Cherry Hill Immigration Lawyer Helps Navigate Complex U.S. Laws
New Jersey attorney helps with visa petitions and provides other vital services
Across the world, men and women sacrifice to start a new chapter of their lives in the United States. However, U.S. immigration laws can complicate or thwart this goal. My Cherry Hill firm, the Law Offices of Joshua A. Benjamin, LLC, represents clients in all types of immigration matters, bringing knowledge, experience and passion to each case.
Law firm handles asylum, deportation and citizenship issues
In Camden and Burlington counties as well as the surrounding areas, we take on a full range of immigration-related legal concerns, including:
- Asylum and refugee status — People who have been mistreated or fear mistreatment in their own country because of their race, religion or political beliefs can seek asylum if they are now in the United States. From outside the country, they can apply for entry as refugees. After thoroughly analyzing the facts, we prepare a compelling argument that can support a claim of eligibility.
- Deportation defense — A notice to appear at a removal hearing might seem like the end of an American dream. However, we can defend you in a deportation proceeding whether you’ve been targeted due to an arrest, a problem with documentation or some other reason. It is often possible to obtain discretionary relief from deportation based on humanitarian concerns and other factors.
- Citizenship — When there are questions about birthright citizenship or a lawful permanent resident wishes to start the naturalization process, we work diligently to help clients establish U.S. citizenship.
Starting with a free initial consultation, our firm gives you the knowledge and support needed to make smart choices about your immigration options.
Dedicated counselor represents individuals applying for visas
Whether you want to start a new life in America or just want to work, study or visit here, you need proper authorization to prevent serious legal problems. In addition to assisting people who seek a green card to live here on a permanent basis, our firm also assists businesses and individuals with H1B applications and other visas that allow someone to work here for a fixed period. We also handle matters relating to educational and tourism visas.
Firm assists with family-based and employment-based immigration
Lawful permanent resident status within the United States gives non-citizens the ability to live and work here without fear of removal as long as certain conditions are meant. Several paths exist for individuals who wish to acquire what most people call a “green card.” There are strict yearly limits on immigrants, based on country of origin and category of visa application. Immediate relatives, such as spouses, children under age 21, parents and prospective adoptees of U.S. citizens are not subject to annual caps. However, family preference immigrant visas for adult children, family members of green card holders and siblings of U.S. citizens are limited. Employment-based immigrant visas are categorized into five preference groups. Top priority goes to individuals of “extraordinary ability,” outstanding professors and executives of multinational companies. These visa applicants are also subject to yearly limits.
We will carefully evaluate the facts of your situation to determine the most effective route for obtaining permanent residence. Whether the application stems from a family sponsorship, employment in the United States or persecution in another country, our firm advises on every stage of the process, from the initial petitions and applications to U.S. Customs and Immigration Services and the U.S. Department of Labor to final granting of an immigrant visa or adjustment of status.
