Immigration for Families and Individuals

Family Petitions

At Envoy, we understand the importance of keeping families together in the United States. To achieve this, our firm works diligently to prepare the family-based petition process. A family petition is a vital tool that allows U.S. citizens and lawful permanent residents (Green Card holders) to sponsor certain family members for immigration to the United States. The objective of a family petition is to reunite family members and ensure that close relatives can live and work in the U.S. legally.

Envoy Immigration specializes in family petitions and can guide you through every step of the process. We understand the emotional and legal complexities involved in reuniting families, and we are here to provide expert legal counsel and representation to ensure your loved ones can join you in the United States.

Who Can Be Sponsored?


Immediate Relatives

U.S. citizens can sponsor their immediate relatives without numerical limitations. Immediate relatives include spouses, unmarried children under 21 years old, and parents of U.S. citizens.


Family Preference

Lawful Permanent Residents (Green Card Holders) and U.S. Citizens can sponsor family members in the family preference categories. These include spouses, unmarried adult children, married children and siblings, depending on the petitioner’s status.

Global Consular Processing

Once your family-based petition is approved by U.S. Citizenship and Immigration Services (USCIS), the next crucial step is consular processing. This phase is especially important if your sponsored family member is residing outside of the United States. At Envoy, we are committed to simplifying this process and ensuring that your loved ones can join you in the United States smoothly.

What Is Consular Processing?

Consular processing is the procedure by which individuals who have been approved for an immigrant and non-immigrant visa (either through family-based petitions or other eligible categories) can obtain their visa and enter the United States legally. This process involves several key steps, and our experienced immigration attorneys are here to guide you through each one. 

Navigating consular processing can be complex and daunting, but you don’t have to go through it alone. Envoy immigration attorneys are well-versed in the consular processing procedures and intricacies involved with local governments and U.S. Embassies and Consulates abroad. We are committed to providing you with expert guidance and support every step of the way, ensuring that your family members can reunite with you in the United States smoothly and without unnecessary delays.

Permanent Residency

For individuals already present in the United States, the path to permanent residency often involves a process known as Adjustment of Status (AOS). Our team specializes in assisting qualified applicants in effectively navigating the AOS process, ensuring a seamless transition to permanent residency.

What Is Adjustment of Status (AOS)?

Adjustment of Status is the process by which certain individuals (who are already in the United States) can apply to become lawful permanent residents, commonly referred to as Green Card holders. Unlike consular processing, which is conducted abroad, AOS allows eligible applicants to complete the entire immigration process within the United States.

AOS applicants typically belong to specific categories, such as those based on family relationships, employment opportunities, refugee or asylee status, or other qualifying classifications. Applicants must satisfy admissibility standards, which encompass considerations such as criminal history, health conditions, and national security factors. In certain circumstances, waivers may be accessible to address specific issues.

At Envoy, we understand the importance and feasibility of achieving lawful permanent residency in the United States through AOS. We work closely with our clients to ensure the utmost preparation, submission, and legal accuracy in the application process. We are committed to you throughout the process. 

Naturalization and Citizenship

Becoming a United States citizen is a significant milestone in the immigration journey. This process, known as naturalization, offers individuals the opportunity to enjoy the full rights and privileges of U.S. citizenship. We guide our clients through the naturalization process, helping them achieve their dreams of U.S. citizenship.

Understanding Naturalization

Naturalization is the process by which eligible permanent residents can apply for U.S. citizenship. Once naturalized, individuals become U.S. citizens, granting them a range of benefits, including the ability to vote in federal elections, access to government jobs, and protection against deportation. 

At Envoy, we understand the profound significance of naturalization in the lives of our clients. We ensure that our clients are well-prepared, their applications are thorough, and any potential obstacles are effectively addressed.

Non-Immigrant Visa Categories

When your plans involve a more temporary stay in the United States, there’s a distinct path to explore: non-immigrant visas. Our focus is to guide individuals and businesses through the intricacies of non-immigrant visa legal matters, providing the aid you need to make the most of your temporary stay in the U.S. Whether you are seeking to visit, work, study, or invest in the United States temporarily, our experienced team is equipped to guide you through the complex landscape of non-immigrant visas.

Non-immigrant visas are designed for individuals who intend to stay in the United States temporarily for specific purposes. These visas encompass a wide range of categories, each tailored to the unique needs and circumstances of the applicant. Some common non-immigrant visa categories include:

We understand that every non-immigrant visa case is unique, and we approach each case with the attention to detail it deserves. Our goal is to simplify the process, reduce potential delays, and increase the likelihood of a successful visa application. We are committed to helping you achieve your temporary stay objectives in the United States.

Employment Authorization Documents

For individuals seeking to work legally in the United States, Employment Authorization Documents (EADs) are essential. We understand the significance of EADs in facilitating employment opportunities for our clients. Whether you are applying for an EAD for the first time or need assistance with its renewal or replacement, our team of attorneys are here to guide you through the process.

Understanding Employment Authorization Documents (EADs)

An Employment Authorization Document (EAD), also known as a work permit, is a government-issued card that grants temporary employment authorization to certain non-immigrant visa holders, asylum seekers, individuals with pending adjustment of status applications, and more. This document is crucial for those looking to legally work in the United States while maintaining their non-immigrant status.
