VAWA - Abuse Victim
Violence Against Women Act (VAWA) is a self-petition that women and men alike can file if they have been the victim of psychological and/or physical abuse and control and if their abuser is their current or former spouse, or their 21 year or older child, or their parent who is a resident or a US citizen. Although helpful, a police report is not required in VAWA cases.
If you are an applicant for a greencard and have been found inadmissible to the United States, you require a waiver to excuse the inadmissibility ground. Usually, this happens in cases where there is a criminal conviction or prior immigration fraud or misrepresentation. We prepare and file immigration waivers to allow you to continue with your greencard process.
DACA, TPS, WORK PERMITS, PAROLE & MORE
We can apply for your initial or renewal of DACA, TPS or work permit, as well as apply for the parole for your family and friends.
USCIS Request for Evidence Letters & Interviews
If you have filed your applications already, but need assistance with preparing for the interview, we are the attorneys for you. We thoroughly prepare you for and attend the greencard and citizenship interviews with you!
If you have filed your applications and received a letter requesting more evidence, contact us. Failure to respond or to include all evidence required may result in a denial of your application.
This area of law is the intersection of criminal law and immigration law. Unless you are a United States citizen, every arrest or criminal conviction carries a consequence on your immigration status. Never plead guilty to any crime without speaking to an immigration attorney to be best advised on the consequences of your plea or conviction on your immigration status. Often times, people without status or even with legal permanent residency are placed in removal proceedings before the immigration court. Contact us for a full review of your immigration options before pleading guilty to any crime.
