Its worth every penny.
Thank you Ms Anna and your team again for helping me and taking care of me! You are the best!

Dmitry S.

I went to Anna with some legal advise for a problem I was having with another company. The first thing I noticed that made me impressed, was her immediate sympathy for my problem. She wasn’t just a lawyer, but also a friend. She listened to all of my issues and then gave advise from both sides. She was honest in her opinion and gave me the advise I needed.

Imperial Immigration Lawyer FAQs

How can I legally immigrate to the United States?

At North County Immigration, we guide you through the various legal pathways to U.S. immigration. These include family-based immigration, where a U.S. citizen or permanent resident sponsors a relative; employment-based immigration, for those with job offers in the U.S.; special visas for refugees and asylum seekers; and the Diversity Visa Lottery. We’ll help you identify the best route based on your unique situation and assist you with the application process.

How do I apply for a Green Card (Permanent Residency) in Imperial, California?

Applying for a Green Card, or permanent residency, involves determining your eligibility category such as family sponsorship, employment, or special immigrant status. Once we identify your category, we’ll help you file the necessary petitions and applications with the U.S. Citizenship and Immigration Services (USCIS). Our team in Imperial will support you every step of the way, from gathering documents to preparing for interviews.

What is the process for becoming a U.S. citizen?

The journey to U.S. citizenship generally involves first obtaining permanent residency (Green Card). If you’ve lived in the U.S. as a Green Card holder for at least five years (or three years if married to a U.S. citizen), you may be eligible for naturalization. North County Immigration will assist you with the entire process, including preparing for the citizenship test and interview. Our services in Imperial also include workshops and resources to help you meet naturalization requirements.

Can I work in the U.S. on a visa, and if so, which visa do I need if I'm in Imperial, California?

Yes, you can work in the U.S. on various visas depending on your situation. Popular options include the H-1B visa for specialized occupations, the L-1 visa for intra-company transfers, and the O-1 visa for individuals with extraordinary abilities. Our team at North County Immigration in Imperial will help you understand which visa suits your professional background and assist with the application process, ensuring you comply with all legal requirements for working in the U.S.

What is Deferred Action for Childhood Arrivals (DACA), and am I eligible if I live in Imperial, California?

DACA is a policy that provides certain protections to individuals who were brought to the U.S. as children. Eligibility criteria include arriving in the U.S. before the age of 16, being under the age of 31 as of June 15, 2012, and continuously residing in the U.S. since June 15, 2007. If you’re in Imperial, California, and believe you meet these criteria, North County Immigration can help you with your DACA application or renewal process.
