Need Immigration Help? A Lawyer Can Assist You!
With U.S. immigration policy in flux, many procedures that were once relatively simple have become complex and challenging.
If you are a permanent resident seeking citizenship or a non-immigrant seeking a change in status or extension, you may want to consult an immigration lawyer before taking any action.
Navigating through the immigration laws can become quite tricky.
Even permanent residents may lose residence.
For example, a permanent resident who leaves the United States for an extended period of time may unwittingly change his status. Thus, if you are a permanent resident and considering traveling outside the U.S., you may want to consult an immigration attorney before you make your plans, to ensure that you aren’t inadvertently impacting your long-term rights before reentering the country.
Likewise, many criminal convictions can alter immigration status and eligibility.
Therefore, any non-citizen charged with a crime in the United States would be wise to consult an immigration lawyer before making any decisions with regard to the criminal case.
A plea agreement that looks otherwise favorable might nonetheless cause problems with the Department of Justice and lead to removal proceedings, and the law is continually evolving.
Mistakes in the immigration process, failure to provide necessary documentation, conviction of a seemingly minor crime, and many other issues can have a long term impact on your immigration rights.
If you have questions about the immigration process or your immigration or non-immigrant status, take the initiative to talk to an immigration attorney now and get the answers you need.
