Types of Immigration Cases Our Orange City Attorneys Handle
Regardless of your immigration needs, you will likely face a complex legal system that our attorneys can help you navigate. Our lawyers are familiar with the ever-changing U.S. immigration laws, and we can help with multiple case types.
Permanent Residency (Green Card)
If you are currently in the United States, you may pursue an adjustment of status to obtain permanent residency. You may be eligible based on employment, family petition, and more.
If you are not currently in the United States, you may pursue permanent residency via employment, family petition, or other categories to obtain an immigrant visa and green card.
Our lawyers can help you with immigration cases involving many types of immigrant visas, including:
- Family visas (I visas, K visas, CR visas, F visas)
- Employment visas such as EB visas
U.S. citizens may sponsor family members who wish to live in the country. Immediate relative visas are available for spouses, children, and parents, whereas family preference visas may be available for more distant relatives.
Permanent residents may petition for a visa for their spouse or unmarried children.
Nonimmigrant and immigrant visas provide authorization to work in the United States. Temporary work visas allow work for a fixed time, while permanent employment visas provide residency.
Some of the nonimmigrant visas we can help you with include the following:
- Exchange visas (J visas)
- Victims of human trafficking (T visas)
- Victims of criminal activity (U visas)
- Foreign national with extraordinary ability (O visas)
- Visitor for medical treatment (B visas)
There are many more types of nonimmigrant visas. Our lawyers can help if you are seeking a visa or have another immigration-related matter.
U.S. permanent residents may pursue citizenship in a process known as naturalization. Qualification for naturalization depends on several factors, so speak with a lawyer at our firm who can help with your case.
The federal criminal offense of illegal reentry, as defined by 8 U.S.C. 1326, happens when an individual:
- Was denied admission, deported, excluded, or removed.
- Departed the U.S. while an order of deportation, exclusion, or removal is in effect.
- Attempts to enter, enters, or is already living in the United States.
If you are facing charges of illegal reentry, our accomplished immigration lawyers can provide legal assistance. For example, we can guide you through the complex legal system and explain the potential consequences of a conviction.
Our legal team will carefully evaluate the case’s circumstances and determine if mitigating factors apply. We will build a strong defense strategy and protect your rights throughout the proceedings.
Asylum Seekers and Refugees
Sometimes immigration is necessary to escape a dangerous situation. For instance, if you faced danger in your home country and fled to the United States, you could be considered an asylum seeker and become a refugee.
Achieving legal refuge can be long and complicated, but our lawyers can help you navigate the immigration system.

Fighting Denied Citizenship Cases
If the United States Citizenship and Immigration Services (USCIS) rejects a citizenship application, they will notify you through a Notice of Denial which will explain their decision.
If you accept their decision, you can file a new application; however, if you disagree, you can request an official hearing regarding the denial. USCIS hearings are legal proceedings conducted by officers following immigration law and regulations to determine the outcome of an immigration case.
Our experienced immigration lawyers will help you weigh your options so you can make the best decision for you and your family.
Reasons for Denying Citizenship
Applying for citizenship can be a long and involved process, so it’s important to understand why such an application might be denied. Common reasons for denied green card applications include:
- Criminal history
- Immigration law violations
- Government error
- Health problems
- Failure to cooperate
These factors and others will be considered when determining whether a green card application is successful.
If you decide to pursue a hearing, you and the relevant witnesses can present evidence and testimony supporting your case. The USCIS officer will then review the evidence and decide based on the facts presented.
Legal representation during USCIS hearings helps ensure that your rights are protected, and that you have the best possible chance of a successful outcome.

Fighting Deportation Cases
Another reason to hire an immigration lawyer is if you or a family member is confronted with deportation. Deportation can be incredibly stressful as you face an uncertain future. What’s more, the process can be complex.
If you are in removal proceedings, contact our Volusia County immigration lawyers immediately. We can help you fight deportation to remain in the United States.
Reasons for Deportation Orders
In immigration law, a deportation order is a legal directive that requires an individual to leave the United States and return to their country of origin. Possible reasons for a deportation order include the following:
- Being convicted of a crime, including those involving weapons, drugs, fraud, or certain other criminal offenses
- Overstaying a nonimmigrant visa
- Failing to comply with visa rules
- Gaining illegal entry into the United States
A deportation order can have serious consequences for individuals and their families; therefore, you shouldn’t hesitate to seek advice and assistance from an immigration lawyer if facing deportation.
Fighting a Deportation Order
Our lawyers will review your deportation case and build a legal strategy to help you fight to stay in the United States. Strategies we may use include:
- Applying for asylum if you face danger by returning to your home country
- Establishing your entitlement to remain in the U.S.
- Filing for waivers for specific non-violent criminal offenses
- Establishing that your loved ones would experience hardship due to your absence
