Immigration Law Continued

Our immigration law attorneys ask you the following question first "Do you want to live, study or work in the United States and how long do you wish to remain the United States?"
If you answer the above question with "YES", we recommend to extensively read through all immigration statutes and regulations.
As Immigration attorneys we like to provide a small guide into the complexity of the immigration law in order for you to obtain an overview so you can ask us the right questions.
First you need to know for how long you would like to remain in the U.S. Based on this you fall into the Immigrant or Non-Immigrant category.

International Law Continued

In the era of globalization, it is difficult to avoid getting involved in international legal matters. People are constantly traveling internationally; they get married to a foreign national and would like to live, study or work in the same country as their fiancé or husband.
Furthermore, nowadays many people acquire investment properties in other countries than their home country, or they inherit assets not located in the United States, or they even want to extend their business and acquire additional market shares internationally for their services and goods.

Due to our international expertise, we can assist you with regard to international legal matters, specifically pertaining to the U.S. and Germany.
