Do I Need an Immigration Attorney?

Sonia Mann, Attorney at Parikh Law Group

Immigration can be a long and complicated process, and it can be challenging for many people to navigate the complex laws and regulations on your own. Language barriers, cultural considerations, and complex international politics can make the process prolonged and difficult. This is why having an immigration attorney with knowledge and experience can make a difference in the outcome of your immigration matter. 

Immigration lawyers are trained and experienced to provide legal assistance and representation to individuals and families seeking to immigrate to the United States. In this article, we will explore what immigration lawyers actually do and how Parikh Law Group’s immigration attorneys can help.

What Do Immigration Lawyers Do?

Immigration lawyers help people navigate the complex process of obtaining visas, green cards, and citizenship. They work with clients to understand their unique circumstances and help them achieve their immigration goals. The following are some of the services that immigration lawyers typically provide:

  • Visa and Green Card Applications: Immigration lawyers can assist clients with the process of applying for visas or green cards. They can provide guidance on the type of visa or green card that is most appropriate for the client to apply for given their unique situation, help obtain requisite documentation and complete the necessary paperwork, and ensure all other requirements are met. If an issue arises, an immigration attorney will have the experience and skills needed to know how to appropriately respond, increasing the chances of a better outcome.
  • Immigration Appeals: If a visa or green card application is denied, an immigration attorney can help file an appeal or a motion to reopen the case. They can help clients understand their legal options and develop a strategy to pursue their claims.
  • Deportation Defense: If a person faces deportation, an immigration lawyer can provide legal representation and help them understand their rights. They can file motions to reopen the case, request a stay of removal, and represent the client in immigration court.
  • Citizenship: Immigration attorneys can help clients with the process of becoming U.S. citizens. They help clients understand the specific nuances and requirements for naturalization, prepare the necessary paperwork, and can provide representation and guidance to them regarding their civics exams and naturalization interviews.
  • Employment-Based Immigration: Immigration lawyers can assist employers sponsor foreign workers for visas or green cards in a number of visa categories. They can advise on the appropriate visa or green card based upon the employment type, complete the necessary paperwork and other related documents, and ensure compliance with all legal requirements.
