Houston Immigration Attorney Helps Immigrants be Proactive about Their Legal Status
Houston, TX (Law Firm Newswire) October 19, 2011 - Immigrants are frequently worried about deportation, no matter whether they are legally in the U.S. or not. According to a recent Pew Research Center study, more than 70 percent worry about themselves, family members or friends getting kicked out the United States. The best way to make sure that an individual or family’s legal status is upheld is to get a qualified Houston immigration attorney to proactively file for the appropriate visa and green cards and renew them in a timely manner.
“There are many steps to make sure you maintain your legal status,” said Houston immigration lawyer Annie Banerjee. “Being proactive can make all the difference in staying with your children, keeping property, and maintaining your job status.”
It is also critical that the hired attorney and the U.S. Citizenship and Immigration Services agency has a new address on file should an individual move their main residence. Power of attorney documents should be in place in case there is a need to use them. In Texas, a statutory durable power of attorney form can be used to define a person’s wishes should they be detained or removed.
“Reforms are still underway, and believe me, more are needed to keep families together or reunite them in the United States,” said Banerjee. “Losing a parent or spouse because of a filing error or waiting until it is too late is one of the worst things that can happen to a family.”
More than 23 percent of all youth in Texas live in a mixed immigration family, which means that at least one parent is not a full U.S. citizen yet. The Law Offices of Annie Banerjee works with individuals, families, and businesses to accomplish their immigration needs. “The United States should continue ways for honest people to earn their citizenship and retain it,” said Banerjee. “Our rich history of immigrants that made our country better and more competitive should be remembered when critics try to make the processes overly difficult.”
