Yacub Law Offices Serves Clients in the DC Metro Area & Beyond

Family unification is a pillar of U.S. immigration law and statutes have been enacted for United States citizens and permanent residents to petition their spouses, children, parents, and siblings. Yacub Law Offices is unique in our willingness to handle these complex legal matters. Our attorneys help clients litigate family-based petition cases. We can advise them in matters regarding same sex marriages. We’ve also advanced and pursued the issue of whether children who obtained their green card under the Special Immigrant Juvenile Status (SIJS) program and now are United States citizen to petition for their parents.

Our Rockville family immigration lawyers are committed to litigating and advancing the rights of immigrants nationwide. Call (703) 552-5051 or contact us online to schedule an initial consultation.

Marriage-Based Petitions

United States citizens or lawful permanent residents may petition for their respective spouses to live in the U.S. It is important to work with an experienced attorney in these matters, as there are numerous issues that may affect your specific matter. For example, if the noncitizen is in removal proceedings when the petition is filed, it is important to submit overwhelming documentation that the marriage is valid and not entered for immigration benefits.

The standard of proof is lower if the noncitizen is not in removal proceedings. In both cases, our trained lawyers and paralegals treat each case with the importance it deserves and documents each case extensively.

It is particularly important to present a well-documented case in a marriage-based petition. A finding of marital fraud can be the death knell to an immigrant’s lawful stay in the United States. Prior to filing, every case must be well-documented and the couple must provide a convincing narrative. Our Rockville family immigration lawyers can help you create a comprehensive case to petition for your spouse.

Petitioning on Behalf of Children

The concept of filing a petition for a child, at first blush, may seem straightforward, however, just like many other areas of immigration law, there are a number of complexities that can arise to slow or even put a complete stop to your case.

On the surface, any parent who is a permanent resident or a United States citizen can petition for his or her child to reside in the United States. The statute defines who qualifies as a child, depending on whether the parents were married at the time of the child’s birth. Also, the burden for proving that a child born out of wedlock is the son or daughter of the mother, under the statute, is less burdensome than the father.

The lawyers at Yacub Law Offices have argued this issue and have experience working with parents who are interested in bringing their children to the United States.
