Immigration Law

Legal Issues Related to Citizenship, Visas, Green Cards & Deportation

There are few areas of law that may have such sweeping affects on an individual's life as immigration. You may be interested in applying for citizenship, may wish to apply to work in the United States or may want to bring your spouse, fiancé or children into the U.S. You may be seeking asylum from harm that may come to you as the result of your political or religious beliefs in your home country. In all of these areas, immigration laws may apply. Having an attorney to guide you in the right direction, ensuring full compliance with application guidelines and time deadlines, can help you avoid unnecessary obstacles to facilitate the resolution of your case.

Immigration law addresses national government policies related to immigration (settling in or entering another country). In the U.S., the Department of Homeland Security is the primary government agency responsible for enforcing immigration laws and bestowing benefits on aliens.

Addressing Immigration-Related Matters

A key area of immigration law pertains to visas, green cards and citizenship. There are currently two main types of visas: immigrant visas and nonimmigrant visas. An immigrant visas is sought by a person who wishes to live in the United States, and a nonimmigrant visa is sought by a person who wishes to come to the U.S. on a temporary basis. A person may also apply for a green card to become a legal permanent resident, which will enable that person to live and work permanently anywhere in the U.S., own property and apply for citizenship based upon specific eligibility requirements.

In addition to helping a person apply for citizenship, a green card or a visa, an immigration lawyer can offer legal representation in handling deportation proceedings and threats to a person's status as a legal permanent resident or visa holder.
