Mexican Lawyers in USA- Oftentimes, many individuals believe that they simply can just appear at a United States border post or embassy and be welcomed in once they explain why they would be a great addition to the society of the country. Sadly, this is not the case, as those who wish to come to the country, whether it’s temporarily or permanently, will need to determine whether they fit into a specific eligibility category for either a green card or a nonimmigrant visa.
From there, they will need to submit an application to one or more of the agencies that are responsible for carrying out the various immigration laws, thereby requesting either a visa or a specific immigration status.
Those who wish to make the United States their permanent home will need a green card, which will enable individuals to both live and work in the country, as well as travel both in and out of the country with very few restrictions. On the other hand, those who wish to remain in the country for a limited time will require a nonimmigrant visa, which will enable them to take part in specified activities such as visiting, studying, and working until their time in the country expires.
Once an individual is able to determine what type of visa or green card they are eligible for, the next step is determining how to obtain it. Many individuals will be able to obtain a visa at a United States consulate prior to leaving for the United States. On the other hand, if they are already in the country legally, they must meet a specific set of criteria in order to be able to apply to adjust their status to become a permanent resident or to change their status to another type of visa.
All possibilities for a green card or visa are established under United States federal law, which are found in Title 8 of the United States Code, as well as in the Immigration and Nationality Act. Furthermore, information regarding how USCIS carries out these laws can be found at Title 8 of the Code of Federal Regulations. Legally, the best option for obtaining professional assistance with immigration status is to obtain the services of an experienced immigration attorney as opposed to going to USCIS to obtain advice. This is because those who are staffed at the front desk are not well trained and if someone is provided with the wrong information, they take no responsibility for this, even if it results in an individual being deported or destroys their chances of being able to immigrate to the United States.
One thing that an immigrant should never do is to lie to the United States government, as this will greatly ruin your chances of obtaining either a green card or visa. Doing so will result in an immigrant not being able to enter the country and also potentially being permanently banned from receiving a green card.
There is also the chance that an immigrant can be prevented from entering the United States for any reason as well, regardless of what specific eligibility they fall into. Even if they have married a citizen, been accepted into school, or received an offer for a job, the country always has the right to deny citizenship, and not only because something is wrong with an application. In fact, current immigration law details a list of all sorts of things, such as specific diseases and crimes, that can disqualify someone from being able to obtain citizenship.
