Am I Required to Hire an Illinois Immigration Attorney to Gain U.S. Citizenship?

Frequently Asked Questions For Our Immigration Attorney In Naperville, Illinois

Your specific immigration category will define the supporting documentation you need to complete the application. However, some of the most common elements that apply to everyone include, but are not limited to:

  • Identification Documents
  • Photographs
  • Proof of Eligibility
  • Financial Documents
  • Health Examination
  • Criminal Background Check
  • Affidavits and Sworn Statements
  • Family Relationship Documents

At Kasturi Law, LLC, our immigration lawyer in Naperville knows our clients are anxious to get through the legal process so that they can confidently move forward with their lives. However, the duration of the immigration process can vary widely based on several factors, including the type of immigration category, the complexity of the case, the specific immigration program or visa, and the caseload and processing times of the immigration authorities. We ensure each of our client’s applications is thoroughly submitted, cutting no corners, so our clients have the path of least resistance to obtaining legal immigration status. This process does not happen overnight, but we assure you it will be right from the start, and we will keep you updated during each step.

Yes, in certain circumstances, it is possible to change your immigration status while you are in the United States. Changing immigration status is known as “Adjustment of Status.” However, some visa categories may have restrictions, and individuals must meet specific eligibility criteria to be considered for a change of status. Our skilled immigration law attorney in Illinois will advise you as to whether your status change requires departing the U.S. and applying for a new visa or if other solutions fit your unique circumstances.

The ability to appeal depends on the type of immigration application denied. Not all immigration decisions are appealable. Some decisions may only be eligible for reconsideration or a motion to reopen or reconsider rather than a formal appeal. If your case is suitable for appeal, you will generally have the opportunity to file an appeal with the Administrative Appeals Office (AAO) or the Board of Immigration Appeals (BIA), depending on the type of case.

Motions to reopen or reconsider or appeals must be filed within a tight timeframe. Our dedicated immigration attorney can help you understand why your application was denied and how we can help you appeal that decision to pursue the best outcome for your unique circumstances.

Once your immigration application is approved and you become a lawful permanent resident (Green Card holder), you may be eligible to apply for U.S. citizenship through naturalization. The time you must wait before applying for naturalization depends on your circumstances. In most cases, the residency requirement is five years, but it may be shorter for specific individuals, like spouses of U.S. citizens. As your immigration attorney, advocate, and partner in this process, we will provide the naturalization details you need to choose your path going forward.
