1. What are the different ways to immigrate to the United States? 

There are five primary ways to immigrate to the U.S. These include being sponsored by a close relative or an employer, entering the diversity visa lottery, applying for immigrant visas for political asylum, and securing visas for investors. Each of these avenues has its own set of requirements and processes, which we can guide you through as your legal counsel. 

2. How long does the immigration process take? 

The immigration process can vary greatly in length, often taking several years. A lot depends on your individual circumstances, including your sponsor's qualifications and the specifics of your case. We're here to help you throughout this process and provide as much clarity as possible. 

3. What is a qualified sponsor? 

A qualified sponsor is typically a close relative who is a U.S. citizen or lawful permanent resident, or a potential employer. The sponsor must meet certain financial and legal requirements to be eligible to sponsor someone for immigration. 

4. Are there any exceptional categories for permanent resident status? 

Yes, there are exceptional categories for individuals who may be eligible for permanent resident status. These include victims of violent crimes or human trafficking and those facing exceptional and extremely unusual hardship. Be sure to consult with us to determine whether you might qualify under these categories.
