Sponsoring family members for immigration visas

Florida residents may be interested in immigration visa requirements for family members. Family-based visas depend on the relationship the petitioner has with the individual, and whether the petitioner is a U.S. citizen or lawful permanent resident. Immigration law differentiates between immediate family and remote family in terms of limitations on the visas allowed each year. Priority status is different based on whether the sponsor is an LPR or a U.S citizen.

Naturalization through military service

Current and former military service members in Florida may be eligible for U.S. citizenship based on their service. Requirements vary depending on whether the service was during peacetime or during a period of hostility. Under both types, the military member will be required to have a good understanding of U.S. civics as well as the ability to speak, read and write in English.

Obtaining asylum in the U.S.

Florida residents may benefit from learning more about how people qualify for asylum. According to the U.S. Department of Homeland Security, individuals may seek refuge and protection in the United States if they are being persecuted in their native country for their political beliefs, affiliations with specific social parties, race, nationality or religion. People who qualify for asylum and apply within 1 year of arrival are allowed to remain in the country.
