When going through a complex immigration process, you want to be sure that you have someone assisting you who can help you understand the steps you must go through and all the available legal avenues and factors that could put your case at risk. You can look through their site and schedule a consultation to learn more about them and their style of representation. Ask questions during the initial interview, such as how long the attorney has been in practice and what types of cases they handle, to determine whether the potential lawyer offers the guidance you need.

- Visas and green cards: Depending on an individual’s reason for entering or remaining in the U.S., they can apply for certain visas or a green card. For instance, they can seek a diplomatic, immigrant or non-immigrant, fiancé(e), or U-visa.
- Business immigration: If a foreign national plans to temporarily conduct business in the U.S., they can petition for a business visa.
- Citizenship: A foreigner meeting certain eligibility requirements can apply for U.S. citizenship by completing and submitting specific forms.
- Same-sex immigration: A U.S. citizen or lawful permanent resident can seek a family-based visa for their foreign-born, same-sex spouse or fiancé(e).
- Deportation and post-conviction relief: An immigrant or lawful permanent resident may face deportation following a criminal conviction. They can contest removal from the U.S. by showing that their conviction was unlawful.
- Temporary protected status: Foreigners in the U.S. may be granted temporary protected status if the conditions in their home country make it unsafe for them to return.
- DACA and DAPA: Deferred Action for Childhood Arrivals provides opportunities for foreigners who entered the U.S. before their 16th birthday to get work permits, driver’s licenses, and social security numbers. Deferred Action for Parents of Americans and Lawful Permanent residents provides parents who have continuously lived in the U.S. and have a child who is a U.S. citizen or lawful permanent resident protection from deportation.
- Change of status: If a foreign national entered the U.S. for work, school, or travel but the reason for their visit has changed, they may need to apply for a different type of visa for authorization for the new activity.
