Family Immigration

Immigration law is changing all the time. Currently US Citizens and lawful permanent residents can petition for a green card for specific family members to come and live / work in the United States permanently. US citizens can petition for relatives including spouses, children, parents, siblings and even step-children or step-parents. For more information visit our Family Immigration page.


There are many occasions where an immigration authority such as ICE or the DHS can order the removal of individuals from the US. If you are living in the United States without correct documentation or you have violated the terms of your visa, you may still have several options to cancel your removal if you find yourself in removal proceedings. Let us focus on removing the stress and worries by facilitating your defense. Contact Said & Associates today for immediate help!
