JVS Immigration Services seeks to help reunite families and strengthen our diverse community. Our program is accredited by the Board of Immigration Appeals.
Our bi-lingual (English/Spanish) immigration counselors work one-on-one with all refugees and immigrants to complete family-based immigration applications, applications to adjust to permanent resident status, and naturalization applications. We also assist with applying for some humanitarian-based immigration benefits.
Our citizenship services provide assistance navigating the naturalization application process to elderly or disabled individuals, or individuals that have a medical condition which prevents them from learning the required material to pass the traditional naturalization exam.
Our services include
- Immigration consultation
- Immigration form preparation and online submission of documents and payments
- USC or LPR Petition for a family member
- Fiancé petitions
- Employment Authorization Document (EAD)
- Refugee/asylee petitions
- Refugee/asylee adjustment of status
- Adjustment of status through other available immigration benefits
- Re-entry permits/refugee travel documents
- Registration for Temporary Protected Status
- Deferred Action for Childhood Arrivals
- Naturalization applications for adults and minors entitled to citizenship through parents
- Legal representation by a Board of Immigration Appeals accredited staff member in front of the United States Citizenship and Immigration Services (USCIS) only in connection with an application for immigration benefits.
