Achieving The American Dream Through Family And Employment-Based Immigration Law

For many, the pursuit of the American dream can feel like a distant vision, especially when faced with the complexities of immigration law. Family- and employment-based immigration are two of the most common and promising pathways to life in the United States. However, the process is a minefield of potential challenges. The right lawyer is essential for successfully traversing this difficult legal terrain.

I’m here to help turn your immigration dreams into reality. When you work with me, Thomas Johnson, you’ll find a Texarkana immigration attorney who is truly committed to your goals of building a life in the United States. I understand the intricacies of immigration law, and I am passionate about supporting you through this significant life transition.

Your Family’s Path To A New Beginning

Family-based immigration allows U.S. citizens and green card holders to sponsor certain relatives for lawful permanent residence in the United States. Immediate relatives of U.S. citizens – spouses, minor children and parents – can take advantage of a simpler, more straightforward route to a green card (lawful permanent residence). Other relatives fall into different preference categories, which can mean longer wait times and more complicated procedures.

I can help you evaluate your options for sponsoring a family member. If you already have legal immigration status, the process might involve pursuing an adjustment of status in the U.S., or it might entail consular processing abroad. Both journeys involve extensive paperwork, strict deadlines and an immigration interview, among other steps.

Marriage to a U.S. citizen is another common route for immigration that comes with its own set of complexities. As a skilled immigration lawyer, I can provide comprehensive support and guidance through every step. I’ll handle every detail with care to facilitate a swift and successful outcome.

Securing Your Future Through Employment-Based Opportunities

Employers looking to sponsor employees for a green card must adhere to rigorous criteria. This path can lead to promising opportunities for those who qualify.

The law establishes numerous employment-based visas, each designed to address specific needs and circumstances. They include:

  • H-1B visas for specialty occupations
  • L-1 visas for intracompany transferees
  • O visas for individuals with extraordinary ability or achievement
  • E visas for treaty traders and investors
  • TN visas for NAFTA professionals

I am well-equipped to assist both employers and employees in the Ark-La-Tex region with the employment-based immigration process. My experience spans a wide range of employers and industries across the country.
