Family Law & Immigration

North Carolina Immigration Lawyer

Family law consists of matters such as marriage, divorce, legal separation, child custody, and domestic violence. For United States citizens, these matters are straightforward and can be handled by a skilled criminal attorney. For family law cases involving immigrants, however, these matters can become more complicated due to a client's immigrant or nonimmigrant status. Many family law matters involving immigrants are handled according to the Immigration & Nationality Act (INA) and state family laws. If you are facing a family law matter as an immigrant, a North Carolina immigration attorney from Fayad Law, P.C. can help.

Immigrants in Divorce

Two of the most common types of family law cases that can have a negative impact on a person's immigrant or nonimmigrant status are divorce and domestic violence. When an immigrant enters the U.S. on a K visa as a spouse or fiancé(e), they may be waiting for their permanent resident status to be finalized when the divorce proceedings commence. If the divorce is finalized before the individual receives their green card, they could face removal proceedings. Fayad Law, P.C. can help you avoid divorce, and therefore removal, by pursuing separate cohabitation or some other alternative, or can fight to expedite your permanent resident application so that you do not have to leave the country.

Domestic Violence Cases for Immigrants

Domestic violence can also have a negative impact on an immigrant's visa status. If you and / or your children have been severely abused or injured by a violent spouse or parent, you have every right to seek protection. Citizenship or lawful permanent residency is not required in these kinds of domestic violence situations. The INA allows eligible individuals to obtain a U visa that enables them to live separate from their spouse without subjecting them to deportation proceedings.
