Oakland, CA – Besides being surrounded by controversy, the US immigration system is complex and often confusing to immigrants. Immigration and border patrol officers have been known to be harsh, making it hard for individuals to resolve any legal issues without legal representation from an experienced lawyer. Landerholm Immigration, A.P.C. understands the problems that arise with immigration matters and is dedicated to helping immigrants get results.
The law firm comprises a team of immigration lawyers who leverage their in-depth knowledge of the law and years of experience in the industry to provide the advocacy their clients deserve. The majority of the team members are immigrants and have first-hand experience with the facets of immigration law. This, together with their passion for service, informs their commitment to helping clients navigate each stage of the immigration process.
According to US immigration law, an individual must have a well-founded fear of persecution to seek asylum. The Oakland immigration lawyer helps immigrants seek religious asylum, convention against torture, asylum based on race, asylum based on nationality, gender-based asylum, political opinion asylum, particular social group asylum, defensive asylum, and humanitarian asylum. Recognizing that asylum is a risky area of the law, Landerholm Immigration, A.P.C. educates clients on its pros/cons, qualifications, legal repercussions, and statutes of limitations.
The immigration attorneys also fight deportation cases by asking US Immigration and Customs Enforcement (ICE) to parole a client into the country without paying a bond or grant a bond to secure a release at their discretion/under the Intensive Supervision of Aliens Program (ISAP). Additionally, they use other common deportation defenses such as the DACA/DREAM act, Uvisas, contested hearings, motions, immigration appeals, marriage-based adjustment of status, and many more. When it comes to immigration detention and bond, Landerholm Immigration, A.P.C., requests a hearing from an immigration judge. During a proceeding, the judge asks relevant questions and allows an individual to give testimony before allowing them to return home to continue with their immigration court proceedings.
The most common method the US immigration system provides for families to be together is by issuing a green card, a document that signifies the permanent resident status of a person who’s not a US citizen. With a green card, an individual can hold a job, acquire a driver’s license, or enjoy additional benefits of being a permanent resident. Landerholm Immigration, A.P.C. helps clients understand the process of filing family-based petitions for a green card for a parent, spouse, child, sibling, fiancee, or loved ones. The attorneys also help clients file form I-751 to remove conditions from green cards when necessary.
