Immigration & Naturalization

Establishing Citizenship through N-400 Naturalization

Although the logistics of establishing who is already a U.S. citizen and who is eligible to become a U.S. citizen is a very complicated, the general criteria is straightforward. Citizenship can be proven or obtained in a variety of ways, including:

Being born in the United States.
Being born abroad to at least one parent who is an American citizen.
Through automatic acquisition of U.S. citizenship after birth but before the age of 18.

Deportation & Removal

In Beaumont and throughout Texas, there are a number of ways an individual could trigger a deportation or removal case. Often times due to the number of possible offenses, many individuals do not even realize that they have done something to risk their green card until they hear so in court.

The following offenses can result in deportation:

Criminal conviction, including for felonies, misdemeanors, and infractions
Immigration violations, including prior deportations, immigration fraud, or smuggling
Homeland security crimes, including espionage, sabotage, or treason and sedition-related crimes

There are several options available to those facing deportation. Both non-permanent residents and those holding a green card are eligible to seek a cancellation of removal.  There are however, a number of pre-requisites that are required before the process can be started.

For permanent residents, this includes having lived in the U.S. for at least seven years, having no felony convictions, and having been a lawful resident for five years or longer.

Temporary resident immigrants, on the other hand, can seek a stay by having no deportable convictions on their record, demonstrating an extreme hardship that would result for their deportation, and having lived in the U.S. for 10 years or longer.

It is also possible stop or delay deportation with asylum protection, if you have reason to believe you will be persecuted in your home country, or through an Adjustment of Status, if you have a visa, permanent resident status, and an employer or family member who petitions the immigration judge on your behalf.

Immigration Customs Enforcement (ICE) Holds

Without the proper legal representation, when placed on ICE or immigration hold in Beaumont, you can be detained for days or weeks without a bond hearing scheduled. This can cause problems with both family and work and is why it’s important to hire an attorney who understands the ICE Hold process and can navigate the legal system effectively.  The Law Firm of Galmor, Stovall & Gilthorpe has the resources and professional experience to ensure that your case is handled as efficiently as possible so you can return to your family and work.

The firm obtains asylum for individuals from countries across the globe and are experienced in handling complicated asylum issues related to firm resettlement, late asylum filings subject to the one-year bar, and credibility.

If  you are afraid to return to your home country you may be able to obtain lawful status in the U.S. through a grant of asylum. Asylum may be granted if your fear is based on your race, gender, religion, nationality, sexual orientation, political beliefs, membership in a particular social group, and possibly domestic abuse.

To discuss your eligibility for asylum with a Beaumont immigration lawyer, contact our firm by calling (409) 832-7757.

Immigration Appeals

Decisions made by judges in the federal immigration courts are subject to appeal, like any other type of court decision in the United States judicial system. If you have been ordered to return to your home country, denied asylum, denied an application for a visa, or denied cancellation of removal, an appeal to the Board of Immigration Appeals Office (AAO) is your only option.

At the Law Firm of Galmor Stovall, PLLC, our immigration attorneys are often called on to file immigration appeals in Beaumont and the Southeast Texas area. We can help you overturn an unfair ruling that jeopardizes your immigration status, even if you did not hire our firm to represent you in the initial immigration process.

Immigration Visas
