US Immigration Help

Immigration Attorney

US Immigration Reform is a hot topic. For decades lawmakers, NGOs and the CIS have discussed ways they can improve the US immigration system. Meanwhile, millions of people: hardworking men and women, their children; people who escaped their countries due to economic crisis; people who lost their US immigration status due to no fault of their own, are fighting to survive and make a living. They are called "illegals", "aliens", and in the best case scenario "undocumented aliens." While working in the US and paying taxes they are deprived of the US social security benefit system, health system, educational system, and live in constant fear of being deported from the place which now is their home. Unfortunately, very often, even a skilled US immigration attorney cannot "beat" the current system and help these families. In many cases however, people have hope without realizing it. A long forgotten birth certificate, an application filed by a relative ten years ago, or even such a simple thing as a record of working and paying taxes may make all the difference in the world.
