Whether it is for work, education, love or a fresh start, foreign nationals need more than just a reason to come to America. Proper documentation and paperwork is necessary for those seeking to temporarily or permanently reside in the U.S. Applying for a visa may seem routine; however, it can be a complex and lengthy process. Depending on the type of visa one seeks, it could require much time and effort.
Because many are excited to come to the United States and hate to be hung up in an administrative process, applicants can easily overlook steps of the process. This can result in missed information, incomplete applications or errors being made. This can cause the process to lengthen. In other cases, it can be confusing as to which visa is most appropriate, causing some immigrants to file for the wrong visa.
At Walker Morton, LLP, our attorneys understand how detailed the visa application process can be. It not only requires an applicant to be eligible for that type of visa but to also have supporting information and documentation for that specific type of visa. Whether that is a job offer, acceptance at an educational institution, engagement to a U.S. citizen or evidence of persecution in one's home country, our law firm takes the time to explain the details of the process to our clients.
Even after immigrants are within the U.S., it is possible that additional information or proof is needed. Whether this is to obtain status, renew one's status or to apply for a different type of visa, our attorneys can help you through the process, helping you obtain approval.
