Deportation & Removal
Do not hesitate to get representation to defend against an impending deportation or removal action against you or a loved one! The Department of Homeland Security deports more than half a million aliens every year, but you may not have to be one of them. You can vastly improve your chances of staying in this country by hiring a lawyer from our firm.

Family Immigration
Let our team assist you with the challenge of bringing your loved ones to live with you in the United States with a family-based immigrant visa. Whether you want to bring your fiancé with a K visa, need an alien-spouse immigrant visa, or are hoping to bring other close relatives to this country, we are ready to help you!

Employment Immigration
The Immigration and Nationality Act provides an annual quota of 140,000 employment-based immigrant visas, with categories including the EB-1 priority worker, EB-2 professional, EB-3 skilled or professional worker, EB-4 special immigrant and EB-5 immigrant investor. These visas are in high demand, so it is wise to hire an attorney to assist you with your application.

Temporary Worker Visas
In the event that you only need to come to the United States for a limited period of time in order to conduct business or perform temporary employment, we can assist you with applying for an H-1B specialty occupation visa, H-2B seasonal visa, H-2A seasonal agricultural visa, E1 treaty trader or E2 treaty investor, L1 intracompany transferee, or other types of visas.

Green Cards
If you want to stay legally in the United States and perhaps even pursue citizenship, you will need to apply for lawful permanent resident status. Once you have a green card, you will be able to go about building your future in this country with the certainty that you will be able to remain here, in addition to being able to assist your loved ones with immigrating from abroad.

Nonimmigrant Visas
Unless you are able to take advantage of the Visa Waiver Program (VWP), you will have to apply for a visa before you can enter the United States. Even if you are able to use the VWP, you must get a visa if you plan to remain in this country for 90 days or more. Our clients apply for nonimmigrant visas for the purposes of travel, business, education and more.

Asylum or Refugee Immigration
The United States government makes special exception in immigration cases in which the individual is fleeing persecution in his or her country of origin or fears such persecution in the event that he or she is deported back to that country. We may be able to help you apply for relief under refugee or asylee status.

Naturalization & Citizenship
Countless people from around the globe dream of coming to the United States and becoming American citizens, but only a relatively small number of these people's petitions are approved. We can assist you with preparing your application and getting ready for your tests, as well as representing you with the authorities from U.S. Citizenship and Immigration Services.

Criminal Defense & Immigration
A criminal conviction can have devastating consequences for anyone, but the situation can be far more serious for a green card holder or an individual who is in this country on a nonimmigrant visa. A conviction may lead to deportation, but by fighting the charges or perhaps appealing a conviction, you can seek to remain in this country.

Family Law & Immigration
Family law issues have the potential to cause serious problems for your immigration status, whether you are accused of domestic violence or are seeking custody of your children in a divorce. We approach such issues with the necessary sensitivity, while also fighting to protect our clients' interests.

Why Hire a Fairfax Immigration Lawyer

You are not legally required to retain legal representation to assist you with any type of immigration case, but it is nearly always in your best interest to do so. United States immigration law is notoriously complex, and a large percentage all applications submitted for immigrant and nonimmigrant visas, lawful permanent resident status, and naturalization are denied. While some denials are based on the fact that the petition simply was not valid, many are the result of simple errors or omissions on the part of the applicant.

By hiring an attorney from the outset of the process, you can greatly improve your chances of success, since we can help you prepare your petition and ensure that it includes all of the relevant information. We also can represent you in an appeal in the event that your application is wrongfully denied. To learn more about how we can help, contact us now for an initial consultation.
