Individual Immigration

Immigration for Individuals can mean exploring immigration options for an individual under several immigration scenarios and we invite you to explore these further in the website:

  • Business immigration options for the Individual
    • Temporary or permanent visas for businesspeople or investors
    • Portability provisions for H-1Bs
    • New immigration options if going through a divorce and the prior business visa will no longer allow derivative status
    • Moving a child out of derivative status into Student Status or another status
  • Family immigration involves identifying the U.S. relative who can sponsor the foreign individual, and then submitting two-step paperwork for a green card (or, just for a temporary visa.) The categories of family sponsored green cards are:
    • Immediate Relatives: Parents, spouses and children (under 18) of U.S. citizens
    • Unmarried adult sons and daughters of U.S. citizens
    • Spouses and children of Green Card holders
    • Married sons and daughters of U.S. citizens
    • Brothers and Sisters of U.S. citizens (a category that may soon be eliminated by law)
  • Obtaining US Citizenship
    • Do you need to submit your citizenship application? We are currently processing naturalization filings for current green card holders.
    • As the grandchild of a US citizen

An individual may call us with a request for a family-based green card.  After a consultation, they may find that waiting years for the particular green card is unnecessary.  Or, they may leave our offices with a two-pronged strategy: a temporary visa under business-immigration categories and a later-occurring green card through the family member.

The lawyers of Lang Wallace utilize knowledge, skill and experience to strategize the best temporary visa and green card options for individuals.  We ask questions to

  • obtain the right temporary visa to the United States
  • assist with the preparation of documents for the visa
  • track the expiration dates
  • plan for a green card that best suits the situation

In a strategy meeting, factor in:

  • timing/speed until you are using the visa on US soil
  • ability to change status
  • ability to travel through pendency and use of the visa
  • ability to move to a green card, if needed
  • work options for the spouse and children
  • children who may “age out” of derivative status at age 21
  • cost.

Our job is to communicate a plan. When you say “ok, let’s start,” you will know your visa options and your odds of navigating through the government’s many pitfalls.
