5 Reasons Why You Need an Immigration Lawyer

If you or a loved one are trying to immigrate to the United States, you've probably realized how frustrating, stressful, and emotional the experience can be. That's why the team of legal professionals at Rozas and Associates has helped immigrants all over the country with their legal issues for over 20 years. We're dedicated to helping our clients get the best results for their situation, though we've found the following five to be the most common.

Detention Center
Detention Centers

If you or a loved one is being detained in an immigration detention center in Louisiana or Mississippi, you need legal help immediately. Once a deportation order is filed, the victim only has 30 days to stop their deportation, meaning there's no time to waste on filing important documents and motions with immigration court.



A representative from Rozas and Associates is in every single detention center in Louisiana and Mississippi every day, and ready to help you file for bond, criminal or humanitarian parole, an I-589 form for asylum, withholding, or CAT, a cancellation of removal (42b) or (42a), Adjustment of Status in Removal Proceedings, and more. We know exactly what to do to help you and your family in this very stressful situation.

Family Visa
Marriage & Family Visas

Whether you're looking to bring your fiance or spouse to the United States from another country on what's known as a K-1, or 90-day, visa, or if your betrothed is already stateside (regardless of documentation status), we can help you with filing paperwork and pursuing your rights in court.



When it comes to family-based immigration, we can also help with the Petition of an Alien Relative (I-130), Petition for Alien Fiance (1-129F), Petition to Remove Conditions on Residence (I-485), and more. If you're trying to reunite your family members in America, call Rozas and Associates.

Asylum lawyer in Baton RougeAsylum

If you're unwilling or unable to return to your home country because you have a well-founded fear of persecution, or will be unsafe, you're seeking asylum, and you can apply for refugee asylum in the United States. In recent years, it's become harder to apply for asylum status in the U.S., making the necessity for a knowledgeable immigration lawyer even stronger.


The experienced immigration attorneys here at Rozas and Associates have the required experience with immigration cases and the passion to help you navigate the bureaucratic and legal process to become protected under refugee status in America.

We can help you fill out the lengthy Form I-589 in English for the Asylum office, and we will help you prepare for your interview in the case of an affirmative asylum. If you end up detained while waiting for your asylum hearing, we can fight on behalf of you or your loved one to get them home pending your hearing.

Citizenship attorney in Baton RougeCitizenship Process

The process to become a United States citizen can take years, and requires multiple steps along the way. Your citizenship journey will also be extremely dependent on your own personal situation and what you need. Naturalization as a permanent resident can take five years, but if you're married to a U.S. citizen, you can fast-track it to three, or by serving with the military. There are also a number of ways your application can be denied, but you can appeal those denials in court.

There's also a comprehensive citizenship exam to study for, and many other considerations when it comes to obtaining citizenship in the United States.
 
The team at Rozas and Associates has helped immigrants apply for naturalization, and worked with them throughout the entire process, for years. We have the know-how and the resources to help you become a naturalized U.S. citizen. Call us today.

Work visa in Baton RougeEmployment Visas

There's the F1 OPT for students, a variety of permanent and temporary worker visas for both skilled and unskilled laborers, and more that you can be eligible for.
