Immigration court requires all immigrant defendants to legally prove that they should be allowed to stay in the United States. It has been proven that families who have an attorney to represent them during deportation proceedings have a significantly greater chance of being allowed to stay in the United States than those without an immigration attorney. However, according to a report from the American Immigration Council, only 37 percent of immigrants were able to secure legal representation.
Deportation is considered a civil infraction, rather than a criminal sanction, which means that non-US citizens are not guaranteed legal representation. The lack of appointed counsel means that many of those in deportation proceedings already face a disadvantage, and this may impact their right to a fair hearing.
Immigrants who have attorneys are more likely to get released from detention, are more likely to be permitted to stay in the US, and are more likely to receive the asylum they seek. Immigration issues are complicated and our expert attorneys could save you time and money by identifying your options and helping you find the best outcome possible.
We will assist you with filling out and submitting all of the necessary paperwork for an appeal of removal orders, and your chances of remaining in the US are much higher with a devoted attorney representing you before Immigration Court and the Board of Immigration Appeals.

One common type of immigration is family-based immigration. This occurs when one family member already lives in the United States lawfully, and another family member uses his or her relationship as a basis for immigrating to the U.S. There are two different types of immigration that are considered family-based:
The United States allows people with certain valuable skills to immigrate either temporarily or permanently to the United States. Permanent employment-based immigration allows 140,000 people per year to come the United States. That number is broken up into various subcategories. As for temporary workers, there are more than twenty different types of visas depending on what sort of work a person will be doing here and what the duration of that work is.
Refugees and asylees make up a portion of those who immigrate to the United States. These people are typically fleeing persecution in their home countries or are unable to return to their homeland due to some sort of extraordinary or life-threatening condition. Each of these programs has strict requirements depending on an individual’s situation.
In order for a person to become a United States citizen, he or she must have had his or her green card for at least five years. Under certain limited circumstances, this can be decreased to three years for certain applicants. A naturalization applicant must also be at least 18 years old, be able to demonstrate continuous residency, prove his or her good moral character, pass citizenship exams, and pay application fees in addition to other possible requirements. There are special rules that apply to members of the U.S. military who are seeking citizenship.
