Pasadena Immigration Lawyer You Can Trust

Helping you with your immigration issues

Whether your goal is to live permanently in the United States or to work here temporarily, whether you are an undocumented worker, a high-powered executive, or a citizen adopting internationally or marrying your foreign fiancé, attorney Frederick B. Benson has the experience to help you. For more than 30 years, he has assisted clients with the full spectrum of immigration issues, including:

  • Employment-based immigration
  • Family-sponsored immigration
  • Nonimmigrant visas
  • Naturalization
  • Certificates of U.S. citizenship
  • Travel documents
  • Green card renewal
  • Representation at USCIS interviews

Understanding the immigration bureaucracy

The U.S. immigration system is comprised of a complex web of intricate laws and vast bureaucratic agencies, each with its own rules, regulations and policies. He maneuvers comfortably through the red tape to bring you the best possible outcomes when dealing with:

  • Department of Homeland Security (DHS)
  • U.S. Citizenship and Immigration Services (USCIS)
  • Department of Labor (DOL)
  • Worldwide consulates and embassies

Applying for a visa

Applying for a visa is more complicated than just sending forms to USCIS. The U.S. government places strict requirements on qualifications and outlines inflexible procedures for filing. Mistakes on your application can lead to crucial delays and possibly a denial of the visa. Each type of visa comes with its own set of essential criteria, which your qualifications must precisely match. Attorney Benson discusses your short-term and ultimate immigration goals to set up a long-range plan.  He thoroughly analyzes your situation to choose the appropriate pathway, and meticulously gathers evidence that supports each element of your eligibility. He anticipates complications and troubleshoots before problems occur.

Constantly-changing immigration laws

Immigration policy is under constant debate and the laws are frequently modified. In addition, the various government agencies that administer immigration regulations regularly update their procedures, forms and guidelines. Mr. Benson stays current on the shifts in immigration law and updated on potential changes in the pipeline. To successfully advise you, he considers not only the laws as they exist but the possibility of beneficial — as well as harmful — reforms. Fastidious and dedicated, he relentlessly pursues your case and develops unique solutions in complicated situations.
