August 14, 2020

immigrationThe arrival of COVID-19 in the U.S. sometime in the early part of 2020 caused problems in many areas of the nation with Florida being particularly hard hit by the arrival of the virus. COVID-19 has caused many businesses and offices to close for some or all of the time of the outbreak with The Law Office of Robert Eckard & Associates seeking to keep its clients informed on the changes taking place in the immigration sector.

By the middle of July 2020, the number of Coronavirus cases in Florida had topped 370,000 with more than 5,000 confirmed deaths. The implementation of social distancing and face mask rules has changed the way the world looks and the refocusing of the priorities of the USCIS have made it difficult for immigration cases to move forward in their usual manner. Every immigration attorney Tampa Florida has been inundated with calls and messages from concerned clients regarding their cases.

The closure of the U.S. borders made the problems facing the majority of people facing immigration issues more difficult because they have largely been unable to converse with their attorneys. Each Tampa immigration attorney has faced the challenges of the arrival of COVID-19 in their own office. The switch from face-to-face meetings to video chat options that can often be challenging for both the attorney and their client.

Among the most important aspects of the fighting of a case with an immigration lawyer in Tampa is the onset of symptoms associated with COVID-19.
