Arizona Immigration Lawyers Delivering Comprehensive Counsel

People from around the world are coming to the United States to seek the ultimate dream. Finding a qualified immigration lawyer gives you the best chance to make that dream a reality. At Ayala Law Office, P.C., in Tucson, Arizona, our lawyers are there to help individuals and families manage the requirements of the U.S. immigration system so that they can take advantage of what this country has to offer in obtaining a visa to stay in the U.S. It doesn’t matter if you’re seeking to enter the United States to reunite with a family member who resides here, to be with a family member or a spouse or to escape persecution; our firm will guide you through the proper legal immigration process that applies to your situation. For those who are already in the United States, we also handle naturalization and deportation defense proceedings and we will be there to present the best defense you have if our government is trying to remove you from the United States. With the legal field changing rapidly, our immigration defense lawyers keep up with the latest developments, and we will strengthen your ability to live where you like and obtain the correct visa you need to remain in the U.S.

Knowledgeable Attorneys Helping People Obtain All Types Of Visas

Whether you wish to enter the United States on a temporary or permanent basis, securing the required visa authorization is the first step. Our firm works on all immigration matters involving a full range of immigrant and nonimmigrant visas, including:

  • Family visas — Our firm helps sponsors secure family visas for fiancées, spouses, children, parents and siblings from all different countries. Based on the specific relationship and visa applicant’s homeland, we can advise you about the relevant rules and evidence required to obtain a visa and how long the procedure might take. We also assist clients who are looking to complete an international adoption.
  • Nonimmigrant visas — People with extraordinary ability, religious workers, students and even tourists also need visas to enter the United States lawfully. You can avoid a last-minute crisis by seeking qualified counsel from one of our immigration attorneys.
  • Humanitarian visas — If you or someone you know is being mistreated due to their ethnicity, religion or political affiliation, our dedicated advocates can assist with asylum or refugee petitions and applications to stay removal. Protection also exists for women and children who are being abused by immediate relatives in their homes or their lives. Seeking the assistance of a qualified attorney can mean the difference between having to stay or being removed from the U.S.

The rules set forth by U.S. Citizenship and Immigration Services (USCIS) are definitely confusing, even to attorneys, and no matter what country you’re from. Our experienced attorneys will make things clear and we will make sure that you’re up to date on any changes and that your application is properly supported so that your situation as submitted to USCIS is approved.

Guiding Future Citizens Through The Naturalization Process

For many people seeking to remain in the U.S., the ultimate goal is to achieve permanent residency and then U.S. citizenship. Those who have been lawful permanent residents for at least five years, or if married three years, and who qualify on other grounds must first go through a long naturalization process. At Ayala Law Office, P.C., we will work closely with you from the start of the residency application and approval of the application through to the petition to file for citizenship. We will work with you in explaining the requirements of the citizenship process and we will ensure that the documentation that we submit on your behalf is complete and accurate so that you will have a positive outcome in the application process, meaning approval of your citizenship petition. From there, our firm can guide you through the next steps of the citizenship process, such as helping with the testing and setting up or rescheduling the swearing-in ceremony so that you can be sworn in to be an American citizen.

Providing Strong Defense Against Removal Actions

If you are living in the U.S. and you are having problems after your arrival status – such as you went out of status, or your application or petition that you filed was denied, or if you are having criminal issues – and you have received a Notice to Appear (NTA) to attend a removal hearing, there is no time to waste. Our qualified immigration removal and deportation attorneys will offer you the assertive and comprehensive representation that you need to defend the actions of DHS, and we will assist our clients who are facing deportation so that you receive the best possible outcome, which we hope will be cancellation of the removal process and approval of an application or petition that we file on your behalf. Of course there is no guarantee, but if you are facing an NTS due to an arrest, a documentation problem or a lapsed visa, contact our experienced attorneys to assist you in your immigration defense. Whatever circumstances exist in your case, we will pursue case law and research to assist you in defending yourself against the U.S. government authorities so that you end up with fair treatment and so that you will maximize your chance to avoid forcible removal from this country.
