What does our agency do?

We are a Not-For-Profit Immigration legal services provider organization. As such, we only deal with Immigration law; our staff attorneys, paralegals and counselors are all regularly trained and updated in this field. We specialize in family based Immigration law and applications such as ADJUSTMENT OF STATUS (I-485), ALIEN RELATIVE PETITIONS (I-130), NATURALIZATION (N-400) AND GREEN CARD REPLACEMENT (I-90) and many more.

Why should we do our case with your agency?

Although there is no requirement that you use any organization or attorney/accredited representative to file your case, there are reasons why it makes common sense. 1) Any legitimate agency or attorney will file a Form known as a G-28 if they represent your interest as a petitioner, beneficiary or applicant. One of the best things about this is that the USCIS then has to send all appointments and receipts- any correspondence- to both you and our office. What this means in practical terms is that the chances of you not receiving a timely appointment are greatly lessened. This is of great importance in a field where even missing one appointment usually derails the application.

Secondly, and probably most importantly, submitting an Immigration filing is one of the most serious and important documents you will ever file. Outside of getting married and starting a family, becoming a legal permanent resident or citizen of our country is one of the most life changing experiences. The legal ramifications and far reaching consequences of an insufficient or botched application cannot be overemphasized. NTA’s (Notices To Appear) or Deportation notices are now issued much more readily on non-qualifying cases because of the extra personnel available. A consultation prior to filing with one of our staff is always a good idea. No appointment is necessary for consultations and they are free.

Lastly, all our agency does is Immigration work; our staff- attorneys, paralegals, supervisors, clerks- all practice only Immigration. What this means to you is that we keep up on current laws and procedures so that you don’t have to. In this way procedural errors are lessened for your application. Anyone can fill out Immigration forms, but knowing that they are done correctly is another story. Using taxes as an analogy, it’s always better to consult and file with an expert in the field to avoid unnecessary aggravation due to inexperience.

    My husband and I had a meeting at IAS with Mr. Meloni about our marriage based green card process and … read more I can't recommend this firm enough to other people! Mr. Meloni was incredibly helpful, kind and funny. He listened to all of our questions carefully and gave us specific answers. To top it all off, IAS was very affordable, which combined with the amazing service, shows that everyone at this firm genuienly cares about helping people 🙂

    This place looked nice at first and gave confidence because there were many people in consultation but … read more Maggie's attention was uncomfortable and unpleasant because despite being Hispanic, being from Argentina, she made discriminatory and out of place comments about the history of my country. Sincerely, I would not come back even if it was free.

    Immigration Advocacy is so efficient and helpful. We worked with Olga and she was always there to answer … read more our questions and give us the best advice for the best outcome. She was thorough with the paperwork and always called us with any updates to make sure we were well informed. We absolutely loved working with her and we are so grateful for all of her help. All other staff were extremely welcoming and helpful. We would STRONGLY recommend using their services. Reasonably priced and as long as you work honestly with them, you will get amazing results. My husband and I just had the interview for his green card and he got approved, thanks to immigration advocacy!
