Immigration Law Services

Marriage And Family Based Immigration

There has never been a better time to get your spouse a green card. Whether your husband or wife is outside the United States or already stateside, we are here to help. If you are an immigrant or a US citizen, you don’t need to be afraid. We’ve been helping immigrants become green card holders and US citizens for a quarter-century. We stay current on all the daily changes to immigration law and have a history of solving complicated immigration issues.

Business Immigration

 

From architects to dentists, librarians to engineers and professors to every type of information technology specialist imaginable, our office has been able to secure long-term and permanent immigration status for a wide range of professionals.

Removal And Deportation

 

Do not find yourself in the unfortunate situation of fighting deportation. Contact us regardless of where you live if you face removal, and we will do everything we can to find a solution before you are taken away from your loved ones.

Citizenship

Whether you have a complicated case due to prior mistakes with the criminal justice system, tax problems or allegations of fraud, we will consult and advise if citizenship is right for you. Do not forget, the naturalization application is 21 pages long. Even those of you who think that the process looks simple, be careful, please. Call 973.642.1111 or email HYork@ImmigrationLawNJ.com for a consultation now.

U Visas And Related Petitions For Victims Of Violence

If you have been the victim of a crime or violent act, call us today at 973-642-1111 to discuss your rights and how you may qualify to receive legal status. There is a growing interest in our government to deter violence by encouraging immigrants to apply for legal status after suffering as victims of many criminal acts. We can help you.

Appellate Litigation

Additionally, our firm has filed arguments in cases where our clients’ green card and citizenship applications were unreasonably delayed. Whether you need a review of an asylum denial or visa refusal, a federal appeal might be appropriate. We have taken on novel issues and made them work.

Green Cards

 

Our constant, thorough review of the latest progress – in the ever-changing procedures by which to secure legal permanent residence status – will help you achieve the best outcome possible on your green card application.

Marriage Based Immigration

 

Educate yourself by speaking to us today about the complex nature of this process and why hiring us may be the smartest move you make. Do not go it alone. Far too many couples call us after a bad experience on their own or with lawyers not thoroughly experienced in immigration law.

Investor Visas

The investment need not always be extraordinarily high. These cases are carefully prepared to advance the standing of immigrant investors in America. Contact us today to find out about E-2 nonimmigrant status. We also counsel immigrants on EB-5 visas.

H-1B And All Work Visas

We have long standing relationships with industries ranging from manufacturers and distributors of a multitude of products as well as service providers in finance, law, health care and technology, among others. Contact us to review your work visa needs.

K Visas For Fiancées

The procedure is often fraught with challenges ranging from document review to time delays to questions about the validity of the relationship. You deserve to be united with your true love as soon as possible. We will do everything we can to return your emails and calls as soon as possible. Our immigration firm has assisted American citizens whose fiancées are all over the world waiting to enter the US.

Labor Certification (PERM)

 

We will outline and execute PERM cases for you, no matter what industry. We know the ins and outs of carefully crafting job duties and responsibilities. Recruitment and “ability to pay” issues are carefully reviewed to have the best results.

National Interest Waivers / PERM Bypass

 

 

Harlan York & Associates has won many such cases by demonstrating that it is in the interest of the US to allow immigrants in this category to live here. These cases have gotten more challenging in recent years, and we will provide the support needed to overcome the difficulties.

Political Asylum

 

 

 

The system is tricky and overwhelming. New caselaw commonly results in a need to keep up with how to win, given the obstacles of a backlogged bureaucracy. We have a proven record and are up to the task.

Temporary Protected Status / Sanctuary 

There are a handful of nations whose citizens qualify for TPS, and we have helped thousands of these applicants seek sanctuary in the United States.

Faith & Thayer
Choosing the best immigration lawyer and the best immigration law firm can make all the difference in one’s life, in one’s family’s life. Choosing an immigration lawyer who is not very skilled, who is not experienced, who is not facile at dealing with the nuances of a body of law which is very different than other areas of law, and who is not familiar with the local climate, the regional and the national climate, and with the nuances of interfacing with a variety of authorities and organizations unique to the attorney’s specialty, can destroy one’s life, and can destroy the life of one’s family. We should know. We have seen the best of immigration lawyers, and the worst of immigration lawyers. If a doctor is incompetent and hurts someone, the effects on the patient can be devastating. If an immigration lawyer is incompetent, someone – and their family – can be terribly hurt, and the effects can be, in some ways, nearly as devastating, if not even worse. Before we became a couple, before we got married, and before we started a family, one of us had been dragged through the coals, dragged through the mud – and worse – for many years. Arriving to the U.S. under innocent circumstances at a young age, and then attempting to stay legally, our case – we refer to this as ours now, although initially only one of us was affected, along with several family members – was miserably mismanaged by an attorney who did not possess those skills, those experiences, that knowledge, which if he had possessed, could have led in the shorter term to a very different outcome. Years of stress, of family disruption, of fear, ensued. Incarceration of an innocent individual. Deportation. Disruption of the family unit. Children without one of their parents. Years of legal proceedings, legal wrangling, motion after motion filed, hearing after hearing, all to no avail. Small fortunes spent and wasted. Nights of worrying. Years of worrying. And no one was a criminal, no one had hurt anyone. Hard working folks, contributing to society in many ways. Tax paying professionals. Members of the community. Further legitimate attempts failed for a variety of unfortunate reasons much of which was related to inadequate legal advice. Mistake on top of mistake, compounding and worsening. More time, more money, wasted. More major stress. To make a very, very long story (you should see height of the legal files – quote, with issues beyond even a challenging law school study case) very, very short, we were referred to Harlan York and Associates. Mr. York examined our detailed, complex, tortuous, and difficult history, made recommendations, and shared his extensive legal as well as practical real-world experience, and we began the process with him and his colleagues of making the wrongs right. In conjunction with his outstanding, more junior colleague Riki King, they relatively rapidly navigated us through the path to Green Card status. Correct paperwork was filed. Motions succeeded. Years of potential further trouble were circumvented, legally. Numerous phone calls and meetings ensued. Yes, there was some luck involved, but the most successful lawyers, and Harlan York and Associates are in that rank – know how to use such opportunities to their clients’ advantage. We are not world-famous chess champions, professional athletes, or broadcasters (all clients of Harlan York and Associates, with successful outcomes to their cases), but nonetheless we were treated as important people all the time by them. No email or phone call went unanswered. No question not taken seriously. And, to top it off, in contrast to our previous experience, it wasn’t about the money, the billable hours, the profit margin. The charges were incredibly fair, were spread out over time, and were NEVER the focus. Every phone call was not charged. Every 10 minutes of work was not billed. When you need a lung cancer removed, you don’t go to a dermatologist or a family doctor, you go to a chest surgeon, and ideally one who takes out a lot of lung tumors, and who is good at it. You also don’t go to a general or other surgeon who dabbles in lung cancer surgery but whose focus is primarily elsewhere. You don’t go to a surgeon with a poor track record. When you have an immigration problem, you should consult with an experienced, ethical, immigration lawyer, one with a good track record. One who knows far more than what they teach about this focused topic in law school. One who doesn’t dabble in immigration law, while also closing real estate deals, finalizing wills, and negotiating divorces. One who is laser focused and knows how the current system works (and doesn’t work). We could not be happier as to the outcome of our case, and we do not take this at all for granted, we know by personal experience how things can go terribly wrong when lives are placed in the wrong hands – not in the hands of doctors, but in the hands of subpar immigration lawyers. Harlan York and Associates are ethical, experienced, practical, and optimistic yet realistic. Gurus in their area of law. Highly knowledgeable about paperwork, processes, what could happen, what should happen, what might happen. Preparation, preparation, preparation. Outstanding preparation. Strategic planning – thinking about the worst and preparing for it, but attempting to achieve the best outcomes for their clients. Psychiatrists, counselors, immigration doctors, hand holders, and legal experts – all in one.
