Immigration to the United States is a challenging but worthy goal. While the road forward will include obstacles, immigrating to the United States can afford you and your family immense opportunities, and a better understanding of the process can help. One of the most important steps anyone who has their sights set on immigration should take is working closely with an experienced immigration attorney in Greenfield

If You Have a Family Member Who is Already a Citizen

If someone in your family is already a citizen or Lawful Permanent Resident of the United States, their sponsorship can help you immigrate to the country and may help you gain citizenship of your own. Anyone who is in the United States on a work visa, however, can only sponsor their minor children and their spouse. The government sometimes allows hardship exceptions for people who are in the country illegally but have a family member who is a citizen or Lawful Permanent Resident

If You Are Coming to the United States to Work

If you are a non-citizen who will be working in the United States, the government’s approval is required, and your employer may instigate the process on your behalf. In order to work in this country permanently, you will need to achieve permanent resident status, which you may know as having a green card and which is as close to being a citizen as you can achieve – outside of actually becoming a citizen. 

Once you obtain a green card, you can pursue citizenship through the naturalization process, which will require all the following of you:

  • That you have a basic grasp of the English language
  • That you have a basic understanding of the nation’s laws
  • That you have a fine, upstanding character

If You Are Going for the Gusto

If your immigration dreams include citizenship, there are additional requirements that you will be tasked with. Everyone who is born here is granted citizenship as a matter of the Fourteenth Amendment, but anyone who is not born here must earn citizenship via a different means, which include the following:

  • You are very likely to be afforded American citizenship if at least one of your parents is a citizen of this country and meet other requirements
  • If you serve in the U.S. military, you will be afforded a less challenging path forward toward citizenship. 

Temporary Status

There are a variety of methods for obtaining temporary immigration status or non-immigrant status, including:

  • Tourism for either business or pleasure
  • Education or school exchange programs
  • Employment
  • Humanitarian relief

Under this category, foreign nationals are allowed to be in the United States for the time frame specified.
