Immigration law is extremely complex, yet many individuals continue to try and navigate the application process on their own. They mistakenly believe that migrating to the United States involves some minor paperwork, a signature here and a date there, and a strong desire to better one’s life, when in actuality, almost the opposite is true. While a desire to better one’s life is definitely a motivational factor in making it through the immigration application process, applying for a visa or green card is an involved and lengthy process. Not only must an individual fill out several applications, but they must meet a host of requirements, speak with several U.S. officials, and meet strict deadlines. Furthermore, there are several U.S. agencies responsible for carrying out immigration law, including U.S. Citizenship and Immigration Services (USCIS) and the U.S. Department of State (DOS), each of which has their own set of rules, eligibility requirements, and applications.
Our Joliet, IL immigration lawyers have been helping clients navigate immigration law for over forty years. Whether you are hoping to gain temporary employment in the U.S., or make a new home for your family, let our Joliet immigration law firm help you through the process and ensure the best possible outcome.
When migrating to the United States, an individual can either apply for a visa or a green card. A visa allows individuals to enter the U.S., work and/or go to school in the U.S., and live in the U.S. for a set amount of time. A green card grants individuals U.S. citizenship status, meaning that they have all of the benefits of a native U.S. citizen, such as the right to vote, rights under the constitution, the right to pay taxes, etc. Whether you are initially applying for a visa or green card, or whether you are already in the United States on legal permanent or temporary status, a host of issues can arise when dealing with immigration law. Our Joliet immigration lawyers routinely deals with the following issues:
While we always recommend that a foreign national retain the help of an immigration lawyer if they hope to migrate to the U.S. on legal terms, there are issues that require the experience and knowledge of a trained professional.
