Citizenship in the United States
Citizens of the United States can live and work in the U.S. permanently and will be protected from losing their status if they pursue extensive traveling abroad. Other benefits of obtaining citizenship include the ability to vote in U.S. elections and petitioning for permanent residency for relatives. Contact our firm for representation through the process.

Would highly recommend Rebekah and the Rodriguez Law Office to anyone in need of an immigration lawyer, and have already recommended her to several friends! She took time with our family and made sure we knew all of our options moving forward and explained everything clearly and simply. We felt cared for when working with her and could feel it was more than just a business transaction because of how deeply she cared and how happy she was when she congratulated us at the arrival of our residency. 10/10 recommend.
The Rodriguez Law Office was the best choice for our family. Any questions we had were answered promptly and any help we needed was provided. I cannot express how thankful we are for Rebekah and Casey. They both went above and beyond to make sure we were taken care of every step of the way. I would recommend the Rodriguez Law Office highly and would absolutely use them again in future- Katy
