Business Immigration
Do you aspire to live and work in the United States? Let us help you realize your dream and accomplish your career ambitions. Only a limited number of business immigration visas are allotted on an annual basis, so it is important to retain a skilled Orange County immigration lawyer who can effectively assist you and ensure that you have the best possible chance of achieving your goals.

Change of Status
If you are present in the United States on a temporary visa such as a student visa but you wish to pursue lawful permanent residency, talk to the legal professional at the Law Office of Ashkan Yekrangi, P.C. about changing your status. This is a complicated legal process, and having a good immigration attorney on your side could make all the difference in the outcome of your case.

Let us join you on your journey and be a part of your American story.

Criminal Law & Immigration
If you have been accused of a crime, you may be ineligible for certain forms of removal relief. While an arrest does not necessarily lead to deportation, conviction of a crime could, depending on the type of crime committed. If you are accused of a second or subsequent misdemeanor or a felony offense, you may be barred from obtaining legal resident status. At the Law Office of Ashkan Yekrangi, P.C. we understand the implications that a criminal conviction can have on a person's immigration application or status, so talk to our attorney about your case.

Deportation
If you received a notice to appear before an immigration court, this means that you are already in removal proceedings. You may, however, be eligible for relief from removal. It is important to talk to the Orange County deportation defense attorney from our firm as soon as possible to protect your future.

Diplomatic Visa
These visas are reserved for heads of state, ambassadors, members of parliament, and other high-ranking government officials. There is a range of diplomatic visas depending on an individual's type of work or purpose. When obtaining a diplomatic visa, it is important to ensure you are receiving the one that is appropriate for your purposes.

Green Cards
There are numerous avenues to obtaining permanent resident status, or your "green card," in the United States. You can obtain a green card if you have a family member or prospective employer who is willing to sponsor you; through marriage or adoption; or as a victim of a serious crime or persecution in your country of origin. Contact the Law Office of Ashkan Yekrangi, P.C. to learn more.

PERM Labor Certification
This process allows employers to obtain permanent residency for employees. PERM Certification is initiated by the employer and filed with the Department of Labor. Employees with both valid immigration status and permission to work may be eligible.

Visas
United States Citizenship and Immigration Services offers a number of different categories of immigrant and non-immigrant visas. The type of visa that you should apply for will depend largely on your personal goals and aspirations. It is important to talk to our firm's Irvine visa application attorney about your unique situation and the right visa to meet your needs.

Deferred Action
DACA, or Deferred Action for Childhood Arrivals, was passed in 2012. It addresses individuals who arrived in the United States without proper documentation or have overstayed their visas due to their parent's actions. If you came to the United states as a child and are now facing deportation, you have legal options. Learn more by speaking with our dedicated attorney.

Victims of Crime (U-Visa)
Individuals and their families who have been victims of crime in the United States may apply for a U-visa that allows them to legally live in the states for up to four years. U-visa carriers may apply to obtain a green card and obtain U.S. citizenship. If you have suffered injury from a crime and cooperated with authorities, consider your options with a U-visa.

Violence Against Women
VAWA, or the Violence Against Women Act was created to protect noncitizens who are victims of abuse. If you are seeking lawful status and have been or are a victim of domestic violence, you may be able to pursue legal status without your abuser. Find out how by scheduling a consultation.

Green Card / Permanent Residency
Are you seeking a green card in the United States? The process can often be complex, long, and confusing. It can be very beneficial to have an experienced attorney by your side who can guide you through the green card process. Let us help you determine if you are eligible to pursue permanent residency.

Adjustment of Status
If you entered the United States on a valid visa and are seeking an adjustment of status, our firm may be able to help. This process allows you to pursue permanent residence through a green card. We can review your case today and provide you with the guidance you need.

Fiancé Visa
In order to obtain a fiancé visa, you must be a U.S. citizen, you must be both legally able to marry, and you must have met within the last two years (though there are some exceptions). The process can take up to nine months and be very complicated, especially at the consular processing state. Make sure you are prepared by talking with our firm about your case.

601 & 601A Waiver
A 601 Waiver is a petition for various grounds of inadmissibility while a 601A Waiver is specifically for a spouse or immediate relative of a U.S. citizen who entered the United States unlawfully or without proper documentation. The 601A Waiver can be submitted to excuse their unlawful presence.
