The New American Legal Clinic (NALC) is here to assist you with immigrating legally to the United States of America. NALC first will assess your current status to see if you are eligible for assistance. If you qualify, NALC will then recommend steps to take to obtain citizenship and advise you with each step.

Below are the three ways the NALC can help you with obtaining legal permanent residency and/or citizenship.

Naturalization Applications

If you are a Legal Permanent Resident (LPR), have been in the country for at least five years, and demonstrate good moral character, you have the option to become a citizen through the naturalization process.

Family-Based Immigrant Visas

If you have a spouse, child, or other family members who are citizens you could be eligible for a Family-based Immigrant visa.

U-Visas

If you are a non-citizen who suffers from substantial physical or mental abuse as a result of having been a victim of certain criminal activity, possess information concerning the criminal activity, and are helpful in the investigation or prosecution of the crime you may be eligible for a U-Visa.

These services are offered by appointment free of charge. Make your appointment today.
