If you are faced with the possibility that you will be removed (deported) from the United States, hiring Olinger Law, Dallas – Fort Worth immigration attorney, will benefit you greatly whether you must go to immigration court or not.
Attorney Lynn Olinger has over 20 years of federal trial and federal appeals court experience, regularly appears in immigration courts, gets cases reopened in the immigration courts and in the Board of Immigration Appeals, and is a Board Certified Immigration Law Specialist who can represent you during your court hearings. We will also work to solve any problems with your visa, green card, or immigration status.
If you do not have to go to immigration court, and you want to apply for an immigration benefit, here are some reasons you will want to hire a Dallas immigration attorney:
A knowledgeable immigration attorney should take the time to talk about the laws for your case in a way that is easily understandable. Yes, the immigration laws are very complicated. But if your attorney is not making your case crystal clear to you, especially at the initial consultation, you’ve got the wrong lawyer! The immigration laws are complicated. They can be hard to understand not only for non-lawyers, but for attorneys who do not regularly practice and specialize in immigration law. Lynn Olinger, a Board Certified Immigration Law Specialist, will clearly explain exactly what the laws are for your case. This is a stressful process, and understanding what is happening in your case (or even understanding why it seems like nothing is happening) can help relieve the stress.
IT’S NOT JUST “FILLING IN FORMS”
The applications and forms are extensive. They can be hard to understand. They are trickier than they seem. Some ordinary words have very specific immigration law meaning. Hiring a immigration attorney in Dallas – Fort Worth, especially one who is an immigration specialist, will help you with your case because we understand the paperwork, the questions, and the required evidence. We have the experience that is needed to present a strong case in your favor.
DO IT YOURSELF…AT YOUR PERIL
Doing the process by yourself can have hidden dangers. Every time you apply for a benefit – even a renewal of work authorization – USCIS reviews your current and former applications and answers. There is a law or regulation behind almost every question on every form. Some of the questions have very specific immigration law meaning. You do not want to “lock” yourself into a wrong answer, or make a careless statement, that can come back to haunt you.
FIX THE PROBLEM
An experienced immigration attorney can help you straighten out any issues that you may have on your visa, green card, etc. A good immigration lawyer knows how to work with many different U.S. agencies to help fix issues that might be causing problems with your legal papers to be in the United States. For example, Olinger Law can help you with any of the following cases
- Request for Evidence, Notice of Intent to Deny, Denial. If you are applying for a waiver, a green card, a visa, or citizenship and get a Request For Evidence, a Notice Of Intent To Deny, or a denied application, we can help you figure out what is wrong with the application (or what immigration thinks is wrong with the application) and work with you to fix the issue.
- Green card divorce. If you have gotten divorced before receiving permanent residency and plan to remarry, it can be hard to prove that both marriages were not done to obtain permanent residency and an immigration attorney can help prove you are eligible for and deserve your green card.
- Benefits for children. If you are applying for a visa or green card and you have a child (under 21) or a child that will turn 21 years old before you get permanent residence, we will discuss the consequences and legal options with you.
- Work sponsorship. If you are trying to get a visa through work and the future employer has not offered to handle the process to obtain the visa, we will discuss how we can assist you.
HOW LONG IS TOO LONG?
Dallas – Fort Worth Immigration Law Attorney Lynn Olinger understands every step in the application process. We will help you understand how long is a “usual” wait time and how to tell if something is taking too long. We know who to contact in the bureaucracy, what to say (and what not to say), and what to do, to help move your case along if the government has gotten stuck in the processing, or mistakenly put your case to the side.
Olinger Law can represent you if you must go to an interview – either at U.S. Citizenship and Immigration Services, or at the State Department Consulate or Embassy in your home country.
Not all USCIS cases require an interview, but if your specific case is one that does, attorney Lynn Olinger will help you prepare by discussing with you many of the typical questions that are frequently asked. We will make sure that you understand and are comfortable with the questions. We will explain to you the reasons why certain questions are asked. We know what the examiners are looking for, and what causes them concern or makes them suspicious.
Hiring a Dallas immigration attorney can help in many ways. No matter what your needs are you can benefit from hiring an immigration attorney. We will help you with the evidence needed to prove your case, discuss with you how to obtain the documents you need for an immigration benefit, prepare all your documents and applications in a timely manner.
