Work Permits

As an immigrant, in order to legally work in the United States, you must either become a permanent resident or be granted permission for employment authorized by the immigration service. Once you have obtained your authorization of employment, you will be able to obtain a social security card and can work lawfully within the United States. In today's uncertain political climate, many undocumented immigrants find themselves unable to obtain work authorization under the current strict immigration laws. It is of great importance that those immigrants obtain a taxpayer identification number (TIN) from the Internal Revenue Service and file taxes and keep records of the filings.

Workers & Students

It is often necessary to have documentation of all of your earning while you are in the United States, whether as a result of authorized or unauthorized employment.

Naturalization is the process in which U.S. Citizenship is granted to a foreign citizen or national after they fulfill the requirements established by Congress in the Immigration and Nationality Act (INA).

While ultimately rewarding, the process itself can be difficult and time-consuming, so helps to have an experienced attorney to navigate the tricky legalities and make sure that you're as prepared as possible when it's time to take your test and swear the oath. David Borts is that attorney. Let him make the process easier on you.


Deportation is an attempt by the federal government to remove an immigrant from the United States as a result of purported violations of US immigration law. Once deported, it is possible for an immigrant to lose the permanent right to re-enter the United States. If placed in deportation, an immigrant has the legal right to challenge the proceeding, and an experienced attorney like David Borts can help. Even after an order of Deportation has been issued, it is still possible to file an appeal to remain in the United States.

Given the complexities of the situation, out of fear, many immigrants have failed to appear at deportation hearings, which then result in the issuing of an absentia order to deport them from the United States. However, in this situation, it is still possible to file a "motion to re-open" in order to revisit and possibly overturn the issues that caused the original case. The Law Offices of David Borts has successfully filed and re-litigated hundreds of these cases.
