Immigration, Visas, Naturalization
At our firm, we offer a variety of different procedures depending on each client’s unique circumstances. We will work with you and assess your case to ensure you are on the correct path towards acquiring and maintaining status in the United States.
A lawful permanent resident of the United States is eligible to become a US Citizen by applying for naturalization after certain conditions have been met. With us, we will advise you as to whether you are eligible for citizenship, and we can prepare your application.
Certain US Citizens or Permanent residents have the right to petition for qualifying family members to permanently immigrate to the US, and receive their "green card." Contact us to learn which options are available to you.
Another option for acquiring permanent residence is through employment. This route toward a "green card" has a number of options, and it is important to receive advice from an immigration attorney to properly determine which option best suits your professional profile.
Investor Visas (E-1, E-2)
Individuals from countries that have a trade agreement with the United States may qualify for an E category visa with a qualifying investment or business operation within the United States. This Visa allows the individual to remain in the United States to oversee their investment.
Student Visas (F-1)
Aspiring students from other countries may qualify for a student visa, which allows them to remain in the United States during the course of their studies.
One of the first steps towards an employment-based "green card" is to acquire a labor certification. This process is very complex and requires delicacy, and it is very important to consult with an attorney to walk you through the steps. At Ortiz Law Firm, we have the knowledge to ensure you properly proceed with this important step towards your green card.
