The United States has always been a nation that welcomes immigrants. It’s no wonder it is colloquially referred to as the land of opportunities. However, it is not uncommon to rub shoulders with the U.S. immigration authorities due to issues revolving around paperwork, visa applications, and other such matters.
The federal government has made it clear that they are committed to making life easier for foreign nationals who wish to live in the country. That said, there are certain things you need to know about your rights when dealing with the US immigration system.
The first thing you should do if you have an issue with the immigration authorities is to seek legal advice from an experienced immigration lawyer. This will help you understand what you can expect from the process and how best to deal with it. At Moffitt Law, LLC, we are a team of results-driven Georgia immigration lawyers committed to helping those facing immigration issues like deportation, removal, adjustment of status, waiver, naturalization, and other concerns.
We provide free consultations to our clients to help them better understand their options and make informed decisions. And if necessary, we do not hesitate to fight for our clients at the immigration court level or before the Board of Immigration Appeals.

Our Step-By-Step Approach to Resolving Georgia Immigration Matters
When you contact us for help with your immigration problem, we start by listening to your situation and explaining your options. Then we develop a plan based on your specific circumstances. We always keep you fully informed throughout the entire process.
Here’s how we handle each step of your case:
Step 1 – Free Consultation
To determine whether you qualify for any relief under the law, we need to know precisely your situation. That’s why we conduct a thorough consultation to discuss your background, goals, and current status. During this meeting, we will review your documents and answer your questions.
Step 2 – Strategy Development
Once you have received a clear picture of your situation, we begin developing a strategy for resolving your case. We will analyze your strengths and weaknesses and the potential risks of pursuing your case. We will also consider the resources available to you and the likelihood of success. Based on these factors, we will recommend the most appropriate course of action.
Step 3 – Case Preparation
Once we have determined our recommended strategy, it is time to prepare your case. We will gather all documentation and submit them to USCIS or ICE. Additionally, we will file all required forms and papers with the court(s) and draft pleadings plus other legal documents. Finally, we will meet with you to go over your case and answer questions.
Step 4 – Court Appearances
At some point during the case, you may be called upon to appear before an immigration judge. If so, we will attend the hearing along with you. We will advise you on the procedure and ensure that you understand your rights. We will also represent you in court when necessary.
Step 5 – Settlement Negotiations
If settlement negotiations are possible, we will participate in those discussions. We will negotiate with the opposing party to reach a mutually acceptable resolution. However, we do not participate in settlement discussions unless there is a reasonable chance of settling the case.
Step 6 – Finalization
We will pursue your claim through trial if no settlement can be reached. We will provide updates throughout the proceedings. When the matter has been resolved, we will finalize your case and close your file.

Georgia Immigration Law Frequently Asked Questions
What Does “Legal Permanent Resident” Mean?
A Legal Permanent Resident (LPR) is someone who has been granted permanent residence status in the U.S. An LPR can live permanently in the U.S., work here, open bank accounts, buy property, get married, adopt children, and other liberties. The person must have lived in the U.S. continuously since being admitted.
How Do I Get My Green Card?
To apply for a green card, you must first obtain/apply for a visa from the Department of State. Once you receive your visa, you can apply for a green card at a U.S. consulate abroad. After receiving approval, you can return to the U.S. and request your green card from the nearest U.S. embassy or consulate.
Can I Work While Waiting For A Green Card?
Yes! You can legally work while waiting for your green card application to be approved. However, you cannot work without authorization from the government.
