Stroudsburg Immigration Law
Immigration to the United States is the international movement of foreigners, or citizens of other countries, who desire to reside permanently in the country. Immigration has occurred throughout much of U.S. history and is responsible for population growth and cultural change. The United States has the largest immigrant population of any other country, with 47 million immigrants.
The United States also sees a large number of people who desire to work and attend school in various parts of the country. Because immigration status often intersects with other legal matters, such as family law, business law, tax law, and even criminal law, business, immigration lawyers need to be highly knowledgeable in various legalities.
Many countries control immigration by setting up customs at entry point locations such as airports and roads near the border. At the customs department, agents will inspect travel documents, such as tickets, passports, or international certificates of vaccination.
Immigration Legal Issues
U.S. immigration laws are complex. You may want to adjust your immigration status or bring family members over to the United States. You could be facing criminal charges or immigration violations that could cause you to be deported back to your home country. For these issues, you need legal help from an experienced Stroudsburg immigration law attorney.
Some other common immigration matters that lawyers can help with include the following:
Citizenship. Many people from other countries desire to become American citizens. An experienced immigration lawyer can help immigrants become naturalized citizens, even when there are barriers.
Immigration status. A lawyer can help you when you want to apply for a green card or adjust your status from nonimmigrant to immigrant. A lawyer can also help with expired visas, extensions, and other compliance issues.
Family immigration. Get help with family immigration, such as spouse or fiancée visas, visas for children, and visas for extended family. These visas can allow a person to visit the United States or become a resident here.
Waivers and asylum. Lawyers can help those from other countries obtain immigration waivers as well as refugee or asylum entry visas so they can come to the United States temporarily or stay here permanently.
Criminal defense. U.S immigration law can be strict. It is not uncommon for visa and green card holders to face deportation for misdemeanor crimes. An immigration lawyer can sometimes help defend immigrants against these crimes and fight to allow them to stay in the United States.
