Law in the United States is a vast and complicated field of knowledge. Attorneys not only specialize – they sub-specialize. From estate planning attorneys who only work with living trusts to malpractice attorneys who only work with brain injury patients, the specializations are many, and there are more developing all the time. But let’s explore what our Ohio immigration lawyers do day-to-day.
However, the one field of legal expertise that most U.S.-born citizens are unfamiliar with – because it so rarely impacts them personally – is immigration law. Still, you may encounter immigration issues if you are a U.S. citizen trying to bring your spouse or family to the United States, or if you are a U.S. employer trying to bring immigrants to the United States to work for your business.
Sam Shihab & Associates: Ohio and Beyond
Due to the complex nature of immigration law, we recommend you contact an experienced Ohio immigration lawyer for three decades of combined immigration law experience. Sam Shihab & Associates has offices in Dublin and Columbus, Ohio – as well as Michigan, and Texas. But our services go beyond those four states, as we help clients from all over the country and the world.
Roles of an Ohio Immigration Lawyer
Perhaps the most well-known job of an immigration attorney is helping people become naturalized U.S. citizens. Attorneys gather and review the necessary documents, answer questions, and offer guidance and advice along the pathway to citizenship. However, that’s only one of an immigration attorney’s roles.
A great deal of an immigration attorney’s time is spent helping international students, professionals, entrepreneurs, and investors obtain visas to enter the U.S. Immigration attorneys help families reunite in the United States, and they help employers hire immigrants and stay compliant with a vast number of immigration-related employment laws and regulations.
Our employment-based green card practice is very active in filing H-1B visas, L-1 visas, Labor Certifications, I-140 petitions, and adjustment of status petitions. Our family-based green card services include filing fiancé visa petitions (K-1 visa), green card through marriage petitions (Form I-130), and applications to remove conditions on green cards. The firm represents many Dublin residents in filing naturalization petitions as well.
An immigration attorney can represent an undocumented immigrant threatened with deportation or a foreign millionaire looking for a great investment opportunity in the U.S. One day even immigration law could conceivably become more specialized, but for now, if you need a visa, a green card, or an attorney representing you in immigration court, you can contact a trustworthy Columbus immigration attorney for any and all of your immigration-related legal needs.
Every immigration process takes time and patience, so it’s best to get started by contacting our Ohio immigration attorneys today.
