Green Cards

A Green Card holder (permanent resident) is someone who has been granted authorization to live and work in the United States on a permanent basis. As proof of that status, a person is granted a permanent resident card, commonly called a “Green Card.”

Citizenship/Naturalization

Naturalization is the process of U.S. citizenship being granted to a foreign citizen or national after he or she fulfills the requirements established by Congress in the Immigration and Nationality Act (INA).

Deportation Defense

Deportation (sometimes called “removal”) occurs when the federal government formally removes an alien from the United States for violations of immigration or criminal laws by going through Immigration Court proceedings.

Deferred Action Against Childhood Arrivals (DACA)

The Deferred Action for Childhood Arrivals (DACA) allow some individuals who entered the United States as minors, and either entered illegally or over stayed their visa, to receive a renewable two-year period where they are deferred from deportation and are eligible for a work permit.

Request for Evidence

A Request for Evidence (RFE) can be alarming.  However, these are often an opportunity for clarification on your application package.

Work Permit

A work permit may be available to you based on your status, circumstances, and your opportunity to submit applications that include a work permit.

Fiancé(e) Visa

This visa is used if you are a U.S. citizen who wants to bring your foreign citizen fiancé(e) to the United States in order to get married.

Family Petitions

A U.S. citizen may petition for certain family members to receive either a Green Card, a fiancé(e) visa or a K-3/K-4 visa based on your relationship.

Interview Preparation

USCIS contacts applicants with an interview time.  This interview is another opportunity to use an attorney to protect your interests.

Violence Against Women Act (VAWA)

The Deferred Action for Childhood Arrivals (DACA) allow some individuals who entered the United States as minors, and either entered illegally or over stayed their visa, to receive a renewable two-year period where they are deferred from deportation and are eligible for a work permit.

U Visa

The U nonimmigrant status (U visa) is for victims of certain crimes who have suffered mental or physical abuse and are helpful to law enforcement or government officials in the investigation or prosecution of criminal activity.

T Visa

T nonimmigrant status is a temporary immigration benefit that enables certain victims of a severe form of human trafficking to remain in the United States for up to 4 years if they have assisted law enforcement in an investigation or prosecution of human trafficking. An example of trafficking may include being employed but the employer not paying wages for time you have worked.

Asylum

You can get asylum status in the United States by asking for protection from the federal government. How you ask for asylum status depends on where you are physically located (within the United States, or at the Border or a Port-of Entry like an airport) and whether you are in removal/deportation proceedings before the Immigration Court.

Temporary Protected Status (TPS)

USCIS may designate a foreign country for TPS due to conditions in the country that temporarily prevent the country’s nationals from returning safely, or in certain circumstances, where the country is unable to handle the return of its nationals adequately. USCIS may grant TPS to eligible nationals of certain countries who are already in the United States.

Freedom Of Information Act (FOIA)

Freedom of Information Act requests may be used to find information on case based on the information held by multiple government agencies.
