Many find going through the U.S. immigration process a frustrating and sometimes daunting experience. The United States Citizenship and Immigration Services (USCIS), which processes immigration cases, is one complicated giant maze to navigate. Although it is possible to navigate this immigration system alone, it is better to have an experienced Addison immigration attorney to guide you through the process.
Before taking on your case, we must understand exactly what your individual situation is and what your immigration needs are. We do so by having an initial consultation with you in which we learn about your situation by asking you questions and reviewing any documents you may have concerning your case.
If you do not have any documents or are missing others we believe are essential to review, we could have these provided by your former lawyer, if you had any, or from the immigration office. You will also have the opportunity to ask questions during the consultation, and we will provide the answers.
Once we have obtained the necessary information from you and fully understand what your situation is, we will craft a solution or deploy a strategy to address your immigration needs.
For example, if you are a U.S. citizen or green card holder and wish to sponsor a family member for a green card, we will help you in getting that done. It is important to note, however, that not all family members of U.S. citizens or those of green card holders qualify to get a green card. The ones who do are typically a spouse, child, or parent, provided all other requirements are met.
It may be the case you are a noncitizen looking for ways you can become a green card holder yourself. An experienced immigration lawyer will analyze your situation and determine what would be your best course to obtain a green card.
Once we have obtained information from you during the initial consultation, we will discuss and give you options you may have to pursue and successfully obtain a green card. Applying for a green card can take many forms, with most of them being through family or employment, but the process of applying and getting the green card can be frustrating and often daunting. It is best to have an immigration lawyer help you than trying to go it alone.
In the unfortunate situation you find yourself in removal or deportation proceedings where the government is trying to have you deported, we can help. We know being placed in deportation proceedings is a disconcerting experience, to say the least, for many, but we are here to mount a vigorous defense for you so you don’t have to be worried about being deported.
These are just some of the situations in which we help our clients, but at Minsky, McCormick & Hallagan, we have experienced immigration lawyers who handle cases in all areas of immigration law.
