For individuals who wish to come to live in the United States, there are many options available. Unfortunately, obtaining citizenship through any of these methods is not easy. Immigration law in the country is extremely complex, and it is also always changing. A DuPage County immigration lawyer can help anyone wishing to come to the United States navigate the system and provide the best chance of a successful outcome.
Under the Immigration and Nationality Act, individuals and employees can enter the United States on either a temporary or a permanent basis. Employees should understand that there are several different types of immigrant and non-immigrant visas they can obtain to live and work in the United States. Employers should understand that while they also have many options when it comes to recruiting people from a foreign country, they must also always comply with the law. This compliance mainly means employers must verify a worker’s identity and establish that the worker is legally allowed to live in the United States.
Both United States citizens and green card holders can sponsor family members from a foreign country to come to the United States. Citizens of the United States have more options and can sponsor more categories of family members. These categories include:
In some instances, a spouse or child also qualifies for a K-3 or K-4 Nonimmigrant Visa during the time an application for permanent residence is pending.
Green card holders can sponsor a spouse, unmarried children under the age of 21, and married children, regardless of their age.
In addition to helping individuals enter the country, an immigration lawyer can also help individuals who are under the threat of deportation or removal from the country. People face deportation for many reasons, including the commission of a crime, committing fraud within an application for immigration, and more.
Many times, individuals facing deportation did nothing wrong. They may have made an innocent mistake on their application for immigration, or law enforcement may have mistaken them for someone who committed a crime. Still, U.S. Immigration and Customs Enforcement (ICE) is relentless in their pursuit of finding these individuals and placing them into removal proceedings. A DuPage County immigration attorney can help anyone facing deportation.
