Petaluma Marriage Adjustment Attorney

Dedicated Immigration Legal Counsel Serving the San Francisco Bay Area

It is a common misconception that marriage to a U.S. citizen will automatically grant U.S. citizenship to an immigrant spouse. However, this is not the case. A common complication exists for spouses of U.S. citizens who entered the United States without inspection. Like most issues concerning immigration, you must apply for permanent residency. This can involve extensive paperwork, documentation and an interview with immigration officials. At the Law Offices of Daniel E. Chavez, our Petaluma marriage adjustment lawyer can handle the entire application process and will work to make sure your application goes as smoothly as possible.

We have helped individuals and families with immigration matters throughout the San Francisco Bay Area for over 30 years. Contact our California marriage adjustment lawyer online or call our Petaluma office at (707) 775-4531 to schedule an appointment to discuss your situation. Se habla español
