Student Visas

Student Visas

Serving San Antonio, Austin and McAllen, Texas

Student visas are one of the most popular means by which young people enter the United States on a temporary basis. These documents serve as an important cultural link between Americans and non-Americans. With its excellent system of higher education, the United States is an enticing place for bright students who hail from outside of its borders.

For more than two decades, the student visa attorneys at the Gutierrez Law Firm have been working hard to secure new and reinstated student visas for its clients. Since the process of applying for a student visa can be difficult and confusing, young people who aspire to study in the United States should contact our compassionate team of student visa lawyers before initiating their applications.

Types of Student Visas

There are three main types of student visa:

  • F-1 Visas. These documents help academic students enter the country for a fixed period of time. They can be used for undergraduate and graduate programs of education and can be renewed as necessary.
  • M-1 Visas. These visas enable “vocational” students to remain in the United States for months at a time. Vocational students may be enrolled in practical or career-focused programs of study. These can take place at a recognized university or in a non-academic setting.
  • J-1 Visas. These visas can secure entry for “cultural exchange” students and temporary employees. Typical recipients of J-1 visas include camp counselors, au pairs, “home-stay” exchange students and interns.

Voided Student Visas

The student visa attorneys at the Gutierrez Law Firm are committed to providing responsive student visa services. They also strive to ensure that no international student is asked to leave the United States due to improper or lapsed documentation. Unfortunately, student visas can lapse or become invalid for multiple reasons:

  • Incomplete or inactive class schedules
  • Temporary withdrawals from school
  • Incorrect application or non-approved target school

Reinstating an Invalid Student Visa

To reinstate a student visa, students must meet several key criteria. These include refraining from seeking employment, remaining in the good graces of the law, and reapplying for admission to either their previous school or another approved institution. A student visa lawyer at the Gutierrez Law Firm can guide worried students through this tricky process.
