There are more opportunities than ever for international students in colleges and universities in the United States. However, the advent of the Student and Exchange Visitor Information System, or SEVIS, has made the process of acquiring and maintaining lawful status as a student more complicated than ever before.

Schools themselves formerly provided much assistance and support to international students, but are offering comprehensive immigration services less frequently these days because of liability issues. Most schools will help you obtain the necessary forms, but they will not help you fill them out. As your attorneys, it is our job to help you navigate the obstacles and barriers to acquiring international student status, so that you can safely embark on your education in the United States.

We can also help you with other immigration law concerns related to your status as an international student. If you have to drop out of school because of immigration issues, we can help you apply for reinstatement. Whether you have USCIS eligibility problems or a reduced course load has left you below the required minimum for maintaining status, there are things we can do for you.

If you are interested in staying in the United States after school, we can also help you obtain the necessary adjustment of status from your student visa.
