If you have the dream of entering the United States to work, live, or spend time with family, you have many options available. However, obtaining a visa is not easy, and it is even more challenging to gain citizenship. The immigration system in the United States is extremely complex and ever-changing. Berrien County immigration attorneys can help you navigate immigration law in the United States, and give you the best chance of a successful outcome.
The Immigration and Nationality Act allows foreigners to enter the United States on a temporary or permanent basis. It is important to know that there are many different types of visas you can obtain to live and work in the United States. Employers are often involved in the process of helping foreign nationals secure visas so they can legally work in the country. Employers, like those wishing to obtain a visa for their workers, must comply with the law, including verifying your identity and the fact that you are legally allowed to live in the United States.
Although employment-based immigration is often the first type people think of when considering moving to the United States, family-based immigration is a possibility, as well. It is also one of the most common forms of immigration into the country. If you have obtained a green card, or secured citizenship status, you can sponsor family members still living abroad to come and live in the United States.
While both immigration statuses will allow you to sponsor a family member, you will have more options if you have secured citizenship. As a citizen, you can sponsor a spouse, child, parent, sibling, or fiancé that is living abroad. Green card holders are limited to sponsoring a spouse and children only.
Berrien County immigration attorneys can help anyone wishing to enter the country find the right solution for them. However, they can also help if you feel as though you are in fear of deportation. The federal government can deport individuals, even those with permanent resident status, for many reasons. A few reasons people face deportation is because they committed a crime, included fraudulent statements on their immigration application, and more.
Many people face deportation even when they did nothing wrong, unfortunately. Immigration and Customs Enforcement (ICE) agents often become overzealous in their pursuit of placing immigrants into removal proceedings. These officials may not consider that they mistook someone’s identity, or that they made an innocent error on their immigration application. In these cases, the help of a Berrien County immigration attorney is of crucial importance in protecting your rights.

One of my relatives just received her Green Card and the credit goes to Kevin Raica and his Paralegal, Aga Bogdanowicz. The final “Adjust Status Petition” including the supporting documentation was 128 pages long! There is no way we could have compiled this level of detail much less have it be error free on our own. The whole process took around 8 months which is to be expected; however, the Petition package was so complete that no interview was required.
