    • F Visa - University/College, High School, Private Elementary School, Seminary, Conservatory, another academic institution, including a language training program. 
    • M Visa - Vocational or other recognized nonacademic institution, other than a language training program.
  • U Visa - The U visa is a nonimmigrant status that is allocated for victims of certain crimes who have suffered mental or physical injury and are helpful to law enforcement with the investigation.
  • T Visa - The T visa is a nonimmigrant status that is allocated for those who have fallen victim to human trafficking. If they have assisted law enforcement, they are able to remain in the United States for up to four years.
  • Employment & Investment Visa - There is an abundance of work and investment visas that we can seek to secure for you depending on your goals.

Standing Up for the Children of Immigrants

One path to citizenship is a special immigrant juvenile status (SIJS). This status allows an immigrant child who can no longer reunite with one or both parents to secure permanent legal residency. I represent children who may qualify for SIJS, working closely with state courts to determine the best path for the child. In Mississippi, this can be an option until the child reaches 21 years of age.
