For applicants who are presently “inadmissible” to the United States, such as individuals who have had prior immigration violations, have a contagious diseases, or a criminal history, he or she may need to apply for waiver of that ground or grounds of inadmissibility.  We have been very successful in obtaining waivers on behalf of our clients.  Our Manchester Immigration Attorney has a proven track record in obtain the approval of waivers of grounds of inadmissibility.

Naturalization:

 

For most of our clients, obtaining United States Citizenship is their ultimate goal.  Lawful permanent residents who are eligible to apply for admission to citizenship may do so through naturalization proceedings. Other foreign nationals actually become U.S. citizens automatically by being born outside the United States to one or more U.S. citizens. Some foreign nationals acquire U.S. citizenship through the naturalization of one or both of their parents.
