Citizenship Attorney

At the Law Offices of Gabriela Novo, we will review your current citizenship situation and carefully develop an individualized defense strategy for your case. Gabriela will stand by your rights and defend your case throughout the entire process.

Before applying for citizenship, you must prove that you have lived in the country with a green card for at least five years. If you are married to a U.S. citizen it will be reduced to three years. To qualify for citizenship, you must:

  • Have lived in the state or city for at least 3 months
  • Not spend more than 12 months outside of the U.S.
  • Be at least 18 years old
  • Have proof of permanent residency in the U.S.
  • Pass a reading, writing, and speaking test in English
  • Demonstrate knowledge of U.S. government and its history
  • Show that you have good moral character
  • Swear to obey all laws of the U.S.

A larger portion of our clients use the USCIS form known as N-400 (application for naturalization), though some use the N-600 (for individuals). Either way, we know how vital it is for you or your family to become a citizen and will do everything in our power to help you reach that goal.

    Asylum Attorney

    In the United States, asylum is granted to foreigners
    who are not able to return to their country due to
    persecution or a fear of persecution due to:

    • Race
    • Religion
    • Nationality
    • Membership in a social group
    • Political opinion

    When someone is facing persecution in their own country, their life and their families can be threatened. Political asylum is supposed to help and protect individuals and families facing persecution. It is supposed to help them feel safe and protected during their case. When a person is granted political asylum, they will be able to stay in the U.S. for an indefinite period until the situation is cleared up back home. The process to apply for asylum can be long and difficult, which is why you need legal assistance to achieve asylum as soon as possible. The Law Office of Gabriela Novo specializes in asylum cases and has helped countless individuals and family members.

    Family Immigration Attorney

    Many families are, unfortunately, split up all over the world by deportation or by choice, usually resulting in family members being sent to different countries. In these case, residency and citizenship is usually the culprit. When a family is split up due to residency or citizenship issues, it is crucial to resolve this issue and reunite these family members ASAP.

    A U.S. citizen or permanent resident can also sponsor family members for visas. There are two different types of visas available; Immediate Relative Visas and Family Preference Immigrant Visas. Immediate Relative Immigrant Visas may be issued to the following:

    • Unmarried child under 21
    • Foreign orphan legally adopted from another country
    • Foreign orphan legally adopted in the United States
    • A parent of a citizen who is 21 or older
    • Spouses

    For families facing immigration issues, the process can feel extremely daunting, especially in today’s economy. If you intend to bring a family member(s) to the United States, you need to contact an immigration lawyer like Gabriela Novo to handle this often gruesome legal process.

    Green Card Attorney

    If you are looking for permanent residency in the United States, then you will need to apply for a permanent alien registration card, best known as a green card. Green cards allow foreigners to live and work in the United States as they please. What most people don’t know is that there is a two year period before the applicant will be reviewed for their permanent residency visa. Once you get your visa it is eligible for 10 years and can be renewed pending a thorough check of your criminal and driving record.

    The process for attaining a green card can be cumbersome, and competitive, due to the limited number of green cards the government can issue. There are so many factors to be considered when applying for a green card. That’s why it would be wise to hire an attorney, like Gabriela Novo, to get you the green card you desire in a timely manner.
