How We Help You...

Family-based Immigration Petitions

Family-based Immigration Petitions

One of the most effective routes to legal permanent resident status (LPRs) in the United States is through family-based immigration petitions. This process allows current citizens who are over the age of 18 and have a domicile in the country to sponsor members of their immediate family for residency. In this context, immediate family members can include spouse, unmarried children under the age of 21, adopted children and parents of a US citizen who is at least 21 years old.

U.S. Citizenship and Naturalization Applications

Once you have received a Green Card, you can begin the process of becoming a naturalized citizen of the United States. We assist you in every aspect of the process, including drafting your Form N-400 as well as preparing you for your interview and to take the Oath of Allegiance. This will enable you to exercise freedoms like the securing citizenship for your children born abroad, petition for family-based immigration, vote, run for office in local and state elections, travel with a U.S. passport, apply for various federal jobs and more.

Consular Processing

When you apply for citizenship to the United States from your home country, your local U.S. embassy or consulate handles the approval process. This is known as consular processing. We have extensive experience determining which specific course of action our clients should take based on their unique circumstances to effectively navigate this highly nuanced process.
