I am the founder of Dahlia Castillo Immigration Law and the immigration lawyer of the firm. My priority is to secure a future for my clients by helping them obtain legal status, so they can remain in the United States. I work in immigration court to help defend my clients from deportation. I prepare family green card petitions, unlawful presence waivers (601A), consular processing, citizenship, asylum, visas for victims of human trafficking, domestic violence and victims of crimes, such as U visas and employment visas.
As an immigration lawyer, I understand intimately the immigration process. I know how overwhelming the process is because my family and I have gone through the process. I was born in Jamaica and came to the United States with my family seeking the American dream. My legal training and personal experience as an immigrant have given me the knowledge necessary to help my clients navigate through the immigration process.
I work hard to ensure that all my clients receive the personal attention she or he deserve. All cases are personally handled by me and not by the legal assistants.
I has been exclusively practicing immigration law since 2012 to ensure I stay up to date with the latest changes in immigration law. Immigration law is highly complex and it is very risky to apply for status without an immigration lawyer.
I am an active member of the American Immigration Lawyers Association (AILA) a national organization of 13,000 immigration lawyers and law professors who practice and teach immigration law, AILA Carolinas chapter, and ASISTA an organization that provides technical assistance and training to immigration lawyers and advocates who assist noncitizen survivors of violence in the immigration law arena (i.e. VAWA, Trafficking and other victims of crimes). I prepare family green card petitions, unlawful presence waivers (601A), consular processing, citizenship, asylum, visas for victims of human trafficking, domestic violence and victims of crimes, such as U visas. Most of my cases (i.e VAWA, Trafficking, and other victims of crime) often require the services of mental health providers who can assist with therapy and psychological evaluations. As such, I am reaching to providers in the area regarding the types of services they offer and how we can help the community.
I speak conversational Spanish. I participated in a Spanish language immersion course in Puebla, Mexico to improve my Spanish.
I speak conversational Spanish and I am constantly looking for opportunities to improve my Spanish, which I did when I participated in a month Spanish language immersion program in Puebla Mexico.
