Jacksonville Military Immigration Lawyer

Helping Military Personnel & Families with Immigration Benefits

If you are a military service member or have served in the military in the past, you and your family members have certain rights designated for the military under the U.S. Citizenship and Immigration Services (USCIS). You can exercise these rights to potentially achieve U.S. citizenship with the help of our Jacksonville military immigration lawyer.

The Law Office of Joanne M. Fakhre appreciates the service of our men and women in uniform. We deeply appreciate the sacrifices and dedication made by servicemen and women and their families in keeping our country safe, and we are proud to offer a free consultation and cost-effective and compassionate legal help to all military personnel who entrust us with their immigration needs.

Contact us for a consultation about your immigration rights as a military service member at (904) 447-1937. Consultations for service members are free of charge.

Military Immigration Rights & Benefits

Several immigration benefits exist for members and veterans of the Armed Forces and their families. For example, you may be eligible for expedited naturalization (citizenship). Recently enlisted non-citizens may be eligible to naturalize before completing basic training.

You may be eligible to apply for a green card for your spouse, children, and family members. Your spouse may be eligible to file for certain benefits while you are deployed overseas with proof of deployment/military papers. Immediate relatives of military personnel who died in combat may also be eligible for certain benefits.

These benefits are covered under USCIS as follows:

  • Naturalization through Military Service
  • Citizenship for Family Members
  • Family-Based Survivor Benefits
  • Discretionary Options for Military Members, Enlistees, and their Families

Discretionary options include:

  • Parole in Place, on a case-by-case basis for non-citizens of military personnel who are illegally in the U.S., allowing them to apply for a green card without having to leave the country
  • Deferred Action from removal (deportation)
  • Filipino World War II Veterans Parole allowing certain individuals to rejoin family in the U.S. before approval of their immigrant visas

Contact Ms. Fakhre to help you learn more about the requirements and procedures for any of the above programs. We can confer with you in person, by phone, or through Skype.

Your free consultation with our Jacksonville military immigration attorney is only a phone call away. Reach out to our office at (904) 447-1937 to get started.
