Immigration and criminal law

Kafor Law Firm, PLLC represents individuals regarding immigration law and criminal law. Laws under each category are serious and can lead to harsh punishment if broken. Therefore, it is important to seek trustworthy legal representation.

Immigration Law

Immigrants can visit, live and work in the U.S., but they must first apply for a visa. Visas can be obtained by those who want to enter the country permanently and for those who are only visiting the U.S. temporarily. Immigrants seeking permanent citizenship are subject to country-specific quotas. Thus, they will not only have to get approved, but they may also have to wait their turn to possess a green card. Immigrants seeking temporary status are not subject to quotas.

Immigrant law is extensive and particular. The federal government requires immigrants to provide numerous records and documentation in line for approval. In addition, an interview must be conducted at the applicable U.S. Embassy or Consulate before a visa is established. The applicant, petitioner and applicant attorney will be notified of the appointment date.

The approval process is not easy to navigate through, but the federal government requires specific documentation and confirmation in order to protect the United States. Kafor Law Firm can help clients navigate through the process. We’ll make the sure the t’s are crossed and the I’s dotted and we’ll guide all parties every step of the way to ensure all goes smoothly in a pursuit to gain U.S. citizenship.

Criminal Law

Criminal acts are of course serious matters. Laws are established for a reason and the breaking of a law will result in some variation of punishment. Unfortunately, there are instances when someone can be wrongfully accused or when someone’s role in a criminal act can be misconstrued. In such cases, the help of an attorney can be quite beneficial.

When a crime is committed, three aspects are considered: 1) the act or conduct to commit the crime, 2) the person’s mental state at the time of the act and 3) the proximate cause of the negative outcome. Each aspect is evaluated by a defense attorney and the prosecution has the burden of establishing proof of all three aspects.

Attorneys are necessary not only for the party or parties which commit the crime, but also accomplices in the crime and individuals who had any involvement or knowledge of the crime before or after it was committed. Essentially, any involvement is a red flag; thus, it would be wise to seek representation.

In adverse situations where the law is front and center and in question, the help of someone who knows the law like the back of their hand can go a long way. Attorneys study the law and therefore know the law. Not just the basics, but the bylaws, the fine prints and the language used throughout the law. They also know how to represent. Moreover, they know how to go to battle for their clients by fighting for what they believe is right!
