- Children under 18 may automatically become citizens when their parents naturalize.
If you or a loved one is in need of legal assistance, call DerGarabedian, Nathan, Marino & Rodriguez at (516) 766-1619 or schedule a consultation
and review. The initial consultation is free of charge, and if we agree
to handle your case, we may work on a contingency fee basis, which means we
get paid for our services only if there is a monetary recovery of funds. In
many cases, a lawsuit or other claim must be filed before an applicable expiration
date, known as a statute of limitations. Please call right away to ensure that
you do not waive your right to possible compensation.
