SERVICES / CASE TYPES

USCIS form numbers are noted in parentheses and provided for your general reference to the main application filed for the case type. This does not mean, however, that only one form is filed for that case type. For example, a marriage-based 'green card' application case can involve concurrently filing five to six forms.

THIS IS NOT an exhaustive list of case types. These categories are just a starting point. Your case may involve nuances that cross various areas of immigration law. My understanding of the connectedness of different areas of immigration law allows me to problem solve in the most effective way. Please contact me if you do not see a case type that you believe fits your situation.

EMPLOYMENT AUTHORIZATION DOCUMENT (EAD) (“work permit”)

  • Renewals (I-765) *EADs can never be applied for as standalone immigration benefits. They are always anchored to a main application for an immigration benefit, or connected to being under an ICE (U.S. Immigration & Customs Enforcement) order of supervision. Similarly, renewals are based on a pending immigration application – meaning that the application has neither been denied nor approved yet. If the main application has been denied, there is no longer a basis upon which to renew a related EAD.
