Defending the rights of foreign nationals

The complex U.S. immigration laws and regulations constantly change and create seemingly insurmountable roadblocks to building a better life in America. One mistake or missed deadline can cause frustrating delays or permanently separate you from your home and loved ones in the United States.

The skilled immigration lawyers at David H. Walkowiak, P.A. have more than 15 years of combined experience assertively defending the rights of foreign nationals who want to come to or remain in the country. We can assist you with issues involving:

  • Citizenship
  • Naturalization
  • Green cards
  • Family-sponsored visas
  • Deportation
  • Asylum claims
  • Detention
  • Removal
  • Bond hearings
  • Waivers

Florida detention and immigration court

Being detained by immigration is a frightening experience. You are locked up in a jail cell, unable to work or interact with loved ones. Even if you have obeyed the law, you may lose your freedom and face removal to economically depressed or dangerous conditions. We represent you during Immigration and Customs Enforcement (ICE) investigations and immigration court hearings to demand your fair treatment by the Department of Homeland Security (DHS).

Obtaining an alien resident card (green card)

A green card gives you many of the advantages of U.S. citizenship — including the unencumbered ability to work, study and drive in the United States. We help families maneuver through the complicated process of obtaining a green card that imparts crucial privileges. We analyze your situation to determine the best pathway to residency, collect vital evidence, file the appropriate documents and attend Citizenship and Immigration Services (CIS) interviews to ensure your rights are protected.

A pathway to U.S. citizenship

A permanent resident can become a U.S. citizen through the naturalization process. Becoming a citizen is an honorable goal of many immigrants who want to vote or apply for their family members to join them in the United States. If you have a criminal record, however, you may be exposing yourself to removal proceedings. We determine your eligibility and thoroughly review your circumstances to ascertain that you are not making a decision that places you at risk.
