4 times you need an immigration lawyer

People immigrate to the United States for many reasons. Whether you seek asylum or are in pursuit of the American dream, the immigration process can be frustrating and stressful and the language barrier can be a challenge. That is why your best chance of remaining in the U.S. is with the help of an attorney.

An immigration lawyer knows exactly which forms and documents the government requires. This can be confusing to handle without help in a new country.

How can an immigration lawyer help me?

If you find yourself in any of the following scenarios, you would benefit from the help of an immigration lawyer:

  • Seeking asylum is a long and arduous process at best. With the ICE detention centers on the borders, it is harder than ever to enter the United States, let alone be granted asylum. A skilled attorney can help you navigate through the red tape and help you avoid deportation.
  • Obtaining a visa allows non-U.S. citizens the opportunity to remain in this country for a specific amount of time. An attorney can assist you with this process and make sure that you are applying for the correct visa for your situation.
  • Becoming a naturalized citizen of the United States grants you the to vote, the right to work and the right to live in this country. A knowledgeable attorney can assist you with the application process and help you prepare for the citizenship test.
  • If you have been denied citizenship you have only 30 days to appeal. An experienced lawyer knows what is needed to help you with the appeals process.

Immigration is full of challenges. If you have chosen to do so it would benefit you to seek an experienced legal guide to help you navigate the process.
