Relatives of Texas Military Personnel Benefit from Immigration Legal Counsel
Houston, TX (Law Firm Newswire) April 12, 2011 - Last year, more than 11,100 military personnel became U.S. citizens. This is the largest number of naturalized since 1955, the Department of Homeland Security’s Office of Immigration Statistics reported.
Current members of the U.S. armed forces and recently discharged members can seek expedited application and naturalization. Many spouses and unmarried minor children are also eligible. Army, Navy, Air Force, Marine Corps, Coast Guard, and specific individuals in the National Guard and the Reserves can also qualify.
In Texas where there so many military bases, an experienced immigration attorney can help with every aspect of the naturalization program, including applications, interviews, and coordinating with family still overseas. Service members will want to apply after a minimum of one year of service, and be sure to apply when still with the military or a maximum of six months after leaving the military honorably. An immigration attorney is especially important for extended family who want to immigrate to the U.S., or for spouses who are in the U.S. but want to change their residency status. Citizenship for surviving spouses, children, or parents of deceased service members who passed away during military service will also benefit from legal counsel.
“Military personnel that fight for the American ideals that are not from this country truly are an inspiration,” said Houston immigration lawyer Annie Banerjee. “Immigrants have shaped our nation’s history and they and their families deserve to have citizenship.”
Expert legal counsel will assist individuals and families with all the necessary forms and ensure they are effectively completed. Attorneys will help with compliance with the Immigration and Nationality Act and track the status of forms and deadlines with the U.S. Citizenship and Immigration Services office. They will also prepare clients for the English language and history requirements.
