Relentless Advocacy Grounded in Humility, Integrity, and Respect for All Clients
One of Attorney Jason J. Navarro’s main goals as a lawyer is to help ease the fear and overwhelming stress often imposed by the legal system. At our firm, we will always treat our clients with humility, integrity, and respect; we treasure the person-to-person relationship as much as the attorney-client relationship, especially when it comes to legal matters as daunting as immigration.
At Navarro Law, we handle several types of immigration issues for clients, including:
- Legal Permanent Resident Card renewals and replacements
- Applications for naturalization
- Naturalization Certificate replacements
- DACA applications and renewals
- FOIA requests
- FBI background checks
Legal Permanent Resident Card Renewals & Replacements
Legal Permanent Resident (LPR) cards, also called green cards, allow immigrants to live and work permanently in the U.S. At Navarro Law, we have experience helping clients navigate the LPR process, particularly with renewals and replacements. Some reasons individuals may seek to renew or replace their green card could be if:
- the green card is expired or will expire within the next 6 months;
- the previous card was lost, stolen, mutilated, or destroyed;
- they received their card before they were 14 years old and they have now turned 14;
- they were a commuter and are now taking up actual residence in the U.S.;
- they have been a permanent resident in the U.S. and are now taking up commuter status;
- their status has been automatically converted to permanent resident status;
- they have a previous version of the Alien Registration Card (which are no longer valid to prove immigration status) and must replace it with a current green card;
- the card contains incorrect information;
- they have legally changed their name or other biographic information on the card; or
- they never received the previous card issued to them.
Whatever your reason for renewal or replacement, our firm can help you file for a new green card. The process can be done online or by paper, and it may require up-to-date information regarding your case history and/or supporting documentation about your immigration status. We can help you collect the necessary documents and guide you through any subsequent steps before receiving the decision.

Naturalization is the federal process for immigrants to become legal U.S. citizens. In general, individuals are eligible to apply for naturalization if they meet the following requirements:
- are at least 18 years of age at the time they file the application;
- have been lawful permanent residents for the past 3 or 5 years (depending on the naturalization category);
- have continuous residence and physical presence in the U.S.;
- are able to read, write, and speak basic English;
- demonstrate good moral character;
- demonstrate a knowledge and understanding of U.S. history and government;
- demonstrate a loyalty to the principles of the U.S. Constitution; and
- are willing to take the Oath of Allegiance.
If you are ready to apply for naturalization in Gilbert, reach out to our firm for legal assistance in the process. We can help you gather all the necessary documentation (e.g., a copy of your green card) and prepare a strong application for you. We also help naturalized individuals obtain Naturalization Certificate replacements in the case that they lose the original certificate or need to update information.
Another immigration process we help clients with is the DACA application. To request DACA, individuals must at least 15 years old and:
- be under the age of 31 as of June 15, 2012;
- have come to the U.S. before reaching their 16th birthday;
- have continuously resided in the U.S. since June 15, 2007 up to present;
- have been physically present in the U.S. on June 15, 2012 and at the time of making the request for consideration of deferred action with USCIS;
- never have had a lawful immigration status on or before June 15, 2012 or any lawful immigration status or parole obtained prior to June 15, 2012 that expired as of June 15, 2012;
- currently be in school, have graduated or obtained a certificate of completion from high school, have obtained a general education development (GED) certificate, or are an honorably discharged veteran of the U.S. Coast Guard or Armed Forces; and
- have not been convicted of a felony, significant misdemeanor, or 3 or more other misdemeanors, and do not otherwise pose a threat to national security or public safety.
The application may require several forms of proof and documentation of the applicant’s status and background, such as proof of identity (passport, birth certificate with photo identification, immigration document, etc.), proof of immigration status, and proof that the applicant came to the U.S. before their 16th birthday. This might be in the form of an admission stamp on a passport or travel records. An experienced attorney can better help you collect the necessary information and protect your immigration status under a DACA request.
