A wide range of legal issues can challenge immigrants as they seek to pursue a residency in the United States.

Immigration law is a separate and complex field within the legal system. Individuals who come to the United States for a variety of reasons have certain protections afforded to them by Congress. Once you are here, even illegally, your deportation is not automatic. As an immigrant, you do have certain Due Process rights, which include the right to be informed of the immigration-related consequences of your pleas in a court of law as well as effective assistance of counsel. Having an immigration lawyer can be highly useful for your case.

If you have not been informed that you will, or may, be deported for pleading guilty to a crime, you may afterward challenge your deportation on the ground of ineffective assistance of counsel. If you have helped the government in prosecuting a crime, a U-visa may be available for you to reside permanently in the United-States. As a U.S. citizen or permanent resident, you have the right to petition for your relatives or fiancé to reside with you in the United-States. If you fear persecution upon returning to your home country, you are entitled to asylum. Your permanent residency in the United States may be just one consultation away.

If you live in Baltimore or Silver Spring or Montgomery County, MD, get in touch with our immigration attorney to keep your legal rights protected.
