Employee/ Employer Immigration Services
Our Harrisburg immigration lawyers can represent employers and employees of every eligible profession. Whether you wish to work for a U.S. company or you’re a U.S. employer who needs to hire temporary or permanent workers, we can help. Depending on the circumstances, applying as an immigrant to temporary and permanent positions can be relatively simple or can be incredibly complicated. The more education and skill you have to bring with you, the less likely you are to be competing with others for the same visa. Our immigration attorneys can help you find the work permit that matches your situation.
Administration Inspection Process & I-9 Employment Audits
The administrative inspection process happens when an employer needs to provide supporting documentation for their I-9 forms. ICE agents or auditors then conduct a review of the forms for compliance. If technical or procedural violations are found, you could face fines up to $16,000 per violation.
If you’re an employer facing an I-9 audit, you may need to defend yourself against high civil penalties for an alleged infringement. Congress has nearly doubled the fines for violations in recent years, and there are potential criminal charges for employers who engage in employment verification misconduct. If you’re facing this type of charge, make sure you have someone on your side who is familiar with the ins and outs of immigration law.
There are dozens of visas for different types of immigrants. These permits can range from student visas to employment visas or work permits to protective visas. Whether you wish to enter the United States temporarily for school, for work, or to escape persecution at home, Scaringi Law can help. In each of these scenarios, you can only qualify for a particular visa if you meet the criteria listed by the U.S. Citizenship and Immigration Services (USCIS). Our skilled immigration attorneys can look over the details of your case and help you discover whether you qualify for one of these visas.
Deportation/ Removal Defense
If you’re facing deportation or removal from the country, our Harrisburg immigration attorneys are prepared to defend you vigorously. If U.S. immigration authorities have informed you by letter that you are under investigation and will be removed from the country, you can appeal the decision. Typically, immigration enforcement is handled by the Immigration and Customs Enforcement (ICE), while everyday immigration matters are handled by USCIS. You can defend yourself against the removal at immigration court proceedings. ICE may decide to prosecute you for any violations of your original visa or if you have committed certain crimes as a non-citizen. However, you do have the right to an attorney along with a few other limited rights under the U.S. Constitution. Make sure to call an experienced lawyer to give yourself the best chance of avoiding deportation.
Intercountry/ International Adoption
Many couples who decide they want to adopt a child, consider pursuing an international adoption in the hopes of giving a child a better opportunity in the United States. Thousands of U.S. citizens a year adopt from overseas. However, this process is incredibly complex. Not only will an attorney have to understand U.S. immigration law, but they will also need to be able to navigate foreign immigration and adoption law. Depending on the country, these laws also change depending on the political climate. Our firm can work with the USCIS to help you find and adopt your future child. USCIS is in charge of determining the eligibility and suitability of the prospective parents and the eligibility of the child to immigrate to the United States.
