In the world of U.S. immigration law, numerous paths lead to permanent residency. One such provision, often overlooked but incredibly valuable, is Section 245(i) of the Immigration and Nationality Act (INA). At Luqman Law, we are proud to support our clients in their journey towards securing a green card under this provision. Here’s a look at how we do it and the requirements involved.
In the diverse and dynamic world of law, few stand out as strongly as Attorney Devin Luqman of Luqman Law. Known for his specialization in immigration, criminal defense, and personal injury, Devin has been a beacon of hope and a pillar of justice for countless individuals.

Advance parole is a discretionary benefit that may help you maintain your status and pursue your goals in the U.S. However, it is not a right or a privilege, and it does not change your immigration status or grant you any additional rights or benefits. You should consult with an immigration attorney before applying for advance parole and before traveling outside the U.S.
Our client can now attend college and provide for himself and his family as he waits for his green card, with his work permit now available for Special Immigrant Juvenile Visas.
The Diversity Immigrant Visa program—a.k.a. the green card lottery—is a government lottery program for obtaining U.S. Permanent Residence (green card). The program makes 50,000 visas available yearly to applicants from countries with low rates of immigration to the United States and with specific education qualifications. It provides an inexpensive and relatively simple path to a green card, without needing sponsorship from a U.S. employer or family.
When our client is fluent in English, with Farsi as the language, he first learned and spoke for much of his life in Iran, and he would study and take practice tests in English and get all the questions correct. During the interview, he could not repeatedly answer the same questions he had practiced in English! We were aware that our client was not understanding the questions and the answers because the questions involved many words that our client did not understand. We provided our client with practice tests and practice videos in Farsi, our client's native language. When he prepared that way, he understood the questions and answers of the civics test instead of memorizing the questions and answers without adequately understanding what he was reading in English.
