One of the most rewarding experiences for an immigration lawyer is to see their clients become U.S. citizens. However, in many cases the naturalization process is not easy and straightforward as one would like. It takes a skilled attorney to handle the more challenging cases.
If you are over 18 years old and want to become a citizen you most likely will have to go through the naturalization process to become a U.S. citizen. You must fulfill one of the requirements below to be eligible for naturalization.
- You have permanent residence status for 5 years and you have lived in the U.S. for those five years
- You have asylum and you have lived in the U.S. for 4 years
- You are the spouse of a U.S. citizen and you have lived in the U.S. for 3 years
- You are a permanent resident, have served in the U.S. military, and have lived in the U.S. for 3 years.
If you have not received the results that you needed before the immigration judge, USCIS, or Board of Appeals please contact Sesini Law Group because you do have more options. Our attorneys have successfully argued complex legal issues before the Board of Immigration Appeals, various federal district courts and the Federal Circuit Court of Appeals. Most federal litigation appeals involve asylum, removal cases, unlawful detention cases, naturalization denials from USCIS and criminal issues.
On June 15, 2012, the Secretary of Homeland Security announced that certain people who came to the United States as children and meet certain guidelines may request consideration of deferred action for a period of two years. If deferred action is granted, then you will be eligible for work authorization. Deferred action for childhood arrival (DACA) does not provide lawful status. We can help answer all of your questions about this new program and whether or not you or your family members may qualify.
If you are in the United States and are afraid to return to the country you are from, you may qualify for asylum under US Immigration Laws. An affirmative application would start with US Citizenship and Immigration Services and can be decided very quickly. But even if you are in removal or deportation proceedings, you can still qualify for asylum defensively.
Winning asylum in the United States can be very complicated, because applicants must prove their case. This often involves in depth research into the country conditions from all around the world. Other cases require extensive legal briefing and careful arguments. But there are no guarantees, especially with complicated asylum cases. Our immigration lawyers at Sesini Law Group have a great deal of experience proving and winning asylum cases, and can guide you through this process from start to finish.
The E-1 and E-2 visas are categorized as treaty visas. The goal of treaty visas is to encourage trade between the United States and the treaty country. The E-1 visa is primarily granted to employees of enterprises, whereas the E-2 visa is granted to the investors of those enterprises.
These categories have several advantages. First, it is the only visa which allows a foreign national to be self-employed in the U.S. Moreover, E visas are issued up to 5 years and can be renewed and extended in five year increments as long as the qualifying activity continues. The principal applicant’s spouse and children of the investor will be admitted in the same category and eligible for employment authorization during the entire time of the E visa. Other advantages include the direct filing with the consular post and you do not need the approval of the USCIS; the ability to remain in the U.S. indefinitely; prior work experience or advanced degree is not required; and there are no statutory limitations to the number of E visas which can be issued. Contact Sesini Law Group to understand your knowledge of investing in the U.S.
Defending individuals in removal proceedings is a large part of our practice at Sesini Law Group. The attorneys in the office have years of experience working with the immigration court representing simple cases to quite complex removal issues.
Furthermore, our attorneys have successfully filed post-conviction relief motions in the State of Wisconsin for numerous clients which have resulted in either the dismissal of the criminal case or an amendment to a crime which allows our clients to file applications to stop deportation in the immigration courts. As a result, our attorneys have effectively caused hundreds of our clients’ immigration cases to be either terminated or caused the immigration judges to approve applications for relief from deportation.
