Areas of Law Description
Whether a person may obtain U.S. citizenship depends on many variables, including the person's moral character (arrests, whether taxes have been paid, other discretionary factors), how s/he obtained their permanent residency, any actions taken that have made the person deportable or indicate an abandonment of permanent residency, and their familial relationship to other U.S. citizens. Heather has a 100% approval rate on U.S. citizenship cases.
Expedited Removal Expanded at Southern and Northern borders. Expedited Removal is the process by which individuals are removed from the U.S. without a hearing (without seeing an immigration judge). This program was recently expanded to points within 100 miles along the northern and southern borders of the U.S. The program is not intended for Mexicans and Canadians, but they are still subject to it.
The visitor's visa is required for all visa applicants wishing to travel to the US on a business or pleasure, unless they are from a country with visa waiver status. Typical visitor visas are granted for a 6 month period, extendable to 1 year per visit. Applicants for visitor visas must show that they qualify under provisions of the Immigration and Nationality Act. The presumption in the law is that every visitor visa applicant is an intending immigrant.
