Our Comprehensive Approach to Family Immigration Petitions

Family immigration petitions are a fundamental part of our practice, and we approach these matters with the care and attention they deserve. Here is a step-by-step overview of our process when taking on a family immigration case:

  1. Initial Consultation: This is our first meeting, where we learn about your case, the specifics of your situation, and your ultimate immigration goals. This consultation allows us to assess how we can best assist you.

  2. Case Evaluation: Once we understand your needs, we evaluate your case thoroughly, consider potential issues and solutions, and develop a strategic plan tailored specifically for you. This includes identifying the right type of petition or application and ensuring you meet the eligibility criteria.

  3. Petition Preparation: We will assist you in preparing the necessary petition, such as Form I-130, Petition for Alien Relative, or other appropriate applications. Our expertise ensures that all paperwork is filled out accurately and comprehensively to avoid unnecessary delays or rejections.

  4. Documentation Collection: We will help you gather all necessary supporting documents for your petition, such as proof of relationship, financial documents, or other relevant records. We understand what immigration authorities look for and can guide you to gather compelling evidence.

  5. Petition Submission: We submit the immigration petition and any supplemental forms to the appropriate U.S. immigration authorities. Our firm manages all correspondence and communication with these authorities on your behalf.

  6. Case Monitoring and Updates: After the submission, we closely monitor the progress of your case, keeping you updated about any developments. We ensure that any requests for additional evidence are addressed promptly and efficiently.

  7. Interview Preparation: If required, we will prepare you for the immigration interview, guiding you on what to expect, providing potential questions, and coaching on how to respond effectively and confidently.

  8. Approval and Follow-up: Upon approval of the petition, we guide you through the subsequent steps, which may include consular processing or adjusting status. We continue to provide support until your family member has successfully immigrated.
