In many instances, people seeking to immigrate to the United States can be intimidated by complex immigration laws. While immigration for some is a straightforward matter, others may make costly mistakes because they don’t understand the system or face unique challenges that complicate their ability to enter and stay in the country.
Fortunately, there are many qualified immigration lawyers in Newark and surrounding communities that can simplify the immigration process, answer important questions about eligibility and serve as your voice in dealing with United States Customs and Immigration Services.
Some of the reasons why you may want to retain an immigration lawyer include:
- Assistance with filing an application for yourself or your family members. Incorrectly completed applications will cost time and money to resubmit and if you are not comfortable with the paperwork involved, an immigration lawyer can be well worth the investment.
- You face the possibility of being deported. This may be because you’ve fallen “out of status” because your green card has expired, you committed a crime and were convicted or other issues regarding your status have come into play that may result in your removal from the United States.
- You are a refugee or you are seeking asylum in the United States. Situations like this will vary greatly from country to country at any given time and an attorney can draw on considerable resources to assist you and your family.
- You have been deemed inadmissible into the United States. This could be because you lied on an application, you committed a crime, you are a drug abuser or addict, you don’t have proper vaccinations, you have physical or mental disorders or you have been identified as someone likely to become dependent on government assistance. In many instances, an immigration lawyer may be able to obtain a waiver or argue in your favor through a much deeper understanding of immigration law.
