AREAS OF PRACTICE
Under U.S. immigration laws, asylum may be granted to foreigners who are already in the USA and who can establish persecution or a well founded fear of persecution in their home countries based upon their political opinion, race, religion, nationality, or membership in a particular social group. Approval of the asylum case by US immigration authorities permits the asylee to apply for permanent resident status in the USA after one year of the approval of the asylum case.

Our services include assistance with filing the initial asylum application, representation at the asylum interview, and full representation during asylum hearings at immigration court.

Green Card Based on 10 year Physical Presence / Deportation Defense
Did you know that US Immigration Law provides, that people in deportation proceedings can apply for a green card in the USA based on 10 years of physical presence in the USA and family ties in this country? The Immigration and Nationality Act provides, that aliens placed in removal proceedings can apply for cancellation of removal and for adjustment of status to permanent resident status if they have lived in the USA continuously for 10 years, if they have a US citizen or lawful permanent resident spouse or child, if they can prove that their deportation will result in extreme and unusual hardship to their relatives and if they were persons of good moral character in the past 10 years. This applies to aliens who entered the country illegally without an inspection. Attorney Varga can advise you on any issue related to how to fight the deportation.
Family Based Green Cards
If you plan to obtain your green card based on your familial relationship with a US Citizen or lawful permanent resident ( green card holder), we've got you covered. Our services include representation in K1 fiancee visa cases, preparation of applications for a green card based on marriage to a US Citizen, representation at the marriage interview and filing of an appeal if your marriage interview does not go well and your case is denied. If you have applied for a green card based on marriage to a US Citizen a long time ago, and the USCIS has not made a decision on your application, we can assist you in urging the USCIS to reach a decision in your case.
Student, Exchange Visitor and Tourist Visas
Immigration Attorney Matus Varga, Esq. assists his clients with cases involving J 1 exchange visitor visas as well as F1 student visas, B 1/B2 tourist visas and their extensions. If you are a J1 visa holder subject to a two year foreign country residency requirement, we can assist you in waiving that requirement and get your green card without having to live in your country of nationality for two years.
US immigration law allows green card holders to apply for US Citizenship after 5 years of a green card being granted, if additional requirements are met. If you are currently married with a US Citizen with whom you have obtained your green card, you can apply for US Citizenship after 3 years, instead of 5 years. The great importance of being a US Citizen is not only the ability to apply for a green card for your relatives in your home country, but also protection from deportation. Even a green card holder can be deported for crimes such as aggravated DUI, aggravated assault or domestic violence.
Business / Investor Visas
E-2 investor visas permit nationals of designated countries to enter the United States in order to direct and develop a commercial enterprise or business in which they have invested a substantial amount of money or capital. This visa also allows one to acquire a green card in the USA if additional requirements are met. For a list of E 2 visa eligible countries, click here.
Immigration Justice center, PLLC can also assist you in obtaining a green card through an L1A visa. An L1A visa allows companies operating both in the US and abroad to transfer certain classes of employees from its foreign operations to the USA and obtain a green card for them.
