Family-Based Immigration

Immigration, for many, is not a solo journey. Most want to bring their families with them. If they already hold a green card in the United States, most people typically want to reunite their families by helping them through the immigration process.

Unfortunately, changes in politics can create doubts for immigrants — doubts that they will have success bringing family members after securing a visa, doubts of being reunited with loved ones and even doubts that they will be able to stay in the country they now call home.

At Salam & Associates, PC, we know that future changes to immigration laws in our country may create challenging situations for immigrant families in Texas and New Mexico. Everything from visa restrictions to a repeal of Deferred Action for Childhood Arrivals (DACA) could put thousands of families in troubling legal situations, leaving them in desperate need of someone to turn to.

We want you to know that you can always turn to Salam & Associates, PC, for help in your time of need. Contact us. We have offices in Richardson and are available (by appointment only) in Las Cruces.

We Have More Than a Decade of Experience in Immigration Law

When you retain our services, you will work closely with attorney Ana F. Olivares, who will use 10 years of experience in immigration law to answer all of your questions concerning your immigration status.

She has experience handling cases involving a variety of immigration documents and has the skill to answer questions concerning:

• Entry visas for visits and extended stays such as for child care after an accident or injury

• Immediate family visas and green cards for parents, spouses, children and siblings

• K1 visas for fiancé(e)s

• Hardship waivers in cases of domestic violence or barred re-entries

We Handle DACA Cases

In 2012, President Obama extended protection from deportation to certain undocumented young people through an executive order called Deferred Action for Childhood Arrivals, or DACA. This program is active and available to those who qualify, both for initial applicants and renewals.

Unfortunately, DACA can be repealed at any time. This creates huge concerns for parents and children alike because it raises the stakes for deportation and the fear of being separated from one's home and family.

At Salam & Associates, PC, our lawyers know that the years and decades to come will be filled with rumors and misinformation about immigration laws in the U.S., which is why we want to be a beacon of light for immigrant families. We are here to tell you the reality of the situation and to help you understand your rights as well as the correct steps to take to protect them and stay in this country.
