Hundreds of thousands of immigrants come to the United States every year attempting to establish a prosperous life on American soil. They meet the challenge of living in a country with free enterprise, democracy, and freedom for all. The old American saying, “A man who represents himself has a fool for a lawyer and a fool for a client.” This saying applies to immigration law, just like any other area of law. US immigration law is one of the most politically divisive areas of the legal system. Therefore, it is not surprising that it is incredibly complex and constantly changing.

At Ginny Walia Law Offices, we understand that immigration law is always changing, and that each client requires personalized legal service. We help individuals and families, making the immigration process as simple as possible.

Immigration law is federal and applies equally to all states. US immigration law establishes who is an alien, resident, or citizen of the United States of America. Immigration law defines an immigrant as an individual who is permitted to reside permanently in the United States. An individual can become a citizen of the United States through having been born in the United States or through naturalization. Individuals seeking permanent residency in the United States must apply for permanent or temporary residency.
