Columbus Immigration Attorneys for Visas
Need Help Obtaining a Visa? 70+ Years of Legal Experience
U.S. visas give foreign citizens permission to legally visit, work and live in the United States for a specified period of time. There are a number of different visa types available, according to the visitor's status and purpose. While immigrant visas are given to those seeking to permanently work and reside in the United States, non-immigrant visas are intended to allow individuals to visit the country temporarily under specific conditions. From immigration to non-immigration visas, we can help you petition for the right status for your unique needs. Our Columbus visa lawyers can provide informative legal guidance through the application process.
We can help with the attainment of non-immigrant visas, including:
- B-1: Temporary travelers with business-related purposes
- B-2: Short-term business, tourism, or pleasure
- E: Citizens from treaty countries whose purpose in visiting is related to trade and commerce
- F, M: Student or academic
- H-1B: "Specialty occupation" workers, whose jobs require highly specialized knowledge and education, or who are involved in governmental research and development projects concerning the U.S. and another country
- H-2(A or B): Temporary worker
- J: Student exchange
- K: Fiancés and spouses of U.S. citizens
- L: Intracompany transferees of multinational corporations
- O: Individuals who possess extraordinary ability or have made significant achievements and are visiting for the purpose of performing or demonstrating their work
- P: Internationally recognized artists, athletes, or entertainers who are visiting for purposes relating to their work
There are also numerous categories of immigrant visas; those eligible include the spouses and fiancés of U.S. citizens, adopted children of U.S. citizens, certain family members of U.S. citizens and lawful permanent residents, and employees of U.S. employers. Obtaining a visa requires the completion and submission of the appropriate applications and petitions to the U.S. Citizenship and Immigration Service. These filings are often complex, requiring legal briefs, multiple exhibits and extensive documentation.
