At Maghzi Law Firm LLC our immigration attorney in Charleston can help you through all aspects of the immigration process, including immigrant and non-immigrant visas, asylum, adjustment of status, deportation defense, and more. We have helped numerous individuals live and work in the U.S. through employment-based immigration visas obtained by receiving a labor certification approval from the Department of Labor, or family-based immigration where U.S. citizens and lawful permanent residents sponsors certain family members for a visa that provides permanent residence, or a Green Card. Both of these processes have various eligibility requirements.

Our firm can also guide you and your family on the path to citizenship. Naturalization is the process by which U.S. citizenship is granted to a lawful permanent resident after meeting the requirements in the Immigration and Nationality Act.

It can be an extensive process and it often helps to have the assistance of a lawyer who understands it thoroughly.

Why Do People Immigrate to the U.S.?

There are many reasons why individuals and families decide to leave their home country and immigrate to the United States. Below are some common reasons:

  • They are facing persecution in their home country and are seeking asylum
  • Obtaining employment
  • Following opportunities for investment
  • Reuniting with family members

Types of Visas Available in The U.S.

We often receive questions from people who are struggling with the visa application process. There are many different visa designations and figuring out which one is right for your situation can be complicated. There are two different types of visas: non-immigrant visas and immigrant visas.

What Are Non-Immigrant Visas?

Non-immigrant visas are for individuals who plan to travel to the United States temporarily. For example, if you are traveling to the U.S. to attend a university or take a business meeting, you would apply for a non-immigrant visa. There are quite a few different non-immigrant visas available, depending on the reason for your travel.

Common non-immigrant visas include:

  • B-1 visas, used for conducting business
  • B-2 visas, used for tourism or medical services
  • E-2 visas, used for investment purposes
  • F-1 visas, used for academic or language development
  • H-1B visas, used for specialty work

What Is an Immigrant Visa?

Immigrant visas are for people who plan to move to the United States permanently. Suppose you are offered a full-time, permanent job in the U.S. You will need to apply for an immigrant visa. It is also common for people with families already living in the U.S. to apply for immigrant visas so that they can rejoin their families permanently.

Types of immigrant visas include:

  • Diversity visas
  • Employment-based visas
  • Family preference visas
  • Relative visas

Whether you plan to travel to the U.S. permanently or temporarily, the visa application process is quite involved. A lawyer can help you understand eligibility requirements and application fees, prepare and submit all necessary forms and paperwork, and help you prepare for the interview process.
