GREEN CARD (Adjustment of Status, Consular Processing)
The Law Office of Nicholas J. Mundy helps immigrants from all over the world come to the United States to gain legal status. Mr. Mundy has helped immigrants for the past 30 years obtain green cards and citizenship.
A Green Card (USCIS I-551) is a document produced and issued by the United States Citizenship and Immigration Services, which is granted in connection with an approved application for lawful permanent residence to the United States (USCIS I-485). Simply stated, a Green Card is proof of lawful residence in the United States.
Currently there are multiple ways for immigrants to obtain lawful residence and status to the United States. The most common ways to obtain a Green Card are through a relative petition, asylum, or sponsorship from an employer.
Immigrants may also be eligible for a Green Card by falling under certain specific and unique exceptions the general rules, promulgated from time to time by the current administration.
Most immigrants to the United States obtain a Green Card from a relative who already possess citizenship or lawful residence to the United States. The relative sponsors the immigrant’s petition for legal status.
Whether you or your family member is here in the United States or abroad, we can help guide you through this difficult and confusing process with ease, including the I-485, I-485A, I-130, G-325, I-765, I-864, Bona Fide Marriage Exemption Request and Stokes Hearing. A consultation is recommended since every case is individual, different, and unique.
The Law of Office of Nicholas J. Mundy helps and assists immigrants who come to the United States seeking political asylum. Asylum to the United States is available for immigrants who are fleeing persecution in their home country. Mr. Mundy is very familiar with the proper forms and procedures necessary to gain political asylum to United States, and has successfully finalized hundreds of asylum cases to victory before the USCIS and at trial after an “Individual Hearing” before the Immigration Court (EOIR).
To have political asylum granted, immigrants must complete and file the forms within 1 year of arriving to the United States, except under very specific circumstances. Upon being retained, Mr. Mundy will complete, file, and prosecute all necessary documents required for clients to obtain political asylum.
Once again, a consultation is recommended since every persons case is individual, different and unique.
Naturalization / Citizenship
Many immigrants who already hold Green Cards are eligible to become naturalized citizens to the United States. Ultimately, the choice is up to the client on whether they prefer to stay lawful permanent residents or become full-fledged citizens. Citizenship to the United States; however, comes with many benefits and advantages and anyone who is eligible to obtain it should seriously consider filing the proper documents. Mr. Mundy has assisted many clients in fulfilling their dream of becoming citizens to the United States.
We are also extremely experienced in prosecuting Naturalization Appeals (N-336) and federal Mandamus Actions to force the USCIS to finalize your naturalization case and give you the approval to which you are entitled.
Removal Proceedings / Deportation
The Law Office of Nicholas J. Mundy routinely represents immigrants who have been put into immigration proceedings by the USCIS or ICE. Many of these people are eligible for a form of relief from deportation and Mr. Mundy has successfully kept thousands of his clients in the United States after they have been put into removal proceedings.
Mr. Mundy appears in Immigration Court multiple times a week in removal proceedings and is fully familiar with the process and area of law. Mr. Mundy’s clients can rest assured that if there is a form of relief available to them, he will find it and prosecute it to the fullest extent. Many immigrants who are put into removal proceedings are not ultimately deported.
The USCIS does arrest and detain immigrants who do not currently have legal status in the United States. Mr. Mundy will visit and interview these clients in prison in order to properly assess their case. Mr. Mundy fights hard to get you or family member out on bond or bail. Many of his clients are eligible to stay in the United States after Mr. Mundy fights their removal proceeding in Immigration Court.
Just because an immigrant is detained by USCIS or ICE does not mean that they must be deported. Relief is available to many immigrants and they may be eligible to stay in the United States.
Post Conviction Relief (PCR) and NY CPL 440 Motions
Many immigrants put into removal or deportation proceedings by service of a Notice to Appear (NTA) by the Government require extraordinary measures to successfully achieve a positive result. Some clients actually require that their old criminal cases be reopened to allow them to vacate or change their pleas or sentence. A recent Supreme Court decision in the case of Kentucky v. Padilla has opened the door to more lenient treatment of these requests by the local Courts. Whether you or your loved one is detained or not, this CAN be achieved if handled by the right attorney. Mr. Mundy has the experience and “know how” to bring these cases to Court in New York and New Jersey, and to achieve a successful result that will ultimately allow us to fight off deportation, get you out of jail, and keep you in the country.
Mr. Mundy knows the criminal and immigration laws. Although our attorneys would prefer to represent you in represent you in Criminal Court as well as Immigration Court, we will also gladly work hand-in-hand with your current criminal attorney to insure that pending criminal matters and recommended plea agreements do not have negative immigration consequences or result in deportation. Mr. Mundy can also assist with plea agreements, pleas negotiations and sentencing memorandum.
A consultation is highly recommended to discuss your individual and particular circumstances and needs.
If you wish to enter the United States for a temporary period of time, a non-immigrant visa permits you to travel to a U.S. port of entry and request permission of the Department of Homeland Security to visit for a specific purpose. Your reason for coming to the U.S. might be for work, school, a conference, to visit friends or family in the country, vacation, etc. This differs from an immigrant visa holder who can enter and stay permanently.
The Law Office of Nicholas J. Mundy can guide you through the confusing and complicated process of getting a non-immigrant visa. We can make it easy for you and we help determine the visa category that is right for you and assist you with changing status from your current category to a new visa category. In appropriate cases, we can also obtain legal status and work authorization for your dependent family members.
The length of time someone can stay in the U.S. depends on the visa status under which they are admitted - for example, specialty occupation. And a person admitted in one status can often change their status in order to stay longer or to perform different activities. For instance, a medical school student may want to change his or her status to an employer sponsored non-immigrant visa once they graduate and find employment, assuming their new employer will sponsor them. Several types of non-immigrant visas also allow a person to extend their status and thereby extend their stay in the United States.
The Law Office of Nicholas J. Mundy can help you obtain any kind of Non-Immigrant Visa available. The following is a brief list of the most commonly used temporary non-immigrant visas.
H1-B Specialty Occupation O-1 Individuals of Extraordinary Ability
L-1 Intra-company Transfer TN Professionals
E-1 Treaty Trader E-2 Treaty Investor
R-1 Religious Worker` B Visitor for Business or Visitor for Pleasure
F-1 Student Visa J-1 Exchange Visitors
