Demonstrated Experience in Immigration Cases

Our lawyer is well-versed in immigration law and the policies governed by the Immigration and Nationality Act (INA). Immigrant policies change all the time with each new president who is sworn into office – our team remains updated on these changes and can help you if your loved one is trying to obtain an immigrant visa. Uniting your family is our top priority.

We have demonstrated experience handling the following types of immigration cases:

  • Family-based immigration: One of the main ways people can immigrate to the United States to be with family members is through marriage. A K-1 fiancé visa, for instance, allows you to remain in the U.S. for 90 days to get married and apply for a green card, or permanent residency. However, getting a coveted green card can be complex, and immigrants must go through a rigorous marriage interview with the United States Citizenship and Immigration Services (USCIS). Among other services, our attorney can work with you to file paperwork and prepare you for your interview.
  • Business-based immigration: The U.S. offers various options to people who wish to invest in its economy. Establishing a business is a common way for people to immigrate and settle in the country, and our attorney can sit down with you to determine what kind of business you have and which visa fits your needs and ambitions.
  • Student-based immigration: International students who decide to come to the United States to study have to follow different rules depending on the student type and education level. For example, international students enrolling at a university or college would apply for a different visa than students enrolling in technical programs at vocational institutions.

With so much at stake, you don’t want to take a chance on losing everything by navigating the system on your own. Call Lara Law Firm to take advantage of our experience and resources.
