What is an Immigration Lawyer?

An immigration lawyer that is based in the United States uses their knowledge of the law to assist people who live outside of the country to enter or to ensure those already in the United States stay here. Individuals who Portland immigration lawyers represent could include immigrants who want to become permanent residents to create a life here in America or immigrants who need temporary visas to receive an education or come here to work. 

Other than permanent and temporary visas, immigration lawyers can handle additional circumstances. At Anable & Rivera, we can handle any immigration case, no matter how simple or complex. Cases we handle include:

  • Removal Defenses
  • Deferred Action for Childhood Arrivals
  • Waiver of Inadmissibility
  • Violence Against Women Act
  • Adjustment of Status
  • Fiance Petitions
  • Asylum Cases
  • Green Cards

If you’re an immigrant and one of your situations resembles any of the above, give our office a call for a consultation.

What Does an Immigration Lawyer Do?

The one thing all immigration law firms have in common is that they are working either with, within, or against the federal government’s immigration system. Not only do immigration lawyers help with the situations listed in the previous section, but they also help with defending against deportation. Immigration lawyers will provide you with advice, guidance, and, if you request it, representation in court. Immigration lawyers will also take on whole businesses rather than individual clients to help immigrants find jobs. Another area immigration lawyers will work in is assisting ICE or other programs within the Department of Homeland Security. 

When you choose one of our immigration lawyers, you’re choosing someone who cares. Our team is highly educated and will make sure the livelihood, the future, and even the safety of you and your family are taken care of. You want to hire a team that is committed to providing the following:

  • Provides open communication and frequent updates about your case. 
  • Someone who is an expert on immigration policy and law. 
  • Give you the comforting support you need to get you through the process. 
  • Someone with years of experience working on a number of situations. 
  • Are patient enough to guide you through the process.
