Immigration Law is a rather delicate area of jurisprudence related to issues of migration, emigration and repatriation of citizens. Due to the specific nature of immigration legislation, you should apply to the lawyer focused on this specified area to obtain the most favorable result.
Tasks and duties of the immigration lawyer. How the lawyer will help you?
The rights of the lawyer are wider than those of a common legal specialist. The lawyer specialized in immigration law will perform the following duties:
Obtain documents from state authorities required for rendering legal assistance and protection of the client rights, draft applications for granting citizenship or obtaining a temporary residence permit and submit them to respective authorities
Protect the client rights in a critical situation – he will be able to enter the temporary detention /preliminary detention institutions, submit applications, complaints, file motions etc. on behalf of the client
Protect interests of the client in the course of expulsion/deportation proceedings
Help a foreigner in the issues of obtaining a temporary residence permit, granting citizenship
Appeal against the resolutions/decrees on rejection to issue a temporary residence permit/grant citizenship to his client
The main difficulty in the immigration issues is that foreign citizens often cannot fully understand the Georgian legislation. In such situation, assistance of a qualified lawyer is strictly necessary – without this, a foreign citizen is at the risk of being unprotected and obtaining an irremediable outcome for him/her which may be expressed by expulsion from the country/deportation and prohibition to enter Georgia.
