Response to USCIS Notice
If applicable, applicants for U.S. visas or citizenship must submit responses to the Request for Evidence or Notice of Intent to Deny issued by USCIS.
U.S. visa applicants subject to certain grounds of inadmissibility need to obtain a waiver to remove such restrictions to reenter the U.S
Certain U.S. work visas involve incorporations of business entities in the U.S.
“The attorney handled my NIW green card case with great efficiency and care. From drafting letters to helping me gathering the necessary documents I always received timely and accurate guidance. My case went perfectly smooth without RFE and I received my green card directly on the mail without interview. Would recommend this law firm to anyone.”
“I worked with other law firm for my Eb2 NIW, which was a little frustrating to me. So, I chose Tigris Legal for my consular processing. I would say I should have chosen Tigris for my I-140 application. Quick responses, hard work, adequate advice etc.”
