Latest news
8/24/2020 COVID-19 Update:

LCV office: Due to the current COVID-19 outbreak our office is working remotely and client-meeting will be conducted virtualy when possible. The office remains open, and we are working normally otherwise, and have taken additional measures to ensure our client and staff safety when conducting in-person meetings at the office.

USCIS: Some in person meetings have resumed since June 4th, 2020 this includes green card interviews (we have our first marriage based green card interview scheduled for mid-september), naturalization interview and oath cermonies. Biometrics appointments have also resumed. If your appointment was canceled you should just wait for it to be rescheduled, the USCIS will send you a new notice.

U.S Consulates: Except for E2 visa interviews which are being conducted and approved since August, other Immigrant and non-immigrant visa interviews are still being postponed until further notice. If your appointment has been canceled, you must login into your account to reschedule it. 

Travel to France (for americains): Outside of Student visas, and short stay visa for spouse of French citizens, all visas for France are suspended. Travel to France for americains is still restricted, but we can now request a special derogation to allow couples (who are not married) to travel to france to see their loved one. 

Travel to the U.S: Three presidential proclamations are in place, that may affect your ability to re-enter the U.S if you travel. The proclamation from March 11 barring travel to the U.S for anyone who has been in the extended schengen zone is still in effect and continue to prevent entry into the U.S for all visa holder (except exemptions for green card, U.S citizen, and some family of U.S citizen). We have now successfully been requesting exception for people with a valid visa (such as E2 or B1) to return to the U.S based on the National Interest Exception despite the travel ban. Feel free to contact us if you need to request such travel excemption. The other two proclamations restrict respectively the issuance of immigrant visa for certain people currently outside the U.S until the end of the year, and the entry into the U.S of H1-B, H2B, L1 and J2 unless they already have a valid visa on the date of the proclamation (June 22nd). 

I-94 Reminder: If you have a non-immigrant visa make sure to look-up the I-94 for yourself and each member of your family on the following site: https://i94.cbp.dhs.gov/I94/#/home.Due to the current COVID-19 pandemic international travels are still limited and consulates/embassy abroad are closed (likely until the travel ban from europe is lifted), therefore if your I-94 will be expiring in the next few months, you will probably have to apply for an extension of stay with the USCIS. If you are in the U.S under ESTA and your I-94 will expire soon, please contact us as we can request Satisfactroy Departure to extend your stay by 30 days.
