Fighting to Keep Families Together

The United States has favorable policies of allowing families to remain together on U.S. soil when a member of the family is a U.S. citizen or legal resident. Nonetheless, U.S. immigration laws are highly stringent. When certain requirements are not met, families can be torn apart as one or more members are forced to either stay in or return to their native land.

Our attorneys fight hard keep families intact. We understand how the system works and can develop key strategies to help non-citizens remain lawfully in the U.S.  We represent and advise individuals and families in the following areas of immigration:

Family-Based Immigration 

Immediate relatives, including parents, spouses, fiancés, and children, and other close family members of U.S. citizens are generally able to immigrate to the United States through sponsorship. Yet even under these circumstances, the process for entering the country isn’t necessarily easy.   We can help obtain permanent resident status (commonly known as a green card) for family members, whether they are currently in the U.S. or abroad.

Because of our extensive knowledge of the United States Citizenship and Immigration Services requirements and procedures, we can advise you on the fastest route to getting your loved one in the country legally and prevent you from making mistakes that can lengthen the process.

Removal & Deportation Defense

The attorneys of Holevoet & Hanna, are dedicated to preventing the unjust removal of foreign nationals from the U.S., and may be able to help you or your loved one secure legal residency.   We will work together with you to develop a strong defense strategy that may include:

• Cancellation or Stays of Removal

• Adjustment of status through a qualifying family member

• Waivers of Inadmissibility

• Deferred Action for Childhood Arrivals

  • Asylum
  • Requests for Prosecutorial Discretion

We also advise criminal defense attorneys on the impact of criminal convictions on immigration status and options.

Employment-Based Immigration

Foreign students, professionals and other workers often to come to the U.S. to further their studies and careers and end up wanting to stay permanently.  Our immigration attorneys can help put you on the path to permanent residency in the U.S. through employment-based immigration.

We can help with each step of the application process for an employment-based visa. We’ll advise you on how to build a resume that spotlights visa criteria and ensure that every government requirement is adequately met and demonstrated. Simultaneously, we can arrange for the immigration of a spouse or child.
