Family and Employment-Based Immigration in Queens & NYC
Two of the main reasons people immigrate to the United States are
employment. Through our experience in the field of immigration law, we have come
to recognize that one of the most sensitive areas of immigration law is
the way it may affect families. Families may be brought together or kept
apart as a result of these laws and proceedings. With our knowledge of
family immigration matters and how your status as a citizen or
Legal Permanent Resident (LPR) may affect your ability to obtain visas for certain family members
or even affect naturalization proceedings for your loved ones, we can
work to keep your family together.
If you are employed or are seeking employment in the United States, you
may qualify for one of about 140,000 employment-based immigrant visas
that are issued each year. If you are eligible for such a visa, a Queens
immigration lawyer at our firm may be able to help you experience peace
of mind in knowing that you can live and work in the U.S.
There are five main categories of employment-based visas and various sub-categories
under these; an attorney can help you determine under which of these you
- Employment First Preference: Priority Workers
- Employment Second Preference: Professionals with Advanced Degrees
- Employment Third Preference: Skilled Workers, Professionals, and Unskilled Workers
- Employment Fourth Preference: Special Immigrants
- Employment Fifth Preference: Immigrant Investors
Deportation Defense in New York
Over the past decade, there has been an increased focus by federal authorities
on individuals who are in the U.S. illegally, who have expired visas or
who are working in the country without documentation. When ICE (Immigration
and Customs Enforcement) detains an individual, there is a real threat
deportation. Our legal team acts quickly to defend against deportation
actions and understands the urgency and need for fast, effective help.
Our lawyers have been called upon to represent those who have been caught
in the tightening security net of the Department of Homeland Security.
Many of these cases are related to criminal accusations which have then
led to the threat of deportation. In fact, hundreds of thousands of individuals
have been deported from the U.S. in the past decade, many of them due
to criminal charges. Our firm is uniquely qualified to provide counsel
in these matters. Our founding attorney,
Michael Musa-Obregon, is a former NYC prosecutor who understands both sides of criminal cases.
He has experience in state and federal criminal defense, immigration law
and deportation defense.
