    Marriage green cards and citizenship

I am a first generation Chinese-American immigrant, married to a French immigrant, and I am an immigration lawyer. 

My family immigrated to the U.S. when I was a young child.  I faced the challenges of every immigrant: learning English, integrating into the culture of my new home country, and learning about myself in a society where I was a visible minority. 

When I married a Frenchman, through him, I experienced the difficulties of an adult immigrant: getting his French education recognized by American companies, postponing plans to find his dream job, and keeping up his confidence in a culture with different social rules and values.

These personal experiences led me to the decision to devote my career to immigration law.  I am especially interested in helping married couples with their green card and citizenship application.  I chose to specialize in marriage immigration and citizenship because I want to take what I have learned from my own marriage immigration process to help other couples with theirs.

I remember the emotional strain, uncertainty, and helplessness my husband and I felt during the immigration application process.   Before my husband and I were married, and while I was a law student, I applied for a fiancé visa for him, on my own.  It took hours of learning.  I didn't get everything right because I had to submit additional evidence, which meant more waiting and more feelings of being stuck.  The whole process was more stressful than final exams.

I share my story so that other couples going through the marriage green card process won’t feel so alone. I would be happy to listen to your story, and help you tell it to the immigration officer so that your application can be approved and you’ll be able to start and build your life together.

Avocate Jane Chiang
Le Centre de l’immigration Irlandaise à Boston, Massachusetts m’a conseillée de contacter l’avocate Jane Chiang. J’étais dans une situation urgente. J’avais besoin de demander d’ajuster mon statut pour que je puisse visiter ma soeur, qui vivait en Californie du Sud, et avant qu’elle ne décède du cancer au mois de mars en 2011. Pendant cette période difficile, je me considérais chanceuse non seulement parce que j’avais rencontré Jane Chiang, mais aussi parce que j’appréciais sa compassion et son assistance. Elle avait soumis une « Demande Accélérée » (Request of Expedite) pour mon dossier. J’ai finalement pu lui rendre visite et dire adieu à ma sœur mourante. Jane Chiang est une avocate très professionnelle, compétente, responsable et compatissante. Elle a trouvé le temps de répondre à mes e-mails, même quand elle était en voyage à l'étranger. Je suis toujours reconnaissante pour son aide et pour aider à accélérer mon dossier. Je la recommande vivement à tous, y compris mes amis.

Je viens de conclure la procedure de naturalisation avec Jane comme avocate et n’ai que de bonnes choses à dire. Elle m'a guider à travers chaque étape du processus avec soin et attention. Elle me prévenait toujours des problèmes potentiels, et faisait en sorte que nous ayons toujours une longueur d'avance sur ceux-ci. Je recommande Jane à toute personne ayant besoin d'un avocat en droit des etrangers

Excellent immigration assistance
Jane is a very experienced, knowledgeable and resourceful immigration lawyer. Jane helped my family and I navigate a very complex situation that had many moving parts. Jane knew the exact process to follow, but more importantly helped to walk me through the process and explained it to me so that it was easy to understand. Jane provided checklists and resource documents that ensured I knew exactly what I needed to and when. Additionally Jane went out of her way to make sure that I was fully prepared, both prior to and after my embassy visit. I would not hesitate to recommend Jane to anyone looking for visa assistance.

High Recommendation for Jane Chiang
It is my pleasure to write this recommendation for Attorney Jane Chiang. Jane was hired to represent me for my citizenship application in 2011. She has been diligently obtained all necessary documents to substantiate my case, which there were complications involved with my working for a US global bank in their overseas branch for an extended number of years. She was pleased that I have filed all my US tax returns while I was abroad. She is very focused and organized in every step of the application process. Her capability to help me become a proud US citizen was commendable as it involved not only the legal knowledge but also the human aspect as well. Jane has excellent interpersonal skills and I feel totally comfortable working with her and following her guidance. With her help, I am able to fulfill my American's dreams, such as home ownership here, kids receiving great US educations, and pursuing my business venture in this land of opportunities. She is a trusted partner that I am retaining her again for my family’s citizenship application. I have no hesitation in recommending Jane to anyone who may need of her service.

Honest and professional
My wife and I were terrified of the green card process . I have been living in the us illegally for 15 years . Jane helped us cruse through the process and pass every hurdle that faced us . She kept us informed and updated at all time and more importantly the way she interacted with us , we felt like having a friend who cares about our situation . We just finished the process and we are very thankful to Jane's remarkable service .

The Best Immigration Lawyer in the USA
If you are seeking an immigration lawyer who has experience on U-visa and VAWA laws, then Jane is the lawyer you want to represent you. She is extremely knowledgable on U-visa and VAWA related immigration laws. She is also extremely pleasant. She will guide you every step of the way as your immigration case progresses and inform you about your rights and what the law states. She is also extremely sweet and her willingness to assist you during the process is important. Beyond U-Visa and VAWA, she is knowledgeable on all areas of immigration law. I used her service for the U-visa and green card process and everything was done in a timely fashion. Now, I have the green card. Let Jane represent you. She is awesome!

Assessment of legal advice and services offered by Jane Chiang esq.
I recently worked with Jane Chiang Esq. on a immigration/naturalization case. I found her to be immensely knowledgeable about the law on immigration. She provided me with sound legal advice and I was particularly impressed by her attention to detail. She also accompanied me to the naturalization interview and represented me accurately and professionally. She held me to task on action items and provided great help in collecting and packaging all the documentation that I needed. I felt confident and assured working with her.

Attorney Jane Chiang
I was recommended to Attorney Jane Chiang by the Irish Immigration Center in Boston, MA. I urgently needed help to file an application to adjust my status so I could visit my sister who was living in Southern California and before she died from cancer in March 2011. During that difficult time period, I considered myself fortunate not only to meet with Attorney Jane Chiang ; but also appreciated her compassion and her assistance. She had put in a Request of Expedite for my case. I finally had a chance to visit and said good-bye to my dying sister the past few months ago. Attorney Jane Chiang is a very professional, knowledgeable, responsible, and compassionate person. She found time to respond to my e-mail messages even when she was travelling overseas. I am still thankful for her assistance and for expediting on my case. I would highly recommend her to anyone and all my friends.

Jane Chiang
My husband and I retained Ms. Chiang twice to handle our immigration problems. My husband's case was the first to be dealt with. We were desperate as my husband's political asylum was not renewed and he was facing being sent back to South America. Several lawyers, laymen and naysayers who heard our dilemma said we had no chance of my husband being granted an opportunity to remain where here where we had built a new life. A trusted lawyer recommended Jane Chiang because Ms. Chiang would be able to dedicate the amount of time, attention and court appearances necessary for a complicated case such as ours. We needed the thoroughness, attention to detail, competence and tenacity of the best of lawyers yet we could hardly afford it. Ms. Chiang took on our case and fought tooth and nail to save our family from being separated. Never once did she show the resignation or hopelessness others did. rather, she stove tirelessly to win a case others would not touch. The Judge himself said that on the face of it ours was not the kind of situation that usually merits the granting of residency, but based on the arguments and appeals made on our behalf, he was compelled to show us leniency. We were extremely grateful and did not hesitate to retain Ms. Chiang again to handle my own immigration case. I can say with the utmost confidence that I highly recommend Ms. Chiang should one find oneself in need of a tireless advocate. Rest assured that you could hardly find a better person in whom to place your confidence and precious resources. -Marcio & Genilda (last name removed)

Attorney Jane Chiang
I met the soft-spoken, professional, reassuring, Attorney Jane Chiang, after a nervous encounter with ICE and some two years hoping my file will be done with. I had suddenly been put on deportation. My family and I were traumatized we would lose each other. At the time I met her I was re-living through the mistrust and fear I had built several years back in my home-country. Jane and her partners at Sedna Law reassured me, calmed my fears as she personally walked me through the immigration journey that eventually re-united me with my family. Jane understands the values of family and how they affect the individual; she is empathetic, sympathizes with and rebuilds hope for the hopeless while maintaining a professional approach. The success of her client is primordial to her. Way after I received my green card she has always been ready to support and advise me through integration obstacles I have encountered at one point or another. I would recommend anyone with an immigration problem to reach her first for advice and follow up whenever the need is felt.

"Jane is a responsive, experienced and knowledgeable immigration attorney. She makes her clients her top priority; responding quickly to their needs and devoting her full attention to each case. Her deep understanding of immigration law makes me feel very comfortable referring my clients and friends to her because I am confident that she will take good care of them. I recently consulted with her on behalf of an employment law client whose case also touched on immigration law issues. She was able to give me exactly the information I needed to negotiate a great result for my client. I deeply appreciated her expertise and collegiality in that situation."
