Orange County & LA Immigration Services
The immigration laws in the United States are complicated and can be confusing. Whether you are looking for an attorney to help your spouse or family member enter the U.S. and stay legally or you are an employer seeking to hire a foreign worker, we can help. We offer immigration services throughout Los Angeles, Orange County, and the Inland Empire. We also provide court representation for those facing a deportation or removal case, including criminal aliens and aliens detained in ICE detention facilities.
When looking for an immigration lawyer it is important to select one with the right education and experience to handle your case. Many people believe that attorneys are too expensive and they go to other legal service providers. However, many of these other legal service providers often charge more that what an actual immigration attorney would have charged for the same service. If you are seeking lower cost immigration assistance, why not call an attorney first? Please bear in mind that paralegals, legal document assistants, and immigration consultants cannot provide legal advice or represent you in court or at an immigration interview, such as those for an adjustment of status, citizenship, or asylum application. If you have an application that is poorly prepared by a non-attorney, at the interview stage you may find yourself on your own dealing with unforeseen consequences. If you have submitted an application that an unlicensed "consultant" helped you prepare, you may even wind up in immigration court facing deportation.
U.S. Citizens and green card holders (lawful permanent residents) can sponsor their relatives to immigrate to the United States. Depending on your immigration status (USC or LPR) and the degree of relation to you, it can take anywhere from a few months to many years for a visa to be approved and your relative to be able to get their green card. You should consult our office if you are planning on sponsoring a family member for a green card. Family immigration often has a long waiting period for visas to become available. If your relative qualifies for another visa category, a skilled immigration attorney such as Derrick Taberski may be able to help your family member come to the United States sooner.
Business immigration categories include non-immigrant categories, such as the H-1B, L, O, and P non-immigrant categories as well as immigrant categories such as PERM and nurse visas. A related category is the investor class visa, such as the EB-5, which would entitle the investor to a green card, and the E visa, which is a non-immigrant visa. The Law Office of Derrick J. Taberski can work with employers and prospective employees to obtain permission to come to the U.S. and work, either short term or long term.
Many aliens, even greencard holders, can find themselves in immigration court. They may have been convicted of a crime for which ICE now considers them removable, or they may have submitted an application for a benefit for which they do not qualify and have alerted the government to their presence, or they may have done any number of things to become "out of status" and therefore removable. Many people have valid defenses against being removed or deported but it requires the services of a skilled attorney like Derrick Taberski in order to properly present your case. If you or a loved one is facing removal proceedings in immigration court or you are looking for help to get someone you know out of immigration detention, please contact us immediately.
