Alexandria Immigration Lawyers

Serving Clients in Virginia, Maryland, D.C. and, in Some Cases, Across the U.S.

The United States is a country built on the hard work and determination of immigrants from around the world. In fact, according to the U.S. Census Bureau, the U.S. foreign-born population was about 39,976,000 in 2012, including naturalized U.S. citizens and individuals who are not U.S. citizens. Although life in America may provide many opportunities to immigrants and residents within the country, obtaining permanent residency or citizenship can pose significant challenges.

For a variety of immigration matters turn to The Barrera Law Firm, PLLC. We handle family petitions, asylum (affirmative and defensive), special immigrant juvenile status matters and removal defense.

Facing Deportation? You Are Not Alone.

In the event that you or a loved one faces deportation, we can help. Deportation can be a frightening event that can change the course of your life and greatly affect your ability to work, provide for your family or be among your loved ones. If you face deportation, we can help protect your rights and may be able to provide you with immigration relief.

If you wish to change your immigration status within the U.S., we can help as well. Undocumented immigrants may have grounds to achieve permanent residency status, and we will explore whether such opportunities exist, given your circumstances. This ultimately may depend on your current circumstances, your manner of entry into the country, and many other factors you should review with your immigration attorney in Alexandria.

Frequently Asked Questions (FAQ)

Helping Clients in Virginia Resolve Their Immigration Matters
  • My green card expired, is there a way I can renew it?
    If your green card recently expired and you are still a permanent resident in the U.S., you can still renew it. However, if you have been out of the country for more than a year, USCIS will consider your green card abandoned. Stop by our office today to find out if you are eligible for renewal.
  • Can I still petition for my parent if they were deported for domestic violence?
    Your ability to petition for your parent will depend on their admissibility. An experienced lawyer can review the details of your case and help you review their immigration and criminal records to determine their eligibility.
  • How long does it take to process an I-130 application?
    There is currently a major backlog of immigration cases with USCIS. Your I-130 petition can take more than 1 year to process as USCIS tries to even out the case load.
  • Can I extend my U-visa?
    Unfortunately, U-visas can’t be extended because they are only issued for 4 years.
  • What if I no longer have a relationship with my petitioner?
    You are going to need to find a new petitioner if your old one is no longer willing to sponsor you for citizenship.
  • Who is a primary candidate for deportation?
    The following is the criteria for deportation under President Trump’s “Enforcement Priorities”: (a) illegal immigrants convicted of criminal offenses, (b) those suspected of fraud or willful misrepresentation in their immigration cases, (c) illegal immigrants who committed “acts” that constitute a “chargeable criminal offense,” (d) illegal immigrants charged with a criminal offense where the charge is “not resolved,” and (e) immigrants who “abuse” any government benefit program.
