Visa Services in Kennewick (Tri-Cities), Washington

Our Kennewick Washington immigration attorneys represent clients seeking various types of residency in the United States in the Tri-Cities and Eastern Washington area. The first step for coming to America is to secure a visa, which allows the visa-holder to enter the country. Visas are divided into two types: immigrant visas, for foreigners seeking to stay in the U.S. permanently, and non-immigrant visas, for foreigners seeking to stay in the U.S. temporarily or until they get an immigrant visa.

Immigrant visas in Kennewick (Tri-Cities), Washington

In order to get an immigrant visa, foreigners must secure a sponsor that has petitioned and been approved by the U.S. Citizenship and Immigration Services (USCIS) and the National Visa Center. Qualifying sponsors are relatives who are U.S. citizens or green card-holders.

Family-sponsored visas

  • Spousal visa: For non-citizens with a U.S. citizen or legal permanent resident husband or wife. The U.S. makes no distinction between opposite-sex and same-sex marriage visas.

Nonimmigrant Visas in Kennewick (Tri-Cities), Washington

Similar to immigrant visas, the non-immigrant application process usually requires petitioning the USCIS, having an interview, and providing evidence of the foreigner’s purpose in traveling to the U.S. Non-immigrant visas usually have a maximum duration of stay.

Green Card Services in Kennewick (Tri-Cities), Washington

Foreigners with immigrant visas may eventually be eligible for Green Cards in Washington, which makes them legal permanent residents (LPR) of the U.S. Foreigners who are abuse victims in the U.S. may also be able to secure green cards through the Violence Against Woman Act (VAWA).

The process for applying for a green card while the applicant is outside the U.S. is called consular processing. If the foreigner is in the U.S., applying for a green card is called “adjustment of status.”

Citizenship Services in Kennewick (Tri-Cities), Washington

Legal permanent residents are typically eligible to naturalize to become U.S. citizens within three-to-five years of obtaining green cards. LPRs need to take naturalization tests and an oath to become a citizen.

Foreign-born children can obtain U.S. citizenship through their U.S citizen parents, and some foreigners may be able to maintain citizenship in their home country as well as the U.S. through dual citizenship.

Stopping Removal and other Immigration services in Kennewick (Tri-Cities), Washington

ICE officials have prosecutorial discretion over which non-citizens to arrest. Our Kennewick (Tri-Cities) immigration lawyers represent clients in cancellation of removal proceedings in Washington. In some cases, clients may choose voluntary departure from the U.S. over the risk of getting deported.

Other immigration services our attorneys provide include helping people remain in the U.S. through deferred action (DACA) and the Child Status Protection Act (CSPA).
