Immigration Services

We assist Kentucky residents bringing a loved one into the U.S.

Love knows no bounds, not even geographically. It is not unusual for a resident of the United States, including people in Kentucky, to fall in love with someone from another country. When the relationship becomes serious and the couple is engaged or married, the couple may wish to live in the U.S. However, to legally have a foreign-born fiancé or spouse live in the U.S., the foreign-born fiancé or spouse will need a visa.

What is the general process for obtaining a Green Card?

There may be many reasons why a person would want to immigrate to the United States. Perhaps their home country is in a state of war, or in some other way is no longer safe to live in. Or they may be seeking job opportunities not available in their home country. Also, they may simply want to live with the rights and freedoms Americans enjoy. In the end, though, immigrants in Kentucky seeking U.S. Permanent Residency will need to obtain a Green Card.

Some may face deportation after loss of special status

For years, many people living in the Kentucky area and throughout the United States who were born in Haiti, the Central American countries Honduras, El Salvador and Nicaragua, as well as people born in other countries including Somalia, South Sudan, Yemen and Syria have been able to reside in the U.S. per a special status called the Temporary Protection Status. However, the U.S. Department of State announced that this special status is no longer necessary, meaning some of these individuals might now face deportation and removal.

Aggravated felonies raise the risk of deportation

Being in the United States on a green card or visa has likely provided you with many opportunities and privileges. Whether you are here with family, working your way through college or you plan to become a U.S. citizen, the process you went through to get here was undoubtedly challenging and frustrating, but worth it.

Are there any forms of relief for those facing removal?

People immigrate to the United States with a dream of a better life, but sometimes life throws them a curveball and they find themselves facing removal, also known as deportation. Such a situation may seem hopeless, but it is not. If a person in Kentucky is facing deportation and removal from the United States and back to their home country, there are several avenues of relief they may pursue in order to stay in the country.
