Cut Through Immigration Red Tape And Get Moving On With Your Future In The US

U.S. immigration laws are notoriously complex, and the system can be difficult to navigate even for straightforward cases like spousal visas and completion of citizenship requirements. Immigrants have faced tougher times in recent years, but when opportunity knocks, you need to be ready to open the door.

At Helton, Cody & Associates, PLLC, our goal is to open doors for our clients and smooth legal pathways to temporary or permanent immigration through means such as:

Family-based visas and green cards: As a U.S. citizen, permanent resident or visa holder, you may be able to sponsor your fiancee or fiance, spouse, parent(s), child(ren) or siblings (brothers and sisters) for temporary visas or permanent residency, depending on qualifications. Working with an immigration lawyer at our North Carolina law firm can help ensure that you complete applications accurately, send the correct fees, answer requests for more information promptly and otherwise do your part for success.

Employment-based visas: You may be a prospective employee, or you may represent a U.S. employer seeking to obtain the immigration status for a prospective worker. Whatever you or your employee will need to work in the U.S., we are ready to assist you through the process.

Asylum and refugee status: Have you applied for asylum and now a U.S. agency or court is asking you to verify evidence that you qualify? We can help you fulfill the requirements without delay. Are you a visitor in this country hoping to apply for asylum? Let us help you explore your options.

Deferred Action for Childhood Arrivals (DACA): We can keep you up to date on what you need to know to keep your DACA status for as long as possible.

Permanent residency (green card status): Have you been in the U.S. so far on a fiance(e) visa, a work visa, a student visa or a family-based visa? If you now wish to pursue status as a lawful permanent resident (LPR), we can help you prepare, apply and fulfill the necessary requirements if green card status is an option for you.

Naturalization (becoming a U.S. citizen): We advise LPRs on the most efficient path to U.S. citizenship.

Deportation defense: We defend clients at risk of deportation, including noncitizens charged with crimes. We advise and represent Latin American, Asian, African and other clients in their interactions with government agencies such as the United States Citizenship and Immigration Services (USCIS), U.S. Customs and Border Protection (CBP), U.S. Immigration and Customs Enforcement (ICE), detention centers and immigration courts.
