What Type Of Visa Do You Need To Work, Study Or Live In The U.S.?

Many people first come to the United States under a visa: for a visit, for college or other educational opportunities, or for a job. Many types of visas allow certain people to come to the U.S., and it can be difficult to know which one you need.

At the Law Office of Valdez & Monárrez, we help people get the visas they need to come to or stay in the U.S. We can help with applications for:

  • Employment visas for temporary and permanent workers
  • Student visas for academic studies, vocational studies and exchange students
  • Immigration visas for family members
  • Visas under the Violence Against Women Act
  • U visas for people who are victims of certain crimes
  • All other types of visas, including visas for victims of human trafficking and humanitarian visas

What Is The Difference Between A Green Card And A Visa?

Both nonimmigrant visas and immigrant visas (green cards) are ways to stay in the U.S. legally. The main difference is a nonimmigrant visa only lets you stay in the country temporarily, but a green card gives you permanent resident status, letting you live in the U.S. permanently. If you aren't sure what type of visa you are eligible for, give us a call and we can help you understand your options.
