Jacksonville Visa Attorney

Helping You Enter & Stay Within the U.S.A.

Your passport can help you travel to foreign countries temporarily, such as on vacation. If you want to stay in the United States for longer as a foreigner, though, then you may be required to first obtain a visa in addition to a passport. A visa is a travel document granted on a conditional basis, such as you intend to find and hold gainful employment in the United States while here or a student visa for a student granted admission in a University.

The Law Office of Joanne M. Fakhre, P.A. and our Jacksonville visa attorney can help you obtain a visa that best fits your travel or immigration situation. Attorney Joanne Fakhre is a two-time immigrant herself, being born in Lebanon, growing up on Grenada, becoming a naturalized British Citizen, and migrating to the United States. If there has ever been a visa lawyer who understands the nuances of immigration processes firsthand, it is her!

Visa Types: Figuring Out What Works for You

Every immigrant who comes to the United States is different from the next, of course. To this end, the type of visa you require to enter the country will be specific to your case. There are nearly 200 different types of visas avilable in the U.S. It is our job as your legal representatives to help determine the correct one for your situation, giving you the best chance of immigration success.

All U.S. visas can be sorted into two parent categories:

  • Nonimmigrant visas: Only for those intending to stay in the U.S. temporarily (for a few years)
  • Immigrant visas: For people who want to stay in the U.S. permanently. This is more difficult to obtain.

Common subcategories of U.S. visas are:

Of course, the visas listed here only represent a slim percentage of all the different types of visas recognized by the United States Citizenship and Immigration Services (USCIS). Even in a single category like work visas there can be dozens of variances. Allow our Jacksonville visa attorney guide you through the visa application process, including choosing the right visa type and applying for it using the correct resources.
