Benefits of Working with

a Spanish Speaking Lawyer


Working with Spanish speaking lawyers provides an array of benefits for Hispanic immigrants seeking legal assistance. Navigating the inherent complexities of the U.S. immigration system can be challenging. Attempting to do so with a lawyer who does not speak your language only makes the process that much more difficult. You deserve to speak in your own voice and in your own language during your immigration process. This is why you should retain the services of a law firm composed of experienced and knowledgeable Spanish speaking lawyers.

Obtaining a Green Card


Obtaining a Green Card (also referred to as lawful permanent residency) is an important step in the legal journey to secure permanent resident status in the U.S. There are multiple paths for obtaining a green card. Each path has its own set of requirements, application procedures, hurdles, and potential pitfalls. The two most common pathways are applying for a (i) family-based Green Card or a (ii) humanitarian-based Green Card. Let’s take a look at each.

Family-Based Green Card

It is possible to obtain a Green Card from being sponsored by a family member. Basically, if you have a relative who is a U.S. citizen or a lawful permanent resident, they may have the ability to sponsor you for a family-based Green Card. The following immediate relatives have priority when it comes to applying for a family-based green card. Immediate relatives include:

  • Spouse;
  • Parent; and/or 
  • Unmarried children under 21 years old

In addition, other relatives – including siblings and married children – may also be eligible but may face longer wait times.

Humanitarian-Based Green Card

Along with a family-based Green Card, there is the option to apply for a humanitarian-based Green Card.  This type of Green Card is generally available to immigrants involved in specific types of situations. For example, you may be able to qualify for a humanitarian-based Green Card while seeking asylum in the U.S. Typically, asylum is available to immigrants who have fled from their country of origin due to past persecution, and are looking for refuge in the U.S.

Another example of a humanitarian-based Green Card is a U visa.  This type of visa allows victims of certain crimes to report the incident to law enforcement without fear or concern of a subsequent investigation into their own activities or immigration status. In addition, if you assist law enforcement in an investigation (typically by filing a police report), then you may be able to apply for a U visa.

Regardless of which pathway you choose, the Green Card application process can be challenging and involves an array of procedural hurdles, including filing various forms, undergoing a background check, participating in interviews with U.S. immigration personnel, and providing supporting documentation and evidence. This is where a Hispanic immigration lawyer can step in and take some of the burden off your shoulders.
