Frequently asked immigration questions

How can I sponsor a family member for immigration to the United States?

U.S. citizens and permanent residents can sponsor certain family members for immigration through family-based immigrant petitions. This process typically involves filing Form I-130, Petition for Alien Relative, with the U.S. Citizenship and Immigration Services (USCIS).

What is the asylum application process, and who is eligible for asylum in the United States?

An asylum is a form of protection available to individuals who have suffered persecution and/or fear future persecution in their home country due to their race, religion, nationality, political opinion, or membership in a particular social group. To apply for asylum, individuals must be physically present in the United States and file Form I-589, Application for Asylum and for Withholding of Removal, within one year of their arrival in the United States. If you failed to file your application for asylum within one year of your entry, there are certain exceptions you might be eligible for.

What are the requirements for obtaining a green card (lawful permanent residence) in the United States?

The eligibility requirements for obtaining a green card vary depending on the specific immigrant category. Common pathways to receiving a green card include employment-based sponsorship, family-based sponsorship, refugee or asylee status, if you were a victim of a certain crime or severe form of trafficking (U-visa, VAWA and T-visa) and diversity visa lottery selection.

How can I defend against deportation proceedings in immigration court?

Individuals facing deportation proceedings have the right to be represented by an attorney and to present evidence and arguments in their defense. Common defenses against deportation include demonstrating eligibility for relief from removal, such as asylum, cancellation of removal, waiver, or adjustment of status, and challenging the legal grounds for deportation. It is essential to seek legal representation from an experienced immigration attorney to navigate deportation proceedings effectively.
