Deportation Defense

Lim Law – Central Florida & Orlando Immigration Lawyers

The possibility of deportation or ‘removal’ from the United States feels terrifying for many people living in the United States. Under US immigration law, deportation follows a process and there are avenues to seek relief if you immediately contact an experienced immigration attorney. Your attorney will be able to guide you through the process and fight on your behalf during deportation proceedings.

Employment Visas

When starting the application process, one must obtain a labor certification approval from the Department of Labor. Once you have received the certification approval, you must file a Form I-140 (Immigrant Petition for Alien Worker).

Family-Based Visas

Lim Law – Central Florida & Orlando Immigration Lawyers

At their best, U.S. immigration laws grant opportunities to reunite families and to bring family members to the United States. As a U.S. citizen or lawful permanent resident, you may be able to sponsor relatives living in another country to receive family visas and immigrate to the United States.

Marriage & Fiancée Visas

Lim Law – Central Florida & Orlando Immigration Lawyers

Investors Visas

Lim Law – Central Florida & Orlando Immigration Lawyers

Citizens of foreign countries who wish to enter the United States must first obtain a visa; either a nonimmigrant visa for a temporary stay, or an immigrant visa for permanent residence. Treaty Trader (E-1) and Treaty Investor (E-2) visas are for citizens of countries with which the United States maintains treaties of commerce and navigation.

Visa Extension

Lim Law – Central Florida & Orlando Immigration Lawyers

The Department of State issues nonimmigrant visas to many foreign nationals seeking a temporary stay in the United States. The length of time you are permitted to stay depends on your nonimmigrant visa classification, but in many cases, you can apply for an extension of your stay. When you enter the United States, U.S. Customs and Border Protection creates a Form I-94, your Arrival-Departure Record. If you enter the country by land, you will receive a paper copy; at air and sea border entry points, this form has been automated.

President Obama’s new provisional waivers system took effect March 4, 2013, for immediate relatives of U.S. citizens.  Immediate relatives are described as children and spouses of U.S. citizens.  Although parents of U.S citizens are also immediate relatives, they are not yet eligible for this new provisional waiver.
