Immigration attorneys specialize in immigration law and can help win your case and avoid complications, simplifying the immigration process.
Many people turn to government agencies for assistance with immigration advice. This can be a mistake because these agencies do not take the responsibility for the information that they give out, which is sometimes not applicable to a particular case. In fact, the information officers of government agencies are not always up to date on new laws and procedures. Also, each case can be dramatically different, and these agencies don't have the time to fully understand each case and give the information required for that particular situation.
American immigration law is divisive and complicated, and changes constantly. An immigration attorney can help with such applications as: obtaining a work visa for the USA or other type of visa; obtaining a green card, naturalization, adoptions, political asylum and other immigration applications.
In the United States, persons born in the country are considered to be citizens. A foreign born citizen who naturalizes is also considered a United States citizen. If an individual is not a citizen of the United States, he/she is considered a foreign national. Foreign nationals can include lawful permanent residents or non-residents, immigrants or non-immigrants, legal or illegal.
Immigration attorneys deal with paperwork for foreign nationals who live in the United States permanently or temporarily, including their rights, duties and legal obligations. Immigration attorneys also deal with those who enter the United States illegally by fraud or otherwise attempt to illegally transport foreign nationals from abroad.
