U.S Immigration Law
Orlando Immigration Attorney Helps Clients in Central Florida and Throughout The World
At Mubarak Law, your future is our priority! For many individuals, their immigration status in the United States is the single most important element of their lives and the lives of their family.
The Immigration and Nationality Act (INA) is the primary body of law governing the immigration laws of the United States. Needless to say, the INA covers a vast array of cases, processes, and agencies. The big three agencies are USCIS/DHS, EOIR, and the DOS. A brief summary of each agency, and the types of processes/cases are as follows:
- The U.S. Citizenship and Immigration Services (USCIS) is the government agency that oversees lawful immigration to the United States. Most cases begin with USCIS, whether your cases involves a petition for family member, employee, investor visa, self-petition (VAWA) or naturalization (citizenship). This agency provides the forms, collects the fees, conduct interviews, adjudicates all the aforementioned cases, and more. At Mubarak Law, we have successfully handled hundreds of cases at the Orlando USCIS office. Additionally, immigration attorney Nayef Mubarak has been entrusted greatly by many families, requiring him to travel to Chicago, New York, Miami, Palm Beach, and the US Virgin Islands to appear on their behalf for USCIS interviews. Please visit our case results and reviews pages for information about cases handled by Orlando Immigration attorney Mubarak.
USCIS is a division of the US Department of Homeland Security, as Immigration Customs and Enforcement (ICE) and Customs and Border Patrol (CBP). ICE enforces federal laws governing border control, customs, trade, and immigration to promote homeland security and public safety. CBP has a similar description as ICE, however, CBP agents are most encountered at border crossings and ports of entry, like airports for example.
- The Executive Office of Immigration Review (EOIR) , is a division of the Department of Justice (DOJ). The EOIR is the government agency which governs “the Immigration Court.” Individuals whom are in deportation proceedings or removal proceedings will have their Master Calendar Hearings, Individual Calendar Hearings, and Bond Proceeding hearings at the EOIR court. For a list of all EOIR Courts , please click here. Our Immigration attorney has handled many cases at the Orlando Immigration Court, and other immigration courts as well. If you, or a family member have been issued a Notice to Appear with charges initiation removal proceedings, an experienced immigration attorney should be contacted immediately. Failure to attend a court hearing will result in an order of removal (aka order of deportation). If you would like, you can contact us now here (link for contact).
- The Department of State is a large agency; the primary immigration components are related to US passports, US Embassies, and US consulates. After one naturalizes or becomes an American citizen, they are not provided with a US passport immediately. The US passport must be applied for through the US Department of State. For individuals whom have petitioned for individuals abroad ( whether it is family members, employees, or individuals seeking investor visas themselves like the E-2), they must complete Department of State forms and attend an interview at a local US consulate to obtain their visa. Attorney Mubarak has successfully handled dozens of cases that have required consular process.
Our office is located in Orlando, Florida a few miles away from the United States Citizenship and Immigration Service (USCIS) office and the Immigration Court (EOIR).
