Just in from the Nassau Bar Association:
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, April 29, 2014, 6 – 7:30 p.m. at NCBA’s headquarters in Mineola. An Immigration Officer from the Garden City 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.
This free seminar is another effort of NCBA’s BOLD (Bridge Over Language Divides) Program to be more responsive to the changing ethnic diversity of Nassau County by helping to educate and bring legal services to Nassau residents where English is not the primary language spoken.
The Nassau County Bar Association can instantly provide translation services in 170 languages for any callers who may need help understanding legal assistance in their native tongue. In addition, NCBA’s Lawyer Referral Service (516-747-4832) can refer callers to attorneys who are fluent in many foreign languages, including Spanish, Russian, French, Hebrew, Creole, Farsi, German Greek, Hindi, Iranian, Italian and Urdu.
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. Free USCIS study materials will be provided. For more information, visit www.nassaubar.org.
