Below, we discuss a few of the most common immigration issues we can help with:

Immigration Defense

Unfortunately, hundreds of immigrants in Alabama face deportation and removal actions in our state every year. You might have built a life here, but when removal proceedings begin, everything you have worked so hard for feels like it is going to disappear.

There’s good news: Through a solid defense and strategic legal action, you may be able to avoid deportation and continue your life in Alabama. Some common defenses to deportation include the following:

  • Criminal waivers. If criminal conduct in your past is the reason why you are facing deportation proceedings, you may be able to apply for a criminal waiver that puts a stop to the proceedings. These waivers are only available in specific circumstances, so ask your attorney about your options.
  • Adjustment of status. Sometimes, an application for permanent residence (green card) can be used as defense to removal proceedings. 
  • Seeking Temporary Protected Status (TPS). Individuals from certain countries may be given TPS if the conditions in their native country make their return to the country unsafe or impossible. Successfully seeking TPS can stop removal proceedings.
  • Requesting prosecutorial discretion. Prosecutorial discretion is the concept that allows agencies like Immigration and Customs Enforcement (ICE) to decide when and how to enforce immigration laws. In other words, they don’t have to deport you or your loved one. Your attorney may be able to help you convince the government attorney to administratively close your case.
  • Violence Against Women Act (VAWA). In some cases, VAWA allows the victims of domestic violence and related crimes to obtain certain visas including U visas and T visas that allow them to remain in the U.S., even under threat of deportation proceedings.
  • Motions to suppress or terminate. Often, immigration authorities make mistakes or knowingly violate regulations when detaining or charging immigrants. In such cases, an immigration attorney may be able to convince the court to suppress evidence against you or terminate the deportation proceedings altogether.

These are only a few of the examples of ways an experienced immigration attorney can help you avoid removal from the U.S.

Work Permits

USCIS Form I-765, the form you fill out to apply for authorization to work in the U.S., is complicated, and even small mistakes can ruin your chance of approval. Being unable to secure a work permit gives you no legal way to earn a living while you are in the U.S. That’s why so many foreign-born people in Alabama seek the help of an immigration lawyer. 

Your immigration attorney at Gonzalez Dollar Law, LLC, can help you with every aspect of the work permit process so you don’t have to worry or wonder. We will keep you informed and be honest with you at every step. 

Green Cards

For many people who have come to Alabama from other countries, permanent resident status is the ultimate goal — the one that allows you to truly make a life here. Green cards allow you to live and work in the U.S., as well as travel in and out of the country. They also pave the way to U.S. citizenship and can enable you to bring your unmarried children and spouse to Alabama with their own green cards.

If this is what you’re looking for, you may face a long road of legal obstacles, but a qualified lawyer can make that road a lot shorter and a lot less stressful. Speak with our firm as soon as possible to get the process started. 


If you were born outside of the United States, you will have to go through a process called naturalization to become a U.S. citizen. The requirements for naturalization are strict, and the paperwork and legal processes involved are confusing. 

We’re here to help. Mr. Gonzalez Dollar can help you understand whether you are eligible to become a naturalized citizen, walk you through the process, and keep you informed at every step.
