Testimonials

" During the process of getting my Green Card, my husband and I had so many disastrous experiences with the immigration lawyers we were referred to; some were way too expensive, while others were just plain unprofessional. Out of desperation, we came across the website for staylegally.com and decided to give them a call. Meeting with Jessie Thomas was a refreshing change. For one, she was very flexible and worked with us, she was even willing to meet with us on Sundays! Jessie Thomas was the perfect combination of personal and professional. We connected with her almost immediately, Jessie makes it easy for you to feel like you've known her all your life. Above all, she was very professional and had such great attention to detail. The immigration process is stressful enough as it is, so it was a relief for me to have a lawyer who was all about the details and I knew I didn't have to worry about it. I will not hesitate to refer The Law Office of Jessie Thomas to any of my friends that I know are in need of such services because I know they would not be disappointed. "...More

Other Visas Lawyer - Richardson, TX

TN Professionals (NAFTA)

The primary purpose of the TN nonimmigrant visa classification is to allow Canadian and Mexican professionals to temporarily work in the United States. The North American Free Trade Agreement (NAFTA) created the TN nonimmigrant classification in 1993. Our Richardson, Texas lawyers can help prepare the paper for these other visas.

In order to qualify, the Canadian or Mexican professional seeking this status must meet the following criteria:

The profession is on the NAFTA list, and;

  • The professional possesses the specific requirements for that profession;
  • The prospective position requires someone in that professional capacity, and;
  • The professional is going to work for a U.S. employer.

NAFTA made obtaining temporary employment in the U.S. and the classification necessary to engage in such employment, easier than previously possible for certain Canadian and Mexican professionals.

K3, K4 Certain Husbands and Wives of U.S. Citizens, and their dependent children

U.S. citizens can file relative petitions for their husbands and wives, to begin the process for them to be able to immigrate to the U.S. If the U.S. citizen has filed the petition, while it is being processed the U.S. citizen can also file a separate petition to let the husband or wife come to the U.S. as a K3 nonimmigrant category to await approval of the relative petition, and then apply to adjust status and become a permanent resident. This status cannot be granted to a person who is already in the U.S.

Unmarried children under 21 of the U.S. citizen’s K3 husband or wife can be granted K4 dependent status, to accompany the K3 and wait here with the K3 for the relative petition for their parent to be approved, and then apply to adjust status to become a permanent resident. This nonimmigrant process is not available to the husband and wives of permanent residents.

If you are in the process of filing an application of this type, you will need qualified legal help for these other visas and our lawyers in Richardson, Texas can help. We look forward to protecting your rights and serving your immigration needs.

H-2A Temporary Agricultural Workers

The H-2A program allows U.S. employers to bring foreign nationals to the United States to fill temporary agricultural jobs for which U.S. workers are not available.H-2A nonimmigrant classification applies to aliens seeking to perform agricultural labor or services of a temporary or seasonal nature in the United States on a temporary basis. A U.S. employer (or an association of U.S. agricultural producers named as a joint employer) must file a Form I-129, Petition for Nonimmigrant Worker on a prospective worker’s behalf.

  • The job offered must be of a temporary or seasonal nature
  • The employer must demonstrate that there are not sufficient U.S. workers who are able, willing, qualified, and available to do the temporary work
  • The employer must show that the employment of H-2A workers will not adversely affect the wages and working conditions of similarly employed U.S. workers
  • Generally, a single, valid temporary labor certification from the U.S. Department of Labor must be submitted with the H-2A petition. (A limited exception to this requirement exists in certain “emergent circumstances.”

To qualify for H-2B nonimmigrant classification:

The employer’s need is considered temporary if it is a one-time occurrence, a seasonal need, a peak-load need, or an intermittent need;
  • The employer must demonstrate that there are not sufficient U.S. workers who are able, willing, qualified, and available to do the temporary work;
