If you qualify you can file a petition for your spouse while he or she is in the United States. Our office will review your situation, in complete detail, to make sure that your case can be approved. If your case has problem areas we will notify you of these areas. We will obtain all of the required supporting evidence and prepare your documents for you. Your documents will be filed in Chicago. You will then receive a receipt notice letting you know that your case is being processed. In a couple of months you will be notified of an appointment for the immigrant to be fingerprinted. This is so a background check may be done. An interview will be scheduled for both you and your spouse at the local USCIS office. We will completely prepare you for this interview.. If you live in Northern California you should expect to have your interview in Sacramento or San Francisco. The interviewer will be very thorough and will likely go over the complete immigration history of the immigrant. She will also be trying to determine if the marriage is bona fide. These cases are reviewed in detail by immigration officers who want to make sure that the marriage is legitimate and that there are no other grounds for denying the case.

Trying to convince the immigration authorities that you and your spouse deserve to live together in the United States can be a frustrating process.
There are many bureaucratic hoops and hurdles to jump through.

We help clients navigate the often intimidating and complex maze of bureaucracy to help you check off this important box and get on with your life.
U.S. citizenship doesn’t come along with a U.S. spouse.
You’d think that as an exemplary U.S. citizen you have every right to decide whom you should marry. Then you’d expect that the U.S. government will honor your decision on whom to marry. The reality is often different.
Thousands of green cards and marriage visa applications get rejected every year due to simple mistakes or omissions, or for other trivial reasons. You don’t want that to happen to you!
The U.S. Immigration Law is a specialized area, and it’s confusing, especially if you have no real hands-on experience – as we do.
Let us be your partner through this complex process.
Over the past two decades we have seen it all. We have also learned how to deal with difficult bureaucrats and avoid unnecessary delays so that you can live with your spouse like every other normal couple in the United States.
Every day we prepare green card petitions for couples who want to live together in this great country. We have assisted clients from China, the Philippines, Mexico, Canada, Australia, India, Pakistan and countries throughout Europe, Asia and the Middle East.
The Attorneys who will work on your case each have a minimum of 20 years’ experience handling green card cases and marriage visas. If you want fast results – it makes sense to partner with us!
We deal with individual cases only. We are not in the business of churning out a high-volume business. We understand that even though the process may be similar, every case is different, and it needs to be approached with diligence and meticulous care.
Our Basic Package is about half what many law firms will charge for the same work. We do things expertly so you don’t have to worry about making a mistake, which will delay your case. We offer a low flat fee with a low monthly payment plan for clients who don’t have the upfront cash.
Of course, we’re not able to help everyone, and that’s why we encourage you to pick up the phone to find out if we can help you.
This first step is free and you are under no obligation to hire us.

Basically, you have four options if you want to qualify for a Green Card based on Marriage to a U.S. Citizen:
Option #1: You can pick up the forms from U.S. Citizenship and Immigration Services (USCIS) and try to tackle the mountain of confusing paperwork yourself. If you’re taking this route, be aware that there are hidden traps which could cause serious problems for your spouse.
Option #2: If you’re a book mole, read all the best textbooks on the subject (may take months to go through the best ones), and leap into the application process with the faith that everything will be all right. The only problem here is that textbooks provide generic advice that can be outdated simply because the immigration laws change. Also, every case is different and what worked in one case may not work in your case.
Option #3: You can save a little bit of money by hiring a paralegal to handle your case. The probem is that your paralegal may or may not have formal training, may not be regulated and may or may not have any relevant experience. We are regulated by the State Bar of California, have insurance, and have 20 years of experience handling these types of cases.
Option #4: Let us handle all of the headaches for you. We will walk you through the maze of U.S. immigration law and tell you, in plain English, what’s relevant and important in your case. Most importantly, we’ll help you identify any potential issues and weaknesses in your case and figure out how together we can overcome them. We will make sure your spouse gets his or her green card without any problems or hassles. We will do this at a very fair price which will allow you to sleep well as you go through the process.
