US Citizenship and Immigration Services

uscis The U.S. Citizenship and Immigration Services (USCIS or CIS) is the agency which grants (or denies) applications for green cards, US citizenship and applications for extensions and changes of temporary status.

The CIS website provides thousands of pages of information regarding how to obtain immigration benefits.  However, the website is so complex that it is sometimes difficult to find the information that you are looking for.  We have spent many hours locating and linking to the most useful information on the CIS website.

We hope that the links below help you to find the information that you are looking for.

The CIS allows you to check the status of your case online, download all immigration forms without charge; determine the filing fees of immigration petitions and applications; explains immigration services and benefits programs; provides you with the functions, jurisdiction and contact information of each of the agency’s field offices; directs you to immigration laws, regulations and policies; and links to press releases, fact sheets and FAQs.

You can stay up-to-date with the waiting times in the Visa Bulletin and other immigration news by subscribing to our Free E-Mail Newsletter.

It Was Worth Every Penny

“Our experience with the Law Offices of Carl Shusterman began with a phone conference with Mr. Shusterman himself, which lasted about an hour. We were assigned to the team of Attorney Jennifer Rozdzielski and Ana Cruz. The situation was not an easy one, and it took about three years and a myriad of paperwork to resolve. We got to know both Jennifer and Ana very well in the process. They stayed positive and kept us on track with all the papers and forms and documentation required. I have to say that we were treated like family, and they were excited when we finally achieved our dreams. We are so glad we chose them – it was worth every penny!!”

- James Baker, Portland, Oregon
