Of all the areas of law, immigration may be one of the most complicated to fully understand and it may be the most personal type of law too.
After all, your citizenship – your home – is often at the root of who you are, the basis of your identity. Whether you chose your home country or were born into the country, you are an American. A Brazilian. A German. A Mexican.
But if you want to change your citizenship or just visit or work in another country, the number of hurdles to jump and paperwork to fill out is astounding. It’s an alphabet soup of forms to use. HB-1, EB-5, F-1, K-1, I-129, I-130, and I-485 are just a few of the hundreds of different types of visas to apply for.

Frequently Asked Questions about overall immigration issues
Isn’t this something I can just go to the immigration office and handle?
Of course, you can, but the number of forms and details you will need to go through to be successful is quite large. The U.S. Government intentionally makes immigration difficult. You need someone with experience and full knowledge of immigration. Reach out to The Orlando Law Group to start the process.
I have an urgent need to solve my immigration visa. How quickly will this take me?
Unfortunately, immigration is not an easy fix. Depending on which immigration office you visit, there is often a backlog of cases of more than year. Again, this system was not designed to be easy, it was designed to limit immigration except for specific cases. That said, your case will be resolved quicker if you have someone working with you with the knowledge to make sure every form is the right one and every answer is correct.
Which visa should I apply for?
That question is nearly impossible to answer as there are hundreds of different types of visa for nearly every circumstance having a specific type of visa. Some of the most used visas include tourist visas, HB-1 visas, O-1 visas, EB-5 visas and K-1 visas. Please reach out to The Orlando Law Group to help review the options for your specific case.
I’m struggling to find employees. How can I find foreign workers?
There are a wide range of programs aimed to help employers who need workers and can’t find them in the United States. But there are also very specific requirements for every type of program the government has set up. Reach out to The Orlando Law Group to explore your options.
How much do I need to invest in the United States to get a green card?
While there are a wide range of options, the most common investment visa is the EB-5 visa. As of March 15, the minimum investment is $800,000. Of course, there are stipulations with that investment as there are with any visa. We can certainly help you with your investment, especially since The Orlando Law Group also has a full-service real estate division.
