Florida has been the home to a large number of immigrants for a long time now but the size of the unauthorized population is declining as deportations are increasing. Make sure your application gets to the U.S. government correctly and as soon as possible.
Immigration can be a grueling process, especially if you go at it alone.
Our first tip is to work with a licensed immigration attorney to walk you through the process. This will help eliminate the chance of errors that can create problems with obtaining your residence or green card. A great immigration attorney will also be able to provide the correct guidance for other related obstacles.
Make sure you disclose all vital information to your immigration lawyer so that she is fully prepared to fight for you.
Always keep original copies of all documents that you are submitting. These may be necessary for future endeavors.
When you get your permanent resident card or green card, avoid any arrests or legal trouble. A criminal charge can ultimately result in deportation.
If you’re going to visit another country for a prolonged period of time, make sure you have proof that this is not a permanent stay. If you don’t, this could result in possibly losing your residency in the U.S. due to presumed abandonment of status.
