Millions of people around the world have the dream of immigrating to the United States. It does not take long for them to find out that obtaining citizenship, a green card, or a visa is not easy. Those wishing to enter the country must navigate a complex system and still too many people learn that the system is broken. Others are already in the country but face deportation, which is an extremely frightening prospect. A Grand Rapids immigration lawyer will not only help you through the system, but will also give you the best chance of success with your case with the understanding and compassion you deserve.
Immigrants can apply for many different types of waivers, with the most common being the provisional waiver of unlawful presence. If you are in the country illegally, or have relatives such as a spouse or child who is an American citizen, you can apply for this type of waiver. If you do have a relative who qualifies, you can apply for a green card and the waiting period is waived. If you can prove that you are under extreme hardship, you can also apply for a provisional waiver. Although this is only the most common type of waiver available, a Grand Rapids immigration lawyer can outline the other types of waivers that may apply to your situation.
Foreign nationals often wish to enter the country for work purposes. If you have a job waiting for you in the United States, or you wish to create employment opportunities, you can apply for a number of different visas. You will typically need to prove that you have certain skills or that you are eligible under the qualifications of a specific visa. In some cases, you may also have to show that there is currently a lack of qualified Americans who can fill the position you are seeking.
If you have obtained a visa and it has expired, or is about to, you may still be able to remain in the country by exploring a number of different options. If you have a family member who is a citizen or a lawful permanent resident, you can fill out an I-130 form to obtain a green card. You can also ask your employers to sponsor your immigration application.
Becoming an American citizen is a dream for so many, but the road to get there is a long and complicated one. You must submit to tests, attend an interview, provide fingerprints, and take an oath. Although the process is exciting, it is also complex and one mistake could create an unnecessary delay. A Grand Rapids immigration lawyer can help you through it and give you the best chance of success.

Great work from Brittni Rivera, extremely professional. I highly recommend to go with them especially for U visa cases.
Both Jake, who has since relocated, and Lauren (current) are a saving grace to those who they’ve helped. Lauren, who I am working with currently, cannot be more attentive, understanding, and humble in the work and reassurance she gives you. She never makes you feel like you are any less due to your circumstance, she speaks to you more humanely and with compassion more than even a friend or family may. If you’re in the market for an attorney that cares, does her best to accommodate your circumstance and limitations while working your case, I can not recommend enough Lauren.…
Very intelligent, very much helpful, and always answer any question in your mind. Always immediate replies to my questions. Very much trustful. Thank u very much.
Simply put, I shouldn't be here. I had a really complex immigration case and all the firms that we consulted with told us that I virtually had no chance of staying here in the United States for my son. All except Kriezelman Burton.
