Immigration Law Attorneys in Newport News, Hampton, Norfolk, Portsmouth
Enjoying the world we live in is a wonderful experience, and becoming a citizen of the United States is a great opportunity. Strict immigration laws are in effect and require compliance to legally reside in the United States. At Thomas L. Hunter and Associates, our focus on immigration law includes the resources and legal insight to be able to effectively handle your case.
We can handle multiple immigration law issues, including but not limited to:
- U.S. citizenship
- Deportation defense
- Employment-based green cards
- Family-based green cards
A person may apply for citizenship through naturalization if he or she has been living in the United States legally as permanent resident for at least five years, or three years if married to a U.S. citizen.
Citizenship through naturalization is a great opportunity for some individuals because on becoming a legal U.S. citizen, they will automatically receive all benefits of citizenship without having to worry about losing permanent resident status. In addition, naturalized citizens mayY petition to admit family members under family immigration laws.
Visas and Green Cards
Visas and green cards allow people to enter the United States and remain there lawfully. There are several kinds of visas which allow people to enter the U.S. temporarily for a specific purpose. Green Cards allow the holder permanent resident status, and must be obtained by a family-based petition.
