A lawful permanent resident (green card holder) or U.S. citizen can sponsor another family member for a lawful permanent residency (green card).

There are many specific steps that must be completed properly by both the sponsor and the immigrant before they can come to this country. Our Winston-Salem immigration team is experienced, compassionate and honest. We will fight for you and your family.

Winston-Salem Immigration : Deportation Defense

Deportation is the process that the U.S. Government uses to order a non-citizen removed from the country. It is also known as “simple removal”. The order of deportation is normally in response to violation of immigration laws. Examples include entering the country illegally or from having criminal convictions. If someone is deported, they can lose their rights to ever enter the U.S. again. It is a very serious issue. Deportation is actually a legal process. However, anyone who is subject to a deportation order has certain rights under the law; those rights normally have to be exercised prior to being removed from the country. One of those rights is the right to challenge the deportation for many different reasons. If you are being deported, call our Winston-Salem immigration team immediately and let us help you.

Any non-citizens who have violated the Immigration and Nationality Act can be deported. Violations can include but are not limited to:

  • Illegally entering the country, while being an inadmissible alien at the time of entry.

  • Violating a term or condition of non-immigrant status.

  • Falsifying immigration documents.

  • Helping others to illegally enter the U.S.

  • Failing to register with the proper authorities.

  • Engaging in marriage fraud in order to gain admittance.

Winston-Salem Immigration : Waivers of Inadmissibility

If you are ineligible to be admitted to the U.S. as an immigrant, not eligible for an adjustment of status while inside the country, or if you are a non-immigrant applicant who is inadmissible to the United States for any reason, then you need to file for a “Waiver of the Grounds of Inadmissibility.”

People can be deemed inadmissible to the United States for many different causes, below are some of the grounds for denying persons entry to this country:

  • Health-related reasons, such as a communicable disease like tuberculosis, gonorrhea, syphilis, and other diseases, or those who have other physical or mental disorders.

  • Criminally-related issues, such as individuals convicted of drug crimes, violent crimes, prostitution, and commercialized vice.

  • National security risks, such as terrorists, spies, or any other person who would pose a risk to the safety of this country.

  • Illegal immigrants and those who have violated immigration laws, such as those who have committed fraud to gain illegal entry and those who have been previously deported.

  • False Claims of U.S. citizenship.

  • Miscellaneous grounds, which include such categories as practicing polygamists and others.

A “Waiver of Grounds of Inadmissibility” is a tool that people who are inadmissible to the U.S. can apply for. The application is submitted to a consular office, the U.S. Citizenship and Immigration Services, or to a Winston-Salem immigration court. There are many forms and procedures that can apply depending on the specific facts of the case. Please note that if someone has made false claims of U.S. citizenship, then they are permanently banned and cannot apply for a waiver.

If you need to apply for a waiver, get the experienced legal guidance you need from the Winston-Salem immigration team at the Dummit Fradin.

Winston-Salem Immigration : U.S. Citizenship

The process of becoming a U.S. citizen is known as naturalization. In the majority of cases, a lawful permanent resident who has had a green card for 5 years can apply to become a U.S. citizen. It would be wise to consult an experienced Winston-Salem immigration Attorney, prior to applying for naturalization, so you can make sure that you fully understand the procedures and the application process, and so the process goes smoothly and gets successfully granted.

Naturalization Requirements:

  • Be 18 years of age or older.

  • Have been physically present in the U.S. for 30 months within the 5-year period prior to applying.

  • Have continuous residence in the United States as an LPR for at least 5 years immediately prior to application.

  • Reside continuously in the U.S. from the date of application to the date of naturalization.

  • Have been a Lawful Permanent Resident (LPR) for at least 5 years immediately preceding their application for naturalization.

  • Be able to read, write, and speak English and have knowledge and understanding of U.S. history and government.

  • Have lived within the state for at least 3 months prior to application.

  • Be a person of good moral character dedicated to the furtherance of the Constitution and the United States.
