In Florida and across the country, tens of thousands of people are gearing up for the 2019 holiday season. Many households include members who are immigrants. Sadly, some of them are currently facing adjustment of status problems that may be threatening to put a damper on their holiday joy.
There are many types of immigration processes that involve a status adjustment. For instance, someone might wish to apply for a green card based on his or her marriage to a U.S. citizen. Another person might be studying to take required tests in order to become a naturalized U.S. citizen.
From employment-based visas to asylum seeking, there are any number of issues that must be resolved in order for a person to get all of his or her immigration documents in order and obtain a desired adjustment of status. If someone does not initiate every required step and satisfy all eligibility prerequisites, it may not only delay his or her goals but could possibly lead to immediate deportation, depending on the situation. The last thing anyone wants to do is spend the holidays in a detention center.
The good news is that many adjustment of status issues can be resolved. It is often easier to do so when guidance and support is sought from an experienced immigration law attorney. A Florida attorney can clarify applicable laws and can act on behalf of a client to protect his or her rights and best interests, especially if a problem has arisen that has prompted the need to go to court. Cuevas, Garcia & Torres, P.A., are committed to helping clients determine the best course of action to resolve immigration-related matters in as swift and efficient a manner as possible.
