Deportation defense requires a specialized knowledge of immigration law, statutes, regulations and policies. Besides deportation prevention, we also seek immigration bonds for clients detained by Immigration and Customs Enforcement (ICE).
Criminal Defense and Immigration
Pursuant to Federal Immigration Law, certain crimes subject immigrants to automatic deportation. Additionally, if you have a criminal history, it can affect your immigration status. We will attempt to resolve your criminal case without compromising your immigration status. Even if you have resolved your criminal case, you should still speak to an attorney to ensure your immigration status for the future.
Family Law & Immigration
We assist with family law issues of all types, from dissolution of marriages to amending birth certificates and name changes.
At Clark & Clark, we help immigrants with various family law matters. Some family law matters can affect your immigration status; thus, it is important to work with an attorney who understands both.
We represent clients with a broad range of family law issues, including:
Dissolution of Marriages
Obtaining and Amending Birth Certificates
Workers’ Compensation & Personal Injury of Undocumented Workers
Even as an undocumented worker, you have the same rights as natural-born Americans. If you have been injured at work or in an automobile accident, we can pursue personal injury recovery or workers’ compensation for you too.
At Clark & Clark Law, we seek justice for all clients. We will help you get needed medical attention necessary to make a full physical recovery. Also, we will fight for compensation to pay your medical bills and cover lost wages. We have doctors and expert witnesses to build a strong case on your behalf.
I – 601 Waiver Program
If you are married to a non – U.S. citizen, recent changes in the law make it possible for your spouse to get a green card without having to wait abroad.
In the past, undocumented persons who married United States citizens had to return to their native countries and wait for visa approval. Now, people married to U.S. citizens can file an I-601 waiver, which can shorten the visa approval process. At Clark & Clark, we help couples secure their legal status through the I – 601 waiver program.
By filing an I – 601 waiver, it is possible to obtain a visa in a few weeks, as opposed to months or years. We can help you understand the requirements to apply for an I – 601 waiver.
Although you may have a green card, citizenship affords you additional benefits. Green cards are often revoked for minor infractions. As a naturalized citizen, you have the right to vote and a better chance at sponsoring citizenship petitions for your family members.
Based on our decades of experience, we can navigate your path to citizenship to ensure the best possible outcome.
