How We Help You...
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.
Green Card Applications
Attaining a Green Card secures your legal permanent resident status (LPRs) and allows you to enjoy a variety of substantial benefits like the ability to work, attend school and sponsor family-based immigration petitions. Additionally, you will be protected by US law and avoid threat of deportation. Our attorneys will assist you in properly filing the initial Form I-485 with all necessary supporting documents. After submission, we will the monitor the status of your case and keep you updated.
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.
If aspects of your identity like race, nationality, political affiliation, religion or membership to a social group prevent you from staying in or returning to your country of origin safely, you are likely a strong candidate for asylum status in the United States. Our attorneys will review the details of your situation to estimate your eligibility, help you secure asylum status and provide counsel for attaining longer term residency or full citizenship.
Removal / Deportation Defense
We understand the high stakes and stressful nature of legal action that could potentially result in the removal or deportation of yourself or a loved one. Our team of attorneys have extensive experience litigating in formal courtroom settings in front of immigration judges. We will do everything within our power to keep you in the country.
Humanitarian Visas, TPS, and DACA
At Barrales Law, we explore every avenue available to get you legally into the United States or stay if you have already arrived. Humanitarian Visas, Temporary Protected Status (TPS) and Deferred Action for Childhood Arrivals (DACA) are just a few alternative methods for residency we may be able to apply to your unique set of circumstances.
