Immigration

Ever since the terrorist attacks of 9/11, immigration to the United States seems to have gotten especially difficult with higher application fees, increased scrutiny and longer processing times.

Many people try to handle immigration issues on their own without a lawyer. The problem is that itís often a long time before you realize you made a mistake on your application and the results can be harsh. Deportation, denial of entry into the U.S., denial of citizenship and missed deadlines can all be disasterous to your immigration plans.

Our experienced lawyers can help you by petitioning for foreign relatives, getting work permits, filing for a green card and even applying for U.S. citizenship.

Some things to know about U.S. Immigration in Virginia are:

  • Nothing is quick or easy. Donít pay someone you meet on the street to get you a green card in five days. If it sounds too good to be true, it probably is.
  • Avoid the legal advice of non-lawyer family and friends. Just because you heard about a friend of a friend of your cousinís neighbor got his green card two weeks after he applied doesnít mean the same thing will happen to you.
  • Immigration cases start out being handled by a special immigration court. So, donít try to handle your immigration case at the Fairfax Traffic Court or Loudoun Circuit Court.
