Millions of people want to immigrate to the United States every year, and they soon find that the process is not easy. There are many possible solutions that can help foreigners enter the United States either on a temporary or permanent basis. It is important that immigrants are aware of the type of status they are eligible for, and that they also take the proper steps to ensure that they achieve the immigration status they are hoping for. Whatever an individual’s needs are related to immigration law, they need practice advice and efficient solutions. It is for this reason that anyone wishing to immigrate to the country speaks to a Naperville immigration lawyer that can help them navigate the complex system.
When individuals want to come to the United States to work, there are a number of possible ways they can do it. Employment in the United States typically starts off as temporary, but it can result in permanent residency. There are a number of different work visas available for anyone that wishes to enter the United States on an employment basis. To qualify for a work visa, individuals must have certain skills and those will depend on the type of work visa obtained. Certain visas allow immigrants to receive permanent residency upon entry into the United States, and these individuals will receive their green card soon after.
Employment is not the only way to enter the United States. Family members can sponsor a loved one that remains in another country to help them immigrate to the United States. When this sponsorship is successful, family members can secure lawful permanent residency in the United States, otherwise known as a green card. Currently, family visas make up approximately 65% of legal immigration every year.
Many people think that the terms of permanent resident status and citizen are interchangeable. This is not true, but obtaining permanent residency status or a green card can provide much relief for immigrants. Individuals that have a green card can legally live and work in the United States and eventually apply for citizenship. Green cards must be renewed every few years, and it is important that immigrants know when this renewal date is so they are not placed into removal proceedings.
Unfortunately, USCIS places many immigrants into deportation and removal procedures every year. Their reasons for this are not always sound and immigrants facing deportation still have rights. Even when leaving the country is unavoidable, there are certain steps that should be taken to protect a person’s right to attempt to enter the country lawfully once again. It is crucial that anyone placed into deportation proceedings speaks to an immigration lawyer that can ensure their rights are protected and create for them the strong defense they need.

Great work from Brittni Rivera, extremely professional. I highly recommend to go with them especially for U visa cases.
Both Jake, who has since relocated, and Lauren (current) are a saving grace to those who they’ve helped. Lauren, who I am working with currently, cannot be more attentive, understanding, and humble in the work and reassurance she gives you. She never makes you feel like you are any less due to your circumstance, she speaks to you more humanely and with compassion more than even a friend or family may. If you’re in the market for an attorney that cares, does her best to accommodate your circumstance and limitations while working your case, I can not recommend enough Lauren.…
Very intelligent, very much helpful, and always answer any question in your mind. Always immediate replies to my questions. Very much trustful. Thank u very much.
Simply put, I shouldn't be here. I had a really complex immigration case and all the firms that we consulted with told us that I virtually had no chance of staying here in the United States for my son. All except Kriezelman Burton.
