There are significant moments when you will need an immigration lawyer to help you with a legal immigration matter. Immigration law firms, like Landerholm Immigration, can help you with just about any immigration case. Some have specialties while others have teams of people to handle it all. A US immigration attorney is legally educated and certified to practice law in the United States.
The following are examples of when it is especially important to use an immigration attorney!
You are unsure how to claim asylum and are in the U.S. illegally – You would want to work with an asylum lawyer to help you file the appropriate paperwork as soon as possible.
You are seeking relief benefits that aren’t offered to all immigrants – In cases such as a waiver, refugee or asylum, an immigration attorney would help you with working on a case with USCIS to have your claim approved for relief benefits.
You’re struggling to get a green card, citizenship or permanent residency status – During these processes, things can get confusing and complicated. Hire a green card lawyer or citizenship attorney who can help you through the process with less worry.
You’ve been notified that you are scheduled for removal or deportation – If you’ve received a notice that you are scheduled for deportation, you’ll want to contact an immigration law firm as soon as possible to see how they can help you stay in the United States.
You have been deported from the U.S. and you’d like to apply to return to the country – This can be a very tricky situation and will require an immigration attorney to walk you through what is or isn’t possible. This will be subject to the reasons why you were deported.
You’ve had an application denied – If your asylum, refugee, visa, travel or other immigration-related application has been rejected, you might still be able to remedy your situation. Seek the help of an immigration lawyer.
You’ve gotten in trouble with the law and been convicted of a crime – These cases have to be handled by an immigration attorney. Even criminal attorneys may not know how to help you through an immigration case involving criminal charges.
A U.S. employer who wants to hire you is not helping you with immigration paperwork – Employers are supposed to help you with this, and if they aren’t, you need to work with a qualified attorney who can.
