Ann Barcher Law Firm specializing in Immigration law since 1992

For the past 25 years my law firm has limited its practice primarily to U.S. Immigration Law. Services in the following areas are offered:

 

1)  Citizenship and Naturalization, including citizenship applications (N400), Certificates of Naturalization (N600), and CRBA's (Consular Reports of Births Abroad) for children born abroad with at least one US citizen parent.

2)  Applications under the Child Citizenship Act of 2000 to preserve the rights of minors who are about to turn 21 and thus lose rights under another section of the INA (Immigration and Nationalization Law, as amended).

3)  Permanent Residence ("green cards").  The right to permanent residence may arise through Adjustment of Status, Consular Processing, Political Asylum, and a variety of other INA provisions.

4)  Political Asylum based on discrimination in the home country on the basis of race, religion, nationality, political opinion, and membership in a particular social group. {Note:  Political Asylum and refugee status are similar, but not identical.}

5)  Immigrant and Non-Immigrant Visas, including Visitor Visas for Business (B-1) and Pleasure (B-2);  Student visas (F-1for academic institutions;  M-1 for occupational school); Religious workers (R-1);  and a variety of more specialized visas.

 

6)  Employment visas (both for short-term work and for Professional Occupations); Labor Certifications, if required. 

 

7)  Defenses to deportation (removal), e.g., Cancellation of Removal.

 

8)  Renewal and replacements of lost, stolen, or never delivered Immigration Documents, such as passports, green cards, and employment authorizations (EAD's).  Correct procedure for Changes of Address.

 

9)  Representation at USCIS interviews and Immigration Court proceedings;  Motions to Review and Reconsider adverse USCIS decisions.

 

10)  Advice on current immigration issues and strategy as well as on related federal and state laws.

 

11)  Research and constant up-dating on proposed changes in immigration law.  Within the next year Congress may adopt a comprehensive immigration law, affecting not only DACA (Deferred Action for Childhood Arrivals), border security and law enforcement but also eliminating the Diversity Lottery and several existing categories of family immigration

(e.g., parents, siblings and adult children of US citizens).
