HOW AN IMMIGRATION LAWYER CAN HELP WITH YOUR CASE

Whatever immigration issue you’re facing, the process you must go through is not always straightforward. You’ll have various forms you must fill out, criteria you must meet, and hearings you must attend. Mistakes, inconsistencies, or incomplete applications can delay the process or result in a denial of the request you’re making.

Your future depends on doing what’s required of you as you go through the US immigration system, but you might not be aware of all your obligations because of the nuances of the laws. An experienced Miami immigration lawyer is the best person to consult when you have questions about your immigration status, the conditions of your temporary stay in the United States, or the qualifications you must meet to become a US citizen. Even unintentional mistakes can lead to serious problems with your immigration status, and criminal offenses are especially disruptive to any noncitizen’s immigration efforts.

Our Miami immigration lawyer can relieve some of the stress you might be facing when pursuing your goals. We can help you understand common challenges in cases like yours and your options for overcoming them. Additionally, with our in-depth knowledge of immigration law, we can help you avoid making mistakes that could jeopardize your case.

IMMIGRATION MATTERS WE HANDLE

Foreign nationals must go through the US immigration system for any matter affecting their status in this country. A lawyer can assist at every stage. To facilitate an effective process, it’s essential to receive counsel from an attorney who knows how to handle various types of cases.

At Prya Murad Law, PLLC, we represent clients in an array of immigration matters, including:

  • Removal defense: A foreign national may face removal or deportation if they are alleged to be in the country unlawfully, have committed a crime, or engaged in other misconduct. Defending against removal requires aggressive advocacy. The defendant may be required to prove family connections or dependents in the Miami, FL, area or other extenuating circumstances to avoid removal. An experienced Miami immigration attorney is the best asset for anyone in this difficult situation.
  • Permanent residency: If a foreign national wants to live or work in the United States permanently, they must obtain a green card. The requirements for applying vary depending on the individual’s situation. Your Miami immigration attorney can not only assist you in determining whether you qualify for permanent residency, but they can also be the most important asset to have if you are charged with any crime that places your permanent residency in jeopardy.
  • Business visas: Foreign nationals need B-1 visas if they intend to conduct temporary business in the United States. The individual may be eligible for this visa if they are going to participate in activities such as attending business meetings, conferences, or trainings; consulting with associates; or negotiating contracts. Violating the terms and conditions of a B-1 visa carries severe penalties, even if such violations are unintentional. If you have questions about the terms of a business visa, you should speak with a Miami immigration lawyer as soon as possible.
  • Immigration visas: Foreign nationals can apply for employment- or family-based visas if they wish to legally enter the United States to work or reunite with family. There are different visas and eligibility types, depending on the reason for the visit. Many people encounter problems with their immigration efforts because they file their initial paperwork incorrectly or file for the wrong type of visa. Working with an experienced Miami immigration lawyer is the best way to avoid such issues or resolve them when they arise.
  • Family immigration: Naturalized citizens or legal permanent residents of the United States can apply to have family members, such as fiancés, spouses, children, and siblings, join them in the United States. They must show that they are legally related to and can financially support the individual. Family-based immigration offers some of the most flexibility when it comes to becoming a long-term temporary resident or legal permanent resident. Your Miami immigration lawyer can be extremely helpful when it comes to streamlining your immigration efforts or those of a loved one.
  • Asylum: For some foreign nationals, returning to their home country can endanger their lives. Those who have suffered or may suffer persecution in their home country because of race, religion, nationality, membership in a social group, or political opinion can seek asylum in the United States. If you and your family must seek asylum, you must be prepared to show how your home country has been affected by geopolitical stress, environmental disaster, or civil unrest of any kind. This is generally easy to prove in most cases by referring to the state of specific international affairs.
  • US citizenship: Naturalization and citizenship allow foreign nationals to remain in the United States indefinitely. It also establishes several rights and may enable the individual to bring family members to the country. Those seeking citizenship must meet certain criteria, such as having a specific length of continuous residence, physical presence in the country, and a good moral character.

Our immigration attorney in Miami is prepared to handle matters of all complexities. We attend to the details and deliver thoughtful advocacy.

CRIMINAL DEFENSE COUNSEL FOR NONCITIZENS

If you or a loved one is a noncitizen charged with any criminal offense in Miami, FL, you could face removal and significant challenges to any future residency or immigration applications. This is especially true for undocumented defendants that are not legally permitted to be in the country. Whatever your case entails, it is easy for the situation to seem hopeless. While your criminal case is very likely to influence your immigration efforts, the right defense attorney can significantly reduce the severity of your criminal case’s impact.

Ultimately, no attorney can ever promise their client a specific outcome to their case, but the team at Prya Murad Law, PLLC, can ensure your case receives our full attention and you have access to the full scope of our professional experience and resources. Our firm has extensive experience with a wide range of criminal cases in Miami, including:

  • Driving under the influence (DUI). It is illegal for anyone to operate a motor vehicle while intoxicated by drugs or alcohol. Doing so can lead to fines, jail time, suspension of their driver’s license, and severe implications for any immigration plans they may have had.
  • Violent crimes. Most violent criminal offenses qualify for felony status in Florida. Any noncitizen charged with a violent offense is very likely to face removal from the country if convicted.
  • Drug crimes. These are some of the most commonly prosecuted criminal offenses in Florida, and the penalties range in severity based on the type and amount of drugs in question.
  • Property crimes. Theft and destruction of property can potentially qualify as misdemeanor or felony offenses depending on the value stolen or destroyed and the specific actions taken by the defendant.

This is not an exhaustive list of all the criminal cases our firm accepts, and the team at Prya Murad Law, PLLC, offers the added advantage of our experience with US immigration law. Regardless of the severity of your charges and how you expect them to influence your immigration efforts, you can rely on us to provide compassionate guidance, carefully explaining your legal options so you can make the most informed decisions possible as your proceedings unfold.
