The future for immigrants in the U.S. is full of hope. Obtaining permanent resident status or becoming a U.S. citizen is a distinct possibility for many people. However, too many people are afraid to confront their immigration problems and seek help.
Many of these people mistakenly believe that their case is hopeless because they entered the U.S. under an assumed name, or because they overstayed their allowable time in the U.S. by several years. Other people mistakenly believe they have no options because their U.S. citizen spouse has died, or they are simply afraid to apply for U.S. citizenship because of a prior criminal conviction. Regardless of a person’s individual circumstances, what everybody has in common is that they have created a life for themselves in the U.S. and they want to continue that life.
However, since problems don’t resolve themselves, continuing to live in the U.S. may only be possible if you confront your immigration problem. The first step is to consult a knowledgeable and experienced immigration attorney.
