Green Card

Green cards are available through family, employment, special immigrant status, refugee or asylee status, human trafficking or crime victims, victims of abuse, and other nuanced categories. Speak with an immigration attorney to review your options.

As a United States Citizen, you can sponsor your spouse, unmarried child under the age of 21, or your parent if you are at least 21 years of age. A United States Citizen may also sponsor an unmarried son or daughter that is over 21 years old, or a brother or sister who is at least 21 years old.

​As a permanent resident (green card holder) you may sponsor your spouse, an unmarried child under the age of 21, an unmarried son or daughter 21 years of age or older.

What is adjustment of status?

Per USCIS, Adjustment of Status (AOS) is the process used to apply for lawful permanent resident (LPR) status when you are present in the United States. This is also known as applying for a green card. This means that you may get a Green Card without having to return to your home country to complete visa processing.

What is consular processing?

Per USCIS, once you have an approved immigrant petition and an immigrant visa number is immediately available to you, there are two ways to apply for lawful permanent resident status (a green card). If you are outside of the United States, you may apply at a U.S. Department of State consulate abroad for an immigrant visa to come to the United States as a permanent resident. This is referred to as consular processing.

US Citizenship

You may gain Naturalization after holding a green card for five years, have presence in United States, be able to read/write/speak English (some exceptions exist), have knowledge of United States history and government, and have good moral character.

If you married a United States citizen and received your green card through this connection, you may apply for Naturalization after three years.

We are often asked, do I need to renew my citizenship documents every couple of years?

No, once you receive your citizenship there is no requirement to renew.

What is your firm's point of view regarding clients educating themselves on legal issues?

We believe educating clients on their immigration situation is very important. It is for this reason that we offer free consultations.

If you do not understand your options, how would it be possible to accurately select your best choice.

Does your firm provide pro bono legal services or otherwise participate in your community?

Yes, we work with the community and nonprofit organizations to volunteer our knowledge to those who are unable to otherwise seek out assistance. We have worked organizations such as Catholic Charities, Sacramento Food Bank, McGeorge School of Law Immigration Clinic and the FUEL Network.
