Immigration Lawyer - New Hanover, Brunswick, and Pender Counties
Granade Law assists clients in obtaining Immigrant and Non-Immigrant Visas. We also represent clients in Removal Proceedings.
Focusing on family-based immigration cases, we assist United States citizens and legal permanent residents obtain green cards or visas for their spouses, fiancés, children, parents, or siblings. We also assist green card holders who are ready to become United States citizens with the Naturalization process.
Immigration is an extraordinarily complex field. Cases must be analyzed from a number of angles. Factors such as prior criminal convictions and entry dates can affect the ultimate success of a case.
Granade Law has extensive experience in strategies for obtaining U Nonimmigrant Status (U-Visas) for immigrant victims of crime. This is a newer area of immigration law, which retroactively provides options to immigrants, who were previously unable to legalize.
Victims of violent crime who report the criminal activity and who are helpful in the investigation and/or prosecution of the criminal activity may be eligible for a U-Visa, which allows immigrant victims to live legally in the United States for four years. Immigrant victims can apply to become legal permanent residents after having a U-Visa for three years. U-Visas give immigrant victims permission to work in the United States. Derivative U status is available for some immigrant victim family members.
If your loved one has been detained by Immigration and Customs Enforcement (ICE) or placed into removal proceedings, contact us. We understand that this event can be one of the most frightening experiences for an immigrant family. We can evaluate their options for cancelation of removal and represent them before the Immigration Court for Bond Hearings and Master Calendar Hearings.
