While the application for citizenship is fairly routine, there are challenges that could prevent you from becoming a citizen of the United States. At Azinge & Associates, P.C. Law Firm, located in Houston, Texas, we help applicants with this process to avoid delays and other complexities an applicant may have. We serve the entire State of Texas, as well as representing clients nationwide and from many foreign countries. Our lawyers will assist you throughout the entire application and potential appeals process.
If you have a criminal record that includes misdemeanors, your application could be denied. A misdemeanor in criminal court can be deemed a felony in immigration court. Criminal issues can make you ineligible and even place you in deportation if you are a green card holder. At our firm, immigration lawyer Patricia Azinge works with criminal attorneys to address the criminal issues so that when at all possible they won’t affect immigration status.
Physically- and mentally-challenged individuals seeking citizenship face obstacles when they cannot get to the location to take the citizenship test. If they finally have that opportunity, they sometimes fail the test because of their disability. In those situations, we will seek to waive the test requirements by working with your medical provider to file the appropriate USCIS Medical Certification for Disability Exceptions forms.
At Azinge & Associates, P.C. Law Firm, we strive to help our clients overcome those obstacles and achieve their dream of citizenship. The benefits of citizenship and naturalization are numerous. You have the right to be an active member of American society with the right to vote, and are eligible for social services. In addition, you can become a green card sponsor for family members in other countries to reunite with you in the United States.
