New Jersey Immigration FAQs
Immigration law can be a complex legal area for many people. Below, we will answer some of the most common questions our clients ask.
US citizens and permanent residents can apply for some of their immediate family members to immigrate to the US through a family petition.
Not all family relationships are recognized for U.S. immigration purposes. For example, a U.S. citizen may petition for his or her siblings or parents, but may not petition for a grandparent.
When the US government attempts to deport a person, they will be placed in removal proceedings. Removal proceedings are conducted in immigration court before a federal immigration judge.
In most cases, a person can successfully defend himself in immigration court if he has an attorney to represent him. At Curbelo Law we have enough experience to be able to represent you efficiently before the court.
The diversity lottery visa is a limited visa, so it is only available through a “lottery”. This process is issued annually by the US Department of State and is for people from countries where visas are not easily used.
However, a person abroad must be admissible to the US to use these visas.
Getting a job in the US is a great way to enter the country, although employment visas are the most common, there are similar options available. Most of our clients apply for a work certificate, but these are included in work visas. In specific cases they may even qualify for extraordinary ability visas.
If consular processing is not an option for you, you may be able to apply for an immigrant visa through a US consul in your foreign country. At the end of this process, you will be able to travel to the US and be admitted as a lawful permanent resident.
Some people may require a waiver of inadmissibility to enter the US based on consular processing. This can be a complex and daunting period, so our immigration experts will be able to guide you through the process.
If you are not eligible for political asylum, you can apply for withholding of removal or under the Convention Against Torture (CAT). But keep in mind that people who have been granted withholding of removal or under CAT cannot adjust their status to permanent resident status.
When a defendant (the defendant in immigration court) loses their case, they can file an appeal with the Board of Immigration Appeals (BIA). There are strict time limits for filing appeals, so you should seek the advice of our qualified immigration attorney to do so.
As long as you live and work in the US with a Green Card, you may be able to apply for naturalization, the path to American citizenship. However, you must meet the necessary requirements for it.
To legally move to the US, your fiancé(e) can apply for a K-1 fiancé(e) visa. Once you are married, your spouse will be able to change that status to permanent resident status.
Eventually, over the years, the spouse can seek US citizenship if she wishes. It is a complex process, so she will need the help of specialized immigration lawyers in New Jersey.
