Afghan FlagCalifornia Immigration Attorney Handling Cases for Clients from Afghanistan and Pakistan

Recently, the number of citizens from Afghanistan and Pakistan immigrating to the U.S. has increased. These individuals require attention and representation from an experienced immigration lawyer familiar with these cultures and how to handle immigration matters for individuals and families from these countries.

At the Law Office of V. Thomas Langford, in Benicia, California, we provide experienced representation, advice and immigration guidance to clients from Afghanistan and Pakistan. We assist clients with family based immigrant visas from the time the visa petition is approved by the U.S. Citizenship & Immigration Services to the time the case is assigned to the National Visa Center for consulate processing. Contact us today for more information about Pakistan your situation.

By having our office coordinate with the National Visa Center for the payment of filing fees and the production of documents, the client can save time and have their case scheduled for a visa interview in a timely manner. We work closely with the National Visa Center, providing original family documents, completed application forms and a viable affidavit of support package from a qualified United States financial sponsor.

  • Our office also works very closely with the United States Embassy in Islamabad in processing family related immigrant visas. This includes Afghani nationals residing in Pakistan.
  • We also work closely with the new US Embassy in Kabul that is now processing immigrant visa cases for Afghan nationals.
  • We are very familiar with the Afghani documents associated with this process including the Afghani Identity Booklet or "Taskera" as well as the marriage registration certificate or "Nika Nama."
  • In addition, we are knowledgeable of the maternity issues that arise in Afghani cases due to the fact that the mother is typically not listed on the traditional Afghani Identity booklet. As a result we frequently coordinate with genetic testing firms to set up Embassy supervised testing appointments at the consulates.

If clients are engaged or soon to be married, selecting the right legal strategy is important. Depending on the priorities of the family, different strategies are employed to complete the visa processing work. Selected the right strategy for each client is essential to meet the client's financial, timing and processing time concerns.
