Understanding Immigration Law And Other Details Are Necessary
Immigration has a broad and varied impact on our culture and society. Despite the overall benefit of immigration, the process can be daunting. If you are concerned about immigration, hiring a reputable Philadelphia Immigration lawyer can be a wise decision. Once the attorney-client relationship is established, your attorney can help make the immigration process smoother, more understandable, and less stressful for you and your family.
Immigration law can be quite strict, and before accepting any application, the federal government tends to check every detail. A single mistake can leave you facing denial and delay.
The factors that make an immigration application most likely to succeed are clarity, supporting documentation, and transparency.
Immigrants come to the country with different ages, educational degrees, and occupational strengths. Understandably, they apply for different visa types depending on their needs.
Whatever your situation, the legal professionals at our office will help you find the visa best suited to you and your family. Remember, your attorney can only help you if he or she understands your entire situation. This is why it is important to be completely open and honest when preparing your application with your lawyer. Your attorney will be able to anticipate the issues and questions that may be raised, and your honesty will help them build the best defense.
Four types of Immigrant Status
According to the United States Citizenship and Immigration Services (USCIS), there are four immigration status types. Many factors will impact your eligibility for each of these statuses, and it is always better to have an experienced Philadelphia Immigration Lawyer beside you regardless of what you seek. The four mentioned statuses are:
- United States Citizen;
- Lawful Permanent Resident status (LPR);
- Temporary Visitor Visa; or
- Undocumented immigrant status
Our competent lawyers understand the law and are determined to see that your application complies with government regulations. Let’s take a glimpse at different types of immigration status.
- United States Citizen
People born in the United States, even those who lived somewhere else their entire life, may still be eligible to qualify for American Citizenship. For example, if a child is born on US soil to non-citizen parents, the child may still be a United States citizen and eligible to return to the US as an adult. The child would not likely have to go through the naturalization process like others who are foreign-born immigrants.
Additionally, you can apply for immigration if one of your parents is a U.S. Citizen, regardless of how they obtained citizenship or whether you live in America. This does require application approval.
- Lawful Permanent Resident status or LPR
LPR is for those who receive a green card after spending a particular number of years in the United States. According to a report, more than a million immigrants receive Green Card/ LPR stats yearly.
Types of Green Cards are;
- Family-based green cards;
- Employment-based green cards;
- Humanitarian green cards;
- Diversity lottery green cards; and
- Longtime-resident green cards.
- Temporary Visitor Visa
This type of visa is provided to people who come to the U.S. for a short period. Depending on their travel reasons, different types of temporary visas are issued. These include visitor visas like the B2, business visas like the B1, and many tourist visas. All these immigrants have to leave the US and return to their native countries after the expiration of their visas. The length of different types of visas can range from one month to ten years.
- Undocumented immigrant status
According to a report, around 62% of illegal immigrants in the United States stay even after their visas’ expiry date. So many entering legally remain in a non-compliant status. Others, however, enter the United States illegally. These persons can be detained and face severe circumstances, including incarceration and deportation. Leaving the country before your visa expires is always good to avoid legal hassles.
