In Honolulu, the Big Island, and throughout Hawaii, the Law Offices of Edward J.S.F. Smith has extensive experience in all aspects of immigration law, including naturalization situations and permanent residency status (green card) applications for both employment-based and family-based visas. Our firm represents businesses and individuals throughout the United States and around the world, dealing with the USCIC as well as U.S. embassies and consulates worldwide.
One of the main reasons people seek entry to the U.S. is to improve their lives through better employment opportunities, and the nation's immigration system offers many different pathways for willing and able workers. Our firm handles petitions for immigrant visas in any of the EB preference categories, from unskilled workers to multinational executives and workers of extraordinary or exceptional ability. We understand the different types of evidence and documentation which may be required to establish eligibility under the different categories. In addition, we work with non-immigrant visas, permanent labor certifications (PERMs), and the many other employment-based visas offered for specific types of workers and occupations.
