Immigration Law Litigation Support From
Experienced Court Reporting Agencies


Immigration law refers to the set of rules established by the government that determine who is allowed to enter the country, and how long they are allowed to be there. The laws oversee those who enter without permission, overstay, and lose their legal status, but also the process of naturalization for those who desire to become a U.S. Citizen. These laws can only be enacted by federal government, not state government.

Attorneys in this area of practice may assist visitors in gaining a tourist, work, or student visa, or a green card for those who stay in the country for an extended period of time. They may also assist in foreign adoptions and deportation defense. The work of immigration attorneys is rather diverse. Laws surrounding immigration are found in Title 8 of the United States Code.
