Attributes of dual nationality

Some California residents may want to know more about dual nationality. An individual may hold citizenship in two countries due to birth or marriage and be considered a dual national. In addition, a U.S. naturalized citizen may retain the citizenship of his or her former country. Automatic citizenship is granted when a child is born on foreign soil to parents who are U.S. citizens. Further, a U.S. citizen who marries a foreign national may automatically assume foreign citizenship in addition to retaining U.S citizenship.

Deportation study shows importance of legal representation

A new study on deportation hearings in California has demonstrated the importance of legal representation for immigrants. According to a study that was conducted in part by the Immigrants' Rights Clinic at Stanford Law School, immigrants who are facing deportation are three times more likely to be allowed to stay in the U.S. when they have help from a lawyer. The Northern California Collaborative for Immigrant Justice was also involved in the study.

Employment immigration assistance

A California employer may find that a non-citizen fits the needs of a company at times, and assistance with immigration issues may be important for ensuring that the prospective employee can be used in that role. You may need help in determining the best employment-based immigration visa for the position. You might also want an experienced professional reviewing applications to ensure that everything is as accurate and complete as possible.
