for persons from certain countries party to the U.S. visa waiver program,
any person who is overseas and is neither a U.S. Citizen or Legal Permanent
Resident must apply to the U.S. Consulate abroad for a visa in order
to enter the U.S. Most visa applications necessitate having an approved
USCIS visa petition, although there are certain circumstances where
all of the documents in support of a visa application go directly to

These applications are for persons outside the US who seek to enter
the U.S. temporarily, or who are entering temporarily but are statutorily
eligible for remaining in the U.S. permanently. In many cases, the nonimmigrant
visa applicant will have to present an approved visa petition such as
for a fiance, for example, or an I-129
for a temporary H-1B worker. In other cases, the applicant will
have to file all of his/her documents with the US consulate abroad.
My fee will depend on the complexity of the application and the issues
that client must address in order to be issued a nonimmigrant visa.
I may also be retained, at extra cost, to be present at the nonimmigrant
visa applicant's interview at a US consulate abroad, although this may
not be an option much of the time because many US consulates do not
allow attorneys to attend visa interviews.

Immigrant visas are applications to US consulates abroad to allow a
person to enter the United States permanently, as a legal permanent
resident. This fee may be adjusted upwards due to complicating factors
in a client's case. I may also be retained, at extra cost, to be present
at the nonimmigrant visa applicant's interview at a US consulate abroad,
although this may not be an option much of the time because many US
consulates do not allow attorneys to attend visa interviews.
