Using the law offices of Spar Bernstein was the best decision immigration I ever made. The legal team that was assigned to my case were very helpful and professional. Paralegal Ilana Martinez was amazing. She went above and beyond the call of duty to help me. She is thorough and very knowledgeable, she was able to answer all my questions with patience and understanding. During the pandemic she was always reachable via telephone and she actually returned calls - how amazing is that??!! I am more than satisfied with the service she gave, she is the epitome of professionalism, Spar Bernstein is better for having her. I will admit that the process was not without bumps, I did have an occasion where myself and one of the lawyers on my team differed in opinions. However, in true professional form she allowed another team member to handle my concern. I found that to be very reassuring and graceful. Liran Shabtai, Kara Lawrence and Yuan Ho Kim (please forgive my spelling of this name) were three of the most helpful lawyers I have ever come across. They were able to explain very complex legal concepts in a manner that was very easy for me to understand. Allen, (the bald head man as he describes himself) was an awesome resource person who was also happy to help in even the smallest way. Overall my experience with Spar Bernstein was an awesome one. I would highly recommend them to anyone looking for a professional, knowledgeable team who have your best interest at heart. My only advice is to ensure that you ask all the questions you need to so that you get a thorough understanding of what you need and how best Spar Bernstein will assist you in achieving it. I’m sure glad I did. 😁

Donna A. was introduced to me on Monday and on Thursday I had successful resolution of my case after waiting 60 days for adjudication. Donna’s integrity was impeccable. She outlined exactly what she would do, she provided confirmation on completion and kept me abreast. Thanks Donna!

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.
