Caring Tennessee Immigration Lawyer Helps People to Live and Work in the United States
Responsive advocate based in the Knoxville area assists immigrants and their families
The United States has long been a haven for people from other countries seeking a better way of life. Whether you wish to work here, become a permanent resident or help family members join you in America, Brenda J. Ponsford, PLLC has the experience and dedication to help you realize your goal. I understand that the laws governing immigration can be confusing and frustrating to those who seek to come to these shores or stay here legally. I am committed to making the path to employment, residence, citizenship or travel a less circuitous route for those I represent.
Compassionate immigration lawyer handles a range of issues
The U.S. immigration system comprises a complex web of intricate laws and bureaucratic red tape. I am intimately familiar with the U.S. Citizenship and Immigration Services (USCIS), the U.S. government agency that administers the country's immigration and naturalization system, and I draw on that knowledge to represent clients in a full range of immigration matters, which may include:
- Employment-based immigration
- Family-sponsored immigration
- Nonimmigrant visas
- Certificates of U.S. citizenship
- Immigration bonds
- International adoptions
- Travel documents
- Green card applications and renewals
- Representation at USCIS interviews
In each of these matters, I am dedicated to helping people realize their dream of living or working in the United States. I can help with applications, petitions, forms, and hearings to guide clients through every step of the process.
Skilled attorney offers thorough assistance for visa applications
Applying for a work, travel or residency visa can be a daunting task. The U.S. government places strict requirements on qualifications for individual visas and outlines inflexible procedures for filing. Mistakes on your application can lead to crucial delays and potential denials. I will analyze your short- and long-term goals to set up a long-range plan. By thoroughly understanding your situation, I can gather evidence that supports each element of your eligibility. My experience allows me to anticipate complications in the application process and troubleshoot before problems occur.
Stay current on changing immigration law
Immigration policy is under constant debate, and the laws are frequently modified. To complicate matters, the USCIS regularly updates its procedures, forms and guidelines. I stay current on the shifts in immigration law and updated on potential changes in the pipeline. To successfully advise you, I consider not only the laws as they exist but the possibility of beneficial — as well as harmful — reforms. I am dedicated to pursuing your case and achieving your goals in even the most complicated situations.
