Voted as One of the Best Immigration Lawyers in Austin, TX

About Our Firm

Our Austin immigration law firm specializes on representing U.S. citizens seeking permanent resident status for their spouses, parents, and children and on seeking U.S. citizenship (naturalization) for people who already hold green cards.  We often handle cases to remove two year “conditional” limits from green cards obtained through marriage.   We frequently represent applicants who need to renew or replace expiring, lost, or stolen green cards.    Other family sponsored matters we handle include adjustment of status, consular processing for relatives needing green card interviews at U.S. consulates abroad, K-1 fiancée visas, and reentry permits for green card holders needing to temporarily reside/work overseas.  We obtain temporary work permits (“EADs”) and travel permits (“advance paroles”) for our adjustment of status clients.  We also represent many DACA recipients to seek renewals. 

At this time our firm is not handling visitor, student, H-1B, H-2, E-1, E-2 treaty investor/trader visas, EB-5 immigrant investor cases, L-1, O-1 nonimmigrant visas, asylum, or removal (deportation) defense.

Citizenship

-Most people become U.S. citizens by: Birth within the United States, birth abroad to a U.S. citizen parent, or naturalization within the U.S. after first having immigrated. Additionally, any child under the age of 18 with green card status who is residing in the custody of a biological parent who is a U.S. citizen will also acquire U.S. citizenship due to the Child Citizenship Act (CCA) passed by Congress in 2000. A person may be eligible for naturalization if he/she has resided in the United States for at least 5 years as a permanent resident (or 3 years if married to and living with a U.S. citizen spouse).

This is why I love my job. Our client, Lydia Aragon, came to the U. S. from Belize 20 years ago. Due to our immigration laws she could not return and most of her family could not enter the U.S. to visit. I just got to hand Lydia her permanent residency “green card.”  She’s thrilled over the moon that she can now return to Belize to visit two adult children and to meet for the first time her four grandchildren!  🇧🇿 🇺🇸

Ten pro bono consultations completed this morning for aspiring immigrants & their families.  There’s a great need for understandable, reliable information about our country’s immigration laws. By coincidence the last sweet couple reminded me I’d immigrated them 28 years ago. They’ve been together for over 56 years!  🇲🇽 🇺🇸
