Reach out to IMM Solutions LLC for an initial consultation. Your immigration lawyer can help you with your immigration needs by providing the following services.
Knowledge of Immigration Law and Procedures
One of the most critical skills that immigration attorneys provide is their extensive knowledge of immigration law and procedures. Immigration law is complex and constantly changing, and it requires a deep understanding of both federal and state regulations. Immigration attorneys can provide guidance on visa requirements, eligibility criteria, and the application process. They can also advise clients on the various types of immigrant visas available, such as employment-based visas, family-based visas, and humanitarian visas. With their knowledge and expertise, immigration attorneys can help individuals and businesses navigate the complex legal landscape of immigration.
Communication and Language Skills
The immigration attorneys at our Boston office have excellent communication and language skills to effectively represent their clients. Many individuals seeking immigration services may not speak English as their first language, so it is essential that immigration attorneys can communicate effectively in multiple languages. Additionally, immigration attorneys must be able to explain complex legal concepts to their clients in a way that is easy to understand. Good communication skills also help immigration attorneys build strong relationships with clients, understand their needs and concerns, and work collaboratively to achieve their goals.
Assistance with Visa Applications and Petitions
Immigration attorneys can provide valuable assistance with visa applications and petitions. They can help clients prepare and submit visa applications, ensuring that all necessary documents and information are included. This can be especially helpful for individuals and businesses who are not familiar with the application process or who may be unsure of the specific requirements for their particular visa category. Immigration attorneys can also assist with petitions for family members, such as spouses and children, to obtain visas to join their loved ones in the United States.
Representation in Immigration Court Proceedings
Another critical skill that immigration attorneys provide is representation in immigration court proceedings. If an individual is facing removal proceedings or deportation, an immigration attorney can represent them in court and help them navigate the legal system. Immigration attorneys can also assist with other court-related matters, such as bond hearings and appeals. By providing legal representation, immigration attorneys can help their clients protect their rights and achieve the best possible outcome in their cases.
Analytical and Problem-Solving Skills
Your immigration lawyer must possess strong analytical and problem-solving skills to navigate the complex legal landscape of immigration. They must be able to assess the unique circumstances of each case and determine the best course of action for their clients. Immigration attorneys must also be able to anticipate potential problems or obstacles that may arise and develop strategies to address them proactively. These analytical and problem-solving skills enable immigration attorneys to provide effective legal representation and help their clients achieve the best possible outcome in their cases.
Attention to Detail and Organizational Skills
Immigration attorneys must ensure that all required documentation is included in the application and that it is filled out accurately. They must carefully review each document to ensure that it meets the requirements of the relevant immigration agency. Immigration attorneys manage multiple cases simultaneously, each with its own set of requirements and deadlines. They must keep track of deadlines, appointments, and follow-ups to ensure that each case progresses smoothly. Your attorney must be meticulous in their work, paying close attention to even the smallest details. Mistakes can result in delays or denials of applications, so attorneys must take great care to ensure that everything is correct.

U.S. Permanent Resident Card (Green Card)
A green card gives you legal status to live and work anywhere in the United States indefinitely and you are officially known as a lawful permanent resident. Holding a green card is also a necessary step before applying for U.S. citizenship through naturalization.
Depending on your immigration review, we will identify the most suitable pathway to a green card for you. This may be any of the following options:
- Family-based green cards: For close family members of U.S. citizens or Lawful Permanent Residents (LPRs), including spouses, unmarried children under 21, and parents of U.S. citizens.
- Employment-based green cards: For people with a job offer from a U.S. employer, categorized into five types based on job requirements and qualifications.
- Refugee and asylee green cards: For those granted asylum or refugee status in the U.S., including victims of severe human trafficking (T visa), significant physical or mental abuse (U visa), and domestic violence or abuse by a U.S. citizen or permanent resident spouse or parent (VAWA Green Card).
- Diversity lottery green cards: Issued through the Diversity Immigrant Visa Program (Green Card Lottery), selecting applicants from countries with low immigration rates to the U.S..
- Longtime resident green cards: Also known as cancellation of removal, for non-citizens living in the U.S. for a significant period without legal status, meeting specific eligibility requirements.
- Conditional green cards: Issued to foreign nationals who marry a U.S. citizen (CR-1) and have been married for less than two years at the time of application, or to those who meet the qualifying investment amount in the U.S. (EB-5).
Our immigration attorneys in Boston will prepare and submit the necessary forms on your behalf, and handle all the correspondence with the United States Citizenship and Immigration Services (USCIS).
Visas to the U.S.
These are non-immigrant visas issued to individuals who intend to enter the United States for a short, temporary period. Some of the most common U.S. visas we help our clients obtain through immigration representation are:
- B-1/B-2 visa: For business activities (B-1) and tourism or visiting family (B-2)
- F-1 and M-1 visas: For students in academic or vocational programs
- J-1 visa: For exchange visitors, including au pairs, scholars, and interns
- H-1B visa: For professionals in specialized fields requiring a degree
- L-1 visa: For internal company transfers of managers or specialized staff
- O-1 visa: For individuals with exceptional skills in various fields
- TN/TD visa: For NAFTA professional workers from Mexico and Canada
- E-2 visa: For investors from treaty countries investing in U.S. businesses
- K-1 visa: For foreign fiancé(e)s of U.S. citizens to marry in the U.S.
Naturalization and Citizenship
Naturalization is the legal process through which a non-U.S. citizen voluntarily becomes an American citizen. It is the most direct way to get citizenship, other than being born in the United States or acquiring citizenship through citizen parents. To become naturalized, you will need to meet the required period of legal permanent residency, show good moral character, pass a civics and English language test, and take an oath of allegiance to the country – our Boston law firm attorneys will help you with each of these steps.
If you are facing deportation for any reason, such as violating the terms of the visa, entering the U.S. without proper authorization, criminal convictions, or anything else, our law office will create the best defense strategy to prevent your removal from the U.S. and represent you in court. Our immigration practice attorneys will show the court that you have a right to remain in this country by challenging the grounds of deportation or applying for relief options such as asylum, cancellation of removal, adjustment of status, or waivers.
Temporary Protected Status (TPS)
TPS is a lifeline for people who are from countries that are experiencing extraordinary conditions like war or natural disasters. If you are from a TPS-designated country, we can help you get temporary refuge in the United States. While it will not give you permanent residency, TPS will provide protection from deportation, permission to work in the U.S., and in some cases, the ability to travel. If your TPS is set to expire or be terminated, we will discuss your options and plan the next steps, whether it is transitioning to another immigration status or exploring other legal avenues.
Visa Overstays and Unlawful Presence Waivers
If you have overstayed your visa, you can face severe immigration consequences, including the possibility of being barred from re-entering the U.S. for 3 to 10 years. However, if your spouse or parent is a U.S. citizen or permanent resident, and they would suffer “extreme hardship” if you were not allowed to return to or remain in the country, you might be eligible for an unlawful presence waiver. Our experienced immigration attorney will help you apply for the waiver by filing Form I-601A with USCIS, along with evidence of the extreme hardship your U.S. relative would face and proof of your relationship to them.
LGBTQ+ Immigration Issues
If you identify as LGBTQ+ and you are from a country where you might face a criminal conviction due to your sexual orientation or gender identity, our immigration lawyer Boston may be able to get you asylum in the U.S. Also, because of the legalization of same-sex marriage in the U.S., LGBTQ+ couples can now apply for the same immigration benefits as heterosexual couples. We can help you obtain spousal visas, adjustment of status, and other family-based immigration petitions.
We have also helped LGBTQ+ clients who are Deferred Action for Childhood Arrivals (DACA) recipients, HIV-positive, immigrants in detention, and various other situations where they are at a higher risk of abuse, discrimination, and neglect. Our law offices in Boston Massachusetts are well aware of these uniquely sensitive issues and are fully dedicated to make sure you receive fair treatment and the best possible outcome in your immigration journey.
