Types of Immigration Matters We Handle
After more than half a century of focused immigration practice, we have cultivated the knowledge and skills needed to assist individuals and organizations with virtually any immigration-related process.
Turn to our skilled professionals for assistance with any of the following, and more:
- Humanitarian visas and programs. Asylum, T visas, and U visas are just a few examples of the forms of relief you may be able to obtain if you have suffered from crime, violence, persecution, and more.
- Deferred Action for Childhood Arrivals. If you were brought unlawfully to the United States as a child, you may qualify for DACA, which grants two years of renewable status and allows you to obtain work authorization.
- Temporary visas. Whether you are visiting the U.S. for business, pleasure, employment, study, medical care, or any other temporary activity, you may qualify for one of many different nonimmigrant visas. Some of these may allow you to eventually obtain a green card.
- Adjustment of status. If you are in the U.S. lawfully (via asylum, nonimmigrant visa, etc.), you may be able to obtain a green card without leaving the country. This is called adjustment of status, and it results in lawful permanent residence.
- Employment- or investment-based immigration. If you have a bona fide job offer from a qualifying U.S. employer, or you invest a certain amount of capital in a qualifying U.S. commercial enterprise, you may qualify for a green card.
- Family-based immigration. Is one of your close relatives a U.S. citizen or lawful permanent resident? They may be able to sponsor you for a green card.
- Immigration through colleges or universities. Professors, researchers, and other faculty may qualify for lawful permanent residence (a green card) through their employment with a qualifying U.S. college or university.
- Motions and appeals. An application denial is not necessarily the end of the road. Some decisions from immigration agencies can be appealed, or you may be able to file a motion to reconsider or reopen the case.
- Deportation and removal proceedings. A person facing deportation may have one or more valid defenses against removal. These defenses may include adjustment of status, relief through asylum or another humanitarian program, waivers, and more.
Whether you know exactly what path to take through the immigration system, or you simply have a general long-term goal but aren’t sure how to achieve it, our Dublin immigration lawyers can provide the guidance and advocacy you need.
