Who Needs an Immigration Lawyer?
Any foreign national wishing to enter the United States for any amount of time must obtain the appropriate paperwork, commonly referred to as a visa. There are many types of permits and, depending on whether you wish to come to the United States as a visitor or migrate permanently, it is important to know which is the most appropriate visa for you and your situation.
It is not just individuals that may seek the advice of an Immigration Lawyer. Any employer wishing to bring a foreign national into the country as an employee must familiarize themselves with the legal aspects of this process. It is the employer’s responsibility to verify the immigration status of their employees and ensure they fill out a 1-9 Employment Eligibility Verification form. If this process is done incorrectly, fines and penalties may be imposed by the US Government.
Types of visas:
Many people are familiar with the term “Green Card,” but what is it? While many types of visas can grant you the right to live and work in the U.S.A. for a defined period, a Green Card gives the holder the right to reside in the United States indefinitely. While this grants many freedoms, a Green Card is not American Citizenship, and further legal processes are necessary to reach this next step.
Aside from a Green Card, there are multiple other ways to obtain certain freedoms to live and work in the United States. Examples include:
- Non-Immigrant Visa
- Immigrant Visa
- Permanent Residence Visa
- Family Visas
- Employment Visas
- Student Visa
- Business Investor Visa
There are numerous others, and the list is extensive. Immigration Law is incredibly complex, with every individual case requiring a different course of action. A “one size fits all” approach is neither practical nor appropriate. Investing in a competent and knowledgeable immigration defense attorney and allowing them to navigate the complexities of immigration law on your behalf will make all the difference in your outcome.
Why Am I Facing Deportation?
A person may be facing deportation proceedings for many reasons, from breach of visa conditions to more serious legal matters.
- Breach of Visa Conditions: If a person enters the United States on a Non-Immigrant Tourist Visa and is found to be working, this would be a violation of their visa terms, and they may face deportation or removal.
- If a person has entered the US illegally and is currently residing there, they may be subject to deportation proceedings.
- If a person is convicted of a criminal offense in the United States, they may be subject to deportation proceedings. This often depends on the severity of the crime and the judgment of the immigration authorities in the individual case. It is worth noting that Green Card holders may also face deportation if convicted of an aggravated felony.
The initiation of deportation or removal proceedings does not necessarily mean that you will be removed from the United States. Each case is disputable, and a Cancellation of Removal can be sought. Cancellation of Removal is a process whereby a person’s illegal status may be adjusted to legal, allowing them to continue to reside in the US.
By investing in strong legal representation, discovering what your rights and obligations are and following the correct procedures, you can significantly improve your chances of staying in the United States.
