Center for U.S. Immigration Services: Lagos Office

Over the years, we have assisted many CEOs, Directors, Techs, Professors, high net worth individuals from Nigeria to set up businesses in the U.S. while we have assisted others immigrate with their families. The high demand for our services in Nigeria prompted the establishment of our Lagos, Nigeria office.

We know firsthand how important it is to have someone experienced guide you through the laborious immigration process for Nigerians. Most petitions and applications are denied without the insight and advice of immigration lawyers. However, what is more daunting is the visa application process and dealing with high denial rates at the U.S. consulates in Nigeria. With over 60 years of combined experience of our lawyers, we ensure you have the best chance of success without expensive delays and avoidable mistakes. Therefore, if you want to have a less challenging and successful immigration process, please contact our immigration lawyer assigned to Lagos.

Our Lagos office serves the entire country of Nigeria and easy access to one of the busiest U.S. embassies in the world for consular support if needed. In-person meeting with our Lagos office lawyer is limited, hence, consultations are mostly handled via zoom or by phone. The ability to work virtually makes it easy to cover the entire country while also preserving the possibility of in-person meetings. The Lagos office is staffed with well-trained paralegal support staff that help with your application process.

Aside from our Lagos, Nigeria office, we also have offices in seven cities in Florida, USA: TampaBradenton, ClearwaterFort MyersJacksonvilleMiami, and Orlando.

Walk-In Notice: At this time, our CFUIS Lagos office is seeing clients by appointment only. We are unable to accommodate walk-in appointments. Please call our office at 091-3485-7545 to schedule an appointment.

Why Hire CFUIS?

Immigration Services Offered at Our Lagos Office

Individuals who have distinguished themselves in the arts, science or business may apply for visas based on exceptional ability in their fields. To determine eligibility, potential clients must go through initial consultation which includes, but is not limited to a review of resume/CV and field of interest in the U.S.

Some visa applicants are barred from remaining in the U.S. or from entering the U.S. because of visa overstay, entry without inspection, immigration court removal order, misrepresentation or prior crime. Any person barred due to one or more of the stated reasons is inadmissible. An applicant may be able to waive inadmissibility if certain conditions are met.

A non-immigrant visa gives you permission to come to work or visit the U.S. for a short period of time. The U.S. government tells you exactly how long you’re allowed to stay in the country. The purpose of an immigrant visa, on the other hand is to apply for Permanent Residence. A Permanent Resident is allowed to live and work in the U.S. indefinitely. It is also the first step to becoming a U.S. citizen.

People whose lives are in danger in their home country can move to another country and apply for asylum. This means asking for permission from another country’s government to live there because it isn’t safe to return home.

The most common way a person becomes a U.S. citizen is by being born in the country. If you were born in another country, you can still become a citizen. The process of becoming a citizen is called naturalization. There are rules a non-U.S. citizen must comply with to be naturalized – Above 18 years, never registered or voted in election, paid taxes, does not owe child support, and has been of good moral character.

What is a deportation defense lawyer?

Many people around the world want to live in the United States, but just moving to the U.S. does not mean you are allowed to stay. If you don’t follow the right rules, the U.S. government can decide to deport you. That means they make you leave the country, even if you want to stay in the U.S.

A deportation defense lawyer is someone who helps you understand the rules of the Immigration and Nationality Act, which is the law the U.S. government uses to decide who should be deported. If the U.S. government thinks you have broken the law, a deportation defense lawyer will help you decide what to do next.

We provide comprehensive federal litigation to aggressively challenge the USCIS in federal court for stalled cases or to correct flawed decisions. If you are stuck waiting for a decision by USCIS or have received a clearly faulty decision, we can help you take the next steps.
