General Immigration Attorneys in Omaha
Community-Oriented Law Firm
Immigration to the United States is crucial for individuals hoping to provide a better future for themselves and their families. Unfortunately, it’s also an extremely complicated process that can take months (or even years) to navigate before you’re safely united with your loved ones. U.S. immigration policies also tend to change with each incoming president and Congress, which is why you’d benefit from hiring a law firm that focuses on immigration law and follows all new immigration policies and legal updates. At Carlson & Blakeman, LLP, our Omaha immigration attorneys work hard to stay informed, so you don’t have to. We offer a wide variety of legal services so we can help you with whatever immigration matter you’re facing, from applying for visas to being in danger of deportation.
Reasons for Immigrating to the U.S.
Immigration refers to the process by which individuals move from one’s home or native country to another country in order to reside, work, and settle permanently.
There are many reasons why individuals and families choose to move to another country, but some of the most common reasons our team has seen include:
- Reuniting with family or a fiancé
- Seeking asylum from religious or political persecution in one’s home country
- Working for a specific industry or employer
- Seeking new opportunities in education or life
- Seeking a change in one’s surroundings
Your reason for immigrating is important in that it ultimately affects the process you need to go through and the amount of time it will take to complete. According to U.S. law, there are four main means by which you can legally enter the country, including through employment-based immigration, family-based immigration, humanitarian programs, and the diversity visa lottery.

Who Can Sponsor Relatives for Visas?
One common legal service we provide in our immigration work is help with visa applications. Many individuals require assistance in determining which visa they’re eligible to apply for and filing the necessary paperwork. Additionally, we’ve worked with U.S. citizens who wish to sponsor their relatives but are unsure of who exactly they’re allowed to bring over.
U.S. citizens can generally sponsor the following relatives for permanent immigrant visas or green cards:
- Spouses or fiancés
- Minor children
- Adult children (both married and single)
Foreign nationals living in the U.S. who have lawful permanent resident (LPR) status are also able to sponsor a spouse, minor child, or unmarried adult child. Those who wish to sponsor family members must meet a certain level of earnings and agree to legally support their incoming relatives.
