Immigration law is an incredibly complicated process. Your chances of success increase exponentially when you have an attorney to represent you and your family in U.S. Citizenship and Immigration Service or immigration court.
If you are a United States citizen, you may file an immigration petition for your parent, sibling, spouse, fiancé, and adult or minor child. The U.S. Citizenship and Immigration Service also accepts petitions from adoptive or step relationships, although certain restrictions may apply. Permanent residents (who hold a green card) may also submit an immigration petition, although they may qualify for fewer categories when petitioning for family members. We recognize that each family and case is unique, and we are dedicated to ensuring that your family’s rights are best represented.
At De Castroverde Law, we can assist you in many family immigration matters, including:
With recent changes to immigration policy, family-based applications are taking longer to accomplish and can be a confusing process.

Additionally, our experienced attorneys can help you ensure the forms you’re offering are completed and accurate. We will also thoroughly prepare the applicant for their interview with immigration, ultimately determining whether they will get their green card.

One common type of immigration is family-based immigration. This occurs when one family member already lives in the United States lawfully, and another family member uses his or her relationship as a basis for immigrating to the U.S. There are two different types of immigration that are considered family-based:
The United States allows people with certain valuable skills to immigrate either temporarily or permanently to the United States. Permanent employment-based immigration allows 140,000 people per year to come the United States. That number is broken up into various subcategories. As for temporary workers, there are more than twenty different types of visas depending on what sort of work a person will be doing here and what the duration of that work is.
Refugees and asylees make up a portion of those who immigrate to the United States. These people are typically fleeing persecution in their home countries or are unable to return to their homeland due to some sort of extraordinary or life-threatening condition. Each of these programs has strict requirements depending on an individual’s situation.
In order for a person to become a United States citizen, he or she must have had his or her green card for at least five years. Under certain limited circumstances, this can be decreased to three years for certain applicants. A naturalization applicant must also be at least 18 years old, be able to demonstrate continuous residency, prove his or her good moral character, pass citizenship exams, and pay application fees in addition to other possible requirements. There are special rules that apply to members of the U.S. military who are seeking citizenship.
