Immigration Status And Family Law

There are several ways your immigration status and family law are related. Among the more common considerations are obtaining citizenship through marriage and laws regarding citizenship through birth. At The Law Offices of Fernando Alvares, many of our family law cases are tied to immigration.

These cases can be simple and straightforward divorce proceedings, or more complicated matters. We have more than 10 years of experience working with all kinds of family law cases from divorce to child custody and child support. We work with clients in Houston and throughout Texas, and are especially skilled in assisting clients who are working on citizenship or are concerned about being deported in relation to their family law proceedings.

Common Misconceptions About Immigration Status And Family Law

Many people think they cannot get a divorce or are not entitled to child support if they have not obtained citizenship. This is not the case. Even if you are in the country illegally, you still have the right to file for a divorce or get child support from your (former) spouse.

These cases can get very complex, especially when families are divided between countries. Sometimes children or the spouse you are trying to divorce are living in a different country. Or you may be trying to leave a previous marriage in order to marry a new partner in the United States. Whatever the situation, an experienced lawyer like Fernando Alvares can help.
