Legalization of Immigrants in the U.S.
Serving Orlando, FL
Legalization concerns the issue of whether or not immigrants who are in the United States illegally should be given provisions to receive a green card or citizenship. Under the Immigration Reform and Control Act, individuals who reside in the United States illegally can be given legal permission to remain. Over the past few years, immigration reform programs have been introduced and debated.
A Path to Legalization
A path to legalization for illegal immigrants is constantly being discussed across the country because there are millions of legal and illegal immigrants residing in the country. Federal policies can completely change the process of legalization either in favor of or against those who have been aggressively pursuing permanent resident status. Many illegal residents have obtained eligibility to apply for legal residency in the country. This process is done under the Immigration Reform and Control Act. There are two stages of the process of legalization. The first stage is to obtain temporary residence and the second is to secure permanent residence.
In order for this process to proceed, continuous presence in the United States must be maintained. The applicant will have to demonstrate a general understanding and comprehension of the English language, U.S. history, and U.S. government. Success is attainable but not easy. It is important to take every precaution necessary when pursuing legalization. One precaution you can take is to enlist the help of one of our attorneys from Brown Immigration Law to assist you with an adjustment of status application. The process often involves dealing with multiple government agencies, which can be confusing and time-consuming; however, an experienced attorney can help expedite the process and ensure that you are completing each step in accordance with all laws and requirements.
