Obtaining high-quality legal support is crucial for people and families seeking to start a new life in the United States. At the National Immigration Law Center in Fort Lauderdale, Florida, our firm delivers exceptional counsel to clients from around the world. Regardless of where you want to reside in America, we can help you understand the rules that govern visas, deportation, green cards and citizenship. Our firm has the knowledge and experience to be a staunch advocate for you, and we offer the personalized attention you deserve.
Noncitizens who want to enter the United States must secure a visa from the State Department’s Bureau of Consular Affairs. These authorizations can be granted on a temporary basis for students, tourists or seasonal workers. Other visas can start the immigration process, such as:
For these issues and all other immigration-related matters, we offer a free first consultation to help you understand how to obtain the result you seek.
Often referred to by the green card that is issued to recipients, lawful permanent resident status allows individuals to live and work in the United States. Relatives of people living here legally, temporary visa holders looking to adjust their status, and others can petition the U.S. Citizenship and Immigration Services (USCIS) for a green card. We ensure that all documents are drafted and submitted correctly and will handle any unexpected concerns that arise.
An arrest, a missed deadline, or a documentation problem can end your opportunity to build a life in the United States, even if you have been here for years. If you have received a Notice of Hearing indicating that you are being targeted for removal, you need a qualified deportation defense attorney immediately. No matter how difficult your case seems, we work diligently and look for creative ways to secure an adjustment in status or a cancellation of the removal proceeding.
Since its founding, the United States has offered safe haven to people facing oppression and violence in their home countries. If you or someone you know is being persecuted or threatened, a solution might be available through asylum (for people in the United States) or refugee status (for someone outside the country). Our firm will initiate a thorough review of the circumstances to build the strongest possible argument for either protected status on humanitarian grounds.
Attaining U.S. citizenship is a life-changing event. Not surprisingly, the naturalization process is long and places many demands on applicants. If you have been a lawful permanent resident in this country for at least five years (three years if you are married to a U.S. citizen) or meet one of the other qualifications (such as service in the U.S. armed forces), we will explain each step you must go through, starting with the N-400 Petition for Naturalization, and guide you through the background checks, interview and civics test.
