Individuals Needing Immigration Lawyers
The attorneys at Rabinowitz & Rabinowitz, P.C. also have a wealth of experience in representing individuals in matters involving United States immigration and nationality law. Individuals may be seeking a temporary work authorized status, the ability to remain in the United States permanently based upon employment, lawful permanent resident status resulting from a petition filed by a family member, an application for naturalization or proceedings to prove already existing status as a citizen of the United States.
Government web sites and other similar sources provide general information about the basic requirements for particular types of temporary and permanent visa statuses and applications for citizenship, but that information is only part of the picture.
United States immigration law and regulations are highly complex. In addition, in some cases, regional and/or national policy positions, case law, and other forms of legal authority also affect the decision-making process underlying the preparation and strategic support of an application. Other cases involve the input of and filings with State and Federal agencies beyond just the United States Citizenship and Immigration Service, with deadlines that are critical to the success of the case. The various local, regional and international offices of the United States Government which handle matters relating to visas and citizenship frequently have their own unique filing requirements, processing time lines, inquiry procedures, and the like.
Retaining the services of an experienced immigration attorney adds real value beyond that provided by the basic information that is available to persons interested in lawful status or citizenship in the United States. An experienced immigration attorney is, for example, able to assess eligibility for various statuses in light of all of the factors that could affect the likelihood of success, assist the individual with strategic immigration planning taking into consideration short and long term immigration goals, and bring greater predictability to the process through the professional preparation and filing of fully documented applications. The added value of these and other services can save an individual time because, for example, a qualifying application with proper supporting documentation is more likely to be approved without the delay that would be occasioned by a government request for additional evidence. An experienced immigration attorney can also provide applicants with information about the unique requirements of various United States Government offices with processing authority over applications, thereby helping reduce the frustration that applicants might otherwise experience.
