Challenging Cases. Extraordinary Commitment. Impeccable Integrity.

Effective Representation In Immigration Court And Appeals

Immigration cases depend on the specific facts of the case and are often complex. The laws, regulations, and policies, or the interpretation and implementation of these three things, change often. This means that you cannot rely on comparisons to others’ cases that occurred years or even months ago. Every case is different and depends on the applicant’s own facts and interpretation of the law at the time of the decision. There really is no such thing as an easy, straightforward case anymore.

A failed (denied) application for relief or contact with the immigration authorities may result in the initiation of removal (deportation) proceedings against the applicant that can prevent you from remaining in or returning to the United States. Your immigration history is generally the most important factor to determine eligibility for future applications for legal status. Thus, a non-citizen facing an interview for an immigration benefit, a hearing before an immigration judge, or an appeal to the Board of Immigration Appeals or federal circuit court of appeals need representation they can trust, diligent lawyers like those at Rios Immigration Defense, P.S. who like what they do, and who have the knowledge, experience, and resources for to fight for you.
