What are the requirements for becoming a naturalized citizen?

Are you considering pursuing American citizenship through the naturalization process? Although one would think that this type of legal change would be fairly easy to navigate, naturalization is anything but simple. Texas residents who think they are ready for the next step need to first determine whether they are eligible for naturalization. Then they begin the demanding process of obtaining citizenship. This is best accomplished with a knowledgeable attorney at your side because of the complexity and intricacies of applying for citizenship.

Immigration victims may not know about their rights

Did you know that U.S. immigration officials deported nearly 410,000 people from the country during the 2012 calendar year? In many cases, those deportees were removed because of criminal charges, but about 45 percent of those removed were not convicts. Further, a significant number of these deportees languished in immigration detention before they were officially released -- only to be turned away by U.S. authorities.

What steps are necessary to pursue a green card?

Texas residents who are looking to change their legal immigration status may not fully understand the rules and requirements for obtaining legal status. Immigration law can be very complicated, especially for those who are seeking a green card for the first time. The steps for obtaining a green card require preparation and care, so it is important to understand exactly what is required to obtain a change in legal status.

Immigration woes worsen with Affordable Care Act restrictions

Hundreds of thousands of immigrants who purchased health insurance through the Affordable Care Act stand to lose their coverage this month if they do not submit required paperwork proving their legal status. However, communications about this issue have been hindered, largely because of language barriers and technological woes. Even though the federal government sent out letters to attempt to notify those with immigration concerns, it appears that more than 200,000 immigrants stand to lose their coverage if they fail to comply.
