An immigration lawyer can help with a myriad of immigration services including immigrant and nonimmigrant visas, work permits, visa extensions, change of visitor or immigrant status, family petition immigration, or employer sponsored immigration.
The laws, regulations, and procedures set forth by the United States Citizenship and Immigration Services (USCIS) are complex and can be confusing to anyone applying for anything from a visitor's visa to asylum. A well-trained and experienced immigration lawyer can help an applicant cut through the fog of confusing terminology and frustrating procedures to explain this baffling process in plain and concise language. Having a clear understanding of the requirements and procedures eliminates the chance of misunderstanding or error and relieves the fear, hesitation, and uncertainty associated with such a complex undertaking.
An immigration lawyer can help with many immigration services including:
According to the Annual Flow Report compiled by the Office of Immigration Statistics for the USCIS and the Department of Homeland Security (DHS), in 2007, 55 percent of all new citizens naturalized in the U.S. were female. More than half of those naturalized were between the ages 25 to 44. The median age for all persons naturalized was 39 years-of-age. Two-thirds of all new citizens were married and 21 percent were single.
An immigration lawyer can be your best ally in your quest for U.S. citizenship, petition for a U.S. visa, or appeal a denial for visa or immigrant status. Do not try to navigate the murky waters of U.S. immigration law on your own, enhance your chances for approval and reduce the likelihood of errors by letting a capable immigration lawyer file your petition or application with the USCIS. An applicant that understands the laws and procedures in place will have a better grasp on the process and will find that the process is not as daunting with the help of an immigration lawyer.
