The process of immigrating to the United States is already complex, and a shifting political climate can only make things more difficult. Any unexpected challenges or roadblocks could lead to a visa denial or an immigration error.
Thankfully, a seasoned attorney could take the steps necessary to simplify this process. With their guidance, you could resolve your immigration issues and secure your desired outcome. Let a Montana immigration lawyer advise you on your options as you move forward with your case.
Immigration law covers a wide range of issues. A Montana immigration attorney could help a foreign national apply for a visa, pursue citizenship, fight deportation, or petition for asylum, and much more.
Applying for a visa is one of the most common circumstances where an attorney could help. Countless applications are filed each year, and only a select number of them will be granted. U.S Citizenship and Immigration Services (USCIS) grants visas for several reasons, including for travel, work, medical care, or permanent residency.
Both documented and undocumented immigrants are at risk of deportation following criminal arrests or violating immigration law. Thankfully, defense options are available that could delay or even halt these proceedings. A dedicated attorney could also help immigrants navigate the complex deportation process.
Many individuals come to the United States with the express intent of becoming a citizen. This process can take years and requires a person first to become a lawful permanent resident. Over time, naturalization could be an option. Our team could offer guidance regarding these options.
Finally, some foreign nationals come to the United States to avoid dangerous situations in their home countries. These immigrants can often seek protection when they arrive through the asylum program. Asylum is the process where foreign residents could remain in the country to prevent them from returning to a country where they could face the risk of persecution. To apply for asylum, an individual must first enter the United States. Upon arrival, our legal team could help someone pursue this valuable protection.
The unfortunate reality is that many immigrants become subject to significant delays. Hundreds of thousands of applications are filed each year, so it should come as no surprise that delays are not uncommon.
There are certain circumstances when a delay in the immigration process is primarily related to the high volume of cases heard by USCIS. In these instances, it might be possible to keep the case moving by having a legal representative contact a local USCIS office.
There are other times when an immigration delay is related to a lack of necessary documentation. If the government does not have all the information it needs, a case cannot move forward. Unfortunately, the need for additional documentation is not always communicated to the applicant. However, a tenacious attorney in Montana could help ensure USCIS has everything they need to consider a case reasonably.
Many things could go wrong when immigrating to the United States. A mistake in this process could upend your application to enter the country.
