This phase of the immigration process brings great personal satisfaction to our firm, as many of the individuals who work for charitable and religious organizations in USA don't do it for the money, but because they have a calling to help others. Many charitable and religious institutions and the individuals they sponsor for temporary religious and permanent immigrant visas are characteristic of the melting pot.
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 worker visa to the successful adjudication of lawful permanent resident status. Our immigration lawyers for religious workers have the expertise to guide organizations and individuals through the increasingly complex processes involved for getting a religious visa, which very often includes 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 substantially reduced fees, based on our strong belief in the important of service to our community.
