Overview of the United States immigration laws
Immigrating to the United States can be a complicated process. Lawful permanent resident status (Green Card holder) can be reached via either the family-sponsored categories or the employment-based categories.
The United states immigration laws make a distinction between immigrant and non-immigrant visas. Immigrant visas are those that can be used to obtain lawful permanent residence in the United States. Non-immigrant visas, on the other hand, are to be used by those who do not intend on making the United States their permanent home. However, an individual in the United States with a valid non-immigrant visa can certainly still adjust their status to that of a lawful permanent resident provided they can obtain an immigrant visa via the above-mentioned categories (family-sponsored or employment-based).

Why should you speak with an immigration lawyer?
Often, individuals will get the help of an “immigration preparer” due to the apparent lower initial cost. However, utilizing the services of immigration preparers can have devastating consequences. These preparers are not attorneys and cannot practice law. Should something go wrong in the adjudication of your immigration matter, these preparers cannot represent you before the Executive Office for Immigration Review (EOIR) or the Board of Immigration and Appeals (BIA). Moreover, preparers are not knowledgeable with the minutiae of the United States immigration laws. As a result, they cannot completely assess your specific immigration conditions and give you the advice you require. The use of preparers frequently results in further hardship since the incorrect immigration relief was initially sought or was not brought forth via the appropriate channels.
Speaking with an attorney, on the other hand, can provide additional insight into potential immigration relief or benefits that one would otherwise not be aware of. The US immigration laws are complex and the appropriate course of action requires careful assessment of each case. The attorneys at Randhawa Hundal LLP are well-versed in the US immigration laws and can help find the relief or benefit which is most appropriate for your situation.
