Иммиграция в США: советы юриста

Тема иммиграции в США была актуальна во все времена. Существует огромное количество форумов и групп в социальных сетях, где обсуждаются насущные вопросы: от междусобойчиков русского-говорящих невест, отсчитывающих дни до получения заветной визы, до серьезных топиков на тему инвестиционного планирования с целью получения американского гражданства. Информация, полученная из интернета, помогает будущим иммигрантам сориентироваться в американских законах, но при серьезном настрое все же стоит обратиться к адвокату, который знаком с особенностями процесса и своевременно отслеживает бесконечные изменения правил оформления документов.

Меня зовут Ирина Ласт. Я – иммиграционный адвокат с многолетним опытом работы в США. Когда-то я сама прошла весь путь иммигранта, поэтому каждый клиент для меня – это не просто “дело”: я знаю, каким запутанным и эмоциональным может быть дорога к американскому гражданству, поэтому к каждому делу отношусь с особым вниманием и интересом. Неважно в каком городе вы находитесь или куда планируете переезжать: моя лицензия позволяет вести деятельность в любом штате США.

Если вам необходима поддержка, либо вы запутались со сроками, анкетами, номерами документов, попали в неловкую ситуацию или мучаетесь сомнениями – обращайтесь за консультацией, я помогу вам разобраться с любыми иммиграционными или неиммиграционными визовыми вопросами.

В этом блоге вы можете ознакомиться с реальными историями из моей практики, советами на тему оформления документов и размышлениями о жизни иммигрантов. Имейте в виду, что все имена героев моих статей вымышлены, а советы не являются официальной юридической консультацией. Вся информация, опубликованная здесь – это лишь рассуждения.

  • Irina Accolade The word hero is typically associated with our great military service men and women, firefighters, police officers, other first responders. But for me, Irina personifies the word hero. Over the past year and a half, Irina has worked tirelessly on my wife's immigration case and finally on March 9th, 2017, my wife and new baby daughter were able to travel with me to the United States where we surprised my parents and my sons. I cannot express how thankful we are for all of Irina's hard work and dedication, which went above and beyond the call of duty. You have a valuable asset in Irina.

  • K-1 Fiancee Visa I met my now wife on line in April 2012, she was in Russia. We soon realized that we wanted to further our relationship. I had no idea of the immigration/visa process but soon learned she needed a K-1 visa. I knew we needed an expert on immigration law. I looked at several attorney websites then I discovered Irina Lust. I hired her and she immediately went to work for us. As it turns out she was indeed the expert I was looking for, and as a bonus she speaks Russian which was very helpful for my then fiancé to understand all the details. I found Irina to be very detail oriented and always very quick to answer our questions and concerns. She was very thorough in explaining all the required steps and what we needed to know to be prepared for the interview process. She made this difficult process much easier. Anastasia arrived in the US in June 2013 and we were married in September 2013. So thank you Irina!

  • Lawyer You Can Trust We had to extend the visa B1. I found Irina review. And no regrets. Gave good advice. And as a result there is extended. I consider it very professional lawyer. Certainly recommend it to friends. Thank you
  • Greatest lawyer I ever met. Always available to help you and always answers her phone or email. Surprisingly it was very pleasant experience even though I’m talking about bankruptcy. I felt relief since our first conversation! After doing some research about her firm online I chose Irina’s law office. Everything workout exactly as she said it would. Believe it or not I felt like I’m underpaying Irina for her services. I would definitely recommend her as very noble professional.

  • A Very Knowledgeable Attorney Hello everyone. Probably as many people, I asked myself what kind of lawyer I'd like to work with. I got lucky my friends recommended to me a very good lawyer, Irina Lust. She is very responsible, responsive lawyer. I felt she was caring my case through like it's her own. I never got any issue, whichever question you ask she got the answer, very knowledgeable. She kept me updated all the time. Obviously, everybody knows where to check their status and stuff like this, but she gave me update earlier then I got it even though I was checking my status every single day. All saying above, it's just a little bit how I could describe my lawyer. Definitely I would (will) recommended her to relatives, friends, everybody. I am very happy and satisfied to have her as my lawyer.

  • Excellent! I highly recommend Irina Lust as an immigration attorney, who handled my H1-B application in the Spring of 2013. I was impressed with her professionalism. She guided me through the whole process, addressed all of my questions and concerns and responded in a timely manner to all of my emails and phone calls. I was extremely happy to get my H1-B petition approved even faster than expected!

  • Excellent Immigration Lawyer My employer hired Irina per recommendation of a friend. Even though we are located in Texas and Irina’s law office is in NYC, the whole H1-B application process went really fast and smooth. Irina was in constant communication with me and my employer and has always returned every single phone call and email. I was extremely happy to get my H1-B petition approved. Eventually, I had to travel back to India due to exigent family circumstances. When in India, I attempted to get a visa stamp in my passport but to my shock I received the 221(g) notice which meant I was found temporary ineligible for a visa back to the USA and that my case has been sent for further administrative processing. I was petrified as I thought that I will never be allowed back to the USA. I heard from my fellow Indian friends in similar position that it could take months sometimes even up to a year to get your case approved in India as they basically re-adjudicate it all over again. This is where Irina immediately came to my rescue. She urgently got in contact with my employer, prepared a large package of documents for me to submit to the USA Consulate in India, wrote a letter to the Consulate explaining my situation and followed up with them to expedite my case. Also, she has been in constant contact with me via email and offered her reassurances along each step. After stressful three weeks, I was finally granted approval and received my visa stamp which allowed me to come back to the USA. If you ever face similar 221(g) issue, I highly recommend using Irina’s services as she has all the necessary experience in this issue and can guide you through this extremely traumatic process.

  • Green Card Filing Went Smooth, Attorney in Constant Communication with You! My daughter has become a US citizen and we spent a lot of time interviewing various Russian speaking attorneys in Brooklyn. However, a friend suggested to contact Irina. Upon meeting her we knew immediately that she was the attorney for us. She seemed very warm, thoughtful, organized and explained every single step to us in detail. During our case, she was in constant communication with us which is rare for attorneys. She is a great person and a wonderful immigration attorney.

  • I highly recommend attorney Irina Lust. When I turned to Irina for advice on immigration and US residency in connection with corporate formation, merger and acquisition, I received focussed attention, great legal research and strategy preparation, and an expert, fine-tuned strategic plan. Irina made every effort to help me understand the challenges and pursue my goals in a timely, cost-efficient manner. With Irina as your attorney, you get the benefits of legal skills and expertise equivalent to that of a very large law firm plus the senior law partner involvement and attention to detail that a large firm would not be able to provide. If you need a great attorney, hire Irina Lust.
