Attorneys at the Law Offices of Jay J Tanenbaum in Los Angeles help people throughout Southern California needing immediate assistance in a difficult immigration matter, from having trouble obtaining a Green Card to being at risk for deportation due to implication in a criminal case. We help people seek asylum in the U.S., obtain visas for employment or to reunite family members, and take the necessary steps along the path toward citizenship from lawful permanent residence to becoming naturalized citizens of the United States (http://uscis.gov).
A green card provides proof of residency and authorizes the ability to work in the U.S. on a permanent basis. There are only a limited number of visas available each year, and one’s eligibility is strictly regulated according to a quota and preference systems based on family relationship, type of employment sought, country of origin, and more.
Individuals can be deported for a myriad of reasons. You can be deported for failing to register, provided falsified documentation, being identified under a security threat assessment, voting illegally, or for receiving public assistance or being a public charge. The most common reason for deportation is because of a criminal conviction. Any alien arrested for a crime should immediately contact an experienced criminal defense attorney who understands immigration cases as well.
Whether seeking employment-based or family-based immigration, the process can be lengthy and often overwhelming for the applicant. Extensive documentation is required, and interviewers and other procedures can be especially intimidating. We work with you from the start to help ensure success with your immigration in a timely fashion.
If you have suffered persecution in your home country or fear persecution due to your race, religion, nationality, membership in a particular social group, or political opinion, you may be able to seek asylum or refugee in the U.S. We can help seek asylum if you are already in the U.S., or even if you are outside the U.S. through consular processing at the local U.S. Embassy or Consulate.
Naturalization is the process of individuals acquiring nationality and all the privileges of U.S. citizenship. We help permanent residents on the path to citizenship throughout the entire process, including any hearings and appeals before the immigration officer, which may be necessary to achieve success.
