Compassionate Counsel and Fierce Advocacy in NY

The United States immigration system is a multifaceted and complex structure that encompasses various categories including employment-based immigration, family-sponsored immigration, asylum, LGBTQIA immigration, and removal defense.

Employment-Based Immigration

Employment-based immigration is designed for individuals who possess certain skills, abilities, or professions that are deemed beneficial to the U.S. economy. This category is further divided into five preference groups ranging from "first preference" (EB-1) for priority workers to "fifth preference" (EB-5) for immigrant investors. Each group has specific eligibility criteria and application processes that applicants must navigate.

Family-Sponsored Immigration

Family-sponsored immigration allows U.S. citizens and lawful permanent residents (LPRs) to bring certain family members to the country. Immediate relatives of U.S. citizens, including spouses, unmarried children under the age of 21, and parents have special immigration priority and there are no numerical limits on visas available to them. Other family members fall into the "family preference category," which has annual caps.


Asylum offers protection to individuals who have suffered persecution or fear they will suffer persecution due to race, religion, nationality, membership in a particular social group, or political opinion. To apply for asylum, one must be physically present in the U.S. or seeking entry into the U.S. at a port of entry.

LGBTQIA Immigration

LGBTQIA immigrants face unique challenges within the immigration system. While the U.S. does recognize same-sex marriages for immigration purposes, many LGBTQIA immigrants come from countries where their identities are criminalized or persecuted. These individuals may seek asylum based on their LGBTQIA status. Furthermore, transgender immigrants often face significant hurdles due to legal name and gender marker changes.

Removal Defense

Removal defense involves legal strategies to prevent the deportation of individuals from the U.S. This can include applying for relief from removal such as asylum, adjustment of status to lawful permanent resident, cancellation of removal, waivers of inadmissibility and deportability, and more.

The U.S. immigration system is a complex landscape with a variety of pathways and potential obstacles. It is crucial for anyone navigating this system to seek appropriate legal advice to understand their options and rights.
