Posted on Oct 13th, 2017

The INA requires that the noncitizen has extraordinaryability in the sciences, arts, education, business, or athletics,…… Read More »

Posted on Oct 11th, 2017
Many people who have the goal of getting a Green Card or immigrant visa will direct their search to employment-based Green Cards. Employment-based Green Cards are divided into categories.

Maryland Is Now Part of the RIDE Program

Posted on Sep 21st, 2017
Last month, Maryland joined the federal government's RIDE program, which is something individuals who will submit an I-9 form and employers who use E-Verify for employment-eligibility verification should take note of.

Posted on Sep 16th, 2017
It is important to know inadmissibility grounds, grounds which prevent some noncitizens from gaining admission into the US or from gaining certain benefits or certain relief from removal while in the US. If one of these inadmissibility grounds applies, the non-citizen to whom it applies will be ineligible for certain benefits (unless the noncitizen receives a waiver or some other kind of relief), and any effort to get that benefit will often come to a permanent and crashing halt.
