F-1 Student Visa
Why You Need an Attorney
An F-1 visa is often referred to as a "student visa" because
it allows the individual in possession to come to the United States for
the purpose of attending an accredited school full-time. Obtaining this
visa can be very difficult, as there are many requirements that you must meet
and many steps in the application process. When you work with our firm,

Eligibility Qualifications for Student Visas
Like all other visas, there are several requirements that you must meet
in order to be eligible for an F-1 visa, and you need to be fully aware
of these before applying. First, you need to be fully aware that this
kind of visa is for the purpose of traveling to the United States to attend
a school or other educational institute, full-time, and to return home
after your visa has expired.
In order to qualify for the visa, you will need to fulfill all of the following
- You need to be accepted by a U.S. government-approved school
- You must demonstrate that you have the funds available to complete your
full-time study without working
- You must show that you are attending school with an objective, such as
a diploma or certificate
- You will be required to demonstrate that you are fluent enough in English
to understand the coursework (some schools may offer special tutoring
to help you study in English)
- You must prove that you intend to return to your country at the conclusion
of your study
After you have met these requirements, your Orange County immigration lawyer
will work with you to gather the necessary documentation for your interview.
With the right attorney on your side, you can rest assured that all elements
of your application are addressed, and that you are fully prepared.
