Immigration Law

Immigration law is complex and constantly changing. It is often said that immigration law is almost as complex as tax law.

Facing an immigration issue can be a very stressful and uncertain situation, and knowing where to turn is not always immediately clear. At McGann, Del Pino and Hughes we work with our clients to help them understand the laws, manage the process and help map out a plan to meet individual and family goals.

Immigration lawyers interpret the law, help you analyze your rights and possible outcomes, and guide you through every step of the complicated immigration process. We will help you prepare important paperwork and help you collect documents (such as birth certificates and marriage certificates). We make sure the information you present is organized and accurate.

Without the counsel of an experienced immigration attorney,  mistakes can be made which can be very costly. Given that even a small mistake on an immigration application can lead to delays, an immigration lawyer plays a significant role in helping you complete necessary steps.

Most importantly, an experienced attorney knows what to expect, and can predict what issues to prepare for to make sure applications are not held up on legal technicalities.

Immigration lawyers do much more than simply helping people become citizens of new countries.  We can defend your case and prevent you from being deported. A lawyer may provide legal advice about a person’s ability to obtain a work visa in another country for a specified period of time. If a student is studying abroad, then he or she may want to consult with an immigration attorney for the appropriate visa.

An immigration attorney can also help you obtain citizenship through naturalization.  The process of applying for citizenship can be very complicated and time-consuming. You will need to receive various appointment letters and pass an English and Civics test in order to obtain citizenship through naturalization.

Because obtaining citizenship in a country like the United States can take up to seven years, it is essential to have an experienced and knowledgeable immigration lawyer working on your side.

Services we provide include the following:

  • Application for U.S. green card or temporary Visa
  • Preparation for citizenship application and tests
  • Facilitation of access to citizenship in emergency situations
  • Skillful representation in court
