Immigration Litigation:


Delayed Citizenship and Other Applications


For a multitude of reasons citizenship/naturalization applications can become stalled, leaving the applicants waiting for years without their citizenship. The same is true for family petitions, Green Card applications, fiance(e)/spouse visa applications, etc. Often this is the case because an applicant’s background checks have not been completed. In other instances, the U.S. Citizenship & Immigration Services has lost or misplaced the file.

Often, the only way to overcome these obstacles is to file a Mandamus lawsuit; in effect, to force the Government to make a decision. Virginia Immigration Attorneys at The Law Offices of Lewis & Associates have now filed a substantial number of lawsuits in U.S. District Courts in Virginia and Maryland. In every case, the Firm has been able to obtain the benefit our client was seeking. We can help you whether you live in Virginia, Maryland, or Washington, D.C., or, really, anywhere else in the United States.
