Individuals often face threat of removal of a loved one, lack of work documentation, help in applying for citizenship, or petitioning for a spouse, fiancé, child, parent, or sibling. Our business clients seek to sponsor a work visa or permanent residence for critical employees, to establish a business in the United States and create jobs for US workers, or are individuals with exceptional and extraordinary abilities whose work is in the national interest of the United States. We also support business clients by conducting I-9 employment eligibility verification compliance audits and assist with developing processes for the implementation of new regulations issued by various U.S. government agencies affecting immigration practices, including E-verify procedures.

Deferred Action is based on an exercise of prosecutorial discretion,which provides no guarantees of renewal, and no path to citizenship. Even if an applicant meets all the requirements, there is no guarantee that the applicant will be granted Deferred Action because it is based on discretion. In case of denial, there is only supervisory review, and no appellate rights or other safeguards. Even if the Deferred Action is granted, this grant may be withdrawn or not renewed at any time. In addition, as a result of the application, immigration and Customs Enforcement will have all the information necessary to initiate removal proceedings against the applicant if the policy is changed.
