How An Immigration Attorney Can Help

While all aspects of immigration can technically be handled without a lawyer, immigration matters can often be better approached with knowledgeable legal advice on your side. Without guidance, critical errors that could result in serious delays or worse, deportation, can occur.

Hiring immigration attorneys with experience from our staff at Skaug Law as your immigration consultants can greatly improve your case.

Types Of Immigration Matters

There are many types of immigration matters we can help you with at Skaug Law:

  • Immigrant Visa
    Immigrant visas are visas that are issued to approved foreign nationals who plan to live permanently in the United States. You need this type of visa if you plan to move to America long-term without being a citizen.
  • Non-Immigrant Visa
    Non-immigrant visas are work, study, and travel visas that are granted to those who want to visit the United States or come to the United States for a specific amount of time for a specific purpose.
    You will need this type of visa when you plan to be in the United States for a temporary stay for things like medical procedures, tourism, study, or business.
  • Adjustment Of Status
    Adjustment of Status is the process of applying for a Green Card while you are already in the United States. The standard Green Card process is done from abroad, but the adjustment of status process exists so those who have been legally in the United States can try to change over to a Green Card.
  • Green Card
    The Green Card, also known as a Permanent Resident Card, is an official document granted by the United States to those who have been given permission to live in the United States permanently.
    Green Cards give the holder the right to legally live and work in America, and they may also be able to apply for citizenship after three to five years.
  • Naturalization
    Naturalization is the process by which legal, permanent residents in the United States can apply to become U.S. citizens. This process opens up to Green Card holders after a few years and is the only way for immigrants to become legal citizens.
  • Family-Based Immigration
    Family-based immigration is the system that allows immediate or close relatives of U.S. citizens or Green Card holders to apply for a visa to come live permanently in the United States. Family-based immigration can typically be used for spouses, parents, children, and siblings depending on the situation.
  • Employment-Based Immigration
    A certain number of employment-based immigration visas are available in the U.S. each year; around 140,000 visas are divided into different categories and then given out to qualified individuals.
  • VAWA And U-visas
    VAWA, a visa specifically for domestic violence survivors of a U.S. citizen or lawful resident, and U-visas, visas specifically for those who have helped in criminal cases or persecution against certain crimes, are specialty visas for immigration to the U.S.

Immigration is complicated, confusing, and something that takes years of research to get a good grasp on. Even when you have experience with the system, it is constantly evolving and changing as laws are updated and court cases are decided.
