Family Immigration Law
The US government’s policy is to keep families together and sets its immigration policy to enable families to stay together or begin on US soil. If you want to utilize the tools offered by immigration law to keep your family together, call Louis Robbio for help. He can provide assistance with fiancée and marriage visa applications (petitioning for a foreign spouse). He helps with bringing over children, grandparents, and other relatives if they are eligible under federal regulations. Mr. Robbio will use his experience to make sure that the necessary paperwork is completed with efficiency and without error so that you and your family can be united in America.
Removal (Deportation) Defense
If you are facing removal because of a lack of status or possible loss of status, you should contact a lawyer immediately. ICE or other federal agencies could be looking to detain you for some period before a hearing before an Immigration Judge is scheduled to determine whether or not you should be removed from the United States. You will have the opportunity to make your case to remain here at that time. Louis Robbio is an experienced litigator who has experience at all levels, from circuit courts to federal appeals courts. He can help you make your case to stay and appeal if necessary, an unlikely occurrence with Mr. Robbio on your side.
All industries are “high tech” industries in the information age. The best minds in tech are often found outside the United States, and business owners would be remiss to overlook hiring experts in the field. If you are running a business and need to sponsor a future employee to work for you in the U.S., Louis Robbio can be a highly skilled and professional partner in this arena.
