Benicia Law Office Immigration Law Services
As an immigration attorney certified as a specialist by the State Bar of California, Geri has helped numerous individuals seeking asylum, visas, naturalization, and relief from removal. We advise individuals, businesses and employees, offering representation in front of agencies such as United States Citizenship and Immigration Service (USCIS), Executive Office for Immigration Review and Immigration and Customs Enforcement, as well as the U.S. Department of State.
A common goal for countless foreign-born individuals is to achieve U.S. citizenship through the naturalization process. With a complicated application procedure, working with a citizenship attorney can be the key to securing a positive application. Your attorney will advise on eligibility and ensure documents are completed in a timely manner to help you become a U.S. citizen.
Temporary Visa Applications
With over 20 different kinds of non-immigrant (temporary) visas of varying lengths of stay, such as fiancé visas, student visas, and work visas, many people will become overwhelmed with the process. For example, employment visas are subject to strict regulations and often long delays. By hiring an employment visa attorney like Geri, you are assured of both personal attention and a knowledgeable advocate to find the best solution for your particular circumstances.
Family immigration law uses various classifications to determine green card eligibility and also generally requires a sponsor. We help our clients understand the relevant categories and quotas, while assisting with filing petitions for each family member.
Geri and her legal team also work with clients who have experienced persecution in their home country and are seeking political asylum in the United States. An asylum lawyer plays an important role in helping individuals obtain the right to live and work in the U.S. without fear of future persecution.
There are many situations where immigration officials believe a person does not have the right to stay in the U.S. Factors like an expired visa, illegal entry and criminal charges can put an individual’s legal status at risk. In these circumstances, a Benicia removal proceedings lawyer can build a case to prevent removal.
Benicia Law Office Social Security Disability Legal Services
Many people with severe disabilities are unable to work full-time jobs. From our Benicia law office, we help clients apply for disability benefits and appeal claims that have been denied. A Social Security disability lawyer represents clients at every stage of a review, including initial applications, requests for reconsideration, hearings in front of an Administrative Law Judge, appeals to the Appeals Council, appeals to the U.S. District Court – and appeals to the 9th Circuit Court of Appeals.
One federal Social Security program available to those unable to work is Social Security Disability Insurance (SSDI). SSDI is available if an individual is prevented from completing substantial work activities and if they have acquired enough work credits to qualify. As a dedicated Benicia SSDI lawyer, Geri helps clients receive monthly payments that can be used for food, shelter and other necessities.
An alternative program that is not dependent on Social Security tax contributions is Supplemental Security Income (SSI). The SSI program provides monthly cash payments to vulnerable individuals with disabilities and minimal income.
