Immigration is an immensely vital part of U.S. law that governs processes for foreign individuals to become U.S. citizens or secure a legal status that would enable them to stay in the U.S. without fear of being removed or deported. Foreign nationals can choose from a broad range of methods to attain legal status. To help make the entire process easier for you, our skilled Dayton immigration attorney at The VanNoy Firm can help you navigate the complicated immigration process.
Temporary visas are required for individuals who want to stay in the U.S. for a short time. There are different kinds of non-immigrant visas, and you should choose one that specifically authorizes the activity for which you’re going to the U.S. For example, the B-2 visa is for individuals traveling to the U.S. for medical treatment or leisure. Likewise, language or academic students should apply for the F-1 visa and should strictly adhere to the visa’s intended purpose.
All people who have lawful permanent residency in the U.S. have a permanent resident card (PRC), more commonly known as the green card. Lawful permanent residents are immigrants who have been given benefits, privileges, and rights to legally and permanently live in the country. Foreign nationals who want to pursue permanent residency in the U.S. can apply for, replace, or renew their green cards through the USCIS. They can also petition green cards for their family members.
Besides being official immigrants under the law, green card holders likewise have the option of seeking U.S. citizenship through the naturalization process. It is very important to note that there have been reports of green card scams in which scammers take advantage of individuals who are not familiar with U.S. immigration policies and processes. So before you agree to anything about green cards or permanent visas, talk to a Dayton immigration attorney for proper legal advice.
Foreign nationals or citizens, through the naturalization process, can become U.S. citizens, provided that they meet the eligibility requirements. But the application process for citizenship could be a long and arduous process, depending on your specific circumstances. Even seemingly negligible mistakes could result in the postponement or denial of an application, and reapplying could double your costs.
Deportation happens when the U.S. orders a person to leave the United States. Also called removal, deportation could be an extremely terrifying situation for the person getting deported and their family as well. The laws governing deportation are very complicated so getting legal guidance from a skilled immigration lawyer is best.
