We prepare and file visa petitions and permanent residency applications for clients in South Carolina and all over the world. From the initial consultation in which we determine the best path to residency for your family member to final issuance of the green card, we are here to assist and advise you. We assist with both adjustment of status and consular processing cases.
CRIME VICTIM LEGAL SERVICES
The firm provides a holistic representation of crime victims in legal proceedings, from assisting with communication with law enforcement agencies to preparing and filing applications for immigration benefits. We approach these cases with sensitivity to the often delicate situations that victims of trauma can experience, while also providing competent legal services to help them gain a measure of stability in their lives.
Subject to attorney availability, we may be able to assist persons who have been detained by U.S. Immigration & Customs Enforcement (ICE), are fighting removal proceedings, or have been ordered removed from the United States. We represent clients in all stages of removal work, including seeking an immigration bond, applying for relief from removal before the U.S. immigration courts, and filing applications for stays of removal with ICE.
If you are in removal proceedings or an undocumented loved one has been detained, it is important that you contact a reputable immigration attorney AS SOON AS POSSIBLE.
WAIVERS OF INADMISSIBILITY
In some cases, an applicant may not be eligible for a visa or residency due to past immigration violations or criminal history, but may qualify for a waiver. We enjoy working on challenging waiver applications to help families stay together in the United States.
We assist with reviewing cases for eligibility, preparing and filing citizenship applications, and preparing our clients for the citizenship interview. Some of our favorite moments are attending citizenship oath ceremonies for clients whose immigration journey we have shared for many years!
ADVICE ON LAW AND POLICY CHANGES
Immigration law and policy is influenced by political change, and we consider it our responsibility to pay constant attention to the news and become knowledgeable about any updates that may impact our clients. In addition to providing general advice, we provide case assistance for persons who may be eligible for military parole in place (PIP), have been recipients of Deferred Action for Childhood Arrivals (DACA) and Temporary Protected Status (TPS), or who may qualify for other special government programs.
