is easy with the Milovic Law Firm by your side. Hiring a visa attorney may be essential to a successful outcome. Whether you are located in Arizona, another state or even outside of the United States, we are dedicated and successful Phoenix immigration attorneys helping you achieve your journey to the United States.
U.S. immigration law offers are a variety of non-immigrant (temporary) visas ranging from tourism, study, training, employment and even the opportunity to marry your U.S. fiancé(e).
Some temporary visas are more complex than others. A tourism visa may seem straightforward; however, certain factors may invite scrutiny by the immigration officer and affect your chance of approval. A fiancé(e) visa should be approached with caution depending on the circumstances of your relationship and whether you have complied with the in-person meeting requirement or will need to apply for a waiver. Employment visas tend to be the most complex and require working with the Department of Labor (DOL) before you can receive USCIS approval. Regardless of your temporary visa need, consulting with an immigration attorney is advisable to ensure the best possible outcome.
The list of available non-immigrant (temporary) visas is comprehensive and you will not find every available visa listed on our website. You can visit the Department of State website to review every available non-immigrant visa here. If you have questions about a non-immigrant visa specific to your situation, contact the Milovic Law Firm to speak with a knowledgeable immigration attorney or send us a message with your inquiry.

Adjustment of Status vs. Consular Processing – What’s the difference?
Adjustment of Status
If you are already in the United States, you may be eligible to stay in the U.S. and apply for another immigration status – effectively adjusting your status. Adjusting your status in the U.S. has certain benefits, such as attending your interview at the USCIS field office of your home state. Certain eligibility requirements must be met to qualify for adjustment of status. For starters, you must have entered the U.S. lawfully and maintained your lawful status for the entire duration. (unless certain exception applies). Individuals who qualify to adjust their status may also qualify for work authorization.
Phoenix Immigration Lawyer
If you are located outside of the U.S., or do not qualify to adjust your status in the U.S, you must undergo consular processing. In a nutshell, this means you will attend your immigration interview at a U.S. embassy or consulate in your home country. Once USCIS approves your initial immigrant petition, your case is transferred to the National Visa Center (NVC) for further processing. The NVC, component of the U.S. Department of State, is responsible for holding immigrant petitions until a visa becomes available and scheduling interviews at an embassy or consulate abroad.
Adjustment of Status vs. Consular Processing may depend on your eligibility criteria and personal preferences. Your individual factors determine which option you are eligible for, or what option better suits your interests. Cost and wait times may also factor into this decision. Each case may be distinctly different and it’s important to consult with an immigration attorney to understand your options.
