While most people see the negative headlines associated with immigration, I’m happy highlight the many benefits of legal immigration to our country, whether it is for investment purposes or assisting two people who love each other in getting married
Phoenix, AZ (PRWEB) September 16, 2014
Citizens of countries outside the United States seek to immigrate to the U.S. for many reasons, often times financial, but others a matter of the heart. Recently, Irena Juras of the Juras Law Firm assisted two clients who fell into those categories: a Canadian citizen who wanted to legally invest in a U.S. based company and a U.S. citizen who wanted to immigrate his Philippine born fiancé.
The first case involved a Canadian investor who wished to take advantage of the E-2 Treaty Visa, commonly an alternative to the EB-5 Investor Visa. This type of visa allows a national of a treaty country to enter the United States to develop and direct a business in which (s)he invested, or in which (s)he is actively in the process of investing, a substantial amount of capital. In this case, the gentleman sought to invest in an Arizona based retail business, his E-2 Investor Visa was approved by the U.S. Embassy in Toronto in late August.
Juras’ second case involved a young couple who sought to get married in the United States. Juras’ client, a U.S. born citizen, engaged Juras to help his fiancée in the Philippines acquire a K-1 Fiancee Visa to the United States. What’s notable about this case is the fact that the fiancée was able to get the visa in only two months, whereas the average processing time is normally five months. The fiancée legally entered the U.S. and was married within 90 days. Juras then filed the application to adjust status to a conditional resident status which was approved in three months.
“While most people see the negative headlines associated with immigration, I’m happy highlight the many benefits of legal immigration to our country, whether it is for investment purposes or assisting two people who love each other in getting married,” commented Juras.
