For a permanent resident or Green Card Holder, United States Citizenship is their dream.

These situations can take away that dream or even see you deported for your actions.
If you or your loved one is facing deportation, please contact us at The Michael Gonzalez Law Firm today for a free consultation to discuss deportation defense strategies. Or, perhaps you are in need of our services in filing a petition for immigration benefits. We look forward to helping you with that process as well. Please call us at (956) 572-6792.
The process of deportation can be as isolating as it is terrifying. It can be a humiliating experience to have ICE or DHS take you away from your family and move you to a detention center. With the lack of a reliable database, families often do not know that their loved one has been deported until months later. You can be picked up by law enforcement not related to DHS or ICE under the Delegation of Immigration Authority Section 287(g) Immigration and Nationality Act. Texas strictly enforces this law and this can leave people who are living in the United States without documentation vulnerable to unfairness from law enforcement as well as from those who do have the documentation to live and to work in the United States. The Michael Gonzalez Law Firm will recognize when an honest and hard working person has been denied fairness or equal treatment under the laws of the United States and will challenge these inequities with vigor and clear purpose because that is the reason our attorneys chose this profession in the first place. If you or someone you love is in need of deportation defense, then please call The Michael Gonzalez Law Firm at (956) 572-6792. We look forward to helping you.
Let’s face it, the US economy is heavily reliant on migrant and permanent workers. Immigrants, or those seeking immigration status, like you, have an excellent work ethic and are not afraid to work any job. Sometimes the journey to getting a work visa is easy but, often, it is very hard. It is easy to lose a work visa as well. If you are having difficulty obtaining a work visa or have any struggles with employment immigration, please contact Michael Gonzalez today at (956) 572-6792.

Every case is different and we have what it takes to confront your situation and win. Please call now for a consultation at (956) 572-6792.
Marriage-based immigration is a complex process. With the stigmatism of arranged marriages and mail-order brides, authorities can be skeptical of an international marriage. This type of visa can take years to approve, and usually there is no real way to speed up the process. In fact, marriage-based immigration is usually scrutinized more harshly than all other types of immigration. Do not let this discourage you; we are here to help and have the knowledge you need. Call today to schedule a consultation for a K-1 or K-3 visa at (956) 572-6792.

The United States of America can be a great place to live. Those of us at The Law Firm of Michael Gonzalez understand the desire to want to seek asylum in our great nation. Asylum is an incredibly arduous process that can drag out for years. There are strict criteria that you must meet in order to qualify for asylum and, often, you must wait in detention, which can have a devastating effect on you emotionally, physically and in other ways. If you or a loved one is in detention awaiting the outcome of a case, please call us for help at The Law Firm of Michael Gonzalez at (956) 572-6792.
In the recent political climate, DACA is at the forefront of our minds when we think about removal cases. Families who have lived together in the United States for decades are under the threat of being separated. There are some people who have overstayed their visa. We know that every case is different and we want to help. If you or your loved one is facing deportation, please contact us for help at (956) 572-6792.
Temporary Protected Status
The United States of America recognizes certain countries in the world as unstable. If you are from countries such as El Salvador, Haiti, Honduras, Nicaragua, Somalia or Sudan, you are eligible to apply to work and live in the United States. However, this only allows you to stay in the country and work, but it doesn’t allow you a path to obtaining a Green Card. If you or someone you love is from these countries they may qualify for temporary protected status. Reach out to us at The Law Firm of Michael Gonzalez today at (956) 572-6792 for a free consultation.
U Visas, VAWA , T Visa, S Visa and Related Petitions for Victims of Violence
The U visa is used to protect a person who is living in the United States without documentation and who is a victim of a serious crime committed by a United States citizen or green card holder. Victims often have a fear of returning to their homes due to issues such as domestic violence or human trafficking, and for these situations there are specific petitions that can be filed in an appropriate case that can result in a green card. We want to help you if this is your situation. Perhaps you or someone you know needs a U visa and is frightened to go to the authorities. If this is the case, please call us at (956) 572-6792.
