Our firm represents immigrants facing deportation because of immigration or criminal violations. Ms. Rubin personally reviews all aspects of a deportation case and carefully explains what remedies are available. You or a member of your family may be placed in removal proceedings or, even worst, in detention while awaiting an appointment in the Immigration Court.
An Immigrant may be deported for a variety of reasons, including unauthorized presence in the United Status and commission of certain crimes, even when they occurred decades ago.
Deportation has serious consequences: family separation, sometimes forever in certain criminal cases.
Relatives of Permanent Residents and of U.S. Citizens may be eligible to obtain a Green Card in the U.S. or through Consular Processing in their home country. Immediate Relatives are not subject to a waiting period and may adjust their status in the U.S. if they entered legally or were the beneficiary of a specific application or petition filed on or before April 30, 2001. The category of Immediate Relatives includes minor children of U.S. Citizens, Spouses and Widow(er)s of U.S. Citizens and Parents of Adult U.S. Citizens.
Aliens on whose behalf a U.S. Citizen, Legal Permanent Resident, or Employer have filed a petition for such Aliens to receive Immigration Benefits from the U.S. Immigration and Naturalization Service. Beneficiaries generally receive a lawful status as a result of their relationship to a U.S. Citizen, Lawful Permanent Resident, or U.S. Employer.
An Alien coming temporarily to the United States to engage in Commercial Transactions which do not involve gainful employment in the United States, i.e., engaged in International Commerce on behalf of a Foreign Firm, not employed in the U.S. labor market, and receives no salary from US sources.
The H2B visa allows U.S. employers to hire skilled or unskilled foreign workers in temporary or seasonal non-agricultural occupations. The employer has to prove that there are no qualified, available U.S. workers to fill the existing job opening. The H2B visa may not be used as a stop-gap measure to fill the employer's regular permanent positions vacant as result of a severe labor shortage in the geographic area of employment. Temporary employment should not be confused with part-time employment which does not qualify for temporary labor certification.
H2A visas are designed for agricultural employers to bring workers to work in agricultural related employment. Fruit farms, vegetable farms, fish farms, orchards, greenhouses, cattle ranches, tobacco farms all fall in this category.
H2A visas are used by agricultural employers to employ skilled or unskilled foreign nationals in temporary agricultural jobs when qualified U.S. workers aren't available. To obtain H2A visas, the agriculural employer shows that the need is temporary, and that no US workers will be affected by the employment of the foreign national.
