(i.e., Temporary Visas)
Nonimmigrant visas are temporary in nature. While B (visitor visa), F (student), J (exchange visitor), K (fiancé), L (intracompany transfer), O (outstanding or extraordinary ability), and TN (treaty NAFTA) are some of the most popular, our firm handles all of the above and everything in between.
(i.e., Permanent Residency)
Immigrant Visas are either family-based or employment-based and may either obtained in the client’s home country (i.e., Consular Processing) or while they are already in the U.S. (Adjustment of Status).
Once one has been a permanent resident for a particular period of time, they may apply to become a Citizen of the United States. This is called naturalization. Citizenship may also be automatically acquired at birth or derivatively through the U.S. Citizenship of one or both parents.
The Removal/Deportation process is fast and harsh. Overstaying a temporary visa or a violation of the rules of permanent residency (for example, a criminal conviction) may cause the institution of Removal Proceedings. Experienced counsel is a must. Slepian Law will defend you against the Department of Homeland Security and the U.S. Immigration Courts.
