I-751 Petition to Remove Conditions on Permanent Residency

By |October 8th, 2019|Categories: Guides|Tags: , , |

Filing an I-751 is the next step towards naturalization for those who have received legal status through marriage. An I-751 is a petition to remove the conditions of the 2 year marriage green card. Much like the process of obtaining your marriage green card, an I-751 requires producing substantial evidence to prove your bona fide marriage. Once your petition is approved, the conditions on your permanent residency status will be removed, and you will receive your standard green card of 10 years residency.

The Trump Administration’s New “Public Charge” Rule is a Major New Barrier to Immigration

By |September 22nd, 2019|Categories: Guides|Tags: , , |

One of the traditional hurdles in obtaining LPR status is proving to US immigration authorities that you will not become a “public charge” while in the United States. In other words, you must prove that you will not rely on US government financial assistance to support you. The Trump administration recently issued new rules that render this hurdle a much more difficult one to leap over.

How to Win Your I-212 Waiver Application

By |September 17th, 2019|Categories: Guides|Tags: , |

An I-212 waiver application is not a visa application -- instead, it is an application for permission to apply for a visa after you have been deported (removed). This means that even if your I-212 application is approved, your visa application could still be turned down. You must apply for an I-212 waiver from abroad -- you cannot apply while in the US.

US immigration law excludes certain categories of people from entering the US or, if they are already in the US, from re-entering the US once they leave. The exclusion categories are broad and sometimes vaguely defined (committing a “crime of moral turpitude”, for example, can result in a finding of inadmissibility).

How to Avoid Deportation Based on a Criminal Conviction?

By |July 9th, 2019|Categories: Guides|Tags: , , , |

Undocumented immigrants are subject to various legal consequences if they are caught violating immigration laws or participating in criminal acts. The standard of abiding by the law is much higher for people who are not US permanent residents, as they may face the consequence of being deported or removed, by the US federal government to their home country. If you are an undocumented immigrant or a foreign national, facing the process of removal may be fearsome and may cause you much worry. However, there are many steps you can take to avoid deportation when charged with a criminal conviction.

Winning Asylum Before USCIS and Immigration Court

By |June 11th, 2019|Categories: Guides|Tags: , , , , , , , , |

Asylum is a US immigration status that is based on humanitarian concerns for people who have good reason to fear that harm will come to them if they return to their home countries. If you receive it, you will be allowed you to live and work in the US for an indefinite period of time. Asylum is granted only to people who are present in the US, however. If you are located abroad, you should apply for refugee status, which offers equivalent benefits.
