Should you decide to work with our firm, we’ll assign an immigration lawyer to your case and begin representing you immediately. Don’t delay; your new life is waiting.
Do you have a family member looking to come to the United States? We can help them. We will ensure that the process for your family petition runs smoothly. Oftentimes, petitions are complicated and expensive. We will walk alongside you and your family members throughout the process and offer legal advice where necessary.
Petition for Lawful Permanent Residence or Change of Immigration Status
Our team can help you fill out the I-130, Petition for Alien Relative form and handle all case correspondence on your behalf. Once your petition gets approved, we will help you apply for lawful permanent residence or another desired selection, like changing your status in the United States.
Petition for Permanent Residence for Victims of Abuse by a US Citizen
Additionally, if you are the victim of abuse by a U.S. citizen as a spouse, child, or parent, we can help you file Form 1-360 VAWA Self-Petitioners, which allows individuals to file independently for permanent residence.
Military Parole In Place
Are you a family member of a U.S. military service member, but do not have the proper papers to be in the United States? Military parole in place (PIP) is an option to support you. Parole in place (PIP) is for eligible undocumented family members of US service members who are:
- Active-duty members of the U.S. armed forces
- Individuals in the Selected Reserve of the Ready Reserve
- Veterans who served on active duty or in the Selected Reserve of the Ready Reserve and who were not dishonorably discharged
Beneficiaries who are granted PIP are provided authorization to stay and work in the United States. They are also considered as having a lawful immigration status for purposes of certain immigration benefits, such as a Green Card. Don’t delay in taking advantage of this program’s benefits should your family member’s services to our country qualify you.
We Will Help You Collect Any Necessary Documentation for PIP Approval
With military parole in place, you will need to supply certain documentation to be granted residence in the United States. U.S. Citizenship and Immigration Services may require the following forms of documentation:
- Form I-131, Application for Travel Documentation
- Marriage certificate or a document that proves the termination of a previous marriage
- Birth certificate of the qualifying U.S. military person
- Proof of enrollment in the Defense Enrollment Eligibility Reporting System (DEERS)
- DD Form 214, or other documentation that proves the qualifying individual’s relation to the U.S. armed forces
- Proof that the service member approves the parole in place
- Passport photographs
You may also supply other evidence for consideration if you think it may support your case, such as personal photographs showing a positive relationship with the service member.
An appeal is an application in writing to the authority that oversees the immigration decision. If the courts have already ruled against your case or dismissed a case in the past, there is still hope. Attorney Hilary Walsh and her team at New Frontier Immigration Law can assist you in the appeal of your case.
What Is Involved in an Immigration Appeal?
Our team can file an appeal on your behalf with the United States Department of Justice’s Board of Immigration Appeals (BIA). From there, we can provide the following services:
- Prepare documents for your case to be reviewed by an Appellate Immigration Judge
- Collect evidence for your appeal to support your case
- Handle communications with the Administrative Appeals Office (AAO) and the Executive Office for Immigration Review (EOIR)
- File certain motions and forms in their required order and inform you of any necessary fees to do so
- Represent you in legal proceedings if necessary
Our legal team has extensive experience successfully filing appeals and pushing for a positive outcome. Attorney Hilary Walsh has created a reputation within the immigration law community for her ability to win an appeal. She has similar experience in motions to reopen as well, which is an important defensive tool if you’ve been deported or ordered removed.
A bond is money paid to release a detained foreign national essentially promising that, once released, they will attend their mandatory court hearings. For example, after ICE detains a foreign national, they will set a bond amount for those who are eligible. Once that bond is paid, the foreign national is free to return to their home with the promise they will not fail to appear at their hearings.
At New Frontier Immigration Law, it is our primary goal to see every immigration center emptied. Our legal team is doing just that, one person at a time. We are renowned for getting bonds from Immigration Judges who otherwise deny them–often securing the least expensive bond amount for our clients. Our legal team drives these outcomes because of our meticulous and impassioned God-given purpose to free your loved ones and get them home.
We Will Guide You Throughout Your Case
During your initial strategic session, we will review whether your loved one is eligible for a bond and confirm how much the bond will be per 8 USC 1363. However, generally, the minimum bond amount is $1,500. If the bond amount is too high for you or your family to afford, we can petition to appeal the initial bond amount.
Once you are prepared to pay the bond, we will look up the local ICE ERO Bon Acceptance Facilities, as listed on the U.S. Immigration and Customs Enforcement (ICE) website. Throughout your case, our team will be available for legal guidance, so do not hesitate to ask us anything.
Waivers for Entering Without Permission
If you are one of the millions of people who came to the United States without proper documentation, then you know the feeling of being trapped. We are here to help you get the pardon waiver you need to get you back to the United States as soon as possible.
What to Expect When Filing for a Provisional Unlawful Presence Waiver
Depending on the grounds for your inadmissibility, you can be issued a provisional unlawful presence waiver. This may require:
- Filing Form 1-601A, Application for Waiver of Grounds of Inadmissibility
- Meeting eligibility requirements to receive a waiver, such as being physically present in the United States and already in the process of receiving a legal immigration visa
- Appearing in an immigration visa interview
- Appearing in removal proceedings if necessary
We can carefully handle your case and help you fulfill all the requirements and documentation to gain entry to the United States.
When you are told that you are facing removal from the country, it can be a terrifying event. We will fight aggressively for your right to stay in the country no matter your current immigration status.
Immigrants who are facing deportation must appear before an immigration judge, making legal representation your most important asset in fighting an unjust decision. New Frontier Immigration Law wants to represent you in court.
Motions to Reopen
Many clients have either already left the country or will be leaving soon because their case was closed. Even after an initial case is handled, you still have rights! We can file a motion to reopen your case and help you stay in the country.
Resources to Learn More About Filing a Motion to Reopen Your Case
While our attorneys at New Frontier Immigration Law will guide you throughout your immigration case, we also understand the benefits of reading more about your rights. The following resources will inform you more about the legal process involved in trying to reopen your case:
- The Department of Justice released a guide, “How to File a Motion to Reopen,” which explains eligibility requirements, steps to file a motion, and forms you must fill out when submitting your petition.
- The American Immigration Council (AIC) prepared a pamphlet that answers common questions about motions to reopen and goes into further detail about the legal process.
- ICE provides unilateral motion notice and instructions on how to file a motion to reopen your case in both English and Spanish.
U Nonimmigrant Status (U-Visas) are for victims of criminal activity and the victims’ families. Those who have been victims of serious crime and are willing to assist law enforcement and/or other government officials in the investigation can seek this type of visa to remain in the country.
To apply for a U-visa, U.S. Citizenship and Immigration Services may require you to file the following types of forms:
- Form I-918, Petition for U Nonimmigrant Status
- Form I-918, Supplement B, U Nonimmigrant Status Certification
- Form I-192, Application for Advance Permission to Enter as Nonimmigrant
You may also have to submit a personal statement, which our legal team can help you draft. Additionally, if you need an extension of filing for a U-visa, our legal team can help you apply for one based on your needs.
Becoming a US Citizen is one of the most important events in the lives of many immigrants. There are many steps in the naturalization process, and we can help you along the way. This includes filing the right paperwork, representing you through any hearings, and even making recommendations on how to pass the naturalization test.
Those who came to the United States as undocumented immigrants when they were young have a variety of legal protections under the Deferred Action for Childhood Arrivals (DACA). We can help protect you from deportation, apply for work permits, and provide a pathway to a lawful immigration status.
