Residency & Citizenship Program
If you are looking for assistance with your residency or citizenship application please come to one of our offices, during our walk-in hours, where for a $40 consultation. During your consultation you will meet with one of our attorneys and see if you are eligible for our services.
In the early 90’s I came to the United States fleeing violence in my country of Guatemala. I first worked with RAICES to process my asylum application, now, two decades later RAICES filed my citizenship application. This year I proudly took my oath as a United States citizen.
Over the years our staff has helped thousands of families file their residency and citizenship applications. These services are especially crucial to our community; according to recent studies Texas ranks 3rd amongst states with the highest number of citizenship eligible legal permanent residents. This places our organization in a unique position to be able to assist the nearly 930,000 eligible legal residents take the needed step to become a U.S. citizen. As a non-profit organization RAICES’ mission is to provide the community with affordable access to legal representation.
