It is often said that U.S. immigration law is only surpassed by the U.S. tax law in its complexity. This is not just an abstract expression but a reflection of reality for anyone who has gone through the immigration process. For one, it is a long and tedious process, and if you are contemplating getting started in the process or even if you have started it and you are in the Aurora area, you need the services of an immigration lawyer to help you navigate the system.
At the law firm of Joseph & Hall, P.C., we have experienced immigration lawyers in Aurora who handle a variety of immigration cases, including the following:
U.S. immigration law allows U.S. citizens and green card holders to petition for their family members to become permanent residents themselves and, if they wish, to become U.S. citizens when they are eligible. However, not every family member qualifies to migrate as a relative of a U.S. citizen or permanent resident. Rather, the law delineates which family members qualify and what needs to be done to establish those familial relationships. Our team of immigration lawyers in Aurora routinely helps clients not only to petition for their qualifying relatives but to do so in a manner that does not cause any delays in a system already known to take a very long time.
If you are a U.S. employer and need to hire someone from outside the country, you will first need to petition the U.S. Citizenship and Immigration Services (USCIS) for that prospective employee to be given a work visa that will allow them to enter and work in the United States. However, the process of getting the visa approved is too complicated to explain fully here. Just like the tax code, the rules and regulations that must be followed and satisfied before such a visa is approved are numerous and complex. However, at Joseph & Hall, P.C., this is something we routinely do to our clients’ satisfaction and can do the same for you.
If you are outside the United States and wish to migrate, you will be required to go through what is known as consular processing. This means you will need to submit all your documents for a visa application to a U.S. consulate near you, and if needed, you will be scheduled to go there for an interview. In some cases, even someone already in the United States may be required to leave the U.S. and complete the immigration process at a U.S. consulate outside the country.
For example, if you have overstayed your visa or have some other immigration violations, or if you have a criminal record or some other negative history, it may be in your interest to seek consular processing because your chances of getting approval could be higher compared to trying to deal with those issues here. We can help you make that decision after evaluating your case and understanding all the facts.
