FAMILY-BASED IMMIGRATION

Family-based immigration is one of the most common reasons clients solicit our legal expertise. While many people think that family-based immigration is a simple process that does not require the guidance and counsel of an immigration lawyer, we strongly encourage you to consult with us prior to attempting to file any applications or petitions with USCIS pro se. SHG attorneys have vast experience with the family-based immigration process and so does the rest of the team at SHG Law. SHG Law can help you file for adjustment of status, file to have the conditions of permanent residence removed, and represent individuals who are victims of domestic violence self-petition for immigration benefits in the United States.

We also have a growing consular practice that assists individuals in the United States petition for immigrant visas for their relatives abroad seeking to immigrate to the United States. This includes the successful filing of I-601 and I-212 waivers at consulates abroad which enable otherwise inadmissible individuals to return to the United States in order to be reunited with their families. We also have experience in assisting HIV+ individuals, individuals with tuberculosis, individuals with mental disabilities, and other individuals who are considered inadmissible on public health grounds obtain waivers that permit them to enter the United States as immigrants and remain here as permanent residents.

As with our other services, we strive to provide our family-based immigration clients with cost-effective, honest representation. One of the benefits of utilizing our firm’s services to complete the family-based immigration process is knowing that our attorneys will appraise you of the areas in your case that require particular attention and explanation so that when you or your relatives appear before a USCIS or Consular Officer, you will be well-prepared and your interview will proceed as smoothly as possible.
