What immigration procedures can be carried out without a lawyer?

Today I was in the program Telemundo's "Un Nuevo Día" (A New Day) to talk about immigration procedures that do not require a lawyer and give some tips on how to carry them out.

For example, individuals without criminal records or immigration arrests can renew their green card or work permit using the electronic systems of the U.S. Citizenship and Immigration Services (USCIS) or by submitting the appropriate forms to the federal government.

My participation this morning was particularly special, because I had the opportunity to celebrate with part of the team that the show won a prestigious Emmy award.

Last night, for the second year in a row, "Un Nuevo Día" won an Emmy for Best Spanish-language National Morning Show. I congratulate the hosts and the production team for this great achievement.

Since April 2014 I have been collaborating with "Un Nuevo Día" as an immigration attorney, reporting on topics of great use to the immigrant community in the United States and answering their questions live.

I thank the producers of the program and especially Mr. Fernando Almánzar, who produces the immigration segments of "Un Nuevo Día", for giving me the opportunity to contribute and be part of the group of lawyers that every week inform the Hispanic community about immigration issues.

Below you can watch the segment I recorded today, where at the end we celebrate the triumph of being part of the team of collaborators that helped "Un Nuevo Día" win its second Emmy.
