When trying to avoid trouble and jumping through all the legal hoops necessary for U.S. immigration, its best you seek the help of an El Paso immigration law firm that can guide you through the process. Not only is a well-experienced lawyer able to guide you but also help you prevent delays.
Having delays on your application is the most common occurrence and it’s best if you plan to experience delays rather than expecting a fast process. If you are in the U.S and your work permit or status needs to be renewed, understand that the USCIS (formerly known as the INS) is extremely backed up. It is best to plan on turning in your application far in advance, especially if your legal status has an expiration date on it. By falling out of good standing status, the immigration authorities may arrest you.
If you have a green card, consider filing for U.S. citizenship as soon as you can legally. This will protect you from deportation and help you get a more secure status for your close family members. In most cases, people have to wait five years after their green card approval before becoming eligible to apply for citizenship. There are instances where people can apply sooner, which you may discuss with an immigration law firm. Keep your contact information up to date with all offices and legal communication you have. If an important notice concerning your case does not reach you, it can cause further complications to your status and delay the process even further.
