Frequently Asked Questions

There are several reasons why it can be beneficial to hire an immigration attorney when navigating the immigration process.

  1. Complexity: The immigration process can be complex and confusing, with many forms and procedures to follow. An immigration attorney can help guide you through the process, explain your options, and ensure that all the necessary documentation is complete and accurate.
  2. Expertise: Immigration attorneys are trained and licensed in immigration law and have a deep understanding of the laws, regulations, and policies that apply to your case. They can help you understand the legal requirements and how they apply to your situation.
  3. Representation: An immigration attorney can represent you in front of immigration officials and in court. They can advocate for you, explain your case, and help you prepare for interviews or hearings.
  4. Improved chances of success: Having an attorney on your side can greatly increase your chances of a successful outcome. They know the ins and outs of the system, and can anticipate issues that may arise and address them proactively.
  5. Protection against fraud: Hiring an immigration attorney can also protect you against fraud or other illegal activities. Notarios or “immigration consultants” who are not licensed attorneys may engage in fraud or other illegal activities, but attorney are regulated and have a code of conduct to abide by.
  6.  

If you fail to meet the eligibility requirements for your immigration appeal, there may be a few options available to you, depending on your specific situation.

  1. File a motion to reopen: If new evidence is available that was not previously submitted, you may be able to file a motion to reopen the case with the same immigration court.
  2. File a motion to reconsider: If the immigration judge made an error in the original decision, you may be able to file a motion to reconsider the case with the same court.
  3. File a new application: If you are still eligible for a different immigration benefit, you may be able to file a new application with U.S. Citizenship and Immigration Services (USCIS) or the Department of State.
  4. File an appeal to the Board of Immigration Appeals (BIA): If your appeal was denied by an immigration judge, you may be able to file an appeal to the BIA, the highest administrative body for interpreting and applying immigration laws.

It is important to note that these options may have time limits and specific requirements, so it would be best to consult with an immigration attorney to understand the options you have and their chances of success.

There are several ways to stop deportation or removal proceedings, depending on your specific situation. Some possible options may include:

  1. Requesting relief from removal: If you meet the eligibility requirements, you may be able to request relief from removal, such as asylum, withholding of removal, or relief under the Convention Against Torture.
  2. Filing for adjustment of status: If you are eligible to apply for a green card, you may be able to file for an adjustment of status and obtain lawful permanent residence in the United States.
  3. Filing for cancellation of removal: If you have been a lawful permanent resident or have lived in the United States for a certain period of time, you may be able to file for cancellation of removal and have your deportation canceled.
  4. Applying for a stay of removal: You may be able to apply for a stay of removal, which would temporarily halt your deportation while your case is being reviewed.
  5. Appeal: If your case has been denied, you may be able to appeal the decision to the Board of Immigration Appeals (BIA) or to a federal court.

It is important to note that these options may have specific requirements and that certain individuals may be subject to mandatory or expedited removal, making it harder to stop deportation. It would be best to consult with an experienced immigration attorney to understand your options and the chances of success.

The specific documents and qualifications required for an employment-based visa will vary depending on the type of visa you are applying for. Generally, the following types of documents and qualifications may be required:

  1. Proof of a valid job offer: You will need to provide evidence that a U.S. employer is offering you a full-time, permanent job, such as a letter of employment or a contract.
  2. Labor Certification: Some employment-based visas require that the employer first obtain a labor certification from the Department of Labor (DOL) attesting that there are no qualified U.S. workers available for the job and that the employer has met certain recruitment requirements.
  3. Educational and professional qualifications: You will need to provide evidence of your education and professional qualifications, such as diplomas, degrees, and professional licenses.
  4. Proof of Specialty Occupation: Some employment-based visas such as H-1B require that the job you are offered is a specialty occupation, meaning that it requires the theoretical and practical application of a body of highly specialized knowledge and that the job typically requires a bachelor’s degree or higher in a specific field.
  5. Proof of financial support: You will need to provide evidence that you have enough money to support yourself while in the United States, such as bank statements or a letter of financial support from the employer.
  6. Background checks and security clearances: All applicants are subject to background and security checks and fingerprinting.

It is important to note that this is not an exhaustive list and that you may need to provide additional documents or information depending on the type of visa and the specific circumstances of your case. It would be best to consult with an experienced immigration attorney to understand what exactly you need for your specific case.
