Immigration Law

 

Immigration is about people. Landers understands that the best way to serve our clients is by understanding our clients’ concerns, and by responding with the utmost professionalism and skill. Landers Law Corporation has a division focused solely on immigration law. We look forward to assisting you with your immigration efforts.
 
Landers does not delegate their duties to non-lawyers and we continually update our clients on all matters concerning their case throughout the process. Our attorneys and staff have years of experience in the field of immigration. We pride ourselves on teamwork, attention to our clients, and favorable results. Moreover, our attorneys personally schedule and attend InfoPass appointments on behalf of our clients with US Citizenship and Immigration Service (USCIS) and regularly check the status of each case to ensure the immigration process runs smoothly.

In the field of immigration, appearance is everything. We take the time and care necessary to ensure each immigrant petition, visa, application, renewal or Motion is prepared with the utmost care and professionalism. Our knowledge and experience enables us to present the most favorable application to the USCIS or US Consulate. When an adjudicating officer or immigration judge receives applications and Motions, it is critical to present the most direct and clear argument possible because each adjudicator receives hundreds of applications a day.
 
If your immigration case is stalled and getting nowhere, we have had tremendous success in filing HABEAS CORPUS petitions for our clients in federal district courts — forcing the Department of Homeland Security to make a prompt decision without any further delay.

Employment-Based Petitions

Among the wide range of immigration services that we offer, employment-based petitions such as L-1 Intracompany Transferee Visa’s and E-2 Investors Visa are exceptionally popular choices for those seeking legal status in the United States while seeking greater financial prosperity at the same time. 
 
The L-1 visa is a temporary non-immigrant visa which allows companies to relocate qualified foreign employees to its U.S. subsidiary, affiliate or parent company. The qualified employee must have worked for a subsidiary, parent, affiliate or branch office of the company for at least one of the last three years. The U.S. company must be a parent company, subsidiary company, or affiliate company to the foreign company. 
 
The L-1 ("Intracompany Transferee Executive or Manager”) visa is a highly successful way for small or start-up overseas companies to expand their business and services to the United States. This visa greatly benefits smaller companies because it allows for the transfer of a proficient manager or executive with direct knowledge of operations, allowing the setup of a new branch in compliance with the goals and objectives of the company’s main office.
 
The E-2 (“Treaty Investors”) visa is available to an alien who is a citizen or national of a treaty country who wishes to enter the U.S. solely to develop and direct the operation of an enterprise in which he or she has invested, or is in the process of investing a substantial amount of capital. 
 
Three main requirements for E-2 visas are: 1) A treaty must exist between the US and foreign country under whose treaty the E status is sought (for instance, Australia, Taiwan, Canada, Macau, Singapore, and United Kingdom qualify for E-2 Treaty Investors, whereas nationals of Mainland China do not), 2) Majority ownership or control of the investing company must be held by nationals of the foreign country under whose treaty the E status is sought, and 3) Citizenship of the foreign country under whose treaty the status is sought.
