Navigating the complexities of U.S. immigration law, our firm recently had the opportunity to assist a client in transitioning from an asylum seeker to a lawful permanent resident through marriage to a U.S. citizen. This case exemplifies the seamless integration of different immigration pathways.

Journey from Asylum to Green Card

Our client arrived in the United States and filed for asylum. During the pendency of their asylum case, they entered into a matrimonial union with a U.S. citizen. Recognizing the shift in their immigration status, our team promptly assisted with their green card application under the marriage-based category.

Efficient Approval Process

The application process was smooth and expeditious. To our client’s relief, the case was approved by the United States Citizenship and Immigration Services (USCIS) without the need for an interview, a testament to the thoroughness and accuracy of the application prepared. The client was granted U.S. permanent residency, marking a significant milestone in their life.

“It is with the utmost enthusiasm that I recommend this law firm to anyone who needs help with immigration in the Buffalo area. The level of professionalism and knowledge has marked me. With the help of Rachael Sparacino, one of the attorneys in the firm I was able to get my permanent resident card in less than 4 months. It was such an amazing experience working with them. They’re tremendously helpful. Merci beaucoup pour votre assistance.”


This case is a powerful illustration of how legal expertise can profoundly impact individuals’ lives, transforming their status from asylum seekers to permanent residents. It underscores our law firm’s dedication to providing exceptional immigration services and support to those in need.
