Guidance For The Immigration Journey
The journey through U.S. immigration laws can feel never-ending and even overwhelming at times. You may find that having a legal guide along the way can make a critical difference in your outcome. You may also find comfort in knowing that your guide has been through it all herself and understands what you are going through.

As an immigrant herself, she feels passionate about being there to navigate with each client and advocate for them every step of the way.

What Are Your Family Visa Options?
Whether you are looking to sponsor a family member for a visa or you are the one who needs the family-based visa, you should know several things about the process. Only certain family relationships qualify for different types of visas, falling into two general categories:
- Immediate relatives: An immediate relative of a U.S. citizen will receive special preference. They include spouses, unmarried children under the age of 21 and parents.
- Preference relatives: Other close relatives of a U.S. citizen may qualify for an immigration visa, but at a lower preference than immediate relatives. They include unmarried and married adult children and siblings. The spouses and unmarried children of permanent residents may also apply.
Many people find the required documentation confusing and long. Ms. Noyes will answer your questions and help you complete all the necessary forms, making sure they are completed correctly.
Achieving The Dream Of U.S. Citizenship
Achieving U.S. citizenship through the naturalization process requires many steps under the immigration laws, but it can be done. Various factors can affect the process and length of time it takes, including how long you must be a lawful permanent resident living in the U.S. before you may apply. Everyone’s journey looks a little bit different. Ms. Noyes will review your situation with you to figure out the most efficient path to citizenship for you.
