IMMIGRATION LAW

Green Cards or Lawful Permanent Residency
A green card or I-551 may be obtained in a number of ways.  If you qualify, you may apply for a green card either through family-based immigration or employment-based immigration. A large number of applications I handle come from family-based immigration applications. Often a citizen or green card holder will want to bring over their spouse, children, siblings, or parents. If that is your goal, then this may be the option for you.

Citizenship
Generally, if a current green card holder satisfies the requirements and has held a green card for at least the last five years, then you may be eligible to apply for United States Citizenship.

Visas
Visas are documents that allow non-citizens to lawfully enter and visit the United States. There are quite a few visa categories.  Each visa category is designated for a certain type of visitor.  If you wish to apply for a visa or have questions about your current visa status please contact me for more information.

Deferred Action
On June 15, 2012 the Secretary of Homeland Security announced that certain people who came to the US as children and who also meet several key requirements and guidelines may request consideration of deferred action for a period of two years, subject to renewal, and would then be eligible for work authorization.  To learn more about Deferred Action please click here. If you have questions regarding your own status please either submit a question here or email me at andrew@chung-law.com.

Asylum
If you have suffered persecution or have a fear that you will suffer persecution due to your Race, Religion, Nationality, Membership in a particular social group, or Political Opinion, then you may have a case for Asylum.  If you are eligible for asylum then you will be permitted to remain in the Untied States.

Starting a business can be one of the most exciting things a person can do.  But sometimes the decisions during the planning stages of creating a business can create huge hurdles for prospective business owners.  Knowing which entity to select is one of these hurdles.  Each entity classification has various requirements and offers various protections from liability.
