About Transparency Immigration
Transparency Immigration is a comprehensive immigration law services firm. We offer legal advice on a wide range of immigration issues to individual and corporate clients worldwide from our location in the heart of the Research Triangle, North Carolina. The Research Triangle is an area of North Carolina anchored by three major research universities located in Raleigh, Durham, and Chapel Hill. The Research Triangle is an energetic and highly motivated part of the United States. The area has been referred to as the “Silicon Valley” of the East Coast due to its large concentration of information technology companies and biotechnology startups. But above all, the Research Triangle prides itself for being a diverse, university-oriented, family-friendly part of North Carolina and one that provides a unique variety of social resources for the lesser privileged.
Our legal services range from non-immigrant visas to family, employment and humanitarian immigration benefits (aka “green-card”) and citizenship applications. In addition, we provide direct representation to noncitizens in removal proceedings. We also prepare responses to Requests for Evidence (RFEs) and file appeals with the Administrative Appeals Office (AAO) and the Board of Immigration Appeals (BIA).
