US Visa & US Immigration.

There are two main visa categories in the US immigration system.
Immigrant visas (IV ) and non-immigrant visa (NIV). Individuals who wish to immigrate to the USA and reside in that country permanently apply for immigrant visas.  Immigrant visas can be based on employment or family sponsorship.

We can assist you with your family based petitions and other types of petitions.  We can help you obtain your legal permanent residence status (commonly known as a Green Card) in the USA.

Individuals who wish to be in the USA on a temporary basis be it for work, tourism, studies, medical treatment etc…may apply for a temporary visa.  There are many different kinds of US non-immigrant visas.

Make sure you hire a US licensed lawyer – Lawyers who offer US immigration services must be licensed to practice law in the USA.  In Ontario, they must also obtain a license as a foreign legal consultant in order to be allowed to provide foreign legal advice in Ontario.   Negar Achtari is a member of the NY bar and a foreign legal consultant in Ontario.

US Waivers

Have you been refused entry to the USA?  You may be inadmissible to enter the USA. Understanding the determination process and your options to overcome this obstacle is very important.

There are many reasons a person may be ineligible to cross the US border. Having a criminal record for a variety of crimes such as are murder, manslaughter, rape, theft, bribery, forgery, aggravated battery, prostitution, and fraud…can make an individual inadmissible to the USA. Having a communicable disease; having been previously deported from the USA or having broken US immigration laws can also render an individual inadmissible to the USA.

You may be eligible to apply for a waiver, which is a lengthy process. Negar Achtari is a licensed attorney and a member of the NY state bar and is qualified in the province of Ontario to assist with US immigration matters including US waivers.
