While each and every immigration-related matter is unique in some respects, at Nerina Smart, P.A. our goal is always the same: a timely and successful outcome for our client obtained by using whatever means is available to us by law.

There are ways of obtaining lawful permanent residence that are only available to individuals from specific countries. Currently, nations such as Nicaragua, Cuba, and Haiti fall into this category. However, change is constant in immigration law and pending legislation is always just on the horizon.

Did You Know:
The Haitian Refugee Immigration Fairness Act was signed into law in 1998. HRIFA allows certain people from Haiti to apply for lawful permanent resident status without having to first apply for an immigrant visa at a United States consulate abroad. HRIFA also waives many of the usual requirements for immigration.
