Lawfully entering and remaining inside the United States for any length of time can be a frustratingly complex process. Between the complex processes that applicants for visas and green cards must go through and the extensive wait times for USCIS processing, it can be hard to effectively manage the immigration process.

Fortunately, help is available from an experienced Washington DC immigration lawyer. The legal team at Hacking Law Practice, LLC have a thorough understanding of the complexities surrounding immigration law and the various requirements it sets out for prospective immigrants. Whether you need help seeking Legal Permanent Resident status, want to become a naturalized citizen, or simply need a visa for a business or tourist trip, guidance from an attorney who has assisted people just like you is the key to maximizing your chances of a favorable outcome.

Assistance with the Immigration Process

Each year, the United States sets out various restrictions and limitations on how many people can immigrate to the country on a long-term or permanent basis. In addition to these limitations, potential immigrants must navigate through the complex application process for the status they seeking. Each status has various requirements and guidelines all of which can get extremely confusing.

Fortunately, a Washington DC attorney could provide irreplaceable assistance navigating the application process for family-based immigrant visas, employment-based immigrant visas, immigration based on asylum or refugee status, and more. Our team could also assist individuals who are already within U.S. borders apply for a green card, seek work authorization, or sponsor a family member to immigrate to the U.S. from abroad.

Seeking Naturalization as a U.S. Citizen

Any person born on U.S. soil or born to at least one parent with U.S. citizenship automatically attains citizenship rights themselves. However, the process to become a naturalized citizen after being born in another country is quite a bit more complicated. If someone meets the prerequisite conditions for the naturalization process, becoming a U.S. citizen could open up a world of new privileges and opportunities for them. Guidance from a knowledgeable immigration attorney in DC could help a prospective new citizen understand what requirements they need to fulfill, what steps they need to take, and what obstacles could get in their way during the naturalization process.

Obtaining the Right Visa for Short-Term Travel

Even if someone only intends to remain within U.S. borders for a limited time, they still may need to interact with USCIS before arriving at a port of entry. More specifically, anyone not originating from a country that participates in the Visa Waiver Program must obtain a nonimmigrant visa before they will be allowed entry into the United States.

Given the expansive list of nonimmigrant visas that a person could apply for, picking the right one and meeting all the requirements during the application process can be deceptively difficult. Support from a lawyer in Washington DC could simplify the immigration process immensely.

Sriram Devanathan

im is a great attorney who always has his human side “ON”. The clients come first to him. When approached for time sensitive issues, he was readily available and was prompt. I have had to reach out to him for myself & have recommended him to others. He always welcomed everyone and gave patient hearing. And he would not mind recommending other attorneys’ if he feels that they would better serve that particular case. Even if it means one less client for him. That sums up who Jim is. Thank you Jim!

Bouchra Aanouz

This firm was amazing helping me with my husband’s case. Jim and his team were very responsive to all my questions and concerns. i wish I had consulted them earlier as my husband’s case was stuck in Administrative Processing for over a year and a half. Two months after I gave my case to Jim, my husband was granted his visa. Would definitely recommend them and already have recommended them to my friends.
