CITIZENSHIP

UNITED STATES CITIZENSHIP

Naturalization is the only way for an immigrant to become a citizen of the United States. Lawful Permanent Residency must have been acquired prior to applying for Naturalization. Additionally, an individual seeking naturalization must show proficiency in reading, writing and speaking English and demonstrate a solid understanding of the U.S. Government and its history.  

GREEN CARDS

Lawful Permanent Residency is the first step in becoming a Naturalized Citizen of the United States. In most cases, you are required to hold a Green Card for 3-5 years before you may apply to become a citizen. 

GREEN CARD REPLACEMENT

Any time a green card needs to be replaced, whether it be due to the card being lost, stolen, destroyed, a name has legally changed, the card has expired, or any other purpose, Form I-765 must be filed. 

ASYLUM LAW

Seeking Asylum involves both Affirmative (application to USCIS) and defensive (hearings before the Immigration Court). Asylum is granted to individuals who fear persecution for an immutable characteristic such as race, religion, gender, political opinion, or national origin. (Form I-589)

CONDITIONAL PERMANENT RESIDENCE

Occasionally, conditions are set on a green card for 2 years. Application must be submitted within 90 days before the expiration of the green card for removal of the conditions.
