If you are a foreign citizen who wants to live, work, or study in the United States, you will need to obtain the appropriate visa. Essentially, a visa is an official endorsement that will let a foreign national live or work in the U.S. for a specified period of time.
The visa application process is incredibly complex. Indeed, there are well over 150 different types of visas that you may be able to apply for. If you are seeking entry in the United States, no matter your circumstances, the experienced Wheeling visa attorneys at Kriezelman Burton & Associates, LLC are standing by, ready to help.
We are a full-service immigration law firm. Our Wheeling attorneys have experience handling a wide array of visa application cases. Whether you are applying for an immigrant visa based on a familial relationship, or any type of temporary work visa, we can assist you with your petition. A nonexhaustive list of some of the different types of visas that our team frequently handles includes:
Step 1: File a petition
The first step in seeking your visa is to file a petition. This is distinct from your actual application. Indeed, your petition must be filed with an American sponsor, and approved by United States Citizenship and Immigration Services (USCIS) before you can begin your actual visa application.
Step 2: Choose an agent and pay fees
Once your petition has been approved by USCIS, you will need to choose an agent and pay the all of the required processing fees. Your agent will be the person who receives all correspondence regarding your case. You or a loved one can serve as your agent, though it is a best practice to work through your immigration attorney.
Step 3: Submit an application
At this point, you will be able to submit your official visa application. It is imperative that you ensure that your application is completed without any errors or omissions. Further, you must be sure that you have obtained and submitted all relevant documents and records along with your paperwork.
Step 4: Prepare for an interview
Finally, you will need to prepare for the visa interview. Your visa applicant interview is the last step in the process before you can get your application approved. The good news is that you are allowed to bring your lawyer to your interview.

One of my relatives just received her Green Card and the credit goes to Kevin Raica and his Paralegal, Aga Bogdanowicz. The final “Adjust Status Petition” including the supporting documentation was 128 pages long! There is no way we could have compiled this level of detail much less have it be error free on our own. The whole process took around 8 months which is to be expected; however, the Petition package was so complete that no interview was required. If you ever have need of immigration legal service you just can’t go wrong with Kevin Raica and the immigration…
My international partner and I needed assistance with completing the process to receive a green card and residency in the United States. I am astounded with how quickly we received residency status thanks to the experience and quality of Kriezelman Burton & Associates.
