Temporary Stays on Non-Immigrant Visas
International visitors add greatly to our nation’s cultural, educational and economic life, and we continue the proud tradition of welcoming visitors to the United States, with secure borders and open doors. Many citizens of Canada and Visa Waiver Program countries may visit the U.S. without a visa if they meet certain requirements. For other foreign citizens, a nonimmigrant visa is necessary to enter the country, whether coming for tourism, medical treatment, or a business-based immigration reason such as for temporary work.
We can assist you through the process of obtaining a visa in any of the following areas. If you later decide you want to stay in the U.S. permanently, it may be possible to obtain a green card for lawful permanent residence through an adjustment of status proceeding.
- B-1 Temporary visitor for business
- B-2 Temporary visitor for pleasure (tourist visa)
- E-1 Treaty Trader, including spouse and children

Immigrant Visas for Permanent Residence
Immigrating to the United States to live here permanently is an important and complex decision. Our immigration attorneys can help you identify the appropriate visa and understand the requirements and supporting documents you will need to apply to immigrate to the U.S. In most cases, you will need to be sponsored by a U.S. citizen or lawful permanent resident, such as a prospective employer or a relative if immigrating for a family-based reason. There are different rules and procedures for immigrating depending upon whether you are already in the U.S. or are filing from abroad. We can help you through the process of obtaining lawful permanent residence through the following methods:
- Immediate Relatives Immigration Visa
- Special Immigrants
- Family-sponsored Immigration Visa
