Starting a new life in the United States takes courage but complicated immigration laws can frustrate that goal. One mistake in the application process could threaten your chance to achieve the American dream or could even put you in legal danger. The Carolina Law Group serves clients from around the world who are seeking temporary or permanent residence in our country. From offices in New Bern and Beaufort, we explain the immigration laws and procedures clearly while delivering honest advice about what you can expect. We work hard to obtain the result you seek, whether that is a visa, green card or citizenship.
In Craven, Carteret, Pamlico and Jones counties, as well as other locations, we advocate for people seeking various immigration benefits, including:
Laws and rules relating to immigration are being debated constantly and can change quickly and without notice. Something that happened to a friend or relative even a few months ago might not apply now. The only way to be sure that you’re getting accurate, up-to-date information is to speak with a qualified immigration lawyer.
Without warning, document problems or doubts raised about your visa validity can trigger a deportation proceeding. If you have received a Notice to Appear at a removal hearing, there is no time to waste. We are committed to making sure that people who wish to remain in the United States have every chance to do so. Our lawyers will counter untrue allegations and construct a strong argument to help you fight removal or seek discretionary relief.
Lawful permanent residents who have been in the country long enough (usually five years but three years for spouses of U.S. citizens) can begin the naturalization process. It requires numerous steps, starting with the completion of the form N-400 application. From there, we’ll advise you on the documents, background check, interview and civics and history test required to achieve U.S. citizenship.
