My lawyer Shannon and paralegal Johanna was excellent. They worked above and beyond for my family to stay together in the US and for me to get my green card. I wish I could put 10 stars . When other law firms told me to give up and that my case has no chance of any positive results. The law office of Spar&Bernstein believed in my case. They deserve so much more than 5 stars. Highly recommended. Thank you. Thank you . Thank you.

When others failed, Spar & Bernstein flawlessly delivered! The customer service has been excellent from the beginning I called for a consultation until my case was closed. I felt prioritized throughout the entire process! My case (removal of conditions through marriage) was meticulously handled where no interview was needed! I am excited and so relieved to have this case completed expeditiously. Thanks again Spar & Bernstein, you were certainly worth every penny!!

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.
