Can An Illegal Alien Apply For United States Residency Or Visa?


Unfortunately, our immigration system, in some aspects, is very unforgiving. If an individual happens to fall out of status, for example, an individual comes to the United States on a visitor’s visa, overstays the visa and then wants to obtain a visa legally, they will be barred and not be allowed to get that visa. There are very few exceptions for getting back into status once you fall out of it. Some of the only ways that you can become legal again is by marrying a US citizen or going through the immigration court system and filing for a relief in front of a judge, such as asylum or cancellation of removal.

WHO IS SUBJECT TO DEPORTATION IN THE UNITED STATES?

Anyone who is not in the country in status could potentially find themselves in removal proceedings and either being asked to leave the country or forcefully removed from the country. Those chances are greatly increased if you are in the country without status and if you have ever been convicted of a crime. If you have ever been found to have committed visa fraud or if you have any previous issues with Immigration officials, your odds are going to be greatly increased that you would either be requested to appear for removal proceedings or that the Immigration Customs Enforcement (ICE) would actually detain you. Permanent Residents can also face deportation if they are found guilty of having committed a crime involving moral turpitude or if USCIS made an error in issuing their residency in the first place.

HOW SUCCESSFUL ARE PEOPLE IN NAVIGATING THROUGH THE IMMIGRATION PROCESS ON THEIR OWN?

People often ask, “Do I need an attorney to file?” The answer to that is for every one person that files it successfully, there is going to be another person that, no matter how simple and straightforward it may appear, is going to have issues. I have people come into my office all the time that attempted to file on their own. At best, the case gets denied, and it’s only a financial loss. At worst, they can actually find themselves in a position where perhaps they are accused of fraud or have other serious allegations against them. So, while working with an attorney has a cost, there is also, in my opinion a far greater cost of not working with one and having negative results.

WHAT SETS YOU AND YOUR FIRM APART IN HANDLING IMMIGRATION ISSUES FOR YOUR CLIENTS?

I have a passion for what I do. I have been doing this for over a decade. I have done thousands of cases, and I love what I do. I am going to fight for each of my clients and never give up. People come to me all the time with cases that appear hopeless, and my goal is to leave each and every one of my clients with a sense of hope. I cannot guarantee a successful outcome, but I can guarantee that I will do everything I can to garner a positive resolution for my clients.
