Immigration Information

Decades of combined experience allow the Frager Law Firm to smoothly guide its clients through immigration procedures and to provide immigration assistance.

Applying for the correct type of visa is crucial for approval, and once in the United States, many individuals need to understand their obligations so they can stay and become eligible for permanent residency or citizenship. Employers need counsel and strategy to take advantage of foreign employment resources while at the same time safeguarding their businesses through proper regulatory compliance.

Significant immigration law changes

Since the Immigration and Nationality Act (INA) was passed by Congress in 1952, many new immigration laws have come into existence. The Department of Homeland Security (DHS) was created in 2002 to protect the country against terrorist attacks. Under the DHS Act, the Bureau of U.S. Citizenship and Immigration Services (USCIS) replaced the Immigration and Naturalization Service (INS). Immigration reform heightened after 9/11 and is still undergoing changes.

Getting immigration help to comply and adhere to immigration laws can mean the difference between families reuniting or family members being barred from entry or even being removed. Because immigration laws often change, it is wise to seek legal advice when applying for visas, permanent residency or naturalization or when handling any important matter involving immigration.
