Family Unification with the Assistance of Highly Skilled Immigration Lawyers
Family unification is a cornerstone of United States immigration law, providing benefits for both new family beginnings through marriage and for re-unification of families for whom some members have been residing in the United States while other members have remained abroad. Timing considerations can be especially sensitive for these cases. Government processing time for these cases can be especially frustrating for those anxious to begin or renew lives together. At Rabinowitz & Rabinowitz, P.C. we are sensitive to these concerns and do everything that we can to move the process along as swiftly as possible.
Government web sites and other similar sources provide general information about the basic requirements for family-based immigration, but that information is only part of the picture, whether we are talking about lawful permanent resident status based upon marriage, the parent-child relationship, adoption, or a sibling relationship.
United States immigration law and regulations are highly complex, with multiple sections of law and regulations affecting a single case. 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 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. Knowing what to expect and moving cases efficiently through these systems can help avoid delay and reduce the heartfelt frustration of family separation.
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 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.
