OFFERING COMPREHENSIVE LEGAL SERVICES IN THE NEBRASKA PANHANDLE COUNTIES, INCLUDING DAWES, DEUEL, SCOTTS BLUFF, CHEYENNE, MORRILL & KIMBALL
Dealing with immigration issues can be confusing, frustrating, and daunting. Any time you need to handle legal issues related to governmental entities, such as the U.S. Citizenship and Immigration Services (USCIS), the laws, procedures, and red tape can be overwhelming. Omissions, mistakes, and missed deadlines on applications and other documentation can all result in delays, denials, and missed opportunities.
Because of the complexity of the laws and procedures to which you may be subject, you should never try to handle your immigration matter alone. At Island Law Office, PC, LLO, our team handles a variety of immigration issues with compassion, attention to detail, and diligence. We are here to help you navigate the process, ease the legal burden, and assist you in seeking desired results, whether that involves seeking asylum or fighting deportation.
Our Immigration Services
Our firm provides the following immigration services:
Asylum assists individuals fleeing persecution from other countries. Seeking asylum is the path for you to remain in the United States and prevents you from being forced to return to the country of persecution.
DEPORTATION AND REMOVAL DEFENSE
We provide representation for individuals facing deportation or removal proceedings from the United States. This includes filing waivers, contesting grounds of inadmissibility or deportability, or arranging for voluntary departure.
ADJUSTMENT OF STATUS
Individuals who wish to become Lawful Permanent Residents (LPRs) and obtain their “green card” must go through an Adjustment of Status process. We assist those clients in filing and obtaining this change in status.
CITIZENSHIP AND NATURALIZATION
As a Lawful Permanent Resident, becoming a United States citizen is often the final step in the immigration process. Having an attorney evaluate your eligibility to apply for citizenship helps prevent issues from arising after you have already paid the application fees.
Criminal convictions for noncitizens can result in the loss of lawful status or even removal from the United States. Many criminal defense attorneys are unable to advise their noncitizen clients about the impact of a criminal conviction on their immigration status. If you have been charged with a crime as a noncitizen, it is imperative to speak with an immigration attorney who is experienced in the immigration consequences of criminal convictions. We strongly recommend that you consult with our Gering immigration attorney before deciding on the acceptance of any plea to a criminal offense.
Put an Experienced Immigration Lawyer on Your Side
If you are facing any of the above immigration issues, our firm can help. Let us provide the guidance and representation you need when subject to the bureaucracy of governmental agencies, such as the U.S. Citizenship and Immigration Services, Immigration and Customs Enforcement (ICE), the U.S. Department of State, and the Department of Homeland Security.
Immigration issues are uniquely complex, subject to complicated laws, and overseen by federal agencies that work together or independently. Our firm can help you navigate the issue you face and work with the appropriate federal agencies on your behalf in seeking a favorable outcome.
