What You Can Expect from an Immigration Law Attorney?

An experienced immigration law attorney will help you understand the law as it applies in your case, as they will thoroughly understand its application in the myriad of situations that affect those who have issues before the various agencies that enforce immigration law.

The right immigration lawyer should be your guide in smoothly navigating through the sometimes murky and often tedious immigration process. This can reduce time, expense, and stress for you or your family.

U.S. immigration laws are complicated, and some argue they rival only the tax code in terms of complexity. For this reason and more, when it comes to immigration matters, everyone needs a good immigration lawyer – from an individual seeking help with visa issues to multinational companies that also need help with their business immigration needs.

Even though any lawyer might be able to research and handle an immigration issue presented by a client, the better option is to have a lawyer who regularly handles or has a concentration of practice in immigration law.

Things an Immigration Lawyer Can Do For You

  • Paperwork Preparation and Filing. Obtaining benefits under U.S. immigration law requires filing a lot of complex forms, including applications, petitions, and supporting documentation. Incomplete or documents filed with mistakes may not only result in denial of a benefit sought but, it will inevitably delay your case for months, if not years. For instance, an experienced lawyer at J. Sparks Law, PLLC, can help you file the right applications or petitions that are error-free and make sure you have all the information and needed supporting documentation to make it easy for an immigration officer to approve your case.
  • Legal Determinations. Before you file any paperwork with the appropriate immigration office, it is important to know what you are applying for. Check the requirements for your application or petition. An experienced immigration lawyer will conduct a thorough intake to fully understand your situation. The attorney will recommend a course of action to address your immigration needs. For example, if you are in the United States under a temporary visa that does not allow you to work, but you wish to change to a visa category that allows you to work, then the experienced immigration lawyer will discuss with you all your available options. They can then help you file the appropriate paperwork to change your status to either another temporary visa that allows you to work or an immigrant visa (green card) that is available if you meet the requirements.
  • Deportation Defense. When unfortunate circumstances happen and you have been placed in removal or deportation proceedings for some reason. A good immigration lawyer can mount a successful defense for you and prevent your deportation. Never assume that deportation is inevitable. There are often ways to fight for your valid immigration status in the U.S.
