Familiar With All Aspects of Immigration Law

U.S. immigration law is extraordinarily complex, and there are many provisions that allow people who meet certain very specific criteria to apply for a better immigration status. There are, in many cases, multiple possible procedures for seeking the same outcome.

The immigration lawyers at Miley & Brown in Dallas, Texas, are highly familiar with the many facets of U.S. immigration law. We each go through numerous hours of continuing legal education on immigration topics every year, staying on top of the latest developments.

We will explore all options for achieving your immigration goals. Contact us for legal help in any of the following areas:

  • Violence Against Women Act (VAWA): If you have been battered by your spouse or parent, you may be eligible to apply for a green card and immigration benefits without his or her involvement.
  • U status: If you have been the victim of a crime or are being helpful to a law enforcement agency, you may be eligible to apply for resident status.
  • Temporary Protected Status (TPS): People from certain countries that have been designated as war zones or disaster areas may be eligible for temporary relief from deportation.
  • Nicaraguan Adjustment and Central American Relief Act (NACARA): Immigrants from certain countries may be eligible for special immigration benefits and relief.
  • Diversity Immigrant Visa Program: This program makes U.S. visas available to people from certain low-immigration countries through an annual lottery.
  • Waivers of inadmissibility: If you are considered ineligible for a visa or green card due to a criminal record or some other factor, you may be able to obtain a waiver.
  • Orphans and adoptions: If you would like to bring an orphan or other child into your family through adoption, we can guide you through the citizenship and naturalization process.
  • Mandamus lawsuits: U.S. Citizenship and Immigration Services (USCIS) has a duty to fairly consider and process immigration applications. If they are not doing so in your case, a lawsuit to require them to do so may be appropriate.
