Petition to Remove Conditions with the help of an Immigration Lawyer.
If you filed to became permanent resident (green card holder) based on your marriage to a U.S. citizen your status is “conditional” and will expire after two years. This means that if you do not file a petition to remove conditions on your residence your status will automatically terminate. To avoid this outcome, you will need an immigration attorney to prepare a Petition to Remove Conditions on your behalf.
Achieve Temporary Protected Status
Temporary Protected Status, or “TPS” provides people from certain countries with ongoing armed conflict, environmental disaster, or other extraordinary conditions that make it unsafe to return, with temporary legal status in the United States. TPS is typically designated for only those countries where there is civil war, a natural disaster like a hurricane or earthquake, or similar circumstances. Work with an experienced Immigration Lawyer in Nashville to improve your chances of TPS application approval.
Immigration Lawyer for the Bail Bonding Process
Regardless of your history, you will need an immigration attorney to help with the bail bonding process. If you or a family member has been detained and placed in removal proceedings in immigration court, you might be wondering if and how you will be able to get out of detention and reunite with your family. Immigration court cases can go on for years so typically this is the first and most important priority for detainees or their families.
Parole in Place
If you are serving in the United States military, are a veteran, or are a military spouse, you have probably heard of Parole in Place. Chances are that you have also been able to find very little clear and accurate information on the subject and how it could help you or your spouse. Our government knows that military members and their families make important sacrifices for our country. Parole in Place is just one way our government tries to support these individuals.
T and U Immigrant Visas
The U and T visas were both created to give victims of crime or human trafficking the opportunity to obtain legal status in the United States if they have cooperated with law enforcement to help investigate or prosecute crime. These visas can be a powerful tool to help foreign nationals who may not have any other route to legal status to gain security for themselves and their families. The Cassell Firm’s immigration attorney in Nashville, TN has helped many victims of crime and human trafficking get U and T visa applications approved so that they can move forward to a happier and brighter future.

However simple or complex your case may be, our Nashville immigration lawyer looks forward to helping you navigate this final stage of your journey.
Adjustment of Status (Getting a Green Card)
The term “Adjustment of Status” is just a formal way of saying that you or your family member are applying for a green card. The process to obtain a green card can be long and there are several steps you must take before you apply. There is also a difference in how you apply for a green card when you are in the United States and when you still live in another country. Our green card attorneys in Nashville will help guide you through the process.
When you apply for a visa or green card, the U.S. government will be checking to make sure you are admissible to the United States. Admissibility is related to whether you are allowed, by law, to enter the United States. If you are found “inadmissible” to the United States, you will not be permitted to enter or stay in the country. Characteristics you may have that make you inadmissible are referred to as “grounds for inadmissibility” and include things such as criminal conviction, visa overstays, and past deportations.
