Family Litigation

Family Litigation

Want to sponsor a loved one for a green card but not sure where to start?
Is ICE trying to deport you or a loved one?
Finally ready to become a citizen but a mistake in your past is coming back to haunt you?

Family immigration and removal defense issues are highly complex and options available can depend on many factors. Your individual criminal and immigration histories, processing times, family history, your geographic location and your individual priorities and more can play a major part in whether you or a loved one can stay in the US or are stuck abroad. It is vital to consult with a competent immigration lawyer who regularly handles your type of situation to determine the best tailored solution for you.
