Packing your things and moving to a whole new country can be a stressful task in and of itself.

Our legal experience has taught us everything there is to know about immigration laws and the associated procedures. With our attorneys, you will be in good hands.
What Does An Immigration Attorney Do?
When hearing the term immigration attorney, many people assume they simply help individuals with US citizenship and immigration services. This is true; however, immigration law firms can assist with much more. To give you a better idea of what an immigration lawyer can do for you, here are some common immigration services offered:
Getting a Green Card
A green card is the most common way to become a permanent resident in North Carolina as it provides lawful permanent resident (LPR) status to a foreign national for a specific amount of time. However, there are a lot of specific eligibility requirements that must be met in order to qualify for one. An immigration lawyer will not only help you through the process, but they will make sure that you qualify and properly apply for your green card, making your transition smoother.
If you, a loved one, or someone you know are facing deportation, it is critical to acquire legal representation as soon as possible. Deportation, which is a big word for removal, can be one of the scariest challenges an immigrant may have to face. Having an immigration law attorney by your side in the courtroom will significantly increase your success rate while dramatically decreasing your stress and anxiety levels throughout the process.
Applying For Asylum
The application for asylum is extremely complicated and can take months or years to complete. In order to qualify for asylum, you must be able to prove that there is a credible threat of violence, imprisonment, or harm when you return to your home country. Having a lawyer on retainer will prevent small, preventable errors from occurring, which would in turn slow down the process. Additionally, a lawyer can provide emotional support and legal advice as well as protect your rights to ensure you receive a fair interview process. Have an attorney that you can consider a friend by your side when you hire Ms. Neelam Bhardwaj.
Receiving an H-1B Visa
If you are an employer, you may be in need of an H-1B Visa, also known as work visas, in order to hire workers from out of the country. As an immigration law attorney, Ms. Bhardwaj has worked with businesses of all sizes – from small, Greensboro local businesses to large corporations as well as educational institutions. With expert knowledge and precision, she will walk you through the process and ensure all forms and documentation are presented correctly to avoid any unwanted delays or denials so you can get your new employee to work as soon as possible. Please note, H-1B visas are not given for permanent residency. The immigrant visa will provide temporary protected status.
Becoming A Naturalized Citizen
For most foreign nationals, their end-game goal is to become a naturalized citizen of the United States. As with most immigration processes, the path to citizenship and naturalization is a long and complicated one. Having gone through the process herself, attorney Bhardwaj can provide you with the insights and expertise needed to successfully earn your citizenship. Though the process maybe longer or shorter, it can usually average between 6 months to over a year before you are able to take your Oath of Allegiance. However, with an attorney who knows the process like she knows the back of her hand by your side throughout the entire process (including your citizenship test and consular processing), you can achieve one of the biggest accomplishments of your life sooner rather than later.
If you have found yourself in the unfortunate position of a loved one being detained, one of the most important things to know is they will have limited access to legal counsel. However, hope is not lost! With the assistance of our experienced and knowledgeable immigration attorney we can help find them in the detention system, then begin to represent them and put together an action plan. In addition, a lawyer will protect your rights as well as ensure you receive a fair judgment. If you worry that detainment is a possibility, don’t wait until it happens! Contact us today to get a plan together so that if the event were to occur, you can be prepared and confident that you will have a successful outcome.
