Navigating through the U.S. immigration system can be a daunting task. If you are petitioning for a relative or want to bring a foreign worker to work for you – or if you are the intending immigrant – our experienced Vail immigration lawyers are here and ready to assist you in navigating the immigration system and obtain the benefits you seek.
At Joseph & Hall, we handle many and different types of immigration law matters, including the following:
U.S. citizens and lawful permanent residents (Green Card holders) are allowed under U.S. immigration law to petition for their relatives who qualify to obtain lawful permanent resident status. Relatives who qualify to obtain Green Cards under this family-based immigration category are spouses, children, and parents of U.S. citizens or permanent residents, among certain others.
However, just because the legal relationship for these relatives exists on paper does not necessarily mean the relationship is valid for immigration purposes. The petitioner and the immigrant must establish that a valid, legal relationship, in fact, exists. This is done by putting together a petition and application package with information and backing documentation to demonstrate that the petition should be approved by the immigration examiner reviewing the file.
A limited number of employment-based or EB immigrant visas are made available annually under U.S. immigration law to qualifying foreign workers. To migrate or remain in the United States under this EB visa category, both the employer and foreign worker must satisfy stringent requirements in the books to ensure only those special cases of foreign workers are allowed to migrate into the United States.
There are only approximately 140,000 visas of this EB category that are made available annually, and given the attractiveness of the US to foreign workers, one can only imagine how many would apply for this limited number of visas, and the numbers are staggering, meaning, getting approval for one is no easy achievement.
However, with the help of an experienced immigration lawyer who knows what needs to be done, you can improve your odds significantly in having both your petition and application for an immigrant visa approved.
In the spirit of one of the phrases associated with the Statue of Liberty, “Give me your tired, your poor, your huddled masses yearning to breathe free,” U.S. immigration law provides various ways vulnerable individuals either already living here in the United States or abroad can benefit from the law’s compassionate and humanitarian aspect.
Thus, those facing persecution in their native countries, those facing domestic abuse in their native countries or in the U.S., those who have resided in the United States for a long time and suddenly find themselves facing deportation, children who were illegally brought into the United States and are now adults with no legal status and so on have protections under U.S. immigration law that can be tapped to regularize their legal status or prevent their deportation.
