Frequently Asked Questions About Immigration

Many of my clients have pressing concerns about their immigration situation. Here are some of the most common questions I hear:

What’s the difference between permanent residency and U.S. citizenship?

Permanent residence is still a conditional state. If you fail to live up to the conditions of your behavior – including how long you can travel outside the United States to visit family or friends – you can still be deported. Citizenship can rarely be revoked and permits you to live, work and travel anywhere you like.

Who can apply for permanent residency in the United States?

You can become eligible to obtain permanent residence (a green card) in the United States through several different methods. Many people obtain green cards through their employment, the sponsorship of family members who are already U.S. citizens or green card holders and humanitarian options such as special visas reserved for victims of domestic violence and crime. There is also a diversity immigrant visa program, also known as the “green card lottery,” which provides up to 50,000 visas per year.

What are the options for obtaining a green card in New Jersey?

The exact steps you will need to take depend on your current situation and the method by which you hope to obtain permanent residence in the United States. Legal guidance is essential so that you do not make any missteps.

How long does the green card process take in New Jersey?

Every immigrant’s path to a green card is different, but it generally takes about one to three years for the whole process, depending upon your situation.

How can permanent residency impact my family?

Permanent residents of the United States can, through family-based immigration processes, sponsor their spouses, children, parents and certain other relatives to join them in this country. Permanent resident status also gives you the ability to live and work anywhere in the U.S. and access to financial aid for the higher education system, both of which can positively affect your family.
