Easy Choices: Advice From a Top Coeur d’Alene Immigration Law Firm

Gavel and Book Choosing where to set down roots may be the first task of a legal immigrant coming to work near the border between Washington and Idaho. The question is, which is the better state to live in? Either state can offer legal permanent residents a wonderful lifestyle depending on their interests.

The Spokane Valley area tends to be more liberal and serves a diverse population. It has a metropolitan feel and is surrounded by lovely Washington suburbs. Coeur d’Alene on the other hand, is a bit more conservative and quiet. It offers a “homey” small town feel. It’s also surrounded by farmland, lakes and forests for plenty of outdoor adventures. Both states boast fresh North American air and a decent real estate market. When factoring in any legal issues, such as state laws, choosing one place over the other might not make much of a difference.

As a top Coeur d’Alene Immigration Law Firm, we are frequently asked about the legal differences between states. There are a few. Marijuana DUI or personal injury cases can differ depending on which side of the boarder our clients happen to be in. One thing to remember, green card and visa issues are managed the same in any state you choose to reside. That’s because immigration law is set at the Federal level. In order to strike a good balance, we’ve found that serving both federal and state legal issues is a big benefit to our clients.

Client Reviews
★★★★★
I applied for citizenship the first time, but my husband was previously denied citizenship. We hired Elliott Law Group and both Lana and Kate really exceeded our expectations. My husband and I just got sworn in as U.S. citizens! T.S.
★★★★★
I first hired Lana to help me obtain legal residency for my parents in 2006, then for my wife in 2007. She did a great job and my parents and wife got their green cards. Although Lana is not in California anymore, she still assists with immigration processes for other members of my family. I highly recommend her services to anyone who needs the help of a highly qualified immigration lawyer. S.P.
