Immigration Lawyers In New Jersey
In these uncertain times, consulting with an experienced immigration attorney is incredibly important when your status is questionable or at risk. If any of the following circumstances apply to you, you should immediately consult with an immigration attorney:
- You entered the U.S. without documentation
- You exceeded your authorized stay
- You are a non-citizen, whether documented or not, and you have been charged with a criminal or serious traffic offense
- You have legal status and wish for a family member or members to join you in the U.S.
- You have been placed in a removal (deportation) proceeding in Immigration Court
PRESENT WITHOUT DOCUMENTATION/OVERSTAY
If you entered the U.S. without documentation, or you entered on a non-immigrant visa and failed to leave by the deadline provided upon entry, your present status is undocumented and you risk removal, even if you do not commit any crime or offense. However, there may be options that would allow you to stay or legally re-enter the country. An experienced immigration attorney is the best person with whom to discuss these options.
CRIMINAL & TRAFFIC OFFENSES
If you are undocumented, and even if you are a lawful permanent resident (green card holder), a criminal or serious traffic offense may result in your removal from the U.S. For this reason, it is imperative that you consult with an immigration attorney before you plead guilty to any offense or attempt to try such a case. People often make the mistake of thinking they have nothing to lose if they already have a green card. This is not always true. Know you rights before you proceed.
If you have legal status in the U.S. as a permanent resident or a citizen, you may be able to petition for a family member from abroad to join you here, such as a fiancé, spouse, child, or parent. This process is often confusing, and an immigration attorney can help you navigate through the complex laws and regulations that apply.
If you have been arrested by Immigration and Customs Enforcement (ICE), you likely received a Notice to Appear in Immigration Court with the government seeking to deport you. Whatever your status, there may be options available to allow you to legally stay in the U.S. An immigration attorney can explore these options with you and assist you through the court process.
