Having a Green Card bestows certain rights, responsibilities

Immigrants come to the United States in hopes of finding a better future. So, when they finally get their Green Card, it is a day of celebration. However, immigrants in Louisville and nationwide should know that with a Green Card comes certain rights and responsibilities.

Proposed immigration billed includes merit-based system

Immigration continues to be a hot topic in the United States as the executive branch and legislative branch grapple with different ideas for reform. The latest proposal, announced by the president, would feature a point system for evaluating potential visa holders and aim to reduce the amount of legal immigration into the country.

Marriage may be a green light for a green card

You might be one of many Kentucky residents who met the loves of their lives somewhere far away overseas. The saying that love comes around when you least expect it may be true in such cases. Falling in love with a non-U.S. citizen immediately presents certain challenges if you hope to return to the United States to get married and begin your life as a couple. According to U.S. immigration law, there are several ways to help your non-U.S. citizen fiancé obtain lawful permanent residence.

The road to a green card can be long

For many immigrants in Kentucky, getting a green card represents the peak and pinnacle of their desires. Having that card means you are welcome in the United States, granted permanent residency. Perhaps the next step after that will be full naturalization so that you can enjoy the full rights of U.S. citizenship. The green card opens up an array of possibilities.

Executive order may prevent individuals from entering U.S.

Kentucky residents may have heard of a concept called advance parole. It allows individuals applying for permanent residency in the United States to return to the country after traveling overseas. Parole may be granted to asylees or those who are in the United States as part of the Deferred Action for Childhood Arrivals program. However, President Donald Trump may sign an executive order that could make it harder for individuals to use advance parole to reenter the country.

The first steps of the immigrant visa for spouses

People still fall in love, get married, and dream of raising a family together. No amount of legislating, nor border walls are going to change that for thousands of people each year who choose to marry immigrants. But getting a green card through marriage can be quite complicated.
