Mineola, NY - October 7, 2016 - Immigrants who are getting ready to take the final steps to become American citizens can receive some free assistance through the Nassau County Bar Association’s seminar, “US Citizenship Interview Demonstration,” on Tuesday, October 25, 2016, 6 - 7:30 p.m. at NCBA’s headquarters, 15th Street on the corner of West Street, Mineola.
An immigration officer from the Long Island Office of the US Citizenship and Immigration Services will discuss the naturalization process and demonstrate the questions that may be asked during the required US Citizenship interview and exam. Attorneys from the NCBA Immigration Law Committee will provide free consultations about specific issues and answer questions. Free USCIS study materials will be provided.
This free seminar is another effort of NCBA’s BOLD (Bridge Over Language Divides) Program. Attorneys fluent in foreign languages volunteer to interpret complex legal issues for those where English is not the primary language spoken. In addition, NCBA’s Lawyer Referral Service (516-747-4832) can refer callers to attorneys who are fluent in many foreign languages, including Spanish, Haitian Creole, Korean, Italian and Farsi.
Seating for “Free US Citizenship Interview Demonstration” is limited, and reservations are required. Those interested in attending are asked to call NCBA at 516-747-4070 to guarantee a seat at the program. For more information call 516-747-4070.
