Immigration

We hold these truths to be self-evident, that all men are created equal, that they are endowed by their creator with certain unalienable rights, that among these are Life, Liberty and the pursuit of Happiness.

This first line of the Declaration of Independence is great if you're a citizen of the United States. Chasing the American dream can be a little tougher, however, when the country views you as an illegal alien. From a historical perspective, the issue of citizenship in California is all that more frustrating when the state was originally Mexican territory. Nevertheless, California has been a state for over 170 years which means there are rules to follow and laws to abide by. While they may not always seem to be fair, and far from easy to follow, there is still hope for you and your family when it comes to American citizenship.

There have been several laws passed — notably since the mid-2000's — to help protect all immigrants. From the Victims of Crime Equity Act of 2016 to the Racial and Identity Profiling Act of the same year, strides are being taken to do what is ethically and morally right. At the same time, in today's political climate, you can never be too safe.

Different Types of Immigration Law Cases

While immigration law can be complex and complicated, any immigration case can typically fall under one of these categories:

Family Immigration Law

If you're already a citizen and want to bring other family members over to America, this is considered a family immigration law case. In order to qualify for a visa, you must submit a petition, prove your relationship, and agree to financially support your relative when he or she arrives.

Once your relative is in the country and has lived here for at least three years, he or she can then take the necessary steps to become a permanent citizen.

Employment Immigration Law

There are different type of visas available based upon the type of work being conducted, and they usually require the employer to be a sponsor. Only 140,000 work visas are available each year, so it's not uncommon for the employer to request the assistance of an immigration attorney.

Humanitarian Immigration Law

If you're a refugee or someone seeking asylum, you may be eligible for protection in the United States. An attorney is definitely required for these types of situations, so get in touch with our attorneys as soon as possible to help move your case forward.
