Starting an Immigration Attorney Business
Do you have a law practice but feel that you're not earning what you should be? Are you pouring all your effort but feel that you're doing things the wrong way? Are you putting in too much time but getting too little in return?
Here’s a thought, why not have yourself certified in immigration law by your State’s Board of Legal Specialization? In so doing, you can venture into immigration law.
Why immigration law?
The business of immigration law is a guaranteed non-bust. We all know that the number of foreign nationals staying in the U.S. have ballooned through the years. Similarly, the number of those wishing to migrate to the States has increased tenfold. The heightened security measures relevant to immigration policies have induced more and more to seek professional counsel. Not only that, more and more employers, corporations, and businesses today are seeking the assistance of lawyers in dealing with immigration worksite compliance. Given this scenario, if you veer your practice towards immigration law, you will no longer have to worry about client scarcity ever again.
- Typically, law offices concentrating on immigration law handle:
Employment Immigration ConcernsFor the most part, your task is to develop legal strategies to help your clients verify and meet employment immigration compliance laws. Your focus will most likely be on employment eligibility issues, verification of employees, employment law immigration concerns, and labor certification issues. Businesses and corporations are more cautious now about their non-immigrant employees. Never before has observance of worksite compliance laws been this essential for employers.
In addition, legal representation is called for in cases of criminal or civil government investigations, in particular, ICE investigation under Homeland Security. Plus, I-9 internal audit, compliance, and procedure review.
Naturalization and Citizenship.You are expected to help alien residents become naturalized United States citizens. This involves the proper and appropriate filing of the N-400 application for naturalization and other requisite naturalization papers. Typically, a foreigner can apply for U.S. citizenship if he or she has been a permanent resident of the U.S. for not less than five years or has been married to a U.S. citizen for not les than three years.
Education Immigration ConcernsYour task is to represent educational institutions in providing plans for immigration compliance and verification. You may be asked to develop a system through which the institution can monitor documentation and ensure that the working papers of professors and teachers are legitimate and that they are authorized to teach or conduct research work in the U.S. Likewise, you may also be tasked to put a system in place to verify if foreign students visas and papers are in order.
Family Immigration ConcernsThere are many factors to consider in petitioning a family member’s entry to the U.S. There’s the sponsor’s citizenship status, the familiar relationship between the former and the latter, etcetera. Needless to say, this is a lengthy and tedious process. Your job is to provide comprehensive legal assistance to your client and help him or her deal with these intricate requirements to enable his or her family member/s gain entry to the U.S.
