They are very good in regards to immigration issues. The immigration issue a particular lawyer was unable to do which I paid in full and did not refund my money. To God be the glory, I saw this lawyer on YouTube and I contacted him. I went to see him and charged him heavily, and the job was done and it was a happy ending. The particular lawyer that handled my case was very professional and hard working. I will recommend this firm to every individuals that have immigration issue.

Immigration Law FAQ

To apply for US citizenship, you must establish good moral character prior to your naturalization application.

USCIS may look at conduct beyond the one-, three- or five-year period to determine whether you have demonstrated reformed behavior from an earlier period.

If you were ever convicted of murder or if you were convicted of an aggravated felony after November 29, 1990, you are permanently barred from naturalization. Contact the knowledgeable immigration attorneys at Spar Bernstein who understand how criminal convictions may affect your naturalization.

Most naturalization applicants must be permanent residents for five years before being eligible to naturalize.

Spouses of US citizens and people who obtained green cards as abused spouses under VAWA (Violence Against Women Act) are eligible to naturalize after having their green cards for three years.

If you honorably served in the US armed forces for one year, you may be eligible to apply for naturalization.

You can file your naturalization application 90 days prior to reaching the required time frame. For example, if you are applying under the five-year rule, you may submit your N-400 application after being a permanent resident for four years and nine months and 3 days.
