Other Immigration Services
There are many other immigration benefits an immigrant may want or need to apply for, depending on their individual circumstances and eligibility. Certain requirements must be met in order to qualify for each immigration benefit, which depends on your individual situation. We represent clients in many other immigration benefits.
A work permit, or Employment Authorization Document (EAD), is legal permission from the U.S. government to work in the United States. Some immigrants may be eligible for work authorization. We can help apply for or renew a work permit.
A travel document is legal permission from the U.S. government to re-enter into the United States. Some immigrants may need to apply for re-entry authorization. We can help apply for or renew travel documents, including re-entry permits, advanced parole, or an asylee travel document.
Extension of Status
An extension of status is legal permission from the U.S. government to remain in the United States for a specified period of time after the expiration of a visa. Some nonimmigrants may need to extend their status in the United States. We can help apply to extend a current visa.
Change of Status
A change of status is legal permission from the U.S. government to remain in the United States for a specified period of time on a different visa without having to restart the visa application process. (A common example is changing from a visitor visa to a student visa.) Some nonimmigrants may need to change their status in the United States. We can help apply to change a visa from one status to another.
Temporary Protected Status
Temporary Protected Status (TPS) is a form of immigration relief for people from certain countries where there are issues like a civil war, environmental disaster, or other extraordinary circumstances. Some immigrants may be eligible for TPS. We can help apply for or renew Temporary Protected Status.
Deferred Action for Childhood Arrivals
Deferred Action for Childhood Arrivals (DACA) is a form of immigration relief for immigrants who came to the United States as children. Some immigrants may be eligible to apply for or renew DACA status. We can help apply for or renew Deferred Action for Childhood Arrivals status.
Freedom of Information Act Request
A Freedom of Information Act (FOIA) request is a request for one’s own records with the U.S. government. Some immigrants may have records with various United States government agencies that they wish to see. We can help obtain records from the Department of Homeland Security (DHS), the Federal Bureau of Investigation (FBI), the Executive Office for Immigration Review (EOIR), and other agencies with a FOIA request.
A file review is an in-depth review of an immigrant’s previous file(s) to evaluate their case. Some immigrants may require a file review before Attorney Shapiro can make any recommendations. We can review your records and determine a course of action.
