Few areas of the law are as complex, politically volatile or as distinctive per case as immigration. In the wake of the 2016 U.S. Presidential Election, it is important that immigrants to the United States know how prospective legislation may impact you and your family's plans to visit or live in the U.S.A. Whether you are a domestic business owner that wishes to employ foreign talent, a foreign immigrant investor seeking United States citizenship, or a U.S.-based project developer that is interested in obtaining foreign financing through the EB-5 immigrant investors program, our talented and experienced team can navigate you through the murky waters to ensure travel to and stay inside the United States of America is safe, reliable and long-lasting.
EB-5 Immigrant Investors Visa Program
Under the Immigrant Investor Pilot Program, investors from abroad can apply for a green card through investment in an existing or new business enterprise or a regional center in the United States. The spouses and unmarried children under 21 of the investors can also apply for green cards through this program. The Kushner Offices has represented both developer and immigrant in over 100 EB-5 petitions.
L-1 Intracompany Transferee
L-1 visas enable United States employers to temporarily transfer existing workers from an affiliated foreign office to an office in the United States. Alternatively, the affiliated foreign company can temporarily send workers to the United States to set up a new office or company.
Political asylum is one of the most difficult areas in immigration law. Our office fights and wins asylum for immigrants fearful of return to their home countries due to persecution based on race, religion, nationality, political opinion, and social group.
Family-Based Green Card
To promote family unity, certain family members of United States citizens and permanent residents are eligible to be sponsored for a green card in the United States. The spouses and unmarried children under the age of 21 of the principal beneficiary may also apply for green cards as derivative beneficiaries.
