“Very Straight and Caring Anna is very caring and straight with you. Don't be fooled by people who want an attorney tell them everything is ok when it is not. Go to them if you want straight answers and will help to get done what you need to get done.”

“Excellent!! Anna was highly recommended to me by a former client of hers and a close friend of mine...I was so happy when I got my O-1 approval! Anna is very, very nice and reliable and her assistants are the same!”

“EXCEPTIONAL LAWYERS. This is the best immigration law firm I have come across in a long time. These lawyers are passionate about what they do. They truly care. I say this because I have met a lot of lawyers that do not even return phone calls from clients. I truly recommend the Asherson, Klein and Darbinian office because they took my very difficult case, put in a lot of time and attention and successfully completed my case.”

“FANTASTIC AVVOCATO. The best avvocato in America. Grazie Mille per la sua assistenza. Your fantastic team assistenza risolvere il mio problema. Ms. Darbinian, You are the Best: Bellisimo. You make the Impossibile, Possibile. After staying illegal for so many years, I am again able to travel. I am in Italy with my family because you help me achieve the American Dream. I will see you in two weeks when I travel back to America with my new visa. I will never forget what you did for me. GRAZIE MILLE.”

"... I would also like to thank your staff who have what it takes to get things done. But I would really like to say thank you to Nadia, as well, as she has been superb to me and really spent time with me."



Under the North American Free Trade Agreement (NAFTA), certain citizens of Canada and Mexico are eligible to enter the U.S. to work temporarily under nonimmigrant TN status.

The following are the requirements to be eligible for the TN Visa:

  • The profession must be on the NAFTA list.

  • The foreign national must possess the necessary training for that profession.

  • The proposed position must be classified as a professional position.

  • The foreign national must work for a U.S. employer.

Canadian Citizens may apply for the TN-1 Visa, and Mexican citizens may apply for the TN-2 Visa. Please note that the process for obtaining a TN-2 Visa is much more complicated than that of the TN-1.

Spouses and/or unmarried children under the age of 21 are eligible to enter the U.S. under the derivative TD-1 and TD-2 visas. Family members may study in the U.S., but they are not allowed to work.

TN-1 Visa

Canadian citizens applying for the TN-1 Visa must provide the following information at a U.S. port of entry:

  • A document from the employer outlining the job duties, the length of the assignment, and the agreed-upon salary.

  • Proof that the employee has completed the necessary education or training for the position.

  • Proof that the employee has all of the necessary licenses for the position.

  • Proof of Canadian citizenship.

Canadian citizens need not file a petition for employment; they must simply obtain TN status at a port of entry.

TN-2 Visa

Mexican citizens are eligible to apply for the TN-2 Visa. Unlike Canadian citizens, Mexican applicants must apply at the U.S. consulate in their home country. Interested applicants must meet the following requirements:

  • A document from the employer outlining the job duties, the length of the assignment, and the agreed-upon salary.

  • Proof that the employee has completed the necessary education or training for the position.

  • Proof that the employee has all of the necessary licenses for the position.

  • Proof of Mexican citizenship.
