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.
We represent spouses, children, and parents of U.S. citizens (over age 21) seeking immigrant (“green card”) status for relatives. We also represent U.S. citizens seeking K-1 fiancée nonimmigrant visas.

-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).
