Most people have many questions about estate planning but never make a move to go see an attorney. Before Theus' free seminar I did not even know their were attorneys that specialized in only estate planning. Thank goodness I attended...as I did not even know what asset protection was, even though I had assets. Most people think a written will is fine and pass away thinking that things will be as they wished/stated. Most times that is not the case. I urge you to go Theus Law Offices for consultation. They are friendly and down to earth with your wishes being #1. I cannot say enough good things about them. Now that I have gone to Theus I rest so much easier knowing that my wishes...are going to be held up...just as I wanted...no doubt about it....Thanks to the Theus family !

The Theus Law Offices’ Family Estate Planning is a must from my perspective. I had recently lost my dad when I decide to attend the in-person Workshop at the time. My dad and I had attended a similar workshop some four (4) years prior but my dad didn’t elect at the time to move forward. I so wished that he (my dad) had done so because now I am helping my mom go through the Succession/Probate steps with a lawyer currently. If you or your loved ones haven’t made this decision with Estate Planning, I would strongly encourage you to attend this web-based workshop/webinar. Graves Theus is a great attorney to go with for this important step in you and your family’s planning for the future in many, many ways!!!

Estate planning is a complicated process, but my wife and I feel it is valuable and necessary. We started by attending an Estate Planning workshop offered by the Theus Law Offices and led by Jim Theus. That was about the wisest decision we have made in some time. We engaged the services of Theus Law Offices and have benefitted enormously from the direct working relationship with Jim Theus. They did not sign us up and then pass us off to a staff member. We worked with Jim Theus personally. When it was time to work with others of the staff, we found them friendly, knowledgeable, and professional. Jim Theus is exceptionally competent and patiently answers questions. His due diligence is admirable. We found their fees for estate planning reasonable and fair. You would be wise to consider using the services of Theus Law Offices if you are interested in estate planning. We are grateful for their help and recommend them to you without reservations. Our loved ones will also be the beneficiaries of a comprehensive plan, as are we. Doyle L Bailey

Obtaining an Immigration Work Permit: Application for Employment Authorization Document (Form I-765)


07 November, 2019

Being in the United States legally does not necessarily mean that you are authorized to work. As most know, working in the United States without a legal work permit is taken very serious. If you are currently in the process of obtaining a green card, working illegally in the United States may jeopardize the entire application.

According to the USCIS, most individuals who have a pending green card application are generally eligible to apply for a work permit. This also includes individuals applying for a marriage-based green card.

The process in obtaining an immigration work permit begins by filing a USCIS Form I-765. In most situations, this form is submitted with your green card application. If both the work permit and green card application are being submitted together, two passport sized photos also need to be included in the package. In the event that the green card application has already been submitted, a work permit may be filed with your notice from USCIS showing the green card application was received.

The necessary documents for first time applicants seeking a working permit include the following:

(1) 1-94 travel record (2) Copy of U.S. visa (3) Copy of your passport photo page (4) If applicable, any copies of previous work permits (5) Specifically, 2x2 passport style pictures of yourself taken recently with alien registration number (6) Copy of a government issued identification such as birth certificate, copy of visa issued by country other than the U.S., and other national identity document with photo and/or fingerprint.

A work permit is generally processed within five to seven months of submitting the entire application. Keep in mind, that this time frame is contingent upon submitting all the required documents in proper form and subject to the rules prescribed by USCIS. In fact, one of the primary reasons work permits are denied is for failure to include all signatures or required documents.

Overall, obtaining an immigration work permit is relatively easy. However, it is beneficial to obtain the help of well-seasoned Immigration Attorneys at Theus Law Offices to help provide for a successful application.
