While it is possible to go through life without needing to seek the services of an immigration lawyer, chances are when the need arises; you would need the best of them out. Fortunately, if you are a resident of the Colorado Springs area, we have just that for you at the Joseph & Hall, P.C. law firm, where our experienced immigration attorneys handle a variety of immigration cases and in all immigration practice areas.
The most obvious and common instance you would almost always need an experienced immigration lawyer is if you are in trouble with the law and are facing deportation. When you are facing removal proceedings for a criminal offense, this is the primary time that you need an immigration lawyer, as you can be in violation of your immigration status.
There is a whole agency dedicated to apprehending and having deported those in the country without valid status. If you happen to be one of them, then you will need the services of an experienced deportation attorney to fend off the deportation and allow you to remain in the United States, hopefully with regularized documentation.
Concern for being deported upon being apprehended or otherwise being placed in removal or deportation proceedings is a top reason why you may need the services of an immigration lawyer. However, there are other less onerous situations for which you will also need an immigration lawyer, and these include the following:
Anyone who seeks an immigration benefit must file a properly completed petition or application with the United States Citizenship and Immigration Services (USCIS). If a petition or application is improperly filed, is missing information, or is not signed, the petition or application will be rejected – meaning, you will have to refile the petition or application with the missing information or issues fixed, which causes further delays. Having an experienced immigration attorney to help you in filing the required documents avoids this problem and paves the way for easier approval of your case.
Submitting a petition or applying for an immigration benefit is usually the second step in the immigration process. The first step is determining whether you are eligible or meet the qualifications for the benefit you seek. Even when you meet all the eligibility criteria or qualifications, you may have more than one option to obtain the same benefit. In either of these situations, you need an experienced immigration lawyer to guide you in the proper direction to go with your petition or application. In some cases, the lawyer can identify and have you address issues that may lead to your petition or application is denied.
If your case has been denied, or you are facing a final order of deportation, an experienced immigration lawyer can have your case appealed with potentially a different and better outcome for you.
