Family Immigration/Adjustment of Status

Balaban Law Group handles all aspects of family immigration. These opportunities are based upon a qualifying relationship with a United States citizen or permanent resident. Both United States citizens and permanent residents have the ability to file a petition for members of their immediate family, depending upon the individual relationship. This petition, based upon a qualifying relationship can be made either in the United States, or in your home country at a United States embassy or consulate. We enable family unification by providing opportunities such as bringing parents, siblings or elder children into the United States, fiancé visas, marriage to a United States citizen, adjustment of status, removing conditions on a marriage-based “green card” and naturalization.


Criminal Consequences

If you are not a United States citizen and have been charged with a crime, you should not only carefully consider a qualified criminal defense lawyer, but also a competent immigration attorney. Balaban Law Group assesses the immigration consequences of criminal activity. Deportation may result to those who plead guilty or found guilty of specific crimes. The importance of accurate legal advice has never been more important for a non-citizen, criminal activity may have a substantial negative effect on the foreign national’s ability to enter into or remain in the United States. It could also severely impact the availability of discretionary forms of relief from deportation and or removal and the ability to become a Citizen of United States.
