Fighting the immigration bureaucracy
The U.S. immigration system is a frustrating web of convoluted laws and oversized bureaucratic agencies, each with its own rules, regulations and policies. Gonzalez Olivieri LLC maneuvers aggressively through the red tape to fight for your legal benefits and rights when dealing with:
- Department of Homeland Security (DHS)
- U.S. Citizenship and Immigration Services (USCIS)
- U.S. Customs and Border Protection (CBP)
- U.S. Immigration and Customs Enforcement (USICE)
- Department of Labor (DOL)
- Worldwide consulates and embassies
- Immigration court
- Federal court
- Detention facilities
Applying for a visa
When applying for a visa, sending your forms to USCIS is not enough. The U.S. government sets strict requirements on qualifications and outlines inflexible procedures for filing. Mistakes on your application can lead to crucial delays and a potential denial that can disrupt your family, home, job, and in some cases, your freedom. Each type of visa comes with its own set of essential criteria, which must precisely match your qualifications. Gonzalez Olivieri LLC discusses your short-term and ultimate immigration goals to set up a long-range plan. We thoroughly analyze your situation to choose the appropriate pathway and meticulously gather evidence that proves each element of your eligibility. We review red flags — such as past arrests, deportations or illegal employment — and address these potentially damaging issues from the start.
Evolving immigration laws
Immigration policy is under constant revision and the laws are frequently modified, creating a constantly changing immigration landscape. The various government agencies that administer immigration benefits regularly update their procedures, forms and guidelines, further sending the system into flux.
Gonzalez Olivieri LLC stays current on shifts in immigration law and remains ready to react to potential changes in the pipeline. To successfully advise you, they consider not only the laws as they exist but the possibility for beneficial — as well as harmful — reforms. They relentlessly pursue your case and develop unique solutions to complicated issues.
