We hope it never happens to you or a loved one, but if an INS agent comes to your door you must NOT get nervous! First of all, don’t just open the door. You have every right to ask why they are there and insist upon an interpreter if necessary. Make sure that they have a warrant signed by a judge that they can slide under the door.
Now that we have covered steps one, two, and three what happens next? Warrants I-200 and I-205 DO NOT give agents the right to enter your home. If they force their way in, calmly tell them they do not have your permission to search the premises. If they detain you be confident and ask to speak to a lawyer.
The important thing is to stay calm and do not sign anything without your lawyer’s advice. Try to remember to get badge numbers and the types of vehicles that they are driving. At your first opportunity contact Baltimore area immigration attorney Briana Arnold. She knows exactly what to do next. Her phone number is (410) 484-1400.

This is not about what you think it is. It has everything to do with applying for a Green Card when you have applied for asylum status. It is right out of today’s headlines. If you or a loved one has been granted asylum status, then you are now eligible to apply for permanent residence after one year from the awarding of asylum.
Understand that you are not “required” to apply for a Green Card, but it may be in your best interest to do that. Two things to remember: 1.) You no longer qualify if conditions have changed in your country of origin…or 2.) You no longer meet the definition of an asylee due to changes in your particular circumstance.
This is where it gets tricky. You need an immigration attorney to sort this out. In this area that is Baltimore asylee application attorney Briana Arnold. Visit her website at www.brianaarnoldlaw.com. She will use her years of experience to determine if you are ready and guide you through the process. Call her today at (410) 484-1400.
