Defense against deportation
Residence Petitions by Family
Many Hispanic immigrants in the United States want to become U.S. citizens. If you have been a permanent resident for more than five years, or if your spouse is a US citizen and if you have been a permanent resident for three years, you may apply to become a citizen.
At the Law Offices of Manuel Solís, we not only help you with the necessary documentation, but also prepare you with classes for the Citizenship exam. Do not hesitate to contact us if you have been a Resident in the United States for more than five years (or three if you are a spouse of an American citizen) and want to naturalize.
In the offices of Lawyer Manuel Solis we can help you get a permanent residence in the United States thanks to the U Visa program. If you have been a victim of a crime in the United States and the crime has been reported to the police, we may be able to help you obtain a Permanent Residence for you and your family. Do not hesitate to contact us to study your case.
VAWA is a necessary protection for victims of domestic violence who do not have legal status in the country. With this protection, ICE cannot deport you, we can also help you obtain a Permanent Residence without your spouse making a request. The only requirement is that your spouse be a Resident or American Citizen and that you have reported the case of domestic violence to the police.
At the Lawyer's Offices, Manuel Solís can help you apply for VAWA protection if you are a victim of domestic violence.
If you have been in the country since before January 1, 1972, there is a law that says that you can obtain permanent residence without having any family member petition for it. In the law offices of Manuel Solís we can help you apply for your permanent residence if you meet the requirements for it.
Asylum is one of the ways in which a person who enters the country without papers can obtain permanent residence. If we can show that you are afraid of being persecuted or have already been persecuted in your home country, we can ask a judge to grant you asylum status in the United States, and thus get a work permit and subsequently become a permanent resident in the United States. Ask in our offices how we can help you in your asylum case.
Adjustment of status
The adjustment of status is one of the most common processes used to change immigration status without having to leave the country. If you already have a request made and you have reached the priority date on the visa bulletin, we can help you apply for Permanent Residence by this means if you qualify for it.
