Hablando con la abogada Jessica Piedra: New policies = More caution

Hello friends, as you know, immigration issues have gotten more complicated with our new president. In the last few months, there have been two major changes that are making us worry a lot. The first says that if you don’t send in all the required documents for your case, it can be denied instead of them just asking you for it. The second says if your case is denied, they will put you into deportation proceedings. Neither of these changes will apply to DACA, but they will apply to everything else.
Up to now, if you filed your immigration case and forgot to send something, like a birth certificate, the Immigration Service would send a “Request for Evidence.” They would give you time to respond with the correct document and then continue deciding your case once they received it. Starting in September, the new policy will likely result in more cases being denied. It may be possible to reapply, but you would have to pay the filing fee again. It will be more important than ever to work with a reliable attorney to handle your case.
The other threat is that once the case is denied, then you would be put into deportation court. Before, if the case was denied, usually they did not act against the immigrant. The new policy will start sometime in the next few months and will impact cases pending now and in the future. Again, is more important than ever to work with a reliable attorney to handle your case.
Now is not the time to “save” money by filing by yourself or with a “notario.” You will end up spending thousands of dollars in immigration court if it goes wrong. Call us to discuss your case at 816-895-6363.


Nuevas políticas = Más precaución

Hola amigos, como saben, los problemas de inmigración se han vuelto más complicados con nuestro nuevo presidente. En los últimos meses, hay dos cambios importantes que nos preocupan mucho. El primero dice que, si no envía todos los documentos requeridos para su caso, se puede denegar en lugar de que se lo pidan. El segundo dice que, si su caso es denegado, lo pondrán en proceso de deportación. Ninguno de estos cambios se aplicará a DACA, pero se aplicarán a todo lo demás.
Hasta ahora, si presentaba su caso de inmigración y olvidaba enviar algo, como un certificado de nacimiento, el Servicio de Inmigración enviaba una “Solicitud de Evidencia”. Le daban tiempo para responder con el documento correcto y luego continuar decidiendo su caso una vez que lo recibieron. A partir de septiembre, la nueva política resultará que se denieguen más casos. Es posible volver a presentar la solicitud, pero deberá pagar la tarifa nuevamente. Será más importante que nunca trabajar con una abogada confiable para manejar su caso.
La otra amenaza es que una vez que el caso sea denegado, entonces usted será puesto en deportación. Antes, si el caso era denegado, generalmente no actuaban contra el inmigrante. La nueva política comenzará en algún momento en los próximos meses y tendrá un impacto en los casos pendientes ahora y en el futuro. Una vez más, es más importante que nunca trabajar con una abogada confiable para manejar su caso.
Ahora no es el momento de “ahorrar” dinero llenándolo solo o con un “notario”. Usted terminará gastando miles de dólares en un tribunal de inmigración si sale mal. Llámenos para hablar sobre su caso al 816-895-6363.
