JF As a family run community immigration service, we believe in what we do. That’s why when it comes to supporting immigrant families, we firmly stand in support of keeping families together. Whether your story is that you want to enter the United States with your beloved spouse, that you want to live in the same country as your children or relatives, or that you want to create a family here in the United States, our team of attorneys uses knowledge, empathy, and dedication to support immigrant families to thrive together. In almost every culture around the world and throughout time, there is a universal theme that family is important, and we hold this truth dear to our hearts at Immigration Visa Attorneys.
Statistics do not tell the story of immigration. People do. Since its inception, this nation has been continually infused with the energy of newcomers. Yet their assimilation has seldom been smooth. The challenges we face today are not new. Only the stories are. We found the following article to be a perfect depiction of the type of cases we have worked on, and continue to work with. For more information or legal assistance, please contact Mark Daly at (303) 838-2879. We provide 10 minutes of free legal consulting and have affordable programs for families.

“My mother, father, siblings, and I had been living in a poor part of town in Guadalajara, Mexico. My father worked as a ranchero and my mother used to waitress at a local pub and restaurant. I was the oldest of all my siblings and therefore, the leader. I had to set an example for the younger ones and had to take care of them from the dangers of the world. One day, I was at home when I found out my father had been killed. It was a tragic day and my mother, devastated from the loss, wanted to move to America, speaking of being safer there and how America could help us all. We moved the following week, wanting to leave Guadalajara and the crime of the small town. We were missed and there was no one else to care after the ranch since my father died, so they closed it down, but it was necessary. We no longer wanted to live in such a dangerous place, so when we moved to America, we found out we had taken up all of the small apartment complex. After we moved in, there was no more room, so I guess we were lucky. My siblings and I went to school and had good grades, my mother working as a waitress, yet again. I grew up to be a police officer, wanting to be able to prevent crimes in my city, New York, like to what happened to my father. I thank America for the opportunities that it has given me and will be forever grateful.”
