Family Immigration

The Law Offices of Jan Allen Reiner can assist you with the family immigration process from start to finish.  We can:

  • file a petition for a family member who lives abroad, or is currently in the U.S., and if qualified, wants to become a “green card holder”
  • help reunite you with brothers or sisters, parents, children, spouses, or other family members by filing a petition on their behalf – and if the petition is approved, we can represent them in connection with their immigrant visa application or adjustment of status
  • prepare and submit all the necessary documentation for consideration by the Immigration Service, if an individual or family member is inadmissible but eligible for a waiver
  • assist in the process of international adoptions and represent adoptive parents in the preparation and filing of orphan petitions

Additionally, we have extensive experience representing our clients in connection with their naturalization applications or appeals before the Immigration Service.

  • obtaining expert reports and testimony
  • speaking with witnesses and family members to help them prepare statements or affidavits
  • preparing and submitting extensive legal memoranda and arguments in support of an application for asylum

Federal Court Immigration Litigation

The Law Offices of Jan Allen Reiner have expertise in litigation in federal courts – both the U.S. District Courts, (such as District Courts in New York, Pennsylvania, Virginia, and Washington, D.C.) and the U.S. Courts of Appeals in various Circuits (including the Second Circuit, the Third Circuit, and the Fourth Circuit).  We have represented many foreign nationals with appeals of denials of their applications for relief from deportation and removal before the U.S. Courts of Appeals, as well as with lawsuits against the Immigration Service and Immigration and Customs Enforcement for such things as:

  • unlawful detention
  • unreasonable delays in adjudication of green card and U.S. citizenship applications
  • unlawful failure to issue employment authorization

Because immigration law is federal law, we are able to represent foreign nationals across the U.S. and abroad.
