Committed Attorney Guides People Seeking to Live in the United States
Organized Calabasas law firm provides sound representation to immigrants
People wishing to come to this country face a host of legal impediments to achieving legal status here. Saucedo Law Group in Calabasas is committed to guiding clients through the barriers to immigration. As a former U.S. Marine who served overseas, I understand the strong desire that drives people to seek to live in this country, and I will put all of my in-depth knowledge of the law to work on your case. My firm helps clients from Los Angeles, Ventura and surrounding counties in a variety of matters, including green card applications based on family or employer sponsorship, investment, business activity or another legal ground.
Efficient counselor advises clients in filing green card applications
Immigration to the U.S. is based on annual quotas, so there are waiting lists to get into the country. The main exception to this is applicants who are spouses or children of U.S. citizens. Otherwise, to obtain permanent residence you must have another family relationship here or a business relationship. To establish this eligibility requires providing proof of your family or employer sponsorship, your investments here or of other business activities in the country. Once you’ve provided that information, your green card application will be subject to multilevel review and can face multiple grounds for rejection. Besides rejections based on having a communicable disease, a criminal background or being deemed a national security concern, you might be rejected for insufficiencies in the application. I will advise you about your potential eligibility for a green card, assist you in filing the paperwork and work to help you avoid potential rejection.
Experienced lawyer helps immigrants understand naturalization rules
You may be eligible for naturalized citizenship if you:
- Have served in the U.S. armed forces
- Have been a permanent resident for at least five years and physically present in the country for at least 30 months before applying for citizenship
- Have been a permanent resident for at least three years, the spouse of a U.S. citizen and physically present in the country for at least 18 months before applying for citizenship
For each of these paths to citizenship there are additional eligibility requirements. You must be at least 18 years old, of good moral character and not have a criminal record. With a couple of exceptions for age and disability, you must know how to speak, read and write in English and be able to pass a U.S. history and civics test. Application fees are substantial, though they can vary based on age, military status, income level and other factors. I can explain all of the filing steps and help you through the process of potentially achieving citizenship.
Effective advisor counsels asylum seekers and refugees
To potentially get asylum, you must prove after arriving in the U.S. or a port of entry that you fear persecution in your home country for reasons that include religion, politics, nationality or race. Refugees must also show that they fear persecution for these reasons and then undergo a refugee interview while still living in their home countries or otherwise outside the United States. This is a dynamic area of immigration law. My firm will counsel you about and the specific process for obtaining legal status.
