Immigration Is A Complex Process

Whether you’re applying for a work permit or seeking a green card for a family member, immigration is a complex and sometimes frightening process. You need a skilled attorney who stays up-to-date on immigration law to guide you through the filing of documents, strict deadlines and ever-changing rules. In some cases, you may need a tireless advocate who is willing to fight for you and exhaust every possible solution to bring you or keep you here in the United States.

At Kelso Law, PLLC, we can assist you with a variety of immigration concerns, including:

  1. Family based green cards and fiancé visas
  2. Naturalization (citizenship)
  3. Work permits
  4. DACA – Deferred Action for Childhood Arrivals (“Dreamers”)

You need an attorney with the highest ethical standards and a true commitment and determination to obtain a positive outcome for each client. At Kelso Law, PLLC, we will give careful consideration to your unique situation and use our knowledge and experience to find the best option for you.

Work With A Proven Immigration Attorney

As attorneys with over ten years of experience helping immigrants become citizens, we understand what is out there and how vulnerable you may feel. You’ve heard rumors of unethical and predatory legal representation — of attorneys and notaries who take the money and then do nothing to help. Fortunately, these people are the minority. If somebody who is a notary public or notario publico says they can offer you legal representation with your immigration case, do not trust that person and do not pay them your hard-earned money. Rather, please consult with and hire a competent, licensed attorney.

When you come to us for help, we will do all we can to resolve your case in the most favorable manner. We can work together to explore every avenue, including, if necessary, filing appeals with the Board of Immigration Appeals (BIA) and the U.S. Court of Appeals. Our founding attorney is licensed to practice law in both state and federal courts and is prepared to explore all available options to bring a satisfactory resolution to your immigration case. We understand what is at stake in these cases and take it very seriously that you trust us to help with your future and the future of your family.

Understanding How To Become A United States Citizen

Now more than ever, green card holders need to understand one crucial thing: until you become a United States Citizen, you are at risk of being placed in a deportation proceeding. There is good news — in the last 10 years, the United States has gained over 7 million naturalized citizens. If you have held a green card for at least three years, you may be eligible to apply for your citizenship now.

Most green card holders need to hold their green card for five years before becoming a citizen. However, if you have had a green card for three years and have also been married to a United States citizen for the entire three years, you are eligible to apply early.

Children born abroad to at least one United States citizen parent may also be eligible to obtain citizenship through that parent, prior to turning 18 years old. Finally, a minor whose parent becomes a United States citizen before the minor turns 18 may be eligible to obtain citizenship through that parent.

Can I Work While My Immigration Case Is Pending?

Whether you are waiting on a green card, asylum, or are in a deportation proceeding, you may be able to get a work permit while waiting for the completion of your case. Having a work permit gives you a huge advantage in the United States: you may obtain a temporary Social Security card, a bank account, file taxes and build your credit profile.

The Trustworthy Help You Need With Your Immigration Case

With so much at stake you need the best help available to successfully navigate the immigration process. The rules are complicated and ever-changing.

In some cases, such as when loved ones are being detained by ICE and facing deportation proceedings, the system can be most unfriendly. However, with the right attorney – somebody who understands current immigration laws and processes and is passionately committed to doing everything possible to help each client – you have a real cause for hope.

When you come to us for help with your immigration concern, we will not take your hard-earned money and give you false hope. We will listen to the facts of your case, tell you what we can do and the options you have and give you an honest estimate of what the likely outcome of your case will be. Then, if you choose to proceed, we will work hard and exhaust all available options to resolve your case in the most favorable way possible.
