Choosing an Immigration Lawyer in NYC

Do your research
You will likely talk to a few immigration lawyers before choosing one to work with. If it sounds too good to be true, it probably is.

Check for any professional memberships

Make sure communication won´t be an issue

Our multicultural staff understands what it is like to be an immigrant and to find your own way in a new country. We’re here to help you.

NYC Immigration Q&A

What type of visas are available in the U.S.?
The United States offers immigrant and nonimmigrant visas. Immigrant visas allow individuals to stay indefinitely in the U.S. by granting them a Green Card, or permanent residency. Green Card holders can later become U.S. citizens through the naturalization process. Nonimmigrant visas are granted for specific purposes and length of stay. For example, a business trip, tourism, studies, medical treatment, or work.

What visa do I need to live in NYC?
Depending on your eligibility you may get an immigrant or nonimmigrant visa. If you are a Green Card holder you may live anywhere in the U.S., including New York City. However, you may also live in New York City if you’re here for a short period of time on a work, study, or other temporary visa.

What kind of non-immigrant visa do I need to live in NYC?
The type of nonimmigrant visa you may be eligible for depends on the purpose of your travel. For example, individuals with an extraordinary talent in the sciences, arts, education, business or athletics may be granted an O visa. While an intra-company transferee would be granted an L visa. To live In NYC and the rest of the United States, you can apply for nonimmigrant visas for multiple reasons, including tourism, sport competitions, studies, business activities, medical treatments, cultural exchanges, and many other purposes.

What visa do I need to work in NYC?
If you already have a visa that allows you to work in the United States, all you need is a work permit. If that is not the case, you could be granted an L visa if you’re transferring to a U.S. office from an overseas branch of the same business. You may be granted an H1B visa if sponsored by a U.S. employer. You could get an O visa if you have an extraordinary talent in the sciences, arts, education, business or athletics to perform such professional activity in the United States. Or you could get an EB visa if you have extraordinary abilities and are recognized in your field.

What is the largest immigrant group in NYC?
According to data shared on the MOIA's 2020 Annual Report, 13.4% of the foreign-born population in NYC comes from the Dominican Republic, making it the largest immigrant group in the city. The group is followed by China with 11.8% and Jamaica with 5.7%.
