Immigration law in the United States is notoriously complicated. This is true even if you’re eligible for a benefit and have a clean bill of health and a clean arrest record. Fortunately, a qualified immigration attorney can make the process less stressful.
The Role of an Immigration Attorney
Entering the United States as a visitor is relatively simple and may or may not even require a visa. Entering for a longer stay, on the other hand, can be frustrating and overwhelming, to say the least. This is where an immigration lawyer can make all the difference. You will almost certainly require their assistance if you:
- Have been convicted of any crime
- Have had previous applications denied
- You don’t know how to complete the process after starting it on your own
- You’ve been deported or have been threatened with deportation
- You’ve been waiting an exceptionally long time for a response on immigration forms you’ve already filed.
An immigration attorney works to help clients navigate complex immigration law, but their clients aren’t always immigrants. While it’s true an attorney specializing in immigration can help you determine the visa and green card programs best suited to your unique situation, they can also advise domestic employers looking to hire foreign-born workers. The green card process can be complicated on both sides, and incorrectly following procedure can cause very long delays.
