In this week’s Immigration Law for Tech Startups podcast, my partner, Anita Koumriqian, joins our discussion on immigration from a family perspective.
We cover everything you need to know about how it works, if you want to bring family members to the United States, whether you have a green card or citizenship already, or whether you’re going to be moving here on some other type of visa. Who can you bring with you? Can they work? How long can they stay? And what do you need to know so that you can take care of your loved ones in the immigration process?
