Having over 15 years of experience dealing with work visas and issues in employment-based immigration,
can help you to obtain legal work-authorized status in America, lawful permanent residence, and U.S. citizenship. She has worked with clients from many different walks of life, from the arts, design and entertainment world to the medical and scientific community. If you have questions about a work visa, it is highly likely that Ms. Wolman has already worked with people facing similar circumstances. She understands that negotiating through the twists and turns of immigration procedures and paperwork can be confusing and burdensome, and that is the very reason she is here to assist you. Whether you seek an O-1 visa, H-1B portability or a Green Card, Karin Wolman has your best interests at heart and wants you to have a clearer understanding of the process.
To inform the public and give prospective clients some preliminary background prior to a consultation, we are pleased to provide an overview of all the types of temporary work visas
available to come to the United States, some detailed information about the H-1B visas
for professional workers, the O-1 visas
for individuals of extraordinary ability, and J-1 waivers
, as well as overviews of the various immigrant visas that lead to residence (a "green card") based on employment and on family relationships, along with Frequently Asked Questions and some published articles by Ms. Wolman. The purpose of these overviews is to acquaint you with the range of visas to the United States, not to provide legal advice. This general information is intended to acquaint you with some of the most basic features and requirements of each visa, to highlight the distinctions among them, and to illustrate that there are a wide variety of visas suited to different situations.
In order to determine the most appropriate visa type for your current situation, your prospective needs and goals, please consult with an attorney
to discuss the specific facts of your case and find a solution that fits, as each visa type has different requirements, limitations and restrictions. These pages are provided to inform, educate and set you at ease: we want to help you ask the right questions, and to help you anticipate some questions the attorney may ask you, not to make you an expert.
The FAQs are not intended as comprehensive problem-solving guides, they are offered only to highlight some issues that commonly arise in the immigration process, to raise awareness, and to dispel some common misconceptions that persist in the area of immigration law. Please feel free to contact us if you want more information. There are no stupid questions: Immigration law is vast, complex, and constantly changing. We hope the information on this site will make you more comfortable seeking help when facing the complexities of U.S. immigration law.
