Immigration Assistance: Protecting Your Right To Stay In The United States

Obtaining or changing your legal status in this country is a difficult but worthwhile task. Status offers numerous advantages, including the ability to live and work in the United States with peace of mind.

An Ally With a Personal Understanding of the Law

At Casanova Law, we offer personalized representation for noncitizens and others in Lake Worth, West Palm Beach, Stuart, and all of South Florida seeking to change their status and protect their future in the U.S.

Our leading Attorney Lourdes Casanova comes from a family of immigrants. She has a unique understanding of the many issues facing our local communities in South Florida. And, unlike many attorneys, she is fluent in English, Spanish and Portuguese. She is extremely familiar with the challenges associated with immigration concerns.

You can rely on her to protect your interests as you pursue a beneficial outcome in matters pertaining to the following:

  • Completing naturalization forms for citizenship
  • Obtaining a green card
  • Deportation defense in immigration court
  • Seeking relief from the threat of deportation through Temporary Protected Status (TPS)
  • Applying for waivers to help you avoid additional penalties and setbacks

Green Card Renewal

Every ten (10) years, a legal permanent resident (LPR) must apply to renew his or her green card.

The process should happen sooner if the resident's name has legally changed or if the card was lost or destroyed.

While the application to renew or replace a green card is fairly straightforward, any small mistake could prevent or delay the issuance of a new card (which can also mean paying extra immigration fees).

Another possible obstacle to receiving a new green card is recent trouble with the law. If you have any doubts about the application or your chances of approval, it is extremely important to seek the help of our experienced immigration team.

Deferred Action for Childhood Arrivals (DACA)

In 2012, the Obama administration issued an executive order permitting certain people who came to the United States as children ("DREAMERS") to request temporary protection from deportation and permission to work. This short-term protection was called Deferred Action for Childhood Arrivals (DACA).

The Trump administration has eliminated DACA but has suggested the possibility of a more permanent solution for DREAMERS through the legislature.

If you came to the United States as a child, a lawyer from our office can explain your rights and options under the current status of the law.
