Dedicated Attorney for Military Immigration in Fort Walton Beach, Panama City, and Pensacola, Florida
In gratitude for your service, let our immigration attorney and his team serve you
The freedoms Americans enjoy are due in no small part to the courage and sacrifice of men and women in our armed forces. Southern Star Immigration appreciates the hardships active-duty personnel and their families endure, and wishes to assist whenever a service member requires our services. We also recognize the contributions that foreign nationals make to our all-volunteer military and eagerly assist them and their families with their immigration law needs. Finally, we help nonmilitary civilian contractors receive immigration benefits to which they are entitled.
Help in the Southeast and throughout the United States
Southern Star is fortunate to have offices located near the military installations we serve frequently, including:
Military personnel who may be concerned that a transfer or deployment might send them out of our geographic area should rest easy. Because immigration law is federal, Southern Star Immigration can represent your family and you no matter where you are.
Special consideration for service members regarding marriage and green cards
Occasionally, members of the armed forces discover that their spouses have immigration that might cause removal. But under certain circumstances, spouses of U.S. citizens in the military may be eligible for expedited "parole in place." This special provision of federal law allows the Department of Homeland Security to permit immediate family of service members to apply for green cards even if they entered the U.S. unlawfully. This process avoids need for a waiver of inadmissibility, but it is very discretionary. The experienced attorney and his team at Southern Star Immigration provide vigorous representation to prevent military families from being separated.
Citizenship for military members and their dependents
Since September 11, 2001, members of the U.S. armed forces have been able to apply for expedited citizenship under provisions in the law for "qualifying service during periods of hostilities." Service members can apply for this expedited citizenship while stateside or overseas. Military spouses may also be eligible for expedited naturalization if they are living abroad with their spouse on an accompanied tour. Foreign spouses of military personnel serving overseas may be naturalized without being required to travel to the United States. The law allows certain residence abroad to fulfill the requirements of U.S. residence and physical presence for naturalization purposes.
Family-based survivor benefits for relatives of military personnel killed in action
Close relatives of U.S. citizens killed in combat may be eligible for immigration benefits for up to two years following the service member's death.
