Provisional Waiver – Petition for Immediate Relative
On January 2, 2013, USCIS announced the long awaited posting of the final rules for the provisional waiver process, a sensible solution to a component of immigration law that caused families to be separated during the petition process for immediate relatives (spouses, parents and children) who had entered the United States without inspection. Because of the beneficiary’s status and method of entry into the United States, the former process would require that they leave the country and apply for a waiver of their inadmissibility caused by such status. That could result in immediate relatives being separated from their families for extremely long periods of time, even as much as ten years. Under the process proposed early in 2012 and outlined with today’s announcement, the immediate relative can now apply for that waiver of inadmissibility while in the United States. While they still must depart the United States to obtain their visa through a consular process, if approved for the provisional waiver they would depart the country with the comfort and knowledge that they will be granted reentry promptly.
The Hernan Law Firm can help individuals detained in immigration facilities to obtain a bond (if they are eligible) or to seek a reduction to an existing bond. Qualification for bond and the circumstances that affect the amount of a bond are complicated and a skilled attorney can be of vital importance in the process in obtaining the lowest possible bond so that your loved one can obtain a release from immigration custody pending the final outcome of their case.
Cancellation of Removal
Individuals who have been in the United States for at least ten (10) years, have been a person of good moral character and whose removal would cause extreme and unusual hardship to a United States citizen (qualifying relative) may be eligible to avoid removal if approved through the cancellation of removal process. A very limited number of approvals (currently 4,000) can be granted each year. Call The Hernan Law Firm at (678) 275-4000 to find out how we can help you if you are in this situation.
The Hernan Law Firm assists individuals who are seeking deferrals of their removal from the United States due to extraordinary circumstances or based on humanitarian concerns. Further, the firm stands ready to assist young people filing for deferred action through the recently announced process for individuals under the age of 31 who entered the United States prior to the age of 16 and qualify for renewable two year terms of deferred action and a work permit as a result of their entry into the United States as a minor child and their maintenance of a clean or minor criminal history.
Voluntary Departure / Expedited Removal
The Hernan Law Firm can help individuals obtain an order of voluntary departure if they qualify in order to avoid deportation. If there is no way to avoid deportation (e.g., serious criminal history), we can help expedite the process.

Because Itâ€™s Our Client's That Matter Most
Yale was great... affordable, accessible, responsive and knowledgeable. He spent time with me one-on-one and achieved a positive outcome for my family and me.
With his many years of experience, Mr. Lewis was very knowledgeable in response to my case. While he acted as my council, he was prompt in his responses and clear about what had to be done, saving me time and money..
If you need an attorney to tell you the truth and get the job done, Mr. Lewis is definitely the right attorney. I have been a Paralegal in the legal field for more than 5 years and have met many attorneys and Mr. Lewis is by far one of the most well-versed attorneys in his field that I have ever met.
Debunking Some Real Estate Myths
I have a real estate broker so I donâ€™t need a lawyer.
A real estate broker is paid to close deals, not to look out for your interests. They are not qualified to offer legal advice and may not be too concerned about the finer details of your contract. Legal advice from an experienced real estate attorney protects your interests and helps avoid significant issues down the road.
Real estate attorneys are too expensive.
The pricing is determined by the firm you choose, but there are many quality real estate attorneys that perform basic real estate services like title searches, contract reviews, and closings for very reasonable fees. In any case, it is much more affordable then ending up in costly litigation due to issues that were easily avoidable.
Lawyers just complicate the process.
A good real estate attorney should actually make your transaction go more smoothly. We reduce the chances of last-second surprises that delay or disrupt your transaction by doing our due-diligence up front.
