Immigration Law FAQs
Should I hire an immigration lawyer?
Immigration laws in the U.S. can be complex and confusing. Hiring an immigration lawyer can help make the process move forward more easily so that you don’t have to worry about applications being rejected, unexpected requirements or costs, or other time-consuming delays.
How can I extend my visa?
Extending your visa in the United States requires planning ahead. You must file for an extension before your authorized stay expires using Form I-539.
