Green Cards for them to stay in or come to the United States. After the required amount of time has passed, many of my former clients return to me for advice and representation as they consider going through the naturalization and citizenship process. I provide knowledgeable information about U.S. citizenship requirements, fill out the required paperwork, and help my clients prepare for the interview. This is not an area where "DIY" is recommended. There are many pitfalls for the unwary. If you are concerned about your eligibility for U.S. citizenship, I recommend consulting an immigration and citizenship attorney.
After we decide together how to proceed, I can do all the required investigations and applications on your behalf. I can:
Complete and file necessary applications and petitions
Represent the employee at any required interviews
Verify the qualifications of a foreign citizen who is a potential employee
Oversee the labor certification process (PERM)
Perform compliance checks for a business that employs foreign citizens
Assist with change-of-status applications from one nonimmigrant category to another, or adjustment to permanent residency status; or with visa processing
H-1B, H-2, and H-3 visas
O and P visas TN(NAFTA) visas
National Interest Waivers
EB-1 permanent residency applications
EB-2 permanent residency applications
