Deportation & Removal

        The immigration laws contain many grounds of removability (reasons why someone can be deported from the United States) and many grounds of inadmissibility (reasons why someone would not be admitted to the United States). Some parts of these lists are identical, some are similar and some are completely unique!   Alexander S. Mulgrew, Esq. has sixteen years of experience in navigating these often convoluted rules and regulations and defending clients in removal proceedings.

         Most significantly, criminal convictions often have very different, and often very serious, consequences for non-citizens than they do for citizens of the United States.  You can not afford to rely on the services or advice of an attorney who does not have the immigration law-related experience to tell you how a criminal conviction, no matter how insignificant it may seem, will effect your current immigration status or your ability to obtain an immigration benefit in the future.

         Criminal conviction, immigration violation, fraud or misrepresentation . . . No matter what the problem, Alexander S. Mulgrew has the experience to assist you with your immigration matters.

Naturalization / Citizenship

        Becoming a United States citizen is a momentous occasion in a person's life.  However, your eligibility to become a U.S. citizen may be affected by factors such as:  how many times you have traveled outside the U.S. and how long those trips have been for; criminal convictions; child and spousal support obligations; taxation issues; and more.  You need the help of an experienced immigration attorney to prepare your case  so that it has the best chance of success and being approved the first time.

         Some people may be surprised to find out that under the immigration law they are already U.S. citizens.  U.S. citizenship can often be "automatically" attained due to your being born outside the U.S. to a U.S. citizen mother, father, or both parents.  In other situations the fact that your mother or father, or sometimes both parents has become a U.S. citizen has given you what is known as derivative citizenship.  You need the help of an experienced immigration attorney to examine the facts of your case and determine how the citizenship laws apply to you.

Immigrant Visas

        Family Based      Immigration law allows both U.S. citizens and Lawful Permanent Residents to petition for certain family members to immigrate to the United States.  U.S. citizens and Lawful Permanent Residents may petition for various categories of relatives.

        Employment Based     Immigration Law allows for U.S. employers to seek to fill a work position by obtaining an immigrant visa to allow a person to immigrate to the United States to work for the employer.

Deferred Action & Prosecutorial Discretion

        In certain situations the Department of Homeland Security (DHS) will choose not to take steps to remove or deport someone from the United States.  One manner in which this is done is through Prosecutorial Discretion, in which DHS reviews the facts of an individual case to determine whether it will choose not to actively pursue removal at the present time.  Another manner is Deferred Action for Childhood Arrivals (DACA), in which the individual files an affirmative application asking DHS to grant then Deferred Action status.
