Citizenship & Permanent Residency
More than one million people legally immigrate into the United States every year. If you are seeking permanent residence or US citizenship, working with an experienced immigration attorney is the most effective way to make it through the bureaucratic process.
The US citizenship application process is complex and extremely time consuming. Obtaining permanent residency or becoming a US citizen will require for you to meet certain qualifications and possibly wait for a long period of time. Even though recent immigration laws have made it more difficult to obtain citizenship, we are here to help you understand your options and maximize your chance at becoming a permanent resident or citizen.
Seeking Poltical Asylum
Asylum can be granted to refugees seeking a safe haven in the United States and are unable or unwilling to return or remain in their home country because of persecution or a well-founded fear of persecution based on race, religion, nationality, membership in a particular social group, or political opinion. When granted asylum, immigrants can apply to become legal residents and later citizenship.
Many factors affect your eligibility for Asylum. Even if you have been unable to seek Asylum in the past, recent changes in your home country can make you eligible for Asylum now.
