- Employment Eligibility Verification (I-9) Audits and Compliance. USCIS requires employers to confirm each prospective employee’s identity and eligibility to work in the United States through Form I-9. Employers must also store a completed I-9 form for at least 3 years after a hiring date or at least 1 year after the employment relationship ends, whichever is later. Our immigration lawyers in Leesburg, VA routinely advise U.S. employers on these matters and can represent you in an audit of your records.
- Fiancé Visas (K-1). If a U.S. citizen is preparing to marry a foreign national, the K-1 visa can be used to facilitate a marriage in the United States. This generally allows the newlywed immigrant to remain in the country with their spouse while their subsequent request for a green card is processed.
- Spousal Visas (I-130). U.S. citizens and lawful permanent residents can sponsor their spouses for green cards.
- Parent/Child Visas (I-130). Only U.S. citizens can sponsor their parents for green cards. Lawful permanent residents can sponsor their unmarried children, while citizens can sponsor their children regardless of marital status.
- Adjustments of Status (I-485). When your family-based or employment-based petition has been approved by USCIS, you can request an “adjustment of status” and procure your green card without leaving the United States.
- Naturalization (N-400). Lawful permanent residents who maintain several years of physical and continuous presence may qualify to become U.S. citizens. The naturalization process involves passing a 2-part citizenship exam and participating in an in-person interview with a USCIS officer.
- Emigration. Our team at The Gillispie Law Firm can assist with foreign placements of U.S. employees.
