Borders can sometimes divide families. The work we do helps unite them.
Serotte Law helps connect families in Family Immigration matters. Marrying a U.S. citizen should provide a direct path to a Green Card, but U.S. immigration laws can make it a slow and frustrating journey. We pride ourselves in helping couples and families in quickly becoming established and building exciting lives together in the United States. We also know that families come in all shapes, sizes, and configurations. Whether you are looking to bring a fiancé(e), spouse (including a same-sex partner), child, parent, or sibling to the U.S., applying for a family-based Green Card can be an overwhelming process, let us help.
