Dallas County Immigration Lawyers for Visas, Green Cards, Removal Defense, and Appeals

People from all over the world may be looking to come to the United States so that they can live near family members and pursue educational opportunities and employment. However, the immigration process can be complicated, and there are a wide variety of legal requirements that will need to be met to ensure that a person can legally enter the U.S., obtain authorization to work, receive permanent resident status, and eventually become a citizen. During this process, legal help from an experienced attorney can be crucial. By working with a lawyer, immigrants and their family members or employers can make sure they are following the correct procedures and providing the right information to immigration officials.

At the law office of John W. Lawit, LLC, we have been working in the field of immigration law for over 40 years. We understand the legal issues that can affect immigrants, and we have helped tens of thousands of clients address a wide range of legal concerns. Whether you are looking to apply for an immigration visa, sponsor a family member for immigration, defend against deportation, obtain citizenship, or pursue employment in the United States, we can provide you with dedicated legal representation and address any issues that may arise during your case.

Legal Representation in Multiple Types of Immigration Cases

We assist with a wide variety of concerns related to immigration, including:

  • Family-based immigration - People in the United States may be able to sponsor foreign family members for immigration. We work with families to apply for immediate relative visas, fiancé visas, and other types of visas, and we can also help apply for provisional waivers.
  • Employment-based immigration - Employers may sponsor foreign employees for visas, including temporary or seasonal visas or immigrant visas that allow a person to become a lawful permanent resident of the United States.
  • Investor immigration - People who plan to invest in commercial enterprises in the United States that create new jobs may apply for immigrant visas that will allow them to become permanent residents.
  • Student visas - Students who plan to attend college or pursue other educational opportunities in the United States will need to apply for nonimmigrant visas.
  • Green cards - People who have received immigrant visas may be able to apply for permanent residence in the United States. In some cases, an adjustment of status may be available for those who are already present in the U.S.
  • Citizenship and naturalization - After living in the U.S. for a certain period of time, lawful permanent residents can apply to become citizens.
  • DACA - The Deferred Action for Childhood Arrivals program may provide some people with protection against deportation if they came to the United States as children.
  • Waivers of inadmissibility - When applying for a visa, immigration officials may determine that a person is inadmissible to the United States. We can help determine whether a person may qualify for a waiver that will allow them to enter or remain in the U.S.
  • Bond hearings - If a person is detained by immigration officials, they may be able to receive a bond that will allow them to be released from custody. We can provide representation during bond hearings and demonstrate that a person is not a danger to the community or a flight risk.
  • Humanitarian relief - Immigrants may be admitted to the United States or protected from deportation to ensure that they will be safe from harm. We can assist with cases involving asylum, temporary protected status, U visas, or VAWA petitions.
  • Removal defense - Immigrants who are involved in deportation proceedings may have a number of options. We can provide representation for those who are in immigration detention, including filing habeas corpus petitions.
  • Appeals - When immigration officials or judges in immigration courts make unfavorable decisions, we can help pursue an appeal in federal court.
