For many of our immigration clients, keeping their families together is their most important concern. However, because federal immigration laws are complicated and often unforgiving, some family members may be prohibited from staying in the United States. A past criminal conviction, unlawful presence in the country or a weak application may leave a family separated by borders.
At Garibay Law Office LLC , we advocate on behalf of individuals and families pursuing immigration to the United States. We have assisted parents, children, spouses and fiancé(e)s trying to unite under immigration laws.
To file a family-based visa petition for a relative, you must be a U.S. citizen or a lawful permanent resident. Petitioning for family-based immigration is a complicated process, and it helps to have the insight and advice of a qualified family-based immigration attorney to strengthen your petition and help your family overcome any obstacles.
Many visa petitioners face problems when they have unlawfully lived in the United States. In some cases, a waiver from the USCIS can pardon the unlawful presence and allow the relative to stay in the country.
If you or a relative is a legal permanent resident with a green card, the next step to becoming a United States citizen is naturalization. To qualify for naturalization, you must meet certain requirements involving your physical presence in the country, language ability, moral character and performance on the naturalization test.
Our lawyers have guided many people through the naturalization process and helped them pursue citizenship. We are proud to help keep families together as they pursue their dreams under federal immigration laws.
