The United States has long been a haven for people from other countries seeking a better way of life. Whether you wish to work here, become a permanent resident, fight deportation or help family members join you in America, the attorneys with Law Offices of Hale Hawbecker have the experience and dedication to help you realize your goal. We understand that the laws governing immigration can be confusing and frustrating to those who seek to come to our shores or stay here legally. We are committed to making the path to employment, residence, citizenship or travel a less circuitous route for those we represent.
The U.S. immigration system comprises a complex web of intricate laws and bureaucratic red tape. Our attorneys are intimately familiar with the U.S. Citizenship and Immigration Services (USCIS), the U.S. government agency that administers the country’s immigration and naturalization system, and we draw on that knowledge to represent clients in a full range of immigration matters, which may include:
In each of these matters, we can help with applications, petitions, forms, and hearings to guide our clients through every step of the process.
Applying for a work, travel or residency visa can be a daunting task. The U.S. government places strict requirements on qualifications for individual visas and outlines inflexible procedures for filing. Mistakes on your application can lead to crucial delays and potential denials. We will analyze your short- and long-term goals to set up a long-range plan. By thoroughly understanding your situation, we can gather evidence that supports each element of your eligibility. Our experience allows us to anticipate complications in the application process and troubleshoot before problems occur.
We also assist those who seek safety in the United States through refugee or asylum status. To be considered a refugee, a foreign national living outside their native country must be able to prove that returning there poses a risk of persecution. People seeking asylum in the United States must already reside here and prove that deportation or removal to their home country presents the same threat that a refugee faces.
Immigration policy is under constant debate, and the laws are frequently modified. To complicate matters, the USCIS regularly updates its procedures, forms and guidelines. We stay current on the shifts in immigration law and updated on potential changes in the pipeline. To successfully advise you, we consider not only the laws as they exist but the possibility of beneficial — as well as harmful — reforms. We are dedicated to pursuing your case and achieving your goals in even the most complicated situations.
