This phase of the immigration process personally brings greater satisfaction to our firm, as many of the individuals who labor for charitable and religious organizations don't do it for the money, but because they have a calling to help others. Many of the charitable and religious institutions and the individuals they sponsor for temporary religious and permanent immigrant visas are characteristic of the melting pot, great experiment and religious freedoms our country has to offer.

Our firm has handled hundreds of R-1 religious worker visas for members of the Jewish, Christian and Muslim faiths. We have also represented dozens of charitable and religious organizations across the country in their sponsorship of permanent religious workers to the successful adjudication of lawful permanent resident status. We guide organizations and individuals through the increasingly complex process involved in these kind of cases, which very often now include inspection of the work site by agents of the U.S. government.

In many instances, our firm has volunteered its services on a pro bono basis, or at substantial reduced fees, based on our strong belief in the important of service to our community.

For questions on how we may assist your charitable/religious organization, please contact Managing Partner Michael Wildes at
