As a family-based immigration lawyer in Newark and Jersey City, I know that it is heartbreaking to see people make mistakes on their application, and fail. Even a slight error, such as one missing page of documentation, or a single missing stamp can halt the process. Why take chances when there is so much at stake? Call me now.
As your family-based immigration lawyer in Jersey City, my job is to guide you in seeking immigrant status based on your blood relationship to a person who is either a U.S. citizen or a legal permanent resident.
- I can determine if you are eligible for legal permanent residence based on family relationship. Spouses and children are given preference over other relatives, and not all relatives are automatically eligible.
- I will assist your U.S. relative in preparing the Petition for Alien Relative (Form I-130), which must then be approved by the U.S. Citizenship and Immigration Services (USCIS) bureau.
- I will guide you in gathering the required proof of a family relationship.
- I will make sure you know about the required health screening and vaccinations.
Let me – a family-based immigration lawyer in Jersey City – explain how the process works: The citizen or lawful U.S. resident becomes a sponsor to the person seeking immigrant status. Both the sponsor and petitioner must complete and file forms, and gather documentation. Let me take care of this important paperwork. It is arguably the most difficult task in the process: One small missing piece of the puzzle, a careless mistake on a form or less than thorough documentation can cause a petition to be dismissed or delayed. In some cases, a candidate can be permanently barred from entering the United States.
A family-based immigration lawyer in Jersey City handles the alphabet soup of forms: K-1, K-2, K-3, IR1, CR1, I129F, I130, G325A, I134, I864, I485, I693A, etc. These can be intimidating and confusing even to a native-born citizen. If I am your attorney, my job will be to move you and your loved ones as swiftly and error-free through the system as possible, and be there for nerve-racking interviews.
Make sure you work with an experienced family-based immigration lawyer in Jersey City, because there are, unfortunately, scam artists who say they can help. I urge you to be aware that not all attorneys are experienced in this area of law. Also, there are people posing as lawyers, and individuals who say they have legal expertise but do not. Do your homework when hiring an attorney. A knowledgeable and experienced immigration lawyer will have credentials, as well as testimonials from satisfied customers – a lawyer like Eric M. Mark.
I practice as a family-based immigration lawyer in Jersey City and Newark. I realize that the laws change constantly and that every case is unique. Success can depend on something as insignificant as the personality of the official handling a case, and how your attorney deals with him.
