FAMILY BASED PETITIONS
The family-based immigration practice has helped to reunite many families in the United States. Immigrating through a family member who is a U.S. citizen or permanent resident is the easiest and most common path to U.S. residency. Mrs. Ramos can help you determine whether you have a qualifying relative as well as to confirm whether you can file with a U.S. Embassy outside of the United States.
It can be difficult to know when and how to apply for asylum, especially when you have just escaped a difficult situation in your home country. It is highly recommended that you received legal advise from an attorney that will be able to explain the benefits and consequences of this relief. If you are contemplating applying for asylum, contact our office right away, most clients are unaware of certain deadlines.
DEPORTATION/REMOVAL DEFENSE CASES
One of the most frightening and confusing experiences that a non-citizen can face is the prospect of being detained and deported/removed from the United States by Immigration & Customs Enforcement. Non-citizens can be placed in "removal proceedings" before the Immigration Court for a variety of reasons: overstaying a visa, violating the terms of a visa, unlawful entry or being convicted of a crime. First we discuss your situation, then we give you our opinion of your options and the best course of action moving forward.
