Lawful Permanent Residence

Experienced in both Consular Processing and Adjustment of status, we have the know-how to help you navigate the complex laws and procedures to establish Lawful Permanent Residence in the United States.

Here are some of the many different types of Immigrant Classifications:
►  Immediate Relatives (Parent, Spouse, Child) of U.S. Citizen;
►  Special Immigrants;
►  Vietnam Amerasian Immigrants;
►  Family-Sponsored Immigrants;
►  ​​​​​​​Employment-Based Immigrants;
    →  Alien with Extraordinary Ability, Outstanding Professor or Researcher, Multinational Executive or Manager;
    →  Professional holding advance degree;
​​​​​​​    →  Skilled workers and professionals with baccalaureate degree;

    →  Business Investors;
►  Diversity Lottery; AND,
►  Asylees, Refugees, and other Status Adjustment Cases.

​​​​​​​Each Immigrant classification has its own eligibility requirements.  And, the procedures for Consular Processing are different from Adjustment of Status.  Avoid confusion! If you do not know whether you qualify for a particular immigrant classification or whether to use Consular Processing or Adjustment of Status to obtain your Lawful Permanent Residence, contact Attorney Stenhouse to schedule a consultation appointment.

When you are seeking to come to the United States for a temporary purpose, to live permanently, or to become a U.S. Citizen, you want the guidance of competent, knowledgeable, and effective counsel.  Attorney Lance S. Stenhouse takes pride in the way he counsels his clients and helps them to navigate the complex sea of immigration laws and regulations.

​​​​​​​Each visa type has different eligibility requirements. Don’t get caught up in the details!  If you want the help of someone who understands the detailed requirements for getting a Non-Immigrant Visa, please immediately contact Attorney Stenhouse to schedule a consultation appointment.

Naturalization and Citizenship

Immigration benefits do NOT end at Lawful Permanent Residence: NEITHER DO OUR SERVICES! We offer our expertise and experience to those who seek the ultimate immigration benefit for themselves and/or their children: U.S. Citizenship!

For many people, obtaining U.S. citizenship is a big step in attaining their American Dream.  American citizenship provides many rights and privileges NOT available to Lawful Permanent Residents, such as the right to vote in elections, the privilege to enter and leave the U.S. more freely, entitlement to certain Social Security benefits, and avoidance of deportation and removal proceedings.

Even better: When a person naturalizes, his or her children may also automatically become citizens of the United States! And, we can help you apply for a U.S. passport(s)!
