One of the primary reasons people seek to immigrate to the United States is to reunite with family. Our Anaheim immigration lawyers are committed to providing husbands and wives, children and siblings, parents and grandparents with skilled legl guidance as they navigate through the complexities of marriage and family immgration.
There are generally two types of family visas available:
- Immediate relative visa - A U.S. citizen or lawful permanent resident can sponser an immediate family member, including a spouse, fiance, child, or parent for a family visa.
- Family preference visa - More distant family members of a U.S. citizen can petition for a family preference visa. The number of immigrants who are granted a family preference visa are limited each fiscal year.
It is essential that you file the correct type of visa application for your unique situation. Any error with your application may result in immediate rejection. Our skilled immigration lawyers in Anaheim have gone through this process many times before and can help you avoid making a costly mistake.

Being Deported? Fight Back With an Anaheim Deportation Defense Lawyer!
When the Department of Homeland Security and Immigration and Customs Enforcement (ICE) want to remove you from the country, you have to take immediate action. With the right steps, you might be able to delay or entirely prevent your forced removal. No matter what the circumstances are regarding your removal, if you are subject to deportation, you should be properly informed of the details outline below:
- The reason why you are being called to appear.
- How you broke the law.
- The consequences for failing to appear.
- Your right to hire an immigration attorney.
If you have never committed a crime and have been notified of removal, you are considered a "low flight risk" and most likely will not be detained. If you have been detained, speak to an immigration lawyer as soon as possible.
How to Fight against Deportation
Adjustment of Status
Through adjustment of status, you have the ability to apply for lawful permanent residency in the United States, however this option may only apply to specific circumstances such as:
- A current family-based petition.
- A current employer petition.
- One year after asylum is granted.
This is also commonly referred to as "political asylum". If you are seeking refuge from dangerous situations and persecution in your home country, you can come to America and seek asylum. Acts of persecution mean that you are being harmed because of the following:
Cancellation of Removal
You may be eligible for cancellation of removal based on the amount of time you have been in the U.S. Two types of cancellation exist: one for lawful permanent residents and one for undocumented individuals.
Crimes and Deportation
If you have a past conviction, in certain circumstances, you may be able to apply for waivers or post-conviction relief. In these situations, you may need to return to criminal court to vacate the conviction.
