Applying for a visa
Applying for a visa takes more than sending forms to USCIS. The U.S. government places strict requirements on qualifications and outlines inflexible procedures for filing. Mistakes on your application can lead to crucial delays and a potential denial. Each type of visa comes with its own set of essential criteria, which must precisely match your qualifications.Maria Linda Gonzalez discusses your short-term and ultimate immigration goals to set up a long-range plan.  She will thoroughly analyze your situation to choose the appropriate pathway, and meticulously gather evidence that supports each element of your eligibility. She will examine complications and “troubleshoot” before problems occur.

Evolving  immigration laws
Immigration policy is under constant debate and the laws are frequently modified. In addition, the various government agencies that administer immigration benefits regularly update their procedures, forms and guidelines. Maria Linda Gonzalez stays current on the shifts in immigration law and updated on potential changes in the pipeline. To successfully advise you, she considers not only the laws as they exist but the possibility of beneficial — as well as harmful — reforms. Fastidious and dedicated, she will relentlessly pursue your case and develops unique solutions to complicated issues.
