I cannot say enough good things about this law firm. Brad Bernstein and his staff have been more than wonderful in their handling of our AOS case. My case was particularly difficult. We were denied twice before coming to Spar and Bernstein. Shannon (One of the partners at the firm) gave me the best advise after representing us via phone conference at our interview . She said "live your life like you're meant to be here". She's amazing. The entire staff is amazing. I would highly highly recommend this firm and these persons to anyone applying for an immigration benefit. Do Not try to do these processes without a qualified and experienced attorney and you'll find both at Spar and Bernstein. To Brad, Shannon and the rest of the staff. Keep up the great work. Five Stars. God bless

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.
