It’s difficult to be separated from your spouse and children, especially when they are thousands of miles and oceans away with no means to change the situation. Our immigration attorney helps parents, spouses, and unmarried children—sons and daughters—unite in the United States with a CR-2/IR-2 visa. A CR-2 visa is the same as an IR-2 visa, with a minor exception. A child receives a CR-2 visa if the parent has a CR-1 visa, which means the parents have been married for less than two years.
A child receives an IR-2 visa if the parent gets an IR-1 visa, which is suitable for parents that have been married for more than two years. Our attorney determines your and your child’s eligibility to streamline the application process and help you prepare and file the appropriate visa based on your marriage status.
Fiancé visas make marriage in the United States possible with the help of our immigration legal services. Sadri Law, PC helps international couples—foreign-born and U.S. citizens—prepare and file for a temporary fiancé visa so they can marry in the United States within 90 days. After 90 days, the fiancé visa expires. After the wedding, a foreign spouse can apply for permanent residence or a green card.
Most couples that apply for a fiancé visa are successful when they use an experienced immigration attorney, such as Sadri Law, PC. There are reasons for rejection and denial, such as income requirements or prior marriage. We make sure any bumps in the road, big or small, are quickly in the rearview.
If you and your spouse want to become husband and wife, consider a fiancé visa and retain the help of our experienced immigration attorney.

A: : A foreign person can become an LPR and, potentially, a U.S. citizen with the help of a marriage visa. U.S. citizens—also known as sponsors or green card holders—can bring their foreign spouses to the United States after marriage in one of three ways: CR-1 visa, IR-1 visa, or K-3 visa. Couples must qualify for a marriage visa first, and our attorney will help determine your and your spouse’s eligibility. Our lawyer will collect the necessary information from you to complete forms, collect the filing fee, compile the petition and submit it to the United States Citizenship and Immigration Services (USCIS) for processing.
A: Naturalization is the process by which U.S. citizenship is granted to a lawful permanent resident (LPR) after three years if you are married to a U.S. citizen or five years. Once a person becomes a U.S. citizen through the naturalization process, they cannot be deported, nor can citizenship be taken away. They are technically U.S. citizens and share the same rights as Americans. However, there are limited exceptions to this rule if an immigrant was naturalized illegally, convicted of a crime, or dishonorably discharged, to name a few examples. An immigrant can face deportation or denaturalization without proper legal representation.
A: A temporary work visa is suitable for foreign folks who want to enter the U.S. for employment. Individuals who also want to come to the U.S. for educational purposes or travel will benefit from a temporary visa. They last for a fixed period compared to permanent work visas. Temporary visas typically last up to three years and cover fixed-term employment, task-based contracts, or seasonal and casual work. There are several steps you must take to secure employment authorization. We help you apply for immigration status, prepare a form I-765 and submit the application for processing. It can take anywhere from two to seven months to receive approval.
A: If you are trying to bring your children to the U.S., a CR-2 or IR-2 visa is the right option. An IR-2 visa allows unmarried foreign children of U.S. citizens—under the age of 21—to migrate to the United States. This includes biological and adopted children. A child receives an IR-2 visa if the parent gets an IR-1 visa, which means the parents have been married for more than two years. A child gets a CR-2 visa if the parents have a CR-1 visa, which means they have been married for less than two years. We can determine your child’s eligibility and get them to the U.S.
A: The Violence Against Women Act (VAWA) gives victims of abuse—spouses, children, and parents of U.S. citizens 21 years or older—a second chance and an opportunity to stay in the U.S. free of violence. A VAWA self-petition allows victims to file for citizenship on their own and without the help of their abusive spouse. Individuals who have suffered abuse from a U.S. citizen or lawful permanent resident (LPR) can file a self-petition if they have lived in the U.S. for at least three years. We help you substantiate your claims and prove they were subjected to extreme cruelty and abuse.
A: With the right blend of skills, education, and work experience—or a combination of these things—immigrants can live and work in the United States indefinitely with a permanent work visa. A temporary visa only provides a fixed period for a person to work in the U.S. There are five employment-based categories people fall under, including EB-1 visa, EB-2 visa, EB-3 visa, EB-4 visa, and EB-5 visa. We help professors, individuals with advanced degrees, skilled or unskilled professionals, religious workers, and investors qualify for a permanent work visa, prepare and file, so they can live and work in the United States doing what they love.
A: People that flee a country are running from danger. They are often referred to as refugees or asylum seekers. Asylum is a form of protection in the United States offered to refugees seeking relief from ongoing wars, drought, tension over religious beliefs, violence, issues regarding sexual orientation, and much more. Asylum ensures that refugees are not deported back to a dangerous place, and with the help of our immigration attorneys, we can make sure that doesn’t happen. Victims with proof of mistreatments, such as harassment, prosecution, and other violent acts, are likely eligible for asylum and must contact our offices to get immediate legal protection.
