If you’re going through the process of immigration, there’s a lot you need to know. However, you can find a lot of information to help you on the USCIS website. That’s the first place to start when you need to know what to do. There are various ways that you can qualify for permanent residency in the United States. For many people, the way of qualifying for a green card is through a family member or work. There are a number of other categories however. If you’re not sure if you qualify, or how, you can find information on this website that can point you in the right direction.
For parents, spouses and minor children of U. S. Citizens, there is no limit put on the number of green cards that can be awarded each year. For other types of relatives of U. S. Citizens, or for those of permanent residents, there are limitations as to how many can be awarded. In either case, the applications must be filled out correctly and sent in with all the necessary documentation.
It’s important to make sure you understand exactly what needs to be sent with the application and that it is all done correctly as well. Applications that are not filled out correctly or documentation that is not sent according to the proper specification will result in needing to resubmit applications.
Even if the application is accepted, the person wishing to immigrate must still go through an interview process. There are a few reasons why a person may be denied a green card. This can include being viewed as a health risk or as a security risk.
The United States Citizenship and Immigration Services also handles applications from people who wish to become naturalized citizens. There is a list of requirements that a person has to fulfill in order to be eligible for this. As with the green card, being eligible is only part of the process. The application must be made and accepted, and the person must pass the naturalization test as well as the interview process.
It is possible to fill out the forms and apply for permanent residency or for naturalization on your own. The USCIS website has a huge amount of information explaining all the details that you need to know. However, it can still be a bit confusing, especially if you are not fluent in English.
Although the website itself is available in Spanish, the forms and the explanations are in English. Therefore, it can be helpful to have someone else go over all the information with you. If you need to pay someone to do this, it may be best to hire an immigration lawyer. This way you can be more assured of getting the correct information and having your application be filled out for the most likelihood of success.
The process of immigration can be really stressful, but there is a lot of information available to help you get through it. It’s really important that you get your application put together properly, so make sure you get whatever help you need to do so successfully.
