Family-Based Immigration

US immigration law has always been a complicated and convoluted practice.  However, the challenges associated with family-based immigration applications have increased during the era of the Trump Administration.  There has been a significant change in the processing of petitions and applications through both the US Citizenship and Immigration Services in locally (Orlando USCIS) as well as US Consulates around the world since January of 2017.  Accordingly, it is vitally important to have a professional analyze your case and assist you through the process to ensure you are not faced with a significant denial or delay of your case. Our Orlando immigration attorneys provide immediate attention to our clients to ensure that every petition is diligently prepared and thoroughly analyzed.

For individuals, we provide assistance with work visas, family petitions, marriage and fiancé visas, investor visas, asylum, deportation defense and citizenship.  To achieve your immigration goals we utilize the latest case management technology and web-based applications in order to allow our clients the opportunity to access information concerning the status of their case at any time, anywhere in the world. Our state-of-the-art software allows our clients to monitor the progress of their case, answer questionnaires and upload documents and data in order to instantly share information. Accordingly, we are frequently able to streamline the immigration process and maintain our commitment to provide excellent service to our clients.

Employment-Based Immigration

For businesses, our pledge is to provide strategic, personalized guidance tailored to achieve your goals in establishing a U.S. affiliate or subsidiary, transferring employees to the U.S. or investing in the U.S. We recognize the immigration process is full of challenges, obstacles, and unforeseen hazards. Accordingly, we work diligently to help our clients achieve their immigration objective. Our Orlando immigration lawyer serves as counsel to both employers and employees in preparing and processing labor-based certifications and authorizations for employment through both non-immigrant temporary work visas as well as employment-based permanent residency for professionals.

Investor Visas

Over the last decade, several of our attorney’s have developed substantial expertise in dealing with Investor Visas including the E-2 Treaty Investor Visa, EB-5 Immigrant Investor Visa and the L-1A Executive or Manager Intra-Company Transferee.  Our firm has an excellent record representing investors who wish to obtain a US visa to conduct business, manage their investments or work for a US branch or subsidiary. We handle all corporate and international work on behalf of the client to ensure that not only the initial visa is approved, but also to maximize the chances of approval for a renewal in the future.

For our E-2 an EB-5 clients our attorneys work directly with the investor in order to develop a successful source of funds strategy.  Notably, the source of funds analysis utilized in 2018 bears little resemblance to that used just a decade ago.   After the initial analysis, Colombo & Hurd will review the investment project of the investor’s choice to ensure the project’s compliance with regulations.  The hallmark of our success is our commitment to provide our investment visa clients the quality service each of our clients rightly expects.  Over the last decade our firm has filed hundreds of successful applications for Orlando Immigration investors for clients throughout the world and we are proud to continue to bring this service to clients into the landscape 2018 and beyond.

Performing Arts, Entertainers and Athletes

Performers, artists, dancers and musicians with extraordinary expertise are eligible for temporary or permanent residency based on their talent and level of accomplishment. At Colombo & Hurd, we customize  petitions to reflect the nature and extent of these individuals’ talent, accomplishments and recognition in order to fully comply with statutory requirements.  The Non-Immigrant P-1 Visa is utilized for internationally known artists, entertainers or athletes to participate in performances for United States employers or international employers while working through a United States agent. In order to qualify under this category, entertainment groups, athletic teams and individual athletes must meet a basic standard of international recognition.

EB-1 Visas are available for permanent residence for immigrants with “extraordinary ability” in the sciences, arts, education, business, or athletics. An immigrant’s extraordinary ability must be demonstrated by sustained national or international acclaim and by recognition in the field through extensive documentation. Our EB1 Lawyers in Orlando have extensive experience in filing successful applications for a variety of aliens of extraordinary ability.

Naturalization

We help people throughout Florida petition US Citizenship. Depending on the circumstances, naturalization can be an extremely complicated process that may require the attention of an experienced Orlando immigration lawyer. Our immigration attorneys frequently assist individuals with the naturalization process from the onset as well as those that have been denied a request for citizenship to appeal the decision of the USCIS officer. On many occasions, the initial determination of USCIS to deny a citizenship application is incorrect. Our experienced Orlando immigration attorneys frequently assist our clients in filing a successful appeal after an initial denial of a naturalization petition.

Reviews for Colombo & Hurd, PL

Review
I attended an immigration consultation at Columbo & Hurd with a legal client of mine whose case involved immigration implications. Attorney Michael Mendez thoroughly answered all the immigration questions that we had regarding my client's case. I was impressed by Mr. Mendez's depth of knowledge and experience about immigration law. He was honest with us about the immigration consequences and allowed us to effectively determine how to move forward on our case. I plan on using Mr. Mendez's services in the future and recommend his professional and knowledgeable approach to the practice of immigration law.
