Answering Your Pressing Questions About Immigration
The immigration process can be overwhelmingly complex. Fortunately, you do not have to go through it alone. At Kurzban Kurzban Tetzeli and Pratt P.A., our immigration attorneys have years of experience assisting clients with immigration-related issues. Most of our clients come to us with many questions; here, we will attempt to answer a few of them.
What Does U.S. Citizenship And Immigration Services (USCIS) Consider When Determining Status?
When considering an applicant’s immigration status, the USCIS considers several factors. These include whether an applicant has family in the U.S., has a permanent employment opportunity, is making a capital investment over a certain dollar threshold, or qualifies for asylum.
How Long Does It Take To Become A Permanent U.S. Resident?
Immigrants have several options to reside legally in the U.S. Whether you are considering a visa, a green card or citizenship, the duration will vary depending on your personal circumstances. Some cases take a few weeks; others take several months or many years. We can give you an estimation of how long your case will take and can work to expedite the process as much as possible.
What Documents Will I Need?
When you are applying for a visa, green card, citizenship or asylum, you will need a few crucial documents, including:
- Your interview appointment letter
- A current passport
- Translations of any documents not written in English
- Civil documents such as a birth certificate, adoption papers, marriage certificate and military records
- A letter from your employer, for employment-based visas
Should I Hire A Lawyer?
Many people attempt to navigate the immigration process on their own. This is possible, but there are many bureaucratic obstacles that can cost you time, effort and money. If you want the proceedings to be as smooth and quick as possible, you should retain an experienced immigration attorney.
