Kansas City, MO (PressExposure) March 18, 2011 -- Law makers in Arizona have come up with new immigration restrictions barring illegal immigrants from driving in the state, enrolling in schools, and the issuance of certificates for their children that states that the State of Arizona does not regard them as citizens. With so many reforms it's almost impossible for an average person to understand the complex immigration procedures, and obtain citizenship.
"There are several ways to enter the country. You can either apply for naturalization or apply for a non immigrant visa. You could either apply for a student work visa, a tourist visa, a cultural exchange visa or a temporary work visa like H-1B visa or L1 Visa.
"Although you aren't required to seek help when applying for a non immigration visa or applying to obtain citizenship, immigration lawyers help to sort out the necessary paper work before applying. Even if you are outside of the country, you could ask immigration attorneys to prepare paperwork for you and deal with the follow up communication with immigration authorities," says Mr. Leon Versfeld, of Versfeld and Hugo, an attorney firm that specializes in immigration law.
"Immigration law is complex, and a seemingly unimportant and uncomplicated task may seem frightening without proper guidance. Many a times, immigration authorities reject applications for the most trivial reasons and reapplying for the same can be quite a headache. But immigration attorneys can help and give explanations to immigration authorities," adds, Mr. Leon Versfeld. His law firm participates in several immigration law clinics to help people understand complex procedures.
There are immigration officers to help people general matters like the process of application, and the fee for the same. Yet, these officers are not experts in immigration law and the USCIS itself does not take responsibility for advice given by these officers. Thousands of applications are received every day, and the USCIS is likely to be apathetic when viewing improperly completed applications.
If you are serious about moving to the United States, make sure that you get help with immigration procedures from an immigration law clinic rather than depend on random advice.
