Texas Immigration Lawyer You Can Trust

Helping you with your immigration issues
Whether your goal is to live permanently in the United States or to work here temporarily, whether you are an undocumented worker, a high-powered executive, or a citizen marrying your foreign fiancé, The Barnett Law Group has the experience to help you. For 30 years, attorney Pamelia Barnett has assisted clients with the full spectrum of immigration issues, including:

  • Employment-based immigration
  • Family-sponsored immigration
  • Non-immigrant visas
  • Consular matters
  • Naturalization
  • Certificates of U.S. citizenship
  • Asylum and refugee status
  • TPS and humanitarian visas
  • Travel documents
  • Green card renewal
  • Representation at USCIS interviews

Understanding the immigration bureaucracy
The U.S. immigration system is comprised of a complex web of intricate laws and vast bureaucratic agencies, each with its own rules, regulations and policies. We maneuver comfortably through the red tape to bring you the best possible outcomes when dealing with:

  • U.S. Citizenship and Immigration Services (USCIS)
  • U.S. Customs & Border Protection (CBP)
  • U.S. Immigration and Customs Enforcement (USICE)
  • Department of Labor (DOL)
  • Worldwide consulates and embassies
  • Immigration court

Applying for a visa petition
Applying for a visa petition is more complicated than just sending forms to USCIS. The U.S. government requires strict qualifications and outlines inflexible procedures for filing. Mistakes on your petition can lead to crucial delays and possibly a denial of the visa petition. Each type of visa status comes with its own set of essential criteria, which your qualifications must precisely match. We discuss your short-term and ultimate immigration goals to set up a long-range plan. We thoroughly analyze your situation to choose the appropriate pathway, and meticulously gather evidence that supports each element of your eligibility. We anticipate complications and troubleshoot before problems occur.

Constantly-changing immigration laws
Immigration policy is under constant debate and the laws are frequently modified. In addition, the various government agencies that administer immigration regulations regularly update their procedures, forms and guidelines. We stay current on the daily changes in immigration law and alerted to potential changes in the future. To successfully advise you, we consider not only the laws as they exist today but the possibility of beneficial — as well as harmful — changes. Fastidious and dedicated, we relentlessly pursue your case and develop unique solutions to complicated situations.
