Areas of Practice
Family based immigration
Margaret W. Wong & Associates provides specialized counsel to individual immigrants and their families. We help thousands of individuals and families with various visas, including K-1 Fiancé, K-2, K-3, K-4, F-1, F-2, J-1, J-2, L-1, and L-2s. We also advise couples on the US green card process through marriage.
Asylum is a protection granted to foreign nationals already in the United States or at the border who meet the international definition of a "refugee." Our attorneys are dedicated to representing and advocating on behalf of immigrants seeking asylum in the United States. We have successfully represented thousands of immigrants and their family members in the asylum process.
employment based immigration
We advise companies and individuals on various employment-based immigrant visas, which allow for a green card (permanent residency in the United States), including the various EB employment based categories, and non-immigrant visas, which allow employees to work in the US temporarily.
Deportation and Removal
Immigrants who are threatened with deportation or who have been ordered removed from the United States must navigate the complex legal and federal regulatory system. We vigorously defend immigrants throughout the country who face deportation, and advise individuals on their options for fighting removal.
investment based immigration
We advise individuals and investment groups on non-immigrant investment based visas, including E-1 and E-2 treaty visas, which encourage trade between the United States and the treaty country.
Immigrants who have already been to immigration court and the Board of Immigration Appeals without obtaining their desired results may have additional options through the appeals process. We are one of the premier immigration law firms in the United States, and have extensive knowledge and experience in federal immigration law.
