Phoenix Attorney Handling Family-Based Visa Petitions

Whether here already, or coming to the United States, most immigrants just want to keep their families together. Unfortunately, U.S. immigration laws block legal immigration for those who may have a criminal record or simply be unlawfully present for more than one year. Bringing your spouse or children to join you legally in the United States requires the services of a qualified, experienced immigration lawyer.

For more than 20 years, first as a paralegal and then as an attorney, Alice Vacek Aranda has been fighting on behalf of people seeking legal immigration status for themselves and their family members.


Working Hard To Unite Families

Our law firm unites families separated by borders, no matter how complicated the situation might be. Immigration services we offer include:

Adjustment of status: We assist individuals who entered the country legally, but stayed past the expiration of their visas. As long as you entered the United States lawfully, you may be able to stay here while pursuing an adjustment of your status. If you marry a U.S. citizen, we can help you pursue a green card and, later, citizenship.

Consular processing: We also represent people who have entered without documents, and want to seek legal status from a qualifying family member. In this situation, you will likely have to return to your home country to apply for a green card through consular processing while seeking a waiver for your unlawful presence. Obtaining a waiver for unlawful presence is difficult and not everyone qualifies. There must be a significant, extreme hardship that your U.S. citizen, or permanent resident spouse, will face without you.

Finally, we represent U.S. citizens or lawful permanent residents petitioning for family members overseas to go through consular processing to come to the United States for the first time.
