Types of Visas

The Law Office of Gregory J. Eck provides comprehensive immigration law services and handles a wide range of visa applications for clients. Depending on your needs and situation, you may seek a specific type of visa, such as:

  • H-1B: The most common type of work visa and known as a visa for a “person in a specialty occupation.”
  • L: For working at a U.S. branch, parent, affiliate, or subsidiary of a current employer in a managerial or executive capacity, or in a position requiring specialized knowledge. 
  • O: For persons with “extraordinary ability or achievement” in the sciences, arts, education, business, athletics, or the motion picture and television fields. 
  • Family: U.S. citizens or lawful permanent residents (LPR) who are at least 21 years old may apply for an immigrant visa for an immediate relative (e.g., spouse, child, parent) or more distant relatives.
  • K-1: Fiancé(e) visa for U.S. citizens seeking to bring their foreign fiancé(e) to the U.S. 
  • JExchange visitor visa for individuals approved to participate in an educational or cultural exchange program in the U.S.
  • B: Tourist or temporary short-term business travel visa.
  •  F: Student visa for foreign students enrolling in an American university/college, high school, private elementary school, conservatory, or other academic institution.

Defending You Against Removal

Attorney Eck also defends immigrants in Newark who are facing removal (deportation). Deportation formally removes an immigrant from the U.S. and sends them back to their country of origin. Everyone has a right to a lawyer during a legal proceeding, so immigrants facing removal should exercise their right to consult an experienced defense lawyer. 

There are several options for relief from removal depending on your situation. 

Some examples include:

  • Cancellation of Removal for Lawful Permanent Residents
  • Cancellation of Removal for Non-Lawful Permanent Residents
  • Withholding of Removal
  • Improper Service of the Notice to Appear (NTA)
  • Not Removable as Charged (the government has the burden of proof to show that you should be removed due to a criminal conviction)
  • Adjustment of Status (if you were admitted to the U.S. legally and have a qualifying relationship with a relative or employer)
  • Asylum
  • Violence Against Women Act (VAWA)
  • Convention Against Torture (prevents removal to the home country if the defendant can show that they would endure pain and suffering intentionally inflicted by the country if they return there)
  • 212 (h) Waiver for Certain Inadmissible Offences (crimes that can be waived are crimes of moral turpitude, multiple convictions for two or more offenses, prostitution crimes, and simple possession of small amounts of marijuana)
  • Deferred Action for Childhood Arrivals (DACA)

Attorney Eck can take a closer look at your situation to determine which of the above options works in your situation. He will tailor a legal defense based on your unique circumstances and fight vigorously for your defense in immigration court.
