Q:Why Should I Hire an Immigration Attorney?
A:It is possible to complete forms on your own but immigration policies are constantly changing. Immigration is one of the most complex areas of law. Working with an experienced attorney improves your chances of successful immigration outcomes.
Q:If I File with USCIS & My Application Is Denied, Will I Be Placed in Deportation Proceedings Now That the Government Has All My Information?
A:It is against USCIS policy to refer cases to ICE where there is no evidence of fraud, a criminal conviction, or public safety threats. Before you apply, however, it is really important that you consult a Greer immigration attorney, especially if you have ever been arrested or convicted of any kind of crime.
Q:How Much Does the Immigration Process Cost?
A:The cost of immigration matters varies depending on each case and the surrounding situation. We prioritize competitive pricing. Unfortunately, immigration law firms cannot give flat prices for services as each case is contingent on many factors (such as criminal history, nationality, employment, etc.).
Q:What If I Don’t Live in the United States?
A:We understand that immigration clients may be based abroad or traveling. Therefore, we offer consultations over Skype, WhatsApp, and phone.
Q:What Is the Basis for Deportation?
A:Deportation occurs when an immigration or criminal law is broken in the United States and the unlawful person is apprehended and placed in deportation proceedings. That person will receive a Notice to Appear with a hearing date. At the hearing date, an immigration judge will determine if removal should be ordered. Our office works to help stop that removal order, thereby allowing the person to be reunited with their family members.
Q:I Entered the U.S. Illegally; Can I Apply for Legal Status?
A:Contrary to popular belief, being undocumented in the United States does not always lead to a 3- or 10-year ban. You may fall into one of various exception, such as Deferred Action for Childhood Arrivals (DACA), Violence Against Women Act (VAWA), or more. A confidential consultation will help us determine the best options available to you.
Q:I Am a U.S. Citizen. Will I Lose My Citizenship If I Get Benefits?
A:No, you cannot lose your citizenship if you get benefits. Once you become a U.S. citizen, the USCIS cannot deport you for public charge reasons and they must always let you re-enter the U.S. after a trip to another country.
Q:Does Colón Law Firm Attend Interviews with Me?
A:We will attend your interviews or go to USCIS with you if you desire.
