Immigrant and Nonimmigrant Visa Lawyer
The United States offers several specific visas for almost every conceivable need for those who are seeking permanent or temporary admittance into the country. While there is almost certainly a visa that is ideal for your situation, the process can be complicated. It is important that your visa application is completed correctly since any error can limit your chance of success, and problems can often take months or even years to resolve.
The visa process begins with an online application at the embassy or consulate that handles the type of application that you are filing. Depending on your application type, you will have to submit documents and records that prove place of birth, education history, and employment situation. One of the most difficult parts of a visa application is the in-person interviews that are required for many visas. A skilled immigration lawyer can help you prepare.
Some nonimmigrant visas include:
- Work visas that require labor certification
- Temporary workers visas
- Student and teacher visas
- Mexican and Canadian professional worker visas
- Visas for religious workers
- Tourism visas
- Visas for temporary business visits or investors opening a business
Immigrant visas that we can help with include:
- Skilled, degreed, or priority worker visas
- Visas for various degrees of relatives such as spouses or children
- Fiancée visas
- Employment Creation Investors’ visas
Deportation Defense Lawyer
You don’t have a moment to spare if you or a loved one are caught in a deportation proceeding.
Deportations are removals from the United States in which a person is considered to be in violation of the Immigrant Nationality Act. Reasons for a violation include staying on an expired visa, illegal entry, or having committed a crime in violation of state or federal law. Immigration and Customs Enforcement (ICE) arrests can put you or your family in a situation of overwhelming stress even if you have not been found guilty of any legal violation.
Many people incorrectly assume that there is nothing that can be done to avoid a deportation. An experienced and tenacious representative can help you understand your rights, and fight to put an end to all deportation actions. Attorney Elliot Silver will consider every approach that can keep you in the United States, and will give you and your family an honest assessment of your options.
A deportation action can be defeated with approaches such as:
- Seeking asylum
- Adjusting your residency status in order to become compliant with immigration law
- Canceling a deportation based on a review of your status
- Seeking a particular immigration waiver
California Political Asylum Lawyer
An immigration lawyer can also assist you with the granting of asylum if your situation makes you an eligible candidate. You must be physically present in the United States in order to apply for asylum, and your application must be made within one year of your most recent entry into the country. In order to qualify, you must prove that you have suffered or fear persecution outside of the United States for one of the following reasons:
- Political Opinion
- Membership of a certain social group
The asylum application process proceeds as follows:
You enter the United States and apply within one year and apply using form I-589.
You undergo a background check by immigration officials which includes giving your fingerprints.
You receive a notice for an interview within three weeks of filing your application.
Your interview with immigration officials will be conducted so as to inform the United States government about your candidacy for asylum. You may bring your lawyer as well as family members and an interpreter to the interview.
The field office where you interviewed will return a decision within three weeks, but an officer may request further review if they believe it is necessary. If denied, your case may proceed to removal proceedings if you can considered to be illegally in the country.
