Temporary Work Visas

And Other Non-Immigration Visas
If you wish to sponsor an employee to temporarily work in the US or are seeking employment in the US, there are many different types of non-immigrant work visas.

I've had a complicated situation with my immigration status and no one wanted to take my case but Charlotte did. She helped me deal with it the right way. She gave me directions and it helped me solve my issues.

E. Krutov

I just became recently an American citizen and I have to thank greatly to Charlotte. The USCIS screwed my case and Charlotte was instrumental for me to appeal. I was not going to do it and start all over again but she convinced me to go ahead. Thanks! She is a pleasure to deal with.

J. Machida

Charlotte Viener (& her staff) saved my life!. I have been living in the U.S for over 30 years, hold a green card, have never gotten into any trouble with the law and all of a sudden found myself facing deportation for something that had nothing to do with me, but with my (ex)husband. I went to her office crying and asked her to help me and she was very compassionate and professional at the same time. We won our case and now I am free to continue to pursue my American dream. Thank you Charlotte.
