naturalization in the United States are far from easy.

Why choose an El Paso immigration attorney from our firm?
Maney & Gordon, P.A. has many years of experience in a variety of situations and legal areas. For employers, there are many issues that must be addressed, and many questions that could arise. Issues like an
employment visa I-9 form and
employment eligibility verification must be addressed, as there are very serious legal penalties if these laws are not followed to the letter. Another issue that you may desire to discuss with our firm if you are an employer is that of
labor certification, Sometimes, there is an individual overseas whom you want to work for your company and who must therefore establish
permanent residence in the United States, or become a U.S.
Information for individuals seeking
various types of visas is available from our knowledgeable immigration firm as well. There are essentially two categories of visas: the
immigrant visa, which will allow a person to stay in the country indefinitely as long as they comply with the laws and maintain eligibility for renewal, and
non-immigrant visas, which are short term visas available for reasons such as visiting, tourism, education, etc.
An main example of a long term visa is a green card. This legal identification establishes a person’s permanent residency in the United States, but does not grant them the extended rights and privileges of citizenship. A person could also obtain a long term visa by applying for and being granted
asylum in the U.S. in order to escape imminent harm or persecution in their country of origin. This status is only granted to a strict number of applicants each year, so make sure you have the counsel and representation of a capable immigration lawyer. Another example of a non-immigrant visa is a
student visa, which allows for a temporary stay in the country while the applicant attends an approved university, college or institution. This application must be approved by the Department of Homeland Security (D.H.S.) before the individual may attend the school, however, so make sure you apply in a timely manner.
Without legal assistance from an experienced attorney, it is estimated that you will face a 67% chance of being denied entrance into the country by the U.S. government. This rejection of your immigration efforts could force you to begin the process all over again or even worse, face deportation. Deportation is always a frightening thing, but our firm could provide you with deportation defense, as well as help with a petition for
cancellation of removal.
