Nadine Atkinson Flowers

I look like YOU. I talk like YOU. I am YOU. As a Jamaican immigrant in the USA I understand, I am your Caribbean connection. My accent, language, history, culture are all yours. So I know how to represent you. I know first hand the anxiety you feel as you go through the immigration process. Are you filing for your husband, wife, fiance, kids, parents or brothers and sisters? Is the process getting you down or confusing you?  I will fight for you. If you  need a visitor’s visa, student visa or a work permit, I will help you. With almost 15 years experience as a lawyer I can help you prove your case. When you are filing and need documents from “home” I know the local legal system. I was a prosecutor and a defense Attorney, so I have the experience needed to present your case and also the understanding of what documents you need.

I regularly give talks on the law about lawyers and the law,  about dos and don’ts for immigration filings on the radio,  about knowing your rights under different Jamaican laws on Facebook and on immigration youtube, as well as dos and don’ts for business owners on zoom. I volunteer with several legal, business, children and community service organizations in Jamaica and in the USA. I also write a lot of “How to Dos” to show you how to get the legal system to help you.

    Frequently Asked Questions

    How long after paying the fees for a filing petition does the sponsor have to submit the affidavit of support

    That depends on when the sponsor gets a notice from immigration to say that they are ready for those fees. A lot has to happen before this step is even reached.

     

    Can I petition/file for my niece or nephew?

    Generally that is not possible. Citizens and legal permanent residents cannot petition for a niece or nephew. If they are under the age of 18 you can adopt them legally and then petition for them.
