The primary immigration office in the US is known as the United States Citizenship and Immigration Services (USCIS) and is responsible for processing a variety of immigration applications, including those related to naturalization, the green card application process, and more. If you’re looking to take advantage of any of these services, you can do so directly through USCIS – you don’t need a lawyer to represent you. However, it’s always a good idea to get legal help if you have any questions or concerns about your case. Here is an overview of how the immigration office works and how we can help you at Puntier Law.
What services does USCIS offer?
USCIS is responsible for processing a variety of applications related to immigration, including applications for naturalization, green cards, and more. You can get the forms you need from the immigration office website. The website also offers a case status checker so that you can keep track of your application as it makes its way through the system.
The immigration office provides information
If you want to know what you need in order to qualify for immigration benefits USCIS has a lot of information available to the public. But only an experienced attorney can tell you what your best legal strategy to adjust your status can be based on your unique situation. Once you review the immigration benefits that USCIS it is best to consult with an experienced attorney at Puntier Law to really explore your best options.
An attorney can walk you through the process of applying for naturalization
While the first step to applying for naturalization does involve a simple form, there is a lot more to the process to consider. Once you fill out and submit Form N-400, which is the application for naturalization you will need to undergo a background check and interview. An experienced attorney can help you prepare for the process by addressing any issues that may come up in your background check and helping you prepare for a successful interview.
We know what the Immigration Office is Looking for
We have helped many individuals and families prepare for their interviews and can help you anticipate what they are looking for to give you a favorable review. For instance, at the interview, a USCIS officer will ask you questions about your application and test your English language skills. They are looking for specific indicators that show them that you are being truthful in your application and that you have a reasonable command of the language. You will also be asked to take a civics test to show that you understand the basics of how the government works. If you pass all of these requirements, you will be granted US citizenship.
Puntier Law can help you address any unique circumstances
The Immigration Office can seem daunting, but with Puntier Law on your side, we can make sure that everything goes smoothly. We have years of experience and have helped many of our clients with unique circumstances obtain things like, special accommodations for exams.

You don’t need a lawyer but you should have one
Even if you don’t anticipate any special needs or circumstances, you can benefit from having a lawyer help you with every form and process. Once an application is denied it is impossible to resubmit it so you really don’t want to risk making a simple mistake on a form. It can be helpful to have someone on your side who knows the ins and outs of the Immigration Office. Puntier Law can help you with everything from filling out your initial application to preparing for your naturalization interview.
