Chino Hills Immigration Litigation Attorneys
Knowledgeable Advocacy in Chino Hills, Irvine, and the Surrounding Areas
Navigating the United States immigration system is rarely an easy or straightforward process. Conflicts often develop between applicants, sponsoring employers, and United States Citizenship and Immigration Services (USCIS) when requests for visas or benefits are unfairly denied or delayed. In these situations, you may need to go to court to protect your interests.
Since 2009, our team at Parikh & Prasad, PC has been championing the rights of immigrants in California and Nevada. Our Chino Hills immigration litigation lawyers know how to effectively approach many types of disputes and are prepared to fight for you in and out of the courtroom.

We are skilled litigators who have a strong track record of success, and you will have direct access to our attorneys throughout our handling of your case.
Understand Your Legal Options
If you are having trouble with USCIS, you should consider the full breadth of your legal options, including federal litigation. If you believe your request for an immigration benefit has been unfairly denied, you in many cases can file a motion to reopen or reconsider the application. This process is done through USCIS, and you will have to provide evidence that your denial was due to an incorrect application of the law. If this approach does not result in a favorable outcome, you may need to consider litigation.
Unreasonable USCIS processing delays are also becoming more and more prevalent. You may find yourself in a situation where the agency refuses to provide an update on your application. In these scenarios, federal litigation (specifically, a writ of mandamus) can also be used to force an action.
For example, if you have applied to become a U.S. citizen, you understandably expect USCIS to review your request in a timely manner. However, you may receive no word after waiting the customary 14 months, and requests for updates may be met with vague and noncommittal answers. You may need to take legal action to essentially force USCIS to approve or deny your application.
Our Chino Hills immigration litigation attorneys can represent you in cases involving:
