Can An Immigration Lawyer Help

What is an Immigration Lawyer?

An immigration lawyer is defined as a person that has graduated from law school, has passed their law exam, is licensed to practice law in their state of residence or another state and is regulated by the state and federal government. An immigration lawyer will represent a person interested in living, studying, or working within the United States in a court of law or with the Department of Homeland Security. The Department of Homeland Security is a government agency that deals with immigration and nationality matters for foreign nationals that visit the United States. The Department of Homeland Security processes the applications and petitions of foreigners for legal status and they decide who is allowed to enter the country and who can stay within the country. The Department of Homeland Security also enforces United States immigration laws.
