IL immigration lawyerThe United States immigration process can be a complicated and intimidating endeavor. There are many forms and documents that an applicant must fill out to legally enter the country. Part of the Department of Homeland Security (DHS), the U.S. Citizenship and Immigration Services (USCIS) is the federal agency that oversees lawful entry to America. The USCIS website provides information on different visas that permit immigrants to come to the United States to live and work. However, if a person is hoping to start a new life or join other family members here, or if he or she is facing removal, it is essential that he or she seeks the help of an experienced immigration attorney who can help navigate the complex legal proceedings.

Understanding the Legal Aspect of Immigrating to the United States

Coming to the United States can be life-changing for an immigrant. In some cases, he or she may be fleeing religious persecution or to obtain a better occupation. Regardless of the reasons for immigrating, legal counsel can expedite the process, strengthen a case, and ensure an immigrant’s rights are protected. In removal proceedings, the government always has an attorney present, so the person facing deportation is entitled to legal representation, too.

Unintentionally making a mistake by filing the wrong document can cost undocumented immigrants if they have to resubmit it and pay an application fee for a second time. Certain filings have a timeline in which they must be completed; otherwise, immigrants risk losing that relief if it is not done on time and correctly.

The benefits of hiring an immigration attorney can be far-reaching, often making the difference between a successful outcome or being denied entrance to or remaining in the United States. A few of the advantages of that an immigration attorney can provide include:

  • Well-versed in federal immigration law and any changes to legislation
  • Understands criteria and timelines for filing applications
  • Knows how to challenge evidence presented against the immigrant
  • Has access to subject matter experts and witnesses
  • Negotiates plea bargains and settlements for the immigrant
