The United States is viewed as the Land of Opportunity. When we talk about the US we still speak of the American Dream. We still believe that the US system is based on keeping families together. Sadly, the reality of US Immigration Policy is that these ideals need to be dug out of an otherwise confusing and often patched together system.
At Immigration Attorneys, LLP, we understand that people want to come to the United States because no matter how difficult things get in the US, they are often much more difficult elsewhere. We understand that immigration definitions of family do not match the way people think about family. Therefore, from the first time we speak with you, we work with you to find ways to bring the people that you view as family to join you in the US. For those of you who are already here, and dealing with a system focused on enforcement, we work with you to find a path, and work to keep your family together.
We focus on assisting you in bringing your family together in the United States or to re-unify them following a forced separation. In matters where permanent residents or US citizens petition for relatives still abroad, we strive to prioritize the needs of our clients. We remain ever mindful of the emotional challenges presented through the immigration petition process. In matters where someone has already been targeted for deportation, we work with you to find solutions. Sometimes there are even solutions only available to those in front of an immigration judge.
We pour over the new announcements to find new and different approaches. In 2011 it was a Memo from Director John Morton that spawned a whole new approach for those without any apparent form of relief (Prosecutorial Discretion). Just weeks ago the Obama Administration announced a new approach for youths brought to the US under the age of 16 (Deferred Action for DREAMers). We work with you to find an approach to help your family get together and stay together.
Whether dealing with the immigration service in the US (USCIS), the consulates abroad (DOS), the enforcement division (ICE), or those you meet at a border (CBP), our focus remains the same. What can we do for you and your family?
