Immigrant & Non-immigrant Visa (NIV) Waivers

Are you a Mexican immigrant or non-immigrant that has been found to be inadmissible to the United States? We can help.

There are times when persons are found to be inadmissible to the United States for previous criminal arrests, misrepresentation, or fraud (among other reasons). The immigration laws allow for waivers of those inadmissibilities for both immigrant and non-immigrant reasons.

For persons that may only be seeking to enter the United States for a temporary non-immigrant purpose such as to visit, study, or work, their prior history may prevent them from being admitted into the United States. If you have been refused entry to the United States and have been found inadmissible, you might need a waiver.

Removal defense (formerly called “deportation defense”) involves representing and advocating for immigrants facing removal or deportation from the United States.

For many immigrants, the process involves appearing before an immigration judge in immigration court. While most immigrants cannot afford to have an attorney represent them in court, legal representation is sadly the single most important factor in determining whether someone will win—or lose—their case.

Affirmative Asylum

Are you a Mexican looking to apply for asylum in the United States? We can help.

Many people around the world have to flee their countries of birth due to being targeted because of their race, nationality, political opinion, or being a part of a particular group of people.

If you are in the United States, you can apply for protection in the form of an application for affirmative asylum.

Board of Immigration Appeals

Are you a Mexican seeking assistance with your Board of Immigration Appeals case? We can help.

The Board of Immigration Appeals (BIA or Board) is the highest administrative body for interpreting and applying United States immigration laws.

In general, the BIA reviews appeals from certain decisions that Immigration Judges and district directors of the Department of Homeland Security (DHS) issue, ensuring that the immigration laws receive a fair and uniform application. Filing an appeal with the Board of Immigration Appeals (BIA) is a crucial step for many noncitizens facing removal because it is the last opportunity to obtain a favorable decision from the Executive Office for Immigration Review.
