Immigration law is complicated, even for natural-born US citizens. An experienced immigration lawyer serves as your advocate and supporter as you navigate the complexities of the American legal system.
What is Immigration Law?
Immigration law includes any regulations, statutes, or legal precedents related to an immigrant entering the United States of America. These laws govern who is legally allowed to enter the country, how long they can stay, and what steps they must take for naturalization if they desire to become US citizens.
Legal immigration requires a lot of paperwork and decisions. Our immigration attorneys in Austin, Texas know how to navigate all of the permits, regulations, and requirements. An experienced immigration lawyer can help you complete the long, difficult paperwork without any mistakes that may harm your application or prevent your legal stay in America.
How Much Does An Immigration Lawyer Cost in Texas?
The cost of hiring an immigration lawyer typically ranges from a few hundred dollars to several thousand dollars, depending on the exact circumstances of your case.
While many people hesitate to seek legal advice due to financial concerns, the cost of not speaking with an experienced immigration lawyer could be much higher, including the inability to obtain legal employment, deportation, or family separation.
Alex R. Hernandez’s father immigrated from Mexico, and the Hernandez family has spent decades serving in the American legal system. We fight for the fair treatment of every client in the US immigration system, and we offer payment plans for those who need them. Contact us to discuss the specifics of your case.
