Managing Partner Michael Wildes believes anyone who is eligible should apply for the visa lottery program. which grants prospective immigrants from countries with a low immigration rate to the United States an opportunity to receive what’s commonly known as a Diversity Visa (DV).
Each October, the U.S. Department of State publishes a list of countries who are eligible to apply for the Diversity Visa lottery. Although the registration process may seem daunting, the multilingual staff at Wildes & Weinberg helps guide our clients every step of the way. Our experienced legal professionals help our clients navigate the complicated registration process, assemble the required documents, and are always there for our clients, as we pride ourselves on building a personal relationship with each and every person who comes to our offices. Prospective U.S. immigrants that are selected as winners of the Diversity Visa will then be interviewed by an immigration officer at their U.S. Embassy abroad. Immigration interviews may seem intimidating at first, however, with our coaching, our clients are prepared to answer questions posed during the interview. By replicating the interview process, we ensure that our clients are fully equipped to successfully pass the interview and receive their Diversity Visa which allows them to live their American dream.
It is important to have a law firm on your side that is experienced and capable of devising solutions that meet your needs. At Wildes & Weinberg, we have an astounding track record of success in handling DV petitions for prospective immigrants. Our legal team remains up to date on current issues and knows how to deal with the challenges people are experiencing with this application. We take pride in ensuring the integrity of the DV process so that prospective immigrants are protected in every way. At Wildes & Weinberg, our clients can be sure that their matter will receive the personal attention it deserves.
