M-2 Visa Lawyers

Gaining a visa to the United States is a goal that many people have set for themselves. By obtaining this visa, they may gain the ability to fully pursue their dreams, and they may even decide to try for citizenship in the future. Before that can happen, however, people must decide upon which visa for which to apply. The M-2 visa is an option for those who are the dependents of students.

Who Qualifies for an M-2 Visa
Individuals who qualify for M-2 visas are those who are dependents of students in the United States. Some people receive a visa to study in this country, but they have dependents back in another country. This type of visa allows them to come live here if they qualify and if their applications are accepted. A dependent spouse is one of the people who may qualify. Another is a child under the age of 21 years. People who fall into one of these categories can often come to the country.

Requirements and Stipulations
When people are seeking out this type of visa, they need to provide the necessary proof that they are either a spouse or a child of the person who is obtaining an education. Upon arrival, children are permitted to attend primary and secondary schools; however, people who are in the country on an M-2 visa are not permitted to attend college or university. They would need to apply for a student visa. Also, individuals on this type of visa are not allowed to work; they would have to apply for a work visa.

Hiring a Lawyer as an Important Option
Instead of trying to figure out all of this information by yourself, you should look into hiring an immigration attorney to help guide you through the process. Having your family together is very important to you, and it is especially necessary when you are the one who provides for the family. Even if you feel confident that you can obtain the necessary documentation and go through the process without assistance, it may take longer than it would without a lawyer present. By that point, your family may be in financial disarray.

Gathering Necessary Paperwork
When you are trying to hep people get here on an M-2 visa, you are going to make sure you have all of the proper paperwork. Failure to do so could mean that your application is quickly denied. Let’s say that you are trying to help your spouse and your children get to the United States. You aren’t going to just need paperwork for yourself; you are going to need it for all of them as well. A lawyer can help you to discover the places where you can obtain copies if necessary and assist you in keeping all of the material organized.

Helping Family Members Obtain Opportunities
Once your spouse and your children have arrived, they likely do not just want to sit around and do nothing while you pursue your dreams. Since your children are allowed to attend primary and secondary school, you can begin to research school districts so that you can find out where you want to live. Also, you may have children who want to enter college or a spouse who wants to get a job, and you can speak with the immigration attorney about other types of visas that may prove more suitable for them.

Explaining Terms
Chances are, you aren’t the only one who wants to fully understand what is going on with your visa and the visas for your family. An immigration attorney proves a valuable resource for all of you going through the process. The goal is to make sure that each individual receives the appropriate visa and that all parties understand the rights to which they are entitled with the corresponding visa. By working with the immigration attorney, you can have fast and efficient answers to your most important questions instead of just waiting for one to manifest out of thin air.

Alternative Options
Even if you put together your application in a timely fashion, a reason may still exist as to why you are denied. Instead of feeling as though you must give up and accept defeat, you can work with the immigration lawyer to explore a host of other options as well. For example, right now, you may have a sense that you aren’t going to get approved. Instead of waiting for that denial to come through, start working now to explore other options that could work for your family.

Your Own Visa
Now that you are thinking about the M-2 visa, you may realize that you didn’t ask certain important questions about your own visa when you obtained it or that certain parts of the immigration process are still unclear to you. Instead of just waiting for problems to happen before you get answers to these questions, take the time to speak to your lawyer now. Even if in the past you did not have the best guidance or any guidance at all, you can reverse the effects of that now by talking to your immigration attorney.

Obtaining an M-2 visa is an important part of your success and happiness while you are in this country. You may feel that it is impossible to enjoy a high level of these qualities when your family members are living far away in another country.
