Connecticut's fourth district is a diverse and dynamic part of the nation. It is part of the greater New York City metro region and the gateway to New England. As you might expect, my district is home to people from all parts of the world, and many have questions about federal immigration procedures or specific cases.

A good place to start is the homepage of U.S. Citizenship and Immigration Services (USCIS).  There, you can find links to information about obtaining citizenship, green cards, working in the U.S. and more.

The USCIS website also has a very useful tool called "My Case Status" which will let you know where a case stands. You can also sign up to receive case updates by email or text message when using this tool on the USCIS website. 

In addition to USCIS, you can also call my office if you need assistance with a case or need help finding local community resources. If you need assistance with an immigration case, question or issue, please contact my Bridgeport office at (203) 333-6600. While we cannot guarantee you a favorable outcome, we will do our best to help you receive a fair and timely response to your problem.

Please do not hesitate to call (203) 333-6600.

We are happy to help you with all ongoing cases and immigration is a priority for my office. Do not hesitate to reach out. My staff and I are dedicated to working with you to resolve your issue.
