Attorneys for Immigrant and Non-Immigrant Visas and Deportation Defense in Grand Prairie, TX

People from around the world view the United States as a beacon of freedom and a land of opportunity. Because of this, foreign citizens may plan to come to the U.S. for a variety of reasons. Some may be looking to visit temporarily as tourists or students or to pursue short-term employment, while others may be looking to make a permanent move to the United States in order to live with their families or work for a U.S. employer. Different requirements will apply in different cases, and to ensure that they are in compliance with immigration laws, a person can obtain legal help from an attorney who has experience in these matters. At John W. Lawit, LLC, we help clients in Grand Prairie, Texas address issues related to immigration, working to ensure that they will be able to enter or continue living in the United States.

Assistance With Visa Applications

A visa will provide a person with authorization to travel to the United States. An immigrant visa will give a person the right to live in the U.S. permanently, while a non-immigrant visa will allow them to stay temporarily. Non-immigrant visas may be available for tourists, students, or certain types of temporary workers.

To receive an immigrant visa, a person will usually need to obtain sponsorship from a person who currently lives in the United States. Family-based visas include immediate relative visas for spouses, children, or parents of U.S. citizens; family preference visas for other relatives of citizens or immediate relatives of lawful permanent residents; and fiancé visas that will allow a foreign citizen to come to the United States to get married to a U.S. citizen. Employment-based visas may also be available for employees who receive sponsorship from a U.S. employer, or investor visas may allow foreign entrepreneurs to pursue business opportunities in the United States.

Permanent Residence in the U.S.

Immigrants who wish to live in the United States on a permanent basis may be able to receive a green card that will provide them with lawful permanent resident status. A person can usually apply for a green card at the same time as applying for an immigrant visa. Those who are already living in the United States may apply for adjustment of status. After living in the U.S. for a certain number of years as a lawful permanent resident and meeting other requirements, a person can apply for citizenship.

Removal Defense

Immigrants may face the possibility of deportation for a number of reasons, including entering or remaining in the United States unlawfully or being convicted of certain types of crimes. Our firm can assist with deportation defense, including determining when a person may be able to be released from immigration detention or ask for a bond hearing. We can help determine whether a person may qualify for humanitarian relief, including by applying for asylum, utilizing the DACA program, receiving a U visa or VAWA protections, or applying for temporary protected status. We can also help immigrants apply for waivers of inadmissibility based on hardship to a family member who is a U.S. citizen or green card holder.
