At the Wilmington, Delaware, immigration law firm of Huang Law LLC, we have helped many individuals achieve permanent residency for themselves and their families.
Every year many thousands of legal immigrants in the United States apply for visas to have their fiancée, spouse or other family member join them in America. The difference between a successful family visa application and a denial is often determined by the immigration lawyer’s skills and determination. At Huang Law LLC, we have seen first-hand how important it is for people to be successful when applying for a family visa. The application process can be frustrating and confusing, but our attorneys have a successful history of overcoming the obstacles that often lead to failure.
