Immigration is the act of entering a country to permanently live and/or work there. But US immigration laws are also more widespread. For example, entering the country for almost any purpose, including a temporary stay for a certain period. At Human Right Advocacy Firm, Our immigration attorney can help you with adjustment of status and cancellation of removal cases.
The main reasons for obtaining immigration status in the United States are family reunification, in-demand work skills, and investment. US immigration laws also cover refugees, asylum seekers, and those who win the "immigration lottery" – DV lottery.
Each case has its own procedure for obtaining legal immigrant status and only Best Immigration Lawyer in NYC can help.
Family bonds

Suppose you have a relative who is a citizen or lawful permanent resident of the United States. In that case, you can immigrate based on your relationship with the petitioner.

The applicant may be eligible for lawful permanent residence based on immediate family members set by US immigration law. The immediate family members, such as spouses and children, have the priority in obtaining immigrant status. Other relatives should wait a little longer.

A petition for an alien relative shall be filed by an immigrant relative (also known as a "sponsor") together with proof of family relationship. In addition, the petition must be approved by the US Citizenship and Immigration Services..



Employment

If you want to get immigrant status based on permanent employment, you have to meet the following conditions:

  • Applicant must be eligмible for one of the five categories of labor immigration recognized by US law.
  • The applicant's employer must complete and submit an application for a labor certification with the Employment and Training Administration of the Department of Labor.
  • The employer must also get the immigrant visa application approved.



Investment

In rare cases, if you are a large investor, you may qualify for immigrant status. To do this, the following conditions must be met:

  • Investment shall meet a certain dollar threshold, benefits the US economy, and create or maintain a certain number of jobs.
  • The Immigrant Petition by Alien Investor must be filed and approved by the government.



Refugee/Asylee

To be eligible for refugee or asylee status, the applicant must have been subject to past or future persecution based on race, religion, nationality, political opinion, or membership in a particular group in their country. A person who is found eligible for refugee or asylee status must also be free of certain medical conditions and must undergo a security screening.



Visa lottery

Each year, the Department of State selects 110,000 applicants from among many candidates. However, as soon as 50,000 immigrant visas have been issued or the fiscal year is over, the lottery will be closed. 

Keep in mind that immigrant visas are not available for people whose country of origin has sent more than 50,000 immigrants to the United States in the past five years.
