Jacksonville Nonimmigrant Visa Attorney

Immigration Lawyer for National & International Clients

Nonimmigrant visas are those issued to citizens of other countries who wish to come to the U.S. on a temporary basis for business, tourism, study, work, or investment opportunities. More than 20 different categories of nonimmigrant visa classifications currently exist. Whether you are an individual looking to temporarily visit the U.S. or an employer who seeks to bring someone here temporarily, you need the services of an organized and focused attorney to smoothe the way, anticipate any problems, and keep your paperwork and documentation on target.

Change of Status

Many non-immigrants enter the United Status in one status and may decide to change to another nonimmigrant status while in the United States. This can be done if the nonimmigrant entered lawfully/legally with a nonimmigrant visa, that nonimmigrant visa is still valid, and he/she has not committed a crime that would render him/her ineligible.

Visa Extensions

Visa Extensions or Extensions of Stay can be granted if an individual is eligible for an extension of his/her current nonimmigrant status and the extension is applied for before the expiration of the individual's authorized stay in the United States.

The Law Office of Joanne M. Fakhre can provide dedicated legal assistance toward achieving your objective. Our Jacksonville nonimmigrant visa lawyer, Ms. Fakhre, is an immigrant herself and has been committed to practicing immigration law since 2003. We can answer all your questions and walk you through the process, providing honest and realistic answers that will help you understand the process and possible issues that could arise.
