Preparing for your Strategy Session

Your visa strategy session is where you meet your expert immigration attorney, and work with him to help establish the best visa for your application, to establish the strength of your case, and to figure out the best strategy for a successful petition.

It is critical to be prepared for your session. First, please make sure you have confirmed the time of your strategy session you agreed with our team, allowing for time zone differences.

Also make sure you know the medium for the meeting, whether it is phone, Skype, GoToMeeting, etc.

For Jon to help give you his best advice, you will need to have the appropriate information readily available. This may include documentation such as:

  • Information and dates of your qualifications
  • Details of any previous U.S. visas you have held 
  • Full details of any job offer
  • Your current and previous addresses


Your Strategy Session

During your strategy session you and Jon will discuss...

  • Your situation and goals to figure out the best visa options
  • whether you (or your beneficiary) meet the requirements
  •  Or what may need to happen in order to meet them.

If Jon determines that the standards can be met and agrees that we can provide you an excellent service, you can sign your contract and make payment instantly online.


Preparing Your Immigration Case

When you access the portal you'll be able to review your case information, notes, issues and next steps from the legal team.
