How long does it take for an illegal immigrant to become legal?
Depending on the way you become a legal citizen, the time it takes to become a legal citizen can vary.
- If done through marriage, an immediate relative is eligible for a U.S. green card as soon as the application process is completed and approved.
- If you are in the United States illegally because you stayed past the expiration date on a valid visa, rather than having entered illegally (without inspection), consider yourself lucky: Your legal entry qualifies you for an exception, under which you should be able to apply for your green card without leaving the United States, using a procedure called “adjustment of status.”
- If you join the military, the law allows you to apply for U.S. citizenship. You don’t have to go through the usual step of applying for a green card first. You must, however, enlist (sign up) while on U.S. territory, such as the Canal Zone, American Samoa, Swains Island, or a noncommercial U.S. ship. Joining the military is one of the fastest ways to become a U.S. citizen. If you go through the asylum route, you can apply for a green card one year after your approval, and for U.S. citizenship four years after that.
Can you be deported for driving without a license?
Although driving without a license is not a deportable offense under federal immigration laws, for undocumented immigrations it can lead to being put into deportation/removal proceedings. The Deadwyler-Heuman Law Firm, LLC, excels on the connection between immigration and criminal proceedings and can help people in both areas.
What is DACA and is it still available?
DACA stands for Deferred Action for Childhood Arrivals. It was an executive order under President Barack Obama granting protection for students and young adults who entered the U.S. illegally as minors. Yes, the program is still in place for undocumented immigrants who have been living in the shadows. We help people with DACA renewals and related immigration relief.
What is a green card?
A green card is an immigration status. (It’s not an actual card). It means that you have been granted lawful permanent residency by the U.S. government. Unlike a temporary visa, a green card allows you to stay in the United States indefinitely and work anywhere in the U.S. without restrictions. Green cards must be renewed every 10 years. You can lose your green card (permanent resident status) by allowing it to expire, committing immigration fraud or being convicted of certain crimes. Green cards can be employment-based (sponsored by a U.S. employer), family-based (sponsored by a U.S. citizen or permanent resident) or humanitarian-based for immigrants and asylum seekers who are victims of crime, domestic violence or persecution.
