What can an immigration attorney

help you with?

Immigration to the USA

Perhaps the most common reason why applicants are unsuccessful when seeking immigration to the USA is because of improper filing of their application(s). The application process is both daunting and time-consuming. This is why we recommend that any and all seeking Immigration to the USA hire an experienced U.S. immigration lawyer.

Nonimmigrant Visas

In order to be admitted into the United States, a foreigner needs either an immigrant visa or a nonimmigrant visa. Non immigrant visas generally are for purposes of temporary employment or for schooling in the United States.

Deportation & Removal

Deportation and Removal cases are of the most complicated immigration matters one could have. Essentially, one has already been placed in removal proceedings and must appear in Immigration Court before a judge and convince the court how and why he or she may be eligible for relief from removal/deportation from the United States.

Citizenship

An application for U.S Citizenship is by no means an easy task. Many applicants have applied for citizenship only to learn that their applications were denied before ever having taken the citizenship test. Numerous issues are considered by the Department of Homeland Security in assessing a candidate's entire immigration record from their initial application for immigration benefits through their application for U.S citizenship.

Asylum & Refugee Protection

Under U.S. law, asylum may be granted to aliens who can establish they have well-founded fear of persecution if they were forced to return to country of citizenship or last habitual residence. The persecution must be on account of political opinion, race, religion, nationality, or membership in a particular social group.

Waivers

Immigration waivers are available for various grounds of inadmissibility and ineligibility for nonimmigrant and immigrant visas. Immigration waivers are available for immigration fraud or misrepresentation of a material fact to obtain immigration benefits (212(i)), inadmissibility for criminal and related grounds (212(h)), and certain health-related grounds (212(g)).

Our Youtube channel

Our experienced immigration attorneys provide video explanations on a variety of immigration law topics of interest.

We created Beyond the Visa to post educational videos about U.S. immigration law. Our animated videos provide answers to many frequently asked immigration questions.
