Frequently asked questions about immigration

Everything you need to know about your immigration process. We solve your doubts.

How difficult is the immigration process?

As many can attest, the U.S. immigration process is extremely complex, if not the most complex in the law. U.S. Citizenship and Immigration Services officials estimate that 67 percent of applications and appeals from those without an attorney are rejected.

Mistakes in paperwork are common, and interview nerves can work against you if you don’t know what you’re up against beforehand. Hiring an attorney for your case is imperative and can bring you great benefits.

What is a visa? What types are available?
A visa is a type of legal documentation that grants an immigrant the ability to stay or work legally in the United States. There are many types of visas available, including student visa, work visa, fiancé visa, family visa, employment visa and immigrant and non-immigrant visas. Speaking with an attorney as soon as possible will allow you to learn about your options and the visa that best suits your specific case.
What is the difference between an immigrant petition and a nonimmigrant petition?

An immigrant petition is a filing to obtain lawful permanent residence in the United States, while a nonimmigrant petition is a filing to obtain temporary status in the United States.

What types of immigration cases do you accept?
At Urbina Law, we are equipped with a team prepared to take on any type of immigration-related case, including lawful permanent residency (green cards, through family-based petitions), naturalization applications, asylum or temporary visas, and any matter in Immigration Court (deportation defense, bond hearings, etc.).
What is the price of evaluating my case?

The Urbina Law Firm does not charge for the evaluation of your case. You will start paying after you tell us about your case, receive our budget, and choose our assistance services.

How much would it cost me to hire an immigration attorney to help me with my case?

Each immigration case requires a different estimate and fee. After analyzing your case, we will provide you with an estimate. However, the price will vary depending on the costs of the paperwork at immigration offices, stamps and forms, as well as the attorney’s fees.

Is it possible to hire a Spanish-speaking lawyer in the USA?

Yes, absolutely. As proud members of the Latino immigrant community in the United States, we maintain our native language, Spanish, and we deal with the language of your choice.

Do you accept cases outside the state of Georgia?

Yes, we work with clients in all 50 states. Immigration law is a matter of federal law, not state law. Any immigration attorney in any state may practice immigration law in any other state in the United States.

Do I need to come to the physical office or do you handle cases remotely?

At Urbina Law, we strive to provide the greatest ease and availability for our case evaluations. This is why we offer virtual distance communication. In addition, we facilitate communication by email or mail so that our clients can send us their supporting documents in the easiest way.
