Immigration FAQ

Q: What are the benefits to citizenship?

A: The procedure to obtain citizenship can be very complex; however, there are numerous benefits. These benefits may include the right to vote, being able to reunite with your family, and procuring a sense of safety that you can remain permanently in America.

Q: Are there different types of visas?

A: Absolutely, there are a number of different types of visas which you may explore depending on the reason for your visit to the U.S. or desire to reside in this country. They can include business visas, investor visas, fiancé visas, family visas, work visas, non-immigrant visas, immigrant visas, and internship visas.

Family Law FAQ

Q: How will my property be divided in a divorce?

A: This is a matter we can discuss during your first consultation, but typically shared property (also known as marital property) is split up 50/50 between two spouses. There may be a few exceptions which apply to your divorce case, depending on the circumstances, but it is best to speak with an attorney first.

Q: What factors are considered when determining custody arrangements?

A: Typically the best interests of the child or children are considered the most important factor in custody agreements. It is up to the judge if one or both parents will share decision-making power and who will have physical custody. They will look at the wishes of the child, their needs, the relationship the child has with each parent, if there is any history of violence or substance abuse, and other elements of the child’s everyday life.

Q: Is the adoption process complicated?

A: It certainly can be. There are many different types of adoption cases, including grandparent adoption, guardian adoption, newborn adoption, and step-parent adoption. We work with all types of clients to help you get through this process in an efficient manner.
