Gaining entry into the United States and remaining with any degree of permanency is no easy feat, and immigration law, which is a fundamental pillar of the law, guides the process. Immigration law is subject to relatively frequent guideline changes and is complicated enough to begin with. All of this makes working closely with an experienced Hollister immigration attorney from the outset the best path forward.
Those living in America who are not citizens of the country must be greenlighted by the U.S. government in order to find employment and work legally. In order to live and work permanently – or on a long-term basis – in the states, you will need to acquire what is universally referred to as a green card (or permanent residence card).
If you have a family member who is a citizen of the United States or who is a Lawful Permanent Resident, he or she may be able to help you obtain your own legal status. Qualification of this type typically begins with entering the country legally, but the U.S. does have exceptions based on hardship and other factors.
Full citizenship is the gold standard of immigration, and while becoming a citizen of the United States is definitely a journey, it can be well worth your dedicated effort. Everyone who is born in the United States is an American citizen by virtue of the Fourteenth Amendment, and there are additional means that generally phase into citizenship, including:
Other paths for obtaining citizenship in the United States include the following:

Patricia has been so helpful and provided excellent service. My husband and I are so grateful for all the help she has provided to help me immigrate to the United States. We really could not have gotten through it without her help. A big thank you to Patricia\'s assistant, Ingrid as well for always being prompt with responses and helping us get all the paperwork ready at each stage. I highly recommend Patricia for anyone who needs immigration help.
Thank you Miranda and team for the excellent service provided. Miranda is a compassionate, understating, extremely knowledgeable and professional attorney. Her team was always on top of everything making my legal process less stressful. I could never thank Miranda and her assistant Ingrid for holding my hand throughout this difficult process (literally). Miranda is one of the BEST immigration lawyers ever! I would definitely recommend her.
They represented my custody case and handled it like it is their own case and they are best in Monterey County.
The entire team at MMM are superstars! I appreciate all the time and prep that went into my original case many years ago. And now recently, I asked for some help on a follow-up custody matter that I felt I could handle myself but just needed their expertise to properly represent all the important details. They are knowledgeable, extremely thorough, and prepared me for every possible scenario. I can't thank them enough!
My partner and I sought legal advice on bringing my fiance' to the United States with this office after having called a few immigration attorney offices around Monterey County. Having never sought legal advice before it was a refreshing experience in which we both really felt that Patricia listened intently to our goals and needs, and then not only gave us thorough advice, but also she really showed a lot of empathy with our situation and all the challenges we faced in what we trying to do. I would definitely recommend this office for anyone who is unclear about what..
Working with Patricia was a professional encounter unlike any other, an absolute 5-star experience. From the first moment, we walked into our consultation until the moment our case was closed and my husband walked away with his permanent resident card Patricia was communicative, professional, and thorough. Her team contacted us every step of the way providing valuable process and law changes we would not have been able to catch if we tried to navigate this endeavor alone. Patricia answered our endless question stream with thoughtfulness and care, calling us countless times to ensure we were clear on every piece of..
