Experienced Hawaii Attorneys Handle Visa and Immigration Matters
Honolulu law firm gives people the chance to build a new life in America
Hawaii is a destination for people from around the world, and many choose our state as the perfect place to live and work. However, complex immigration rules can make it difficult to follow through with that choice, requiring experienced advice from a dedicated lawyer. At Migration Counsel in Honolulu, our attorneys are strong supporters of people who want to take advantage of the opportunities in America while enriching our state and culture. As a firm dedicated solely to immigration issues, we have an extensive knowledge of U.S. Citizenship and Immigration Services regulations and the latest legal developments relating to residency, removal, visa, and citizenship issues. With more than two decades of combined experience obtaining successful results for our clients, we look forward to helping you or a loved one achieve the desired outcome.
Our firm helps Hawaii residents reunite in the United States with family members by petitioning for:
- Immigrant visas — We advise relatives on the steps that must be taken if their loved ones wish to pursue U.S. residence, including the application to the American embassy or consulate in their home country.
- Adjustment of status — Someone who is already living here lawfully as a nonimmigrant is eligible to seek a green card if they marry a U.S. citizen. Our firm can help effectuate the adjustment to permanent residency status when this occurs.
- Fiancé/fiancée visas — If you intend to get married to someone who lives in another country, we can help you file Form I-129F so that they can come to the United States within 90 days of the wedding.
For these and all immigration matters, our firm provides a free initial consultation so that you are fully informed of the process before making any decisions.
Our immigration lawyers are familiar with all types of classifications for workers from other countries, including H-1B, E-1, E-2 and L visas. We enable job candidates and employers to identify the best options and help them complete the process that allows them to thrive in the United States and contribute to our economy. Whether you are looking to hire someone with special skills, wish to make an investment in this country, or choose to come here as student, we can help procure the relevant visa.
For many newcomers to our country, attaining U.S. citizenship is the ultimate goal. The naturalization process is long and detailed, but we give clients comprehensive guidance so that they can enjoy the full benefits that America offers. Before you begin, our firm will explain the eligibility requirements and then advise you on each step toward naturalization, including preparation for the interview and civics test.
If you are the subject of a deportation action, we can represent you in matters before the U.S. Immigration Court in Honolulu. Our lawyers are well versed in the law that governs removal cases and can identify available defenses that might allow you to remain in the country. Once you receive your Notice to Appear, prompt action and assistance from a seasoned removal defense lawyer will give you the best chance at a favorable outcome.
