The Immigration Process

Anyone following the news knows that making sure your immigration status is secure and protected is vital to your livelihood and that of your family, and that has never been more true than right now. With various political forces pledging to increase enforcement of immigration laws and removing protections provided to immigrants, the time is now to make sure you are doing everything you can to achieve the proper documentation to keep you and your family in the US permanently with the full rights of citizenship. At The Law Offices of Omar Gastelum and Associates, PLC, we help individuals, families, and businesses throughout Los Angeles and Southern California to get the immigration protections they need.


Often, the first step in coming and staying in the US legally is to obtain a visa, based on your family connections, work skills, or other criteria. Our attorneys will work with you to determine what the best possible visa is for you or the person affected and take all steps to apply for and receive the proper visa in an efficient manner.

Permanent Residency / Green Card

If you are in the US temporarily on a visa or are outside of the country currently, you can apply for a green card which provides you with the benefits of permanent residency. You must have grounds to support your application for a green card, which can include being the spouse, parent, or child of a US citizen; a sponsorship from an employer; or through a refugee/asylum status. We will work with you to collect all required supporting documentation, file all legal documents, and take other necessary steps to support your green card application.

Citizenship Through Naturalization

To obtain the full benefits of citizenship in the US, you can convert a green card into citizenship through the naturalization process. This includes filling out a lengthy application for citizenship which will require supporting evidence and documentation, passing a citizenship test, and appearing before an immigration official to determine your eligibility. As with other aspects of the immigration process, our legal team will guide you through every step of the citizenship process to help build the life that you and your family are seeking.
