Immigrant Visa Lawyer in Houston

Qualified Houston Immigration Attorneys

Before traveling to the United States, a person from a foreign country is generally required to obtain a non-immigrant visa for a temporary stay or an immigrant visa for permanent residence. The purpose of the travel will dictate the type of visa needed to enter the U.S. At Sebastian Simon Law Group, our Houston immigration attorneys can help you obtain the proper visa for your specific needs.

Having a U.S. visa allows you to travel to an entry point into the U.S. and request permission from the Department of Homeland Security (DHS) Customs and Border Protection (CBP) inspector to enter the U.S. Your visa doesn't guarantee entry into the country, but it does show that you received eligibility from a U.S. Embassy or Consulate abroad. DHS/CBP inspectors are responsible for letting travelers into the U.S. for a specified time period.

Eligibility for a Permanent Visa

An immigrant visa for permanent residence in the U.S. requires that the person be eligible for immigration based on:

Cases of special immigrants include those who are translators, persons working on behalf of the government, or are part of the Diversity Visa Program. Individuals in this program come from a country that has a low rate of immigration to the U.S. This type of immigrant visa generally requires an approved petition filed with the U.S. Citizen and Immigration Services.

Immigrants have become a staple in the creation of intellectual property and businesses in the United States. Bringing your family or self to the United States is an exciting endeavor, but it can be a difficult process. Our firm can help you pursue a visa that is right for your situation.

For legal assistance with an immigrant visa, please talk to our Houston immigrant visa attorneys about the specifics of your immigration situation.

Success Stories

"We helped a client get his case approved based on marriage (USC wife petitioned for Mexican husband). The case was initially denied when he applied on his own. USCIS thought they didn't have enough proof of cohabitation. In addition, there were discrepancies during the initial interview. USCIS was claiming marriage fraud. Attorney Sebastian Simon refiled everything, went to the interview and case got approved."
