Immigration-old

The immigration processes involves more than just filling out forms, and mistakes can have dramatic impacts on employers, employees, individuals, and families. Let BLG be your guide and advocate. We can help you determine the options available to you, and then work with you to obtain the outcome you want.

Are you an employer trying to bring over a worker with unique skills? Are you trying to open the U.S. affiliate of your foreign company? Are you the loved one of someone who wants to obtain legal status in the U.S.? Whatever your current situation or status, we look forward to discussing ways we can help you accomplish your goals.

Read more about our specific areas of practice below and then contact us to see how we can work for you.

Be sure to read the following Important Information:

  • Never provide false or misleading information on applications or petitions, to consular officers, or in any other stage of the immigration process
  • Always make sure you are filling out the correct and current version of any form
  • It is always better to be safe than sorry, so if you have questions, contact an attorney who practices immigration law
  • Approval of a petition does not guarantee that you will be issued a visa, and having a visa does not itself guarantee entry into the United States, so don’t make final travel plans or buy tickets until you have a visa, and don’t do anything major like sell your house until you have actually been admitted
  • With some exceptions, spouses and unmarried minor children may apply for the same visa category as you (the person receiving the primary visa) in order to accompany or join you; you will have to show that you will be able to financially support them in the U.S.
  • Unless your visa gets canceled or revoked, it is valid until its expiration date. This means that if you have gotten a new passport but your valid visa is in your expired passport, you can (& should) bring both passports for travel and admission to the U.S.
