Frequently Asked Questions

What types of visas are available if I want to come to the U.S. for a visit or temporary stay?

If you wish to visit the U.S. temporarily or be granted entry for a very specific period of time, you will need a non-immigrant visa. Some common types are: student visas, business investor visas, or a travel visa.

How long will my green card remain valid?

Permanent residency, obtained through a green card, allows a foreign national to live and work in the U.S. on a potentially indefinite basis. When a green card is first issued, it is often a temporary green card, valid for two years. After the first two years, providing you have not been convicted of any criminal activity and have maintained your eligibility status, you can apply for a permanent residence visa which is valid for ten years.

What type of visa should I get if I want to become a U.S. Permanent Resident?

Depending on your current immigration status or situation, there are many visas available to foreign nationals wishing to permanently immigrate to the U.S. such as: a fiancée visa, family visa, work visa, and more.

What is an Adjustment of Status?

An adjustment of status is the process of changing your status from non-immigration to immigrant. If you arrived on a non-immigrant visa, this means you intended to stay temporarily and meant to return to your home country. If you apply for an adjustment of status and your application is approved, you will be issued a green card and given lawful permanent residence in the U.S.

My visa has expired, what can I do?

If your visa has expired, the first thing you need to do is contact an attorney from our firm. We will consult with you, review your current status and situation, and help you to determine the best course of action to pursue. Time is of the essence when it comes to expired visa, so do not delay in contacting an immigration attorney at Ferguson Immigration Law.

I have received a deportation order, is there anything I can do to avoid being deported?

If you receive a deportation order or notification, the first thing you should do is contact an immigration attorney at our firm, who will work closely with you to build your deportation defense. You should have an immigration attorney who understands and is skilled in all aspects of immigration law.
