Philadelphia Immigration Information

Do You Have an Immigration Issue?

Immigration is a broad area of law encompassing all issues regarding the legal entry and legal status of people in the United States other than US Citizens. An experienced Philadelphia Immigration attorney can help you maneuver through the complex laws so you can learn what your options are.

Different Types of Immigration Cases

Whether you are looking to visit the United States temporarily, work here or establish permanent residency, you need to follow strict immigration laws. An Immigration law firm will have the knowledge of the law you will need to have a successful case.

If you are already a permanent resident you may still need an immigration lawyer should you want to become a United States Citizen. As this is the last phase of Immigration law, you do not want to risk making any mistakes. Addittionally, an Immigration Attorney or law firm can help defend those who are facing deportation or removal from the United States.

What sort of issues can I seek legal help with?

Specialized legal help is available for most legal issues. Each case is unique; seeking legal help is a smart first step toward understanding your legal situation and seeking the best path toward resolution for your case. An experienced lawyer understands the local laws surrounding your case and what your best legal options might be. More importantly, there are certain situations and circumstances - such as being charged with a crime - where you should always seek experienced legal help.

Top Questions to Ask a Lawyer

  • What is the usual process to resolve my case? How long will it take to resolve this?
  • What are likely outcomes of a case like mine? What should I expect?

An experienced lawyer should be able to communicate a basic "road map" on how to proceed. The lawyer should be able to walk you through the anticipated process, key considerations, and potential pitfalls to avoid. Once you've laid out the facts of your situation to the lawyer, he/she should be able to frame expectations and likely scenarios to help you understand your legal issue.

Types of legal fees:

Bill by the hour: Many attorneys bill by the hour. How much an attorney bills you per hour will vary based on a number of factors. For instance, an attorney's hourly fee may fluctuate based on whether that hour is spent representing you in court or doing research on your case. Attorneys in one practice area may bill you more than attorneys in a different practice area.

Contingent fee: Some lawyers will accept payment via contingent fee. In this arrangement, the lawyer receives a percentage of the total monetary recovery if you win your lawsuit. In sum, the lawyer only gets paid if you win. Contingent fee agreements are limited to specific practice areas in civil law.

Flat fee: For "routine" legal work where the attorney generally knows the amount of time and resources necessary to complete the task, he/she may be willing to bill you a flat fee for services performed.

Common legal terms explained
