Plano Family Immigration Attorney

Family Immigration Services in Plano, Texas

At John W. Lawit, LLC in Plano, Texas, we focus our practice on providing legal assistance to families or individuals who are seeking to immigrate to the United States through family sponsorship. We have a deep understanding of U.S. immigration laws and regulations, particularly those related to family-based visas and green cards. We play a critical role in helping our clients reunite with their families, obtain lawful permanent resident (LPR) status, and ultimately realize their dreams of building a new life in the United States.

How We Can Help With Family-Based Immigration Issues

The role of a family-based immigration attorney is multifaceted, and our services go far beyond simply filling out forms. Here are some key ways we can help you with your immigration needs:

  • Explaining Eligibility Criteria: Family-based visas include several categories for relatives people living in the U.S., such as immediate relatives (spouses, parents, unmarried children under 21) and family preference categories (adult children, married children, siblings). At John W. Lawit, LLC, we will evaluate your situation and explain which category applies in your specific case.
  • Documentation Assistance: Gathering the necessary documents is an essential part of the visa application process. Our knowledgeable attorneys will guide you through the process of gathering all the necessary documents, such as birth certificates, marriage certificates, passports, financial records showing income stability (Affidavit of Support), police clearance certificates from previous countries of residence, etc. We will ensure that everything is properly organized before submission.
  • Navigating the application process: When applying for family-based visas, multiple forms will need to be filed at various stages, including Form I-130 (Petition for Alien Relative), Form I-485 (Application for Adjustment of Status), or Form DS-260 for consular processing abroad). It can be difficult for those who do not have the necessary legal experience to understand how these forms relate to each other and what supporting documents must accompany them. At John W. Lawit, LLC, we help our clients navigate these complexities by preparing accurate forms and complying with all procedural requirements.
  • Waiver and Exemption Advice: Sometimes, certain circumstances may render an applicant ineligible for immigration benefits due to prior unlawful presence or criminal convictions. At John W. Lawit, LLC, we understand the nuances of the eligibility criteria, and we can advise clients on whether they qualify for waivers of inadmissibility or other exemptions that will allow them to overcome these hurdles.
  • Representation at Interviews: In many cases, people who are seeking family-based visas are required to attend an interview with U.S. Citizenship and Immigration Services (USCIS) as part of their visa application process. We will thoroughly prepare you for the interview by discussing possible questions, preparing documentation, and providing guidance on how to best present your case to the USCIS officer.
  • Advocacy in the event of administrative delays or denials: Unfortunately, there are times when visa applicants may face bureaucratic delays or even denials, despite meeting all of their legal requirements. In a situation such as this, our experienced attorneys can intervene on our client's behalf by filing inquiries, requesting expedited processing (if eligible), appealing unfavorable decisions to higher authorities such as the Administrative Appeals Office (AAO), and ensuring that all possible avenues are explored in pursuit of the approval of an immigrant visa.
  • Staying abreast of changing laws: U.S. immigration policies are subject to constant revision, which can significantly impact an applicant's chances of obtaining a visa or LPR status through family sponsorship. We stay abreast of these developments and ensure that our clients receive accurate information regarding any changes in regulations that may affect their cases.
