Nonimmigrant Visas

The Nonimmigrant Visa Alphabet

Raleigh Lawyers for Your Visa Needs

The classification of "nonimmigrant" applies to any person coming to the United States for a specific purpose, usually to work or visit, for a temporary period of time. Some non-immigrant visas have longer durations than others, and each has its own eligibility requirements.

At Gardner Law, PLLC, we help our clients apply for and obtain nonimmigrant visas that best meet their needs, including but not limited to:

  • B1/B2 visas for business travelers, domestic employees or international visitors
  • E1/E2 visas for treaty traders and treaty investors
  • E3 visas for Australian nationals working in a specialty occupation
  • F1 visas for international students
  • H-1B visas for professionals in specialty occupations
  • J1 visas for exchange visitors such as students, trainees, researchers, or au pairs
  • K1 visas for fiancés of US citizens to come marry in the US
  • L1 visas for international companies interested in opening a US location or transferring a specialized employee or manager from its overseas office to its US office
  • O1 visas for foreign nationals with extraordinary ability in the arts, sciences, education, business, or athletics
  • P1 visas for athletes, artists and entertainers
  • TN visas for Mexican and Canadian nationals seeking work as an eligible NAFTA professional

Nonimmigrant visa classifications will allow you to bring your spouse and children to the US as dependents during the validity of your stay. Some classifications also allow your spouse to receive work authorization while here with you in the US.

Results That Speak for Themselves

  • Released from ICE / Pending Work Permit Removal (Bond Motion)

    Immigrant had a prior order of removal from over 10 years ago. He was detained by ICE again and his US citizen wife hired us to try to get him out. We filed a Motion To Reopen his In Absentia Order with the immigration court in New Orleans, Louisiana.

  • Secure a New P1 Visa for 3 Years P1 Visa

    We were able to work with his new manager to put together the needed information about their business, required licenses, and his ability to secure a new P1 visa for 3 years.

  • Approved Green Card AC21 Portability at the I-485 Interview

    We worked with her and her new employer to finalize her employment, prepare the I-485 Supplement J and gather the documentation to present at her interview under AC21 to allow her to port her I-140 and green card application.

  • Filed for I-918 U-Visa Petition U Visa Certification

    Re-submitted the request, along with the USCIS regulations noting that she had met the requirements in having provided assistance as well as her state of mind following the incident.

  • Green Card was Granted Same-Sex, Marriage-Based Adjustment of Status

    The petition did not have any red flags but the USCIS officer interviewed them separately (Stokes Interview) and asked incredibly specific and detailed questions about their finances, work history, and friends and family.

  • Renew Existing I-765 While Pending VAWA & I-48 VAWA

    We submitted her application, received a prima facie determination, and asked for her marriage-based I-485 to be held in abeyance until the I-360 VAWA petition could be approved.

  • Waiver Approved I-601A Waiver

    Waver was pending for almost one year, but it was approved and we are currently working on consular processing.

  • Received Certificate of Citizenship N-600

    This LPR client came to us worried about naturalizing because she had a bad criminal record and her naturalization application would probably be denied. After a thorough review of her family history, we realized she was already a US citizen through the Child Citizenship Act.

  • Approved for Adjustment of Status Family Member Adjustment of Status Granted

    Our client wanted to apply for adjustment of status via the 245i form, based on her sister’s US Citizenship that was granted many years prior to our case.
