Family-based Immigrant Visas

Immigrations laws allow U.S. citizens and lawful permanent residents to sponsor certain family members for a green card.  A U.S. citizen may sponsor a parent, spouse, child or sibling.  A lawful permanent resident may sponsor a spouse or an unmarried child.  A child refers to a son or daughter of any age.

Waivers of Inadmissibility

The U.S. has laws that determine whether a person should be allowed to enter the U.S.  Sometimes, if a person is inadmissible to the country, an exception can be made to allow the person to enter the U.S. despite being inadmissible.  This requires an additional application known as "the hardship waiver."  Within the Latino community, the application is also known as "el perdon."

Naturalization and Citizenship

Once you have had a green card for a certain number of years, you are eligible to apply for U.S. citizenship.  We encourage all our clients to become citizens at the earliest possible date.

Also eligible for automatic citizenship are children adopted by U.S. citizens, children born abroad to U.S. citizens and children whose parents become U.S. citizens prior to the child's 18th birthday.

Removal Proceedings

Individuals who have violated immigration laws may be placed in removal proceedings.  In most circumstances, the individual will have a right to a hearing in Immigration Court. Anyone appearing in immigration court has the right to an attorney.

Appellate Proceedings

Sometimes immigration applications are denied.  Some denials can be appealed.   Appellate advocacy is the process for trying to a government decision changed in your favor.
