Visas, Green Cards, Deportation & Citizenship
U.S. immigration laws and proceedings are notoriously complex. There are deadlines to be met, paperwork to be filled out to the letter and ever-changing laws that must be complied with if you are to have the best opportunity to obtaining a visa or becoming a citizen. In any immigration matter, you may find that hiring an attorney can speed up the process by helping you avoid unnecessary delays or issues. You can also experience peace of mind in knowing that your application, hearing or other immigration-related matter will be handled properly and with your best interests in mind.
An immigration lawyer may be able to help you in a number of different ways. This may include:
- Handling your application for an immigrant or non-immigrant visa.
- Working with you to adjust your immigration status.
- Applying for the diversity lottery to obtain a green card.
- Filing an appeal after a denied application or negative result in an immigration hearing.
- Representing your interests in the face of threatened deportation/removal from the U.S.
- Helping you bring a family member over from another country.
- Handling asylum proceedings if you are facing persecution in your home country.
- Determining what steps need to be taken for you to become a U.S. citizen, and helping you carry these out.
- Representing you at any type of immigration hearing.
The outcome of your immigration matter may affect literally every area of your life. Whether you wish to work in the United States, study, visit or become a citizen or permanent resident, an attorney can help you determine how to move forward. If you are already in the U.S. and are facing deportation, an attorney can work to protect you from removal. The best way to get started is to contact a lawyer who can provide you with helpful insight related to your particular case.
