The United States has a system of laws that governs which persons may enter the United States, from what countries and in what number said persons can originate, how said persons may enter the United States, for what purpose said persons can enter the United States, how long said persons can remain in the United States, how much time can elapse in between visits to the United States, how long a person seeking permanent residency in the United States can remain outside of the United States, what lawful activities a person can engage in during their stay in the United States, what legal protections, public benefits and services can such persons lawfully avail themselves of while in the United States, which persons or entities can sponsor other persons to visit, work and/or remain in the United States and the criteria, conditions and fees associated with the same. There are also laws which govern the deportation of persons from the United States.
This system of immigration laws is complex, even for attorneys and can become even more complicated by events in your life involving the family court and criminal justice systems. It is therefore critical that if you wish to visit the United States, apply to work or have someone work for you in the United States, apply to become a permanent resident of the United States, become a naturalized citizen of the United States or sponsor someone else to become a permanent resident of the United States, or are at risk of being deported from the United States, that you consult with an experienced, knowledgeable and intellectually curious attorney, who can assist you in understanding the requirements and process applicable to achieving your desired outcome, prepare and submit the necessary paperwork, facilitate compliance with applicable biometric requirements, get you and any related person ready for any interviews with United States Citizenship and Immigration Services ("UCIS") or consular officer, or represent you in any immigration based court appearances.
