Every year many thousands of legal immigrants in the United States apply for visas to have their fiancée, spouse or other family member join them in America. The difference between a successful family visa application and a denial is often determined by the immigration lawyer’s skills and determination.

When you hire Hanlon Law Group, we handle everything. Our services include gathering all necessary documents, preparing all forms accurately, and submitting your application according to strict timelines and attorney representation at USCIS interviews.
The process includes:
