Lawyers in Wake County for Visas, Family Immigration, Citizenship, and Deportation Defense

For over 240 years, the United States of America has promised freedom and opportunities to immigrants from across the globe. While the topic of immigration is often highly politicized, the reality is that many thousands of foreign nationals come to the U.S. each year. Some of them only intend to stay temporarily while others arrive with the intention of building a new life for themselves and their loved ones. Unfortunately, U.S. immigration laws and the process of immigrating to the United States can be extremely complicated and confusing—especially when language barriers exist. The good news is that our team is here to help.

At the Vasquez Law Firm, PLLC, our skilled immigration lawyers have more than 35 years of combined legal experience. Our team has a vast working knowledge of U.S. immigration policies and practices, as well as a professional relationship with the federal agencies tasked with monitoring the immigration process. We work with U.S. Citizenship and Immigration Services (USCIS), U.S. Immigration Customs and Enforcement (ICE), and U.S. Customs and Border Protection, commonly referred to as the Border Patrol. Our goal is to help you and your loved ones enjoy all of the benefits that life in the United States has to offer.

Johnston County Immigration Lawyers Helping to Meet Your Needs

If you are a foreign national who is looking to come to the U.S., you must decide if you intend to remain in the United States temporarily or on a permanent basis. If you are looking to bring a family member to the U.S., you will need to make the same determination for him or her as well. For those whose stay in the U.S. is meant to be temporary, such as students, tourists, and certain workers, a non-immigrant visa will usually meet their needs. If you intend to live and work in the United States permanently, you must apply for an immigrant visa. Once you have an immigrant visa, you can then seek lawful permanent resident status—commonly known as a "green card"—and eventually, full U.S. citizenship. A non-immigrant can also obtain a green card by petitioning for an Adjustment of Status.

The U.S. government makes immigrant visas available for employment-based needs and family-related purposes. The majority of immigrant visas granted in a given year are issued to family members of current U.S. citizens and lawful permanent residents. In most cases, a family-based immigration visa requires the request to be filed and sponsored by a legal citizen or green card holder who is already living in the United States. The specific visa needed will depend on the relationship of the immigrant to the sponsor and other factors. The experienced attorneys at the Vasquez Law Firm, PLLC will work closely with you in determining the right type of visa for your situation, as well as in preparing and filing the application package. We are also equipped to help with appealing visa denials, as needed.
