Welcome to:
Located in Winchester, Virginia.

Hello and thank you for visiting our website. To avoid any confusion, this website is not associated with the government. Also, all of the forms on this site are free. You should NEVER pay for immigration forms! Although there is a filing fee to *file* forms, websites charging you for the form packets alone, should be avoided! USCIS and the NVC provides all needed forms at no charge.

Our office is located in Winchester, Virginia. This website is to provide useful information to those with immigration issues and for information on our services. Most of the information on these pages is taken directly from the United States Citizenship & Immigration Services (USCIS) Department of Homeland Security (DHS), U.S. Department of State and the Department of Labor. The links provided for most forms and form information go directly to those sites so that the information is kept current.

My area of practice is limited to immigration matters only.

I offer services in removal proceedings, also known as "deportation" proceedings, as well as most immigration application services with the exception of labor certification.

Because I am my own webmaster and stay extremely busy, this website is not updated as often as I would like. So some of the information on this site is outdated. Usually there is a posting date. If you have questions about an immigration matter, call or email me.

<--- Use the links to the left to navigate my website.

The links at the top are mainly about me, my location and to make payments on account via PayPal. The Articles and Forums are occasionaly updated to provide useful and helpful information on various topics.

I am located in the beautifual, Shenandoah Valley AVA (wine growing region) and convenient to the Shenandoah valley area, northern Virginia and much of West Virginia and Maryland :

You may want to take time to use the automated "Eligibility" checklist which is located on the left (<---) margin of this page. It may help you learn what type of immigration relief may be available to you. (DACA eligibility has not yet been added to the automated checklist but you may view those requirements at that page.) Enjoy!

Immigrating to the United States to live here permanently is an important, and complex decision. This section provides information to help foreign citizens desiring to permanently immigrate to determine the visas, requirements, and related materials they will need to apply to immigrate to the United States. For information on who can immigrate to the U.S., click on the link below titled: Visa Types for Immigrants.

Also see the links to your left, which includes a "forms" link.

Effective March 20, 2007, consular posts abroad are again authorized to accept petitions for immediate relative immigrant classification from American citizens who are resident in their consular districts, U.S. service members, emergency cases involving life and death or health and safety considerations, and others determined to be in the national interest.

Immigrant Visa Processing - The National Visa Center (NVC)

After the immigrant petition has been approved by U.S. Citizenship and Immigration Services (USCIS), the petition is forwarded to the National Visa Center (NVC) for processing .  NVC plays an important role in the next steps of the U.S. immigration process.  NVC provides instructions to petitioners and sponsors, and receives from sponsors, the required Affidavit of Support forms, fees, other required documents, and much more.  For numerically limited family preference petitions, NVC contacts the petitioner once the petition’s immigration wait nears end, and the priority date is about to come current.  

Learn more about the Affidavit of Support information and the National Visa Center.

See Visa Information for Immigrants for more information about the Visa Bulletin, required vaccinations, DNA testing and more.
