a look back: michael wildes discusses mail order brides with montel williams

Managing Partner Michael Wildes and his clients, a U.S. citizen  and his Russian Fiancee, are guests on the Montell Show whereby Michael provides insight into the Fiancee Visa.

Under U.S. Immigration Law,  the following visa classifications are in effect:

K-1, Fiancé(e)s of U.S. Citizens

Those engaged to be married to U.S. citizens who seek to enter the United States solely to enter into a valid marriage with the U.S. citizen petitioner within 90 days after entry, and the minor children of such persons, may be admitted in K-1 and K-2 visa status.  The period of admission is 90 days. K-1 aliens are ineligible for extension or change of nonimmigrant visa status; they may only adjust status to lawful permanent resident on the basis of marriage to the U.S. citizen petitioner.
      
K-2, Spouses of United States Citizen Petitioners
      
K-3 visa classification is available to individuals for whom a United States citizen spouse has already filed an immigrant visa petition, which remains pending.  This visa classification facilitates entry  for the spouse of a United States citizen (and his or her minor child) while awaiting processing and adjudication of the immigrant visa petition.

Wildes & Weinberg was founded in 1960 by Senior Partner Leon Wildes, whose best-known accomplishment was his successful representation of John Lennon in his widely publicized deportation proceedings, the circumstances of which have inspired several films and documentaries.  More than fifty five years since its inception, the firm continues to specialize exclusively in the practice of U.S. immigration and nationality law, servicing a distinguished domestic and international clientele in the areas of employment and investment-based immigration, work permits, permanent residence for qualified individuals, family-based immigration, asylum applications, and all temporary and permanent type visas.

Despite difficulties currently being encountered in dealing with U.S. immigration authorities, Wildes & Weinberg has  maintained an extraordinary track record for success for its cases.  In addition, the firm’s  multilingual  staff is known for its experience and special expertise in processing each foreign national’s case with nothing less than the highest level of professionalism. 

Today, Wildes & Weinberg maintains offices in New York City, New York, Englewood, New Jersey,  Miami, Florida, and just announced that it will be expanding to California in the near future.

As with all immigration matters, it is best to consult with an experienced attorney to ensure that the complicated waters of the U.S. immigration system are being navigated properly.  Please contact Managing Partner Michael Wildes at michael@wildeslaw.com  with any questions.
