Complex Immigration Cases in San Jose

Experienced in Tackling Challenging Immigration Cases

There are areas of immigration law where hopes for success hinge on not just having a lawyer’s representation but on having a lawyer with considerable experience and the passion to win. Terkiana, Inc., Immigration Attorneys is a firm steeped in the challenges of immigration matters. Our San Jose immigration lawyer, Jay Terkiana, is an immigrant himself and had to fight his way through the system to gain permanent residency. So, our experience is from both the inside and the outside, and having been there ourselves, we bring passion and dedication to our clients. No matter how complex the case may be, we can handle it.

Here are some of the complicated areas of immigration law we take up for our clients:

  • VAWA (Violence Against Women Act) cases. If you (or a member of your family) have been a victim of abuse from a U.S. citizen or a permanent resident, it may be possible to cancel deportation proceedings against you. To make a case using VAWA, you must be able to prove that besides the abuse, you have been in the U.S. for at least three years and are of good moral character, as well as that your deportation would cause you or your family extreme hardship.
  • U visa cases. This may apply if you, as an immigrant, have been a victim of a serious crime and suffered mental or physical injury because of that crime. For you to qualify for a U visa and gain extended or permanent residency, you must be able to help the authorities apprehend the criminals responsible.
  • Form I-751 Petition to Remove Conditions on Residence cases. If you are in the U.S. on the condition of a recent marriage to a permanent resident or U.S. citizen, you may be able to file an I-751 to remove that conditional residency status and gain permanent status. You must file the I-751 within 90 days of the expiration of your temporary Green Card.
  • I-290B Motion to Reopen/Appeal adverse decisions. If an immigration decision has gone against you, you may be able to file an I-290B and overturn that decision in your favor. Speed is of the essence in these cases because you may need to file the I-290B within as few as 15 days of the adverse decision.
  • I-601 Extreme Hardship Waiver cases. If you were basically eligible for a Green Card but there is some aspect of your case that makes you ineligible, you may be able to file an I-601 Hardship Waiver to successfully waive that negative aspect. To be successful in an I-601, proof is necessary that you’d suffer extreme hardship because of deportation.
  • I-601A Provisional Unlawful Presence Waiver cases. Foreign nationals who are not allowed to stay in the U.S. while they try to get a Green Card may be able to use the I-601A if they have close relatives who are U.S. citizens or permanent residents. If successful, they would be allowed to file the I-601A before leaving the U.S. The advantage to having the I-601A filed before leaving is it can speed up the immigration application process which would then continue from the foreign national’s home country.
