Immigration Practice Areas

The Law Firm of Craig J. Peterson L.L.C. practices solely in the area of U.S. immigration law. Within this area, we focus primarily on business immigration, petitions for professors, researchers, and physicians, artists and athletes, petitions for qualified family members, and citizenship applications.

We provide on our website general information on the eligibility requirements and the processes we employ to obtain non-immigrant (temporary) and immigrant (permanent) status in the United States on behalf of our clients.

In the Business Immigration section, you will find information about the main types of business-related temporary visas available, and ways to gain permanent resident status in the U.S. through employer-sponsorship, and also through self-sponsorship, depending on your situation and qualifications.

We enjoy working with start-ups and entrepreneurs, and under Entrepreneurs and Investors we have provided non-immigrant and immigrant visa information that is detailed specifically to this category of endeavor. Professors, Researchers, and Physicians have distinct avenues available to work and live in the United States. We provide information that relates specifically to these fields. Likewise, Artists and Athletes also have specific visas available.

Once you have obtained Legal Permanent Residence, you can eventually apply for U.S. citizenship through Naturalization, if you are so inclined, and if you are eligible. In our Citizenship section, you can find information about this process.

For those with certain grounds of inadmissibility, we can apply for Waivers, if eligible, to potentially overcome these hurdles and allow you to pursue nonimmigrant and immigrant options in the United States. In our Waiver section, you can see the types of waiver applications that we prepare for clients.

Based in Woodbury, the immigration lawyers of The Law Firm of Craig J. Peterson L.L.C. have over 20 years of immigration law experience in the areas outlined above. We welcome you to contact us for assistance with your immigration matter.
