    I agree with my colleagues. The attorney fees are different based on the market place, experience of the attorney, and the attorney's philosophy as to what to charge. It is advisable to shop around and pick an attorney whom you are comfortable working with over the long term.

    The reality is that under the Pandilla v. Kentucky decision any criminal defense attorney has to be weary of the immigration consequences of any criminal adjudication. You have to qualify for the services of the public defender and you will be screened at the court if you appear and ask for the help of a PD. I have been both a PD and a private criminal attorney and can remember when Florida had the PD cycle for private attorneys to assist. Most PD offices throughout Florida have attorneys who...

    I agree with my colleagues. Immigration law treats criminal adjudications differently from criminal law. You would be best advised to receive a legal option from an experienced immigration attorney who can examine the totality of your criminal and immigration history. be careful of relying on advise from a notario who will make promises and likely just steal your money.

    Usually aliens who enter the US under the visa waiver program are not able to adjust status based on that form of entry. One exception is that of an immediate relative who enters under the INA S 217 visa waiver. I agree with my colleague that you should consult with an experienced immigration attorney who can examine the facts of your case and provide you with a legal opinion as to what immigration benefits you qualify for under existing law. good luck.

    To secure a work permit, you need to have an enabling status or application in process. It appears USCIS wants the I-485 receipt based on the box checked in the I-765 application

    I am quoting from my asylum guide on AVVO: http://www.avvo.com/legal-guides/ugc/immigration-the-asylum-interview-and-hearing An alien present in the United States can request asylum at any time to an inspection officer or any other INS official.
