Livesay & Myers has a team of immigration attorneys and support staff across offices in Manassas and Fairfax, Virginia, representing clients in Virginia, Washington, D.C. and across the United States. Immigration law is, to the say the least, a complicated area, involving multiple agencies and a large number of federal rules and regulations. Our experienced immigration attorneys can navigate your application for permanent residence, citizenship, or a visa through these bureaucratic waters.
If you are seeking a green card, temporary visa, or citizenship, it is important that you consult with an experienced immigration attorney early in the process. Whether you are immigrating with the help of your employer or through a family member, the process of immigrating to the United States can take years.
Also, very little is automatic in the field of immigration. For example, just having a spouse who is a U.S. citizen does not mean that you have permission to remain in this country. Your spouse and you must file the correct paperwork with the U.S. Citizenship and Immigration Services (USCIS) before you are authorized to remain in the United States. Similarly, temporary visas such as H or L visas do not lead automatically to green cards even after living and working in the United States for many years.
Likewise, if the government institutes removal proceedings against you– i.e., attempts to deport you from the country– then it is critical that you seek legal counsel from an experienced immigration attorney immediately. Our immigration lawyers can help you identify and apply for any available forms of relief, e.g., Asylum, Withholding of Removal, Cancellation of Removal, Temporary Protected Status, or Voluntary Departure.
