Lake Elsinore Immigration Lawyer


Looking For An Immigration Lawyer?

Finding an immigration attorney is easy.

Finding the right immigration attorney – for your green card, citizenship, or deportation defense needs – is harder.

Everywhere you look in Lake Elsinore, there are ads for lawyers.  The yellow pages.  Community newspapers.  Freeway billboards.  The internet.

Perhaps you’re overwhelmed by the many choices.

So how can you identify the right immigration attorney for your personal needs and goals?

Well, to begin, selecting the right immigration lawyer is not just about prices or office location.  It’s not just experience.  It’s not just expertise.

It’s about choosing an immigration attorney who has certain characteristics.

A dedication to serving immigrants.

An appreciation for the struggles many immigrants go through – and a desire to keep immigrant families united.

A willingness to challenge unfair immigration laws – and keeping clients from being mistreated.

It’s about selecting the right Lake Elsinore immigration attorney for you and your family.

After Parents Divorce, Can A Step-Child Petition A Step-Parent For Permanent Residence?

“My wife and I recently divorced. We lived in Kansas for several years before moving to California and getting married here. Neither one of us has valid immigration documents. We did not have any children. But she had a son from a previous relationship whom I took care of and raised during our entire seven years together.

He was born in the United States. He has told me that he would still like to sponsor me for a green card as his stepparent. Is this possible, even though his mother and I are now divorced and living apart?”
