Green Card
SIG Global Immigration Lawyers Can Help You Obtain Your Green Card
Foreign nationals who are permitted to reside in the U.S. indefinitely are referred to as immigrants or lawful permanent residents("LPRs"). The document evidencing that one is an LPR is often referred to as a green card. LPRs are permitted to live and work in the U.S., and may travel in and out of the country relatively easily. An LPR is not a U.S. citizen, but may be eligible to apply for citizenship after maintaining residency for a certain period of time.

At SIG Global, our immigration lawyers can help you obtain your green card as quickly and efficiently as possible. Contact us today to begin the processing of becoming a legal permanent resident in the U.S.
Deportation
Removal/Deportation Defence
There are strict deadlines for raising a deportation or removal defense. Therefore, if you are facing deportation/removal from the U.S., it is important to consult with an immigration lawyer as soon as possible.

At SIG Global, our lawyers understand that there is nothing more serious for our clients than the prospect of being deported. Thus, we provide caring and aggressive representation for our clients who are facing deportation.

If you or a loved one are facing deportation or removal proceedings, contact us today so that we can help you stay in the country and resolve your immigration matter for good.
US Citizenship
SIG Global Immigration Lawyers Can Help You Obtain Your U.S. Citizenship

In most cases, an applicant for citizenship must have been a lawful permanent resident who has continuously resided in the United States for five years immediately preceding his or her application. Where lawful permanent residence was obtained through marriage to a U.S. citizen, only three years of continuous residence immediately preceding the application is required. An absence of six months or more breaks the continuous residence requirement unless the applicant has a reasonable explanation for the absence.

In addition to the continuous residence requirement, the applicant must have been physically present in the United States for at least half of the five to three years he or she was a legal permanent resident. Furthermore, the applicant must have been a resident for at least three months in the state in which the petition is filed and must be able to speak, read, and write in English.

At the citizenship interview, the applicant will be required to take a short test on the history and political system of the United States. The test may be waived for medical reasons. All citizenship applicants must present proof of having filed tax returns.

Our immigration lawyers have extensive experiencing helping individuals obtain their U.S. citizenship. Allow us to help you by contacting us today.
