Adjustment of status / consulate procedure
To become a permanent resident, you must adjust your status within the United States or enter the consular process outside the United States. Yerman Law Firm focuses on status adjustments based on relatives’ applications in and outside the United States. The most common way to obtain permanent residency is through a spouse, children, parents, and siblings. Many people qualify for status adjustments in the United States, and it is essential that a qualified and experienced immigration lawyer handle your case.
Becoming a U.S. citizen is the ultimate goal for anyone who wants to immigrate to the United States. Just a green card is not enough! This is an inevitable step on the road to obtaining all the rights and privileges of American citizens, including the right to vote. Our team of lawyers fully prepares each client from the immigration officer’s questioning to the subsequent process. Immigration lawyers are vital on the path to success as a U.S. citizen.
Political asylum is an immigration benefit, and if political asylum is approved, you can apply for permanent residence in the United States. An application for political asylum must prove persecution based on race, religion, nationality, participation in a particular social organization or political opinion in the country. Yerman LLP has obtained political asylum approvals for more than 5,000 clients.
U visas are a temporary status for victims of criminal offenses in the United States. The United States requires victims to cooperate with law enforcement agencies to investigate and prosecute offenders. Our lawyers maintain close contact with our clients and law enforcement agencies to ensure that U visa certification is approved. After the U visa certificate is approved, our team of lawyers will submit the U visa application materials to the US government. If the U visa is approved, the client will get a temporary work permit and can finally apply for permanent residence status.

Applying for permanent residence through employment
We assist companies in applying for all job-based green cards for their employees, including EB-1 priority workers; EB-2 highly educated professionals; EB-3 professional talents. When the law requires testing in the US labor market, we help clients with legal labor certification procedures. We try our best to obtain immigration directions that do not require labor certification for our clients, such as outstanding scholars, managers of multinational companies, or applications for permanent residence based on personal superiority, such as the US national interest (national interest exemption).
We represent clients detained by the Immigration Department. We do our best to bail our clients and meet with immigration judges as soon as possible. Detainees may be oppressed by a deporter and coerced to sign a voluntary departure, so it is necessary to hire an experienced immigration lawyer to defend your right to stay in the United States.
