Doina Popoviciu, Corporate Affairs President at Artmark/ArtSociety, NY
Varvara Gokea came highly recommended by a friend. It was a great pleasure to work with Varvara and have her solve my immigration issues. She is the best lawyer, helpful and professional explaining everything along the way. I came to know what means to have an expert in your corner while extending my H-1B she obtained an extraordinary ability green card for me. In few months I am applying for my citizenship. Varvara is the lawyer to go to when you need immigration advice.

I should be receiving my greencard in the mail within ten days. Thank you so much for everything you have done for me and continue to do for my family. Without you I don’t think I’d
have control of my life again. I will never be able to thank you properly.

For Families

U.S. Citizens and Legal Permanent Residents (LPR) may file immigrant petitions for their family members to live in the USA.   For U.S. Citizens immediate family members (spouses, minor children and parents) there are no quotas. For other relatives of US Citizens such as children over 21 years old, married or unmarried, sisters and brothers, and LPR spouses, minor children, and children over 21 there are quotas so they have to wait for their priority date to become current.


For Employers


In order for US companies to stay competitive on the global market or just grow on the local market they might need to hire foreign specialized personnel. With the new regulations of Employment Verification it became harder for the American corporation to comply with all requirements. We can help!


For Foreign Students

Nearly 1,000,000 foreign students attend American colleges in the USA each year. They love America and our American way of life. At graduation many of these foreign students would like to continue living in the USA.
If you are one of these students read our Free Report “Should I Go, Or Can I Stay?”
