Immigration courts have recently been criticized and spoofed by a couple late night comedy shows. The first, by Last Week Tonight with John Oliver, featured an in depth, and somewhat disheartening look at the immigration court system. Oliver provides statistics as well as anecdotal stories about immigrants' experiences with the court system, while providing some laughs along the way. The link is below.
Our client Miguel, featured below with his family and our staff member Lucy, was able to successfully complete the difficult consular process and become a resident, with help from our firm. We are always happy to serve our clients, especially with the most complex parts of immigration law. Traditionally the consular process involves three separate steps. The first being a petition from a relative to provide the intending immigrant with the benefit of a visa. The second usually an application to waive issues that may keep an immigrant from coming to the United States. The third part is dealing with the consulate to help the immigrant obtain the final visa and come into the United States to becomea resident.
