Comprehensive Immigration Services Available in Arlington

Immigration law is among the most complex legal areas to navigate. Simply looking at the website for U.S. Citizenship and Immigration Services (USCIS) can leave non-lawyers wondering what to do next. 

Those who attempt to proceed through the system on their own are often met with denials and delays. Our smart and focused immigration team cuts through the noise and develops strong strategies in an effort to achieve our clients’ goals of living and working in this country.

Our immigration services include the following:

  • Adjustment of Status
  • Work Visas
  • Family-Sponsored Immigration
  • Green Cards & Naturalization/Citizenship
  • Waivers
  • Asylum
  • Removal Defense

Advocating for Immigrants Facing Deportation

Deportation back to their home country is often a scary prospect for an immigrant. In many cases, they left the country because of fear for their life or an inability to financially provide for themselves and their families. Norred Law provides aggressive advocacy for those facing deportation.

The removal process can begin for any of the following reasons:

  • Violating U.S. immigration law
  • Committing a crime (even some misdemeanors are deportable offenses)
  • Violating the terms of their visa
  • Failing to provide a change of address to USCIS within 10 days

Legal Counsel for Employers Needing Temporary Workers

Not everyone entering the U.S. wants to be here permanently. They often work seasonally and return home. Foreign companies with a presence in this country may also need to have employees temporarily come to the U.S. to help with certain projects or initiatives. 

U.S. employers petition for employment-based visas based on the worker and the type of worker needed: E visas, H visas, L visas, and P visas. In many cases, the spouse and unmarried children under age 21 can petition to accompany the worker to this country.

Norred Law provides strategic counsel to employers needing to bring foreign workers temporarily into the U.S. to provide a valuable service that cannot be met by the current American workforce.

Family-Based Immigration Services

We appreciate the value of strong family units in Arlington. Family-based immigration services are a central part of our immigration practice. U.S. citizens can petition to bring their non-citizen family members to the U.S. Family sponsorships are usually for spouses, minor children, siblings, or parents. Lawful permanent residents (Green Card holders) can file a petition for their spouse or unmarried children.

Asylum and Refugee Seekers

Every day, foreign-born people arrive at our borders and ask for asylum. They are fleeing persecution for their race, religion, nationality, social group membership, or political opinion. Asylum seekers must present themselves at the border. Anyone wanting to legally remain in the U.S. as an asylee should contact Norred Law right away. Those will a pending asylum case can seek the right to work in the U.S. after 180 days.

Unlike those wanting asylum, anyone wanting to stay in the U.S. as a refugee start the process outside the country. Potential refugees first register with the United Nations High Commissioner for Refugees (UNHCR) in the country to which they have fled. 

Having an attorney from Norred Law to provide legal guidance from within the U.S. is critical to illustrate a compelling narrative for refugee status. Those admitted as refugees are eligible for U.S. government-funded resettlement assistance. They are also allowed to work immediately using their Arrival-Departure Record until they receive their Employment Authorization Document. 

Green Cards and Citizenship

Anyone wanting to become a lawful permanent resident should speak with our Arlington immigration attorneys. 

USCIS allows for three avenues for gaining a Green Card:

  • Those currently on employment-based visas (EB-1, EB-2, and EB-3 are prioritized in that order)
  • Those who are immediate relatives of a U.S. citizen (spouse, unmarried child under 21, or parent)
  • Other family members of U.S. citizens or lawful permanent residents (unmarried children older than 21, spouses and children of green card holders, unmarried children of green card holders older than 21, married children of U.S. citizens, and siblings of U.S. citizens)

Being a lawful permanent resident gives the individual the right to live and work in the U.S. Green cards are typically valid for 10 years and can be renewed. A green card enables the holder to travel freely within the U.S. They can also travel abroad and re-enter the U.S. as long as they return within 12 months of departure. 

Citizenship through naturalization offers additional benefits:

  • No green card renewal requirement
  • Less risk of deportation
  • Ability to petition for more family members to come to the U.S.
  • Right to vote and run for public office
  • Ability to obtain a U.S. passport 

Anyone who has been a lawful permanent resident for at least 5 years (3 years if married to a U.S. citizen) and meets other eligibility criteria can apply for citizenship.
