Boston Immigration Lawyer
Many people who come to the United States find our immigration laws and system to be incredibly complex and frustrating. Immigration laws can be contradictory or unclear, and in recent years, the executive branch has introduced numerous executive orders and regulatory interpretations that have fundamentally changed how many aspects of the immigration system work. Some of these orders have been upheld by the courts, while others have been struck down. Still others are still pending in the courts, leaving their current applicability unclear.
Trying to navigate the immigration system on your own can be an incredibly complicated and time-consuming process. Getting even one small detail wrong can result in your application being delayed or denied, or even in your immigration status being revoked.

Common Types of Immigration Cases Our Boston Immigration Attorneys Handle
Some of the immigration matters our law firm commonly handles include:
Frequently Asked Questions
What is DACA?
DACA is a program that was established by executive order in 2012 under which an immigrant without lawful status who came to the U.S. as a child and who meets other criteria may have any removal actions deferred for a renewable period of up to two years. Those who have DACA status are also granted work authorization in the U.S.
What is a green card?
A green card refers to lawful permanent residency status. An immigrant who is a lawful permanent resident may, subject to certain requirements, continue to live and work in the United States for the rest of their lives, provided they maintain lawful residence in the U.S. However, breaking the law can result in deportation.
What is a naturalized citizen?
A naturalized citizen is an individual who was born without U.S. citizenship who has petitioned to receive citizenship. Citizenship is granted after a lawful immigrant meets residency requirements in the U.S. and establishes his or her good moral character, ability to read/write/speak English, and other requirements.
