People all over the world seek to make aliyah, aka emigrate, to Israel. Israeli emigration is regulated by the Ministry of Interior.
According to Israel’s 1950 Law of Return, Jews, their children, and their grandchildren are eligible for Israeli citizenship. Additionally, people can become Israeli citizens through marriage to an Israeli citizen, family reunification, and more. Many people also wish to come to Israel on a temporary work visa (B/1 visa), live in Israel longer-term by engaging in investment (B/5 visa), or coming on volunteer, tourist, or student visas, among others.
If you peruse our website, we provide numerous articles on all issues related to emigration and visas to Israel.
How to Choose an Israeli Emigration Lawyer
Israel is considered the leading country in the world in its lawyer per capita ratio, with about 1 out of 130 residents having a law license. However, many lawyers who are licensed by the Bar Association in Israel do not actually practice law.
Here are a few criteria we recommend that you consider when choosing a lawyer:
1. What is the lawyer’s area of practice? Lawyers in Israel are free to practice any type of law that they wish, and this can make it hard for people to know how to choose the best lawyer for their needs. At Cohen, Decker, Pex & Brosh, we have an excellent team of lawyers who specialize in numerous legal fields, including emigration law.
2. What is the lawyer’s level of experience? Our lawyers have over 50 years of experience in emigration law. While our office practices various types of law, emigration law is one of our leading specializations.
3. What language are you most comfortable communicating in? It’s essential to have good communication with your lawyer, thus ensuring that your lawyer speaks the language of your preference can help significantly. This will also help avoid miscommunication and misunderstanding with regard to important legal content in your case and the bureaucratic process.
4. What is your lawyer’s availability? It is important to make sure that the lawyer you choose has the time and availability to address your case on a timeline that is suitable for you. Lawyers have many cases, and if your case is urgent, but your lawyer cannot allocate time for it, you are likely to face significant frustration along the way. Make sure you and your lawyer can agree on a timeline for processing your legal needs.
